Question for Pro-Lifers
110
Thu, 02-26-2009 - 2:05pm

I'd like to know how pro-lifers feel about vaccinations. Which of you vaccinate? Which of you don't? Why or why not?

I'm asking here instead of the Vaccine Debate Board because of the number of people here I'm certain are pro-life and I'm looking for some answers and correlations.

Thanks

Good point.

You mean the measles which kills a million children a year? I'd take that a bit more seriously than a thoroughly disproven 'link' between the vaccine and autism.



Do you find it useful in debate to keep up these assertions that those on the other side are uneducated/in denial. Coz I gotta tell you, it doesn't make your argument appear strong.


No, there is no denial. Except of the autism link, because I'm satisfied that that's nonsense. The actual risks, I acknowledge and accept.

It wasn't until visiting the Vax debate board during the course of my research that I heard such a vaccine existed. That does seem

You know, all you had to do was ask for my source. That's generally the polite way to do things :o)


http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/conditions/measles2.shtml


Worldwide, the highly contagious viral disease measles still kills about a million children a year.


<Me, I'll take my kid's natural immune systems and healthy lifestyles over that of an immunized kid any day. I'll take the risk of getting a disease that's treated by fluid increase and rest over the risk of lifelong seizures any day. >


As I said previously, two people can look at the same information and come to different conclusions, as you and I have. My conclusion was that the risks of vaccination are very small indeed, whereas the diseases I'm vaccinating against are getting increasingly common here due (ironically enough) to reduced vaccination rates.



Well, let's start with the fact that the original (and I think only) study suggesting (not proving)

~I suppose I just don't understand why someone would see something like the measles a bigger risk than something like seizures or autism.~


Do you have conclusive evidence that autism is caused by immunization? Re: seizures, is there some evidence that they are less damaging than pnuemonia, etc., that can result from measles?


One of my concerns at the time was re: the risk of exposing pregnant women (including myself) to measles, which can lead to miscarriage or stillbirth.

Insulting posters doesn't = effective debate, or help.

"No, there is no denial. Except of the autism link, because I'm satisfied that that's nonsense. The actual risks, I acknowledge and accept."


I do not believe that the vaccines cause autism. However, I do believe that they very well may trigger it in those who might otherwise be predisposed to it. For example, my children. And, I kind of wonder if it's not just the mercury/thirmosel (sp??) that is the issue... Aluminum is another neuro-toxic metal that is used in an adjuvant in many of the vaccines.
