    Default WHOOPING cough is "just a breeze" for children and "a chance to be off school"

    This is probably one of the most awful things I have read from the anti-vax camp for some time.

    There are so many things wrong with that I don't know where to start.

    Wow, Is about all I'm game to say.

    I'd love to know how they think that these companies get foetal cells from abortions. Having worked on the operating theatre for many years and sadly had to assist in performing terminations, there are such strict guidelines about anything leaving the op suite. Little alone shipping human tissue to a drug company.

    People like her have a lot to answer for.

    Why why why??! I knew I should not have read that article. She sounds like an extremely misinformed woman who unfortunately has the potential to influence others

    I don't understand how she could willingly allow her children to catch such dangerous vpds. I would be devastated.

    This link explains the initial use of foetal cell lines http://www.historyofvaccines.org/con...ne-development

    You're right though, certainly not something that would be allowed today!

    "I don’t know whether it (the rotavirus vaccine) works or not. I think it’s unnecessary because that condition can be cured by homoeopathy in a matter of minutes," Ms Lydall said

    Right. So all of modern medicine has it wrong. Gee ... why didn't they think of just a few drops of homoepathy and voila! Gone!

    What an idiot.

    I don't even like having a normal cough... but whooping cough is so much worse and can result in death.

    Honestly... some people are just idiots and really should never open their mouths.

    I find it horrifying that the more 'out there' anti vaccine proponents put so much faith in people that are not trained to comment on vaccine safety or efficacy, like this woman, or Meryl Dorey or Vera Schreibner.
