I don't vaccinate my kids because I don't feel safe jamming a needle in my kids arm. I'd rather have a professional do it

I’m autistic and the fact that there are people who hate the idea of having an autistic child so much that they’d rather their kid just die of a preventable disease is the most disheartening shit I’ve heard in a long time.

I had polio two years before the vaccine was available. It took nearly two years for me to learn to walk again without crutches. My cousin, ill at the same time, never got out of a wheelchair and became a recluse. I cannot even recall being able to run. To think that there are people calling themselves parents who would intentionally be okay with this possibility for their children, who cannot protect themselves from their parents.

It's genuinely interesting how there are MANY Last Week Tonight videos from years become re-relevant years later.

I am on the spectrum and hearing Karens saying they'd rather their kids die instead of having them share what I have is honestly horrible.

Anti-vaxx logic: This bridege has a 99.99% chance of not collapsing. I'll swim across the shark-infested river instead.
Edit: if you’re going to go into the replies, be aware that there are around 15 triggered anti vaxxers there.

Almost no one over the age of 65 is against vaccines, why?
Because thees people saw friends and family crippled or die from times before vaccines.

As a person with autism, I find it incredibly curious some people would rather have a sick or dead child than an autistic one.

My mother drank water when she was pregnant with me. I am gay.

I asked my other gay friends and all of their mothers used to drink water when they were pregnant with them. Coincidence? I think

I didn't vaccinate my son and I don't regret it.

I mean yes if you want to get picky he did catch a case of measles which he spread on to an immuno-compromised child at Kindergarten who we never saw again, and yes admittedly my son died of measles complications a few weeks after contracting it, but you know what...he never had autism, and that's a win in my book. Checkmate vaccinators!

And when we get the vaccine for Covid-19, I bet there will be people who refuse to take that too, because of some bullshit they ate up on the net.
