As you know I am not afraid of an intellectual battle, especially when it is over: Who Owns Your Body, and Who Owns Your Child's Body. To quickly answer both: I believe I own my body, I believe you own your body. I believe a child owns their own body, however, the child is in the care of the parent, thus the adult should and does have the natural right to make decisions about the child's body...As in...they don't have a right to give a child a tattoo without the child's consent. This of course is very easy to see....what isn't easy to see is Vaccination. (Don't roll your eyes...this is not a pro or anti vaccine post)
This post comes on the heels of a seemingly simple event. Facebook allows for you to rate pages you like. I rated NVIC with five stars. You would think I went to the Devil's own Website and gave him a five star rating...Seriously. I was attacked...but what can I expect? What should I expect. Apparently I am a person who believes in fairies and I enjoy killing kids...What? This isn't really that important...as I knew I would be attacked...But what caused me to post the HOLY SH*T phrase is the following:
I simply said that I get my information from: Vaccine manufactures Websites, Clinical Trials, Medical Journals, and Cross reference with Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary. For those who do not know Taber's is one of the most trusted Medical Dictionaries. Yet I was told...seriously...That My information from all of those I just mentioned, did not follow the Scientific method, and were not scientifically sound. WHAT? Okay...Seriously...For some reason this person didn't think that The Vaccine Manufactures (which I might agree with) are scientifically sound...yet they trust them? Huh? They don't think that Taber's Cyclopedic medical Dictionary is scientifically sound? Huh? ...... Then they followed it up with: Yes even the AMA agrees. (Nope...the AMA likes Taber's Medical Dictionary)
All Right then. I don't know how to argue this, nor should I. What I know is this: I don't take the word of any ONE person, or a group of Bureaucrats. Everything I give or do not give my child I research. Period. The universe saw fit to give me two beautiful little girls and I plan on doing the VERY best for them. I research the food they eat, the medicine they get, and the vaccines they get. I have never told anyone NOT to vaccinate. As a matter-of-fact, my children are FULLY vaccinated! It wasn't until an adverse event that I even thought about researching, thus the change in my attitude about simply doing what I am told. And I most certainly do not go around spreading Polio, Measles, Mumps, Chickenpox, Whooping Cough, Diphtheria, Rubella, or any of the other disease. I simply give and share information.
I don't know about you...But if you are going to TROLL someone about scientific things...maybe you should...I don't know...Read the Scientific Data? And an FYI to all the trolls... Why yes, I do believe in fairies, but that is because I am a fiction writer...and we tend to believe in the magical realms....and yet I do not rely on MAGIC when it comes to my children's health. If my children are seriously sick, I do take them to the doctors. If they need a medication, I way the pros and cons...and yes they have taken MEDICINE since I stopped vaccinating.
Thanks for listening....Have a great day People!! Remember...If you suddenly get trolled...You are not alone. There are Trolling Groups on Facebook that Teach people how to TROLL. This is just a way of diverting from the truth. (I edited who posted for their privacy) :)
