the thing that astounds me the most about people who won’t vaccinate their children against measles in case it gives them autism is how many parents would rather have a dead child than a potentially autistic one: That’s a poor argument. The correct argument…
^yes that thank you.
Parents were not choosing to have a dead child by not getting their children vaccinated.
There’s also the fact that parents are going to feel a lot more guilty about doing something that they thought would actively harm their child (ie vaccinating) than opting OUT (ie not vaccinating) and ‘letting nature take it’s course’. People are distrustful of things they don’t understand and that’s only to be expected.
Assuming this is about the MMR, many of the parents would also have had measles themselves, and clearly survived it. Either that or they didn’t have it at all. So without having access to the stats, they would have known that opting out of the vaccine would not cause their child to drop dead; they managed okay. Because people base their opinions on their experiences and that’s also to be expected.
Autism was also relatively new at the time (in that it was being redefined, so children were being diagnosed with autism who would otherwise have just been ‘antisocial’ or ‘badly behaved’. So it looked like it was becoming more common), and people didn’t fully understand it. Maybe autism killed children too? They had no way of knowing.
And on the subject, it’s so easy in retrospect to criticise parents for not knowing that the MMR IS safe.
But ordinary parents don’t have the time, knowledge or money to conduct their own controlled double blind trials into the effect of the MMR. Even if they did, they couldn’t be too confident about the results because only tiny samples of children eligible to be tested were available.
Ordinary parents also don’t know how to go about finding, reading and understanding the terminology of research papers. Even if they did, they would have come across all the work by Andrew Wakefield and thought wow yeah never vaccinating my child ever. The problems with his research were identified by people who had spent a lot of time learning a lot about the vaccine and then GOING to the lab and checking his results. Scientific fraud is really hard to identify. These are not the sorts of things ordinary people are in any position to check. They are not being ignorant or stupid.
Aside from the fact that parents really should be able to trust the things the media is telling them and THIS is what should be taken from health scares. They are the fault of the media and the way that scientific research is filtered through journalists who don’t understand it. Blaming the parents isn’t useful or at all fair. It just shames people into blindly trusting the ‘authority figures’. Like when smoking was ‘good for you’.
I know the MMR IS safe, but that wasn’t known at the time.

It takes a real human being to be able to do something like this.
humans are kinda cute we pass stories down generations to instill a sense of wonder in people we’ll never know and we have little bells on our houses to tell each other that we’ve arrived and we shiver when we get cold and we have an endless amount of curiosity and if the night sky is clear our first instinct is to look up at the stars and think about going on big adventures

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
