    Nothing else to add except a resounding “THIS.”

    This is a wonderful article. People need to get it through their heads that even if they mean well, not vaccinating is dangerous to EVERYONE.

    Additionally, I am on the autism spectrum. I’ve said it many times before in debates with anti-vax folks, even if there was the slightest bit of scientific evidence that vaccines caused autism, I would still be happy that my parents vaccinated me. I would much rather have my life with autism than say, polio.

    As a member of the autistic community, I find the anti-vacciners even more annoying than the curebies, because they have no comprehension of disease history. Most of them were born after the advent of vaccines, so they don’t remember a sibling or a friend dying of something commonplace. And if they aren’t the reading type, they’ll never get that sense from reading historical fiction, which is a much better way of learning history than anything I’ve come across in schools. Ignorance is not a crime, but it should not be tolerated when it affects other people’s lives.
