No, not at all name calling...

I'm speechless at the people who think other people are ignorant. I agree with the Facebook post 100%.
No, it was when the words, selfish, irresponsible non community minded came into play.
I stand by my assertion that most parents vaccinate their children to protect THEIR CHILDREN from VPDs. There are some who do it in part out of a feeling of social obligation (me being one of them, as well as a few people who have said so in this thread) but that is not the norm. MOST parents are told by HCPs to vaccinate their baby at this, this and this age, they read stories in the paper about WC outbreaks, and they go along with the schedule as recommended to protect their child. Very few vax their kids because, after doing extensive research about the risks and benefits, feel they should do it to protect other peoples kids. That's reality. I'm not sure how me pointing that out can be the reason this thread 'went sour', after another poster blatantly called all unvaccinating parents selfish!
