So, Law and Order SVU has always been one of my favorite shows. After last night's episode I'm not sure if I'll ever watch again. Did anyone else see this?
I think that's only a clip.
In a nutshell, it started like they were doing the Caylee Anthony case and in the blink of an eye they turned it into a murder trial against a mom who chose to not vaccinate her child.
I watched in blind rage as they put a mom on trial after she chose to not vaccinate her child, he got measles, had no symptoms and passed it to a child who later died.
I told my hubby that if the jury had found her guilty I would have thrown the iron in my hand through the tv!
It seems a bit too coincidental to me that immediately after this show that was laden with scare tactics about what happens if you don't vaccinate, our local news came on with the top story on the swine flu and that the vaccine will be available really soon.
Doesn't it take years to develop a vaccine? How could they possibly have a vaccine for an illness that has just mutated and sprung up to kill us all? (ok, a little sarcasm)
It's a good thing that networks have highly popular shows to spread their ignorance.
#1 - Any talk of forced vaccines is a serious civil liberties violation. Am I the only one who is scared at the thought that the government can make a law in which they can force you to put that crap in your child and they wouldn't be held liable for the adverse effects???
#2 - A parent that gives their child a vaccine with a live virus then takes that child to the park where another child gets the virus and later dies. Will that parent be put on trial??? Surely not.
#3 - These vaccines kill kids. Are the pharm companies on trial?
#4 - Think about the dwindling interest in flu vaccines in the last couple of years. All of a sudden we've got a scary new flu and, well what do we have here...a vaccine for it! Praise the lord!
#5 - The numbers that are thrown around regarding the number of deaths from illnesses are ridiculous. There is no background history mentioned. Living conditions are completely disregarded. No comparison between the number that died from the vaccines themselves. No comparison between the number that died from medical mistakes. Only the scary statements like "123 kids died during the measles outbreak in the 90s". Are you kidding me???? How about fixing the ridiculous reporting system so that people will know the truth about all the kids who die from vaccines?!!
Shows like last night's Law and Order are negligent and purpetuating ignorance. It frightens me to think of the people who were watching that show last night. It saddens me to think of the mom who was wondering about not vaccinating and saw that show, only to be scared into vaccinating by it.
Oh dear lord, now I'm hearing my kid's show on PBS. Martha Speaks. Seems it's a show about vaccines... What next?
