Here I dive into the world of current events.
Take a deep breath.
I have so many thoughts on this story about Michelle Bauchman and HPV. Let me try and organize them.
1. First off. HPV. Li'l Miss P will be getting it, I guess there's even a chance my boys might get it, although that seems a bit overboard. You just never know, and if your daughter makes one mistake and then dies of cervical cancer... I mean, just get it. HPV's really real, there's lots of good Christian women out there wtih it. It's an STD and it can kill you, and at best it can make you get biopsies of your cervix which can cause a c-section.
2. WHAT THE HECK? She talked to ONE woman who said her daughter became retarded AFTER getting the vaccine. I mean, you don't get it til' you're like a tween.! The girl was perfectly normal and then whamo, she was retarded? Plus, it's one person, and then she decides to spew it in a debate? I'm just so tired of this. I can't tell you how many phone calls I got from worried moms thinking their kids were going to get Autism since they got the MMR. And now to find out it was all really poorly done and not true in the SLIGHTEST? Grrr.... and to think of the kids that have died because they didn't get it. Plus, that whole pertussis outbreak. I don't think people get the whole heard immunity thing. Anyway, I just get really bugged when people talk about vaccines with absolutely no knowledge. I'm interested in these doctors offices that say if your child isn't getting shots you'll need to find a new pediatrician. Hmm, I can't find a link to it. But some pediatric offices are saying that if your child isn't immunized, you'll need to find a new provider. It truly does put the rest of the population (especially newborns) at risk. Also, if you strongly believe your child shouldn't get shots, you probably do need to find a pediatrician that agrees with you. And those are getting more and more rare....
Soapbox done. :)
