    Pretty strong stuff Mark, perhaps you could let us know why you’re qualified to say those people anti vaccines are all dick heads who ALL claim it causes autism.

    Personally, you come across as someone who’s very angry that some people don’t support your opinion, rather than someone who’s educated and thoroughly researched your topic, but that may just be the way you’ve written your article.

      This is opinion, it’s all opinion (apart from the obvious). They don’t all claim it causes autism, another common argument is to list the ingredients of a vaccine and the side effects of every chemical in them.

      “Very angry” is an overshot I feel, but I do resent the anti-vax movement. I see them in the same way I see people who would refuse a child a blood transfusion on religious grounds.

      Let’s for a second assume everyone who was ever vaccinated ‘caught’ autism…

      Are you really saying autism is better than death by polio, or measles? Perhaps one would prefer one’s child’s to spend a lifetime in iron lungs?

      Don’t be ridiculous; vaccinate your kids.

    Dominic, his voice echoes mine, the father of a cancer child who needs that herd immunity to increase his already reduced chance to stay alive and for every anti-vax person there’s an average of 2 children putting our son at risk.

    You rewrote your post after my comments.

    I just didn’t think claiming ALL anti-vaxxers were dickheads who ALL claimed it causes autism was helping your campaign nee article.

    I think it reads much better now.
