Anti-Vaxxers Think One Baby Having A Seizure Means No Baby Should Be Safe From Measles
Oh, California. You’re so beautiful and fun and also trying to kill us all with your concentration of crazy anti-vaxxers.
According to ABC News 10, California legislators are debating a bill this week that would eliminate personal belief exemptions and prevent unvaccinated children from attending public schools. The bill was authored by a pediatrician and seems to align with a pro-vaccine agenda, but as expected, it’s been hotly contested in the golden state.
The most controversial of the opposition came from a Minnesota-based ‘health’ group called Health Choice, who began running a shocking ad featuring a crying six-week-old having a seizure, which they claim was the result of receiving vaccines.
The 30-second spot is basically just a disturbing close-up of the baby seizing with a narrator spitting fear at the masses, persuading them that this one child’s seizures are definitely caused by vaccines and that means vaccines are bad for all people.
The narrator said, “Lorrin Kain’s seizures began two hours after her shot.”
The ad went on to say that the damage was so severe, that it claimed Kain’s life. Kain actually died at the age of 15.
The ad aired the day before the California Senate began discussing the vaccination bill, stirring up added trouble around an already controversial piece of legislation. Anti-vaxxers have never shied away from fear-mongering, but the ad is a gross reminder of just how out of control this vaccine situation has gotten.
