the AVN are to vaxing as the Westboro Church are to religion. Idiot zealots. I am happy for people to be anti vax if they are educated and respectful in their opinion and understand other people may disagree.
The McCaffery family contributed to the doco Jabbed .. They are the first people Writer/director /producer spoke with ...
Dana McCaffery passed away 6 days after my DD was born. I followed the story while holding my own newborn. I could only imagine how I would have felt if it was my daughter.
Their story is a big reason for my own pro-vax stance. I never even thought about not vaxxing my kids, but I didn't realise how important it really was to me. After the death of their daughter, the McCaffery family and their vocal pro-vax stance was inspirational.
I have heard of the AVN bullying both the McCaffery family and other families in the past. Their behaviour is despicable. It is not enough that they perpetuate harmful mistruths and pseudoscience, they engage in bullying standover tactics with grieving families and pro-vax individuals too.
I don't think that every person who does not vax is like the AVN. I do think that anyone who is part of their group is disgusting by association. They are proven liars, proven bullies. They are the opposite of awesome.

Warning there's some not nice pictures on there.

That poor family. How can anyone harass a family who is suffering so much. Its absolutely disgusting.
how awful!!! What the hell is wrong with anti vaxxers!!??
I dont understand their logic for not vaccinating (im pro vax)....but to subject a grieving family like this is appaulling >
They're sick. Pure and simple. And I don't mean the flu...I mean mentally deranged in some way.
Often you will find that people who do that sort of thing are bored/fed up/angry with their own lives and want to take it out on people whom they perceive are weak targets...such as a grieving family. So they lash out from the safety of anonymity and from behind a screen. In real life you will find that these people are timid, frightened little souls with a lot of bitterness in them and a lack of maturity to deal with that.
This is when you just have to switch off the haters, take their IP addresses and calmly report them. Maybe pray for them too if you're that way inclined.
There is another thread regarding this article ... so I'll merge them both.
