Anti-Vax Mom’s Messages After Finding Out Her 19-Year-Old Daughter Got Vaccinated Will Leave You Baffled

We make a lot of silly decisions when we come of age, but this 19-year-old girl probably made the smartest one she could. She got vaccines. Six of them. For us, being pro-vaccination might not sound like a big deal, but her anti-vax mom completely lost it, and someone on the internet documented her entire Facebook rage rant.

People have been destroying anti-vaxxers for a long time, but when nobody shuts them down for a duration of a full conversation, we get a good glimpse of what goes on in their heads. Weirdly enough, nobody talked about vaccines and autism, as this is usually the most prominent theme for anti-vaxxers to discuss. Scroll down to check out why this anti-vaccination mom and her friends felt “heartbroken” after her daughter went to the doctor to get an immunization, and let us know your thoughts about it in the comments!

Wow. What a pip. Classic child abuser. She's actually hunting for sympathy because her daughter doesn't want to die from cervical cancer. She's a piece of work. ...One thing the daughter can do is tell her physician that her medical information shouldn't be sent to her mother any more. She is a legal adult and she has the right to keep her personal information private. ... I suspect that if she does that, Mommy Dearest will threaten to take her off insurance, but that will just prove that she needs to get away from her abuser.

I would like to take a moment, while we're talking about vaccines, to talk about autism. Autism is not caused by vaccinations. The cause of autism is unknown, and scientists are working really hard to find out what causes it, but we know for sure vaccines are not the answer. Now, I would like to talk about autism itself. Autism is a developmental disorder that is on a huge spectrum. I myself was born with very mild autism, meaning I can go about my normal life most of the time with some social difficulties. However, it can range to the point where some cannot speak, and still need help with basic tasks. Ok, now that I got that out of the way... Please do not talk to people with autism like babies! It drives me mad! Also, please, do not talk about a person with autism to another person when the person with autism is nearby! We can hear you just fine, we're not stupid! Thank you for reading my rant. If you have any questions, comment below

My nephew was born with severe autism and has a lot of difficulties, but I never speak to him like a baby. I can tell he understands everything that is said to him, but he has trouble communicating what he is thinking or feeling. Sometimes people talk to him like he's stupid and it makes me angry. The kid has a memory like a steel trap. I see him every weekend and as soon as i walk in the door he begins his routine of asking me a lot of questions (where's my house, where's my clothes, where's my car Sandy, etc.) He has a long list of questions and every so often he'll throw in a question about something he heard or saw months ago. His memory is amazing. He is truly special and gifted and i wouldn't change him for the world. But to make a long story short, thank you for bringing up the fact that is has nothing to do with vaccines and especially for asking people to not treat people with autism like they're babies.

I had Guillian Barre syndrome and am not allowed to take several different vaccines, so it is crucial that those around us are vaccinated!!!

That's another thing people don't consider, is that some people are more susceptible than others, so when you don't vaccinate your child you're not only putting them at risk, but someone else's kid too

I agree, but in this case, the anti-vaxers believe vaccines are actual poison, so they think they're saving their lives. It's a bit like when your parents teach you against drug abuse, for example. Sure, we know about the importance of vaccines, but these people believe in conspiracies.

I'm truly horrified. I have a rare primary immunodeficiency disorder and I cringe every time I go into the doctor's office and there's some person (most likely not vaccinated) coughing their germs all over. I get every vaccine that I can, but some don't "take". I have no immunity to measles, for example, and I get warned whenever there's a local case. Then, I have to stay inside to avoid those who haven't been vaccinated. I was hospitalized with flu complications before vaccines were readily available to me. Because of my immune disorder, every time I get something minor like a cold, it escalates and I get very sick. I cannot believe that there are still people out there who think that a vaccine is dangerous. Those are the folks that I'm afraid of ... their ignorance may kill me some day.

I can kind of understand from their perspective *if* they truly thought they were having to decide between autism or the chance of contracting an illness; that would be a tough call for any parent to make, but it’s cases like yours that truly devastate me. People like you are counting on the rest of us to not get them sick and it’s not fair that you have to be scared of the world. It wasn’t your choice to be immunized-compromised, and it shouldn’t be theirs to put you in danger by not vaccinating.

