People Are Applauding This Nurse Who Shut Down Anti-Vaxxers Using Their Own Logic

The “vaccines and autism” argument – even though it has been thoroughly debunked – isn’t the only reason why some people choose to be a part of the anti-vaxxers movement and risk their own or their children’s lives preventing immunization to such diseases like polio or measles. Some choose to do so because they believe that vaccines are nothing more than an evil scheme used by “Big Pharma” to exploit the pro-vaccination public and its wallets.

Recently, mother and registered nurse Meggy Doodle shared a Facebook post, explaining why she thinks these anti-vaccination people have the right to think and do so. Only on one condition. Scroll down to check out her vaccination reasoning which has already earned over 34K likes and 31K shares.

Many people shared their own thoughts about the subject as well

Trying to convince fools with rational and scientifically proven arguments. That never worked. The only solution to this problem is legislation.

Completely agree, other countries such as France and Italy do already - non -vaccinated children cannot attend state schools. Driven by too many kids dying from diseases that they should be protected from by...shock...vaccination!

A rant to put things in perspective maybe. - Just Imagine. I just got a puppy - a beautiful purebred predigree puppy that has taken me a couple of years to get. It is so beautiful and perfect that I am not going to give it the reccomended vaccines to keep it safe and healthy. I am going to leave it open to Distemper and Kennel Cough. ParvoVirus and every other thing that could make it very ill or kill it or infect other animals. I should be told by every responsible dog owner "keep your puppy the hell away from my dog"

I just had this same discussion with my brother yesterday. I told him that the same people who don't vaccinate their kids probably vaccinate their pets.

This again... you cant knock reason into a selfish asshole. Sorry, but let's name things properly - people who purposedly do not vaccinate are selfish bastards to me.

This is just an argument that will go on and on forever - til the return of Bubonic Plague and Smallpox because idiots think they are too special to give their children the gifts of lifelong immunity to the diseases that ravaged their ancestors lives.
