Andrew Wakefield Austism Sham Continues - Page 2
As Andrew Wakefield travels around the US hawking snake oil, the distressed parents of autistic children hang on his every word as he explains away losing his medical license and the fact the study was falsified. I feel for these parents and understand the need to find causality, but facts are facts. A 2003 paper in The Pediatric Archives which took multiple studies into account found no relation to the MMR vaccine and Autism.
Our societies need to blame someone when a child is born sick might make parents feel better but it certainly doesn’t help our children as a whole. Wouldn’t the time be better spent on real medicine that will improve the quality of life for everyone’s children without risking certain death from curable diseases?
The laws of the US define criminally negligent homicide as a statutory offense that arises primarily in situations involving the death of an innocent party. How many children have died from preventable disease because of Andrew Wakefield? Where are the cops while he’s preaching his misinformation that will certainly lead to more unnecessary deaths?
Exploiting society’s reverence of Doctors to further your economic objectives is reprehensible. Preying on parents that have been asking how their child became Autistic by faking a legit study is unforgivable. The death of otherwise healthy children from preventable disease is ignorance. How a child became Autistic is irrelevant, giving these children a quality of life is paramount to all of us.