First of all, the anti-vaxxers show a clear prejudice against autism. o what, if your child is born autistic? How is that any different from having a child being born with one less/one plus chromosome (which has nothing to do with vaccines but with genetics, pure and simple?). Do these people support "eugenics" as well? Refusing to vaccinate your child can harm a community, a city, a whole country. Out of "beliefs". In this context, I would call the anti-vaxxers *fanatics* - people that believe in something with such determination that they simply shut their ears because their brains no longer function alone - they're on a heard level. I've never heard anything good coming from fanatics. By the way, autism is not at all bad as they try to picture it. Is it a little more difficult to raise andrelate to an autistic child? Indeed. But it's even harder to bear with the death of a child that could have been prevented. http://autismmythbusters.com/general-public/famous-autistic-people/

If I ever have a child (I hope so, I can't yet due to a disease) I will vaccinate! I'd rather want my kid vaccinated than the poor kid getting polio or another horrible disease. And if my child gets a reaction. Well, that's sad. But better a reaction which will go away. And to the people claiming vaccinations cause autism. Well, I'd rather want my kid to have autism than polio. My SO works with people who have different forms of autism. They live on a farm where they are taken care of. My SO is one of the caregivers. I'd rather have this happen than my child getting polio or another horrible disease. Though I do not even believe vaccines cause autism. It could have been there from birth and develop further. And then they can get symptoms after the vaccinations. It doesn't mean that the vaccines CAUSE autism!!!

And to the people wishing this girl harm because she got herself vaccinated.. Oh I can't describe it. This makes me so angry. Wishing harm to a very clever 19 year old, just to "prove" their ‘right’. They need to be shamed for the rest of their lives! What kind of person wishes harm to a healthy person? That is just sick. I have 2 diseases myself, and even though I have excruciating (indescribable) pain 24/7, going on 12 years now, I would not wish this to my worst enemy. (I don’t have enemies, but if I had them, I still would not wish this to them). This is my opinion. I am glad I see my opinion shared a LOT over here. There are still smart people in the world who listen to very well educated doctors who studied extremely hard to help people with medical problems of any kind.

I've met far right and far left people who are 'anti-vax', and one far left guy who is that way does feel strongly that the scientific consensus on global warming/climate change is true, and that evolution is biological reality. I agree w/ him on the latter two points and asked what is is epistemological basis (way of knowing) those latter points? His response: the scientific consensus. So then I said, so what about vaccines? Isn't the scientific consensus that they work well and don't cause autism? He got angry.

Dear God. "I hope she doesn't die!" In countries without easy access to vaccines, kids walk for DAYS to get the shots that they know can save their lives because they see what life is like both with and without vaccination, and they know life without vaccination is very dark indeed (particularly when you aren't fortunate enough to be benefitting from herd immunity).

This is absolutely insane. Her daughter is an adult, she can make her own decisions. What if any of these children of "anti-vaxers" want to be in the medical field or travel to underdeveloped countries? They have to have vaccines for that. If there only argument is the fear of getting Autism and/or being pumped full of chemicals, I have three points. 1. We eat chemicals, we bathe in chemicals, we breathe chemicals, we clean with chemicals- so unless you live like a bear in the woods, you are going to come into contact with chemicals. 2. Autism is typically diagnosed before the age of 2- there are no cases of "Adult-onset" Autism and 3. It has been researched and proven that there is no direct correlation between vaccines and an Autism diagnosis. And, lest we forget the rest out break of small pox and other nearly eradicated diseases because of anti-vaxer's.

We three sisters had polio in 1953, before Jonas Salk found his vaccine. My sister was in an iron lung at age 10. Every morning the kids on the ward said their names, so the kids could all know who had died in the night. At 73 she still has nightmares about it. My bones were malformed and I was crippled and in agony, walking on the insides of my ankles until age 62, when there was a surgery to rebuild my feet and ankles. If you decide not to immunize your children, be sure you are ready to face them being crippled for life, or dying a horrible death, possibly taking other people’s children with them. There are lots of worse things than autism.

