So, last night, I found the very interesting and informative hashtag, #vaccineswork, created by Hillary Clinton. Politics aside, bravo to her for creating a strong, fact based movement that will hopefully save lives. I read a few of the tweets throughout the feed and was thrilled to see someone credit Jenny McCarthy for her strong, damaging role in strengthening the anti-vaccination movement. Just stating FACTS here, no opinions. The article, from several years ago, clearly define Jenny McCarthy’s horrific role in fueling the movement.. She says in the article, and I quote, “Evan has been healed to a great extent by many breakthroughs that, while perhaps not scientifically proven, have definitely helped Evan and many other children who are recovering from autism.” She even ADMITS the *cough* “breakthroughs” WHILE PERHAPS NOT SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN, helped her son and MANY other children recovering from Autism. Ok, first off, Autism isn’t curable. People with degrees, not PORN careers, have put out many fact based studies based on genome mapping and other credible sources of proven science regarding Autism.
The best and most recent article came this morning from CNN.com, which once again mentions Jenny McCarthy’s role in the fake, made up science that has caused the DEATH of children from diseases once almost eradicated. That article can be found here. Naturally, after I brought up Jenny McCarthy’s article in which all this was stated, she promptly blocked my twitter. She’s much more interested in getting money (since she can’t hawk her book about her “recovered son” anymore I HOPE) from a TV show and doing all she can to stay afloat without once acknowledging she was WRONG. She even went on and on in that CNN interview, adding, “Most of the parents we’ve met who have recovered their child from autism as we did (and we have met many) blame vaccines for their child’s autism.” The damage has been done, yet she ignores it, as shown by her actions in blocking me on Twitter. Frankly, I wasn’t surprised. People who know they are wrong often avoid facing fact based arguments. Why bring up something that made her a ton of money that she’s obviously moved on from? Tell that to the parents, like myself who encountered REAL VACCINE DAMAGE. I almost lost my daughter to Pertussis when she was six weeks old because of an under-educated parent who refused to vaccinate their child and sent him to my son’s school. She spent over two weeks hooked up to machines and feeding tubes as I stood there, helpless, watching her turn blue and almost choking to death.
The article from this morning at CNN shares strong, fact based information about vaccinations, something every parent should read. We need to water down the damaging, made up propaganda helped to be spread by Jenny McCarthy. She used her celebrity to harm and she should be held accountable. I guess she’s too busy with her TV show to care about children still suffering because of her. Don’t believe me? Read the articles. The facts are there for all to see.
