STFU Parents: Rules For Visiting Your Friend’s New Baby, According To Facebook
2. No Shot = No Baby
I sympathize with Merritt and her premature twins, and I respect Betsy’s interests in keeping her baby away from disease, especially with whooping cough on the rise in certain places. BUT, there’s something slightly intrusive about making a medical request to dozens of friends and family via Facebook. If Betsy thinks she’s friends with someone who hasn’t been vaccinated against whooping cough, perhaps she should speak to that person directly, since most people *should* already be vaccinated. And if she won’t allow any vaccinated friends who haven’t had a recent flu shot hold her baby, I sincerely doubt that posting about it on Facebook is going to push them over the edge to get one.