It is also terrifying that if someone not vaccinated gets one of those terrible diseases we are trying to prevent, it can easily spread to people who CAN'T get vaccinated for legitimate medical reasons, AND even to the people who ARE vaccinated if their immune systems are compromised for whatever reason. Measles epidemics are happening again because of the anti-vaccination whackjobs letting their carrier children around people who could potentially get sick. It's gotten bad enough that I am considering home schooling my VACCINATED children just to try to avoid the chance that little Timmy in their class isn't vaccinated and has somehow started spreading whooping cough or some other DEADLY disease. Hell, I'm genuinely afraid to leave my home on many days because of this.

Some people are just dumb. Vaccines have saved hundreds of millions more that they have ever harmed (if any!). Just do the maths - the risk is infinitesimal compared to the certainty of the damage these diseases can cause if you are unfortunate enough to succumb. I'd normally say something like, "This woman shouldn't be allowed to breed and have kids", but then we wouldn't have her far smarter daughter around.

Probably an anti-vaccination group she belongs to. Honestly, social media sites should use their right as a privately owned company to remove any kind of groups that promote these ideas.

I understand the distrust of drug companies. And if I had a kid with severe allergies I might think twice about getting my child vaccinated. But ALL drugs can cause side effects in some people, but the danger of the disease usually outweighs the small risk of the vaccine.

Rafaella Bueno

Kids with severe allergies and other conditions that can't get vaccinated are the whole reason why it's so terribly important that children that are healthy need to get vaccinated. It's not only for their own sake, but also for the sake of others who can't get the shots themselves and rely on herd immunity. If you had a child with allergies, nobody would blame you for being afraid of drugs in general, I would be too.

"She just decided to listen to somebody who she deems more educated" you say it like she's wrong. What kind of person honestly thinks they know more than a doctor who went to school for many years? If anyone replied that this mother may be a doctor I'm just gonna ignore it because if she was I REAALLY doubt she'd be against vaccinations. Thank God the daughter is smarter than her incompetent mother

Anti-vaxxers are endangering children. Even if vaccinations DID cause autism, which it doesn't, what would you rather have: an autistic child or a dead child. The only thing even remotely wrong with vaccinations is that they hurt like hell, and even then a little distraction stops it all. Just vaccinate your kids already.

I'm more disappointed at how many people agreed with the mom? Like holy crap, I wanted to scream the entire time I read this. People are ridiculous, but I'm glad she was smart enough to believe her doctor, a LICENSED PROFESSIONAL

So, I'm a firm believer that people can believe what they want and live they want. AS LONG AS they are not harming anyone else, putting anyone else at risk... Not vaccinating your kids and sending them out into the world is so incredibly dangerous. And stupid. And ignorant. I'm so proud of this girl for going and getting vaccinated despite her mom's crazy ranting. Good for her!!

I'm embarrassed to be the same species as these people.

My favorite part partea mea favorita "8 years I've been teaching her and she just decided to listen to somebody she deems more educated". Truth is hard.

If immunizations are so bad, why aren't all the previous generations going down like flies? Makes me sad about the future risk. Anybody up for another polio epidemic? I know me and mine are safe!

Sadly, because these people can become spreaders of those diseases, if you and yours have a compromised immune system due to an illness, or even just having to take steroids for some kind of medical treatment (they can weaken the immune system), you can become vulnerable to these easily prevented diseases. These self-righteous, circle-jerking, idiotic, science denying cretins aren't just putting themselves and their kids at risk. They are putting us all at risk.

This is so deeply disturbing. I am committed to non-violence, and while I have always been an ardent feminist I am also a gentleman. But when confronted with this child abuse I want to slap this woman so hard she spins herself into the ground like a cheesy cartoon character.

Here's the difference...while you may have the URGE to, you DON'T. Although I could see sitting the dingus on a couch and slowly dumping all the evidence that PROVES that the lying liar that lied was wrong, and also his CONFESSION that the reason why he falsified the study was to sell his OWN formulation of vaccine.
