I think you'll find that there are very few actual non-medical non-vaxxers on BH. Most seem to be delaying, so I think we can stop with all the hand wringing now.
Has it ever been polled?

I think everyone needs to get over themselves.
People vaccinate or they don't. Stop stressing about it. Even a vaccinated child can contract something they're not supposed to... so even if all children are vaccinated, you're still potentially at risk. And how many adults are vaccinated? I got hte MMR when DD was a baby, but nothing since. I wouldn't even know what I am supposed to be vaccinated against tbh.
There's also plenty a little baby can get which there are no vaccinations to prevent. So honestly, if you're that worried about catching something, it's probably better you and your entire family become hermits anyway.

I'm (obviously) interested in the discussion and passionate about it, but I would never name-call someone who had good or even somewhat good reasons not to vaccinate! And no-one here has.
Im sorry, but if people have valid arguments and good points then they should bring them into the discussion rather than finally bring it up after 15 thousand pages of people throwing personal attacks at other peoples valid reasons!

Eta this whole 'tell me why you don't vaccinate' vibe reaks of entitlement. Maybe if people were polite (see deliriums posts as an example) more people would be willing to speak up.

Firstly, I wasn't name calling anyone
Secondly, I have only responded to posts I've read on this thread, not on stuff I haven't read! I'm not a mind-reader!
This is silly, I'm allowed and have a right to respond to the personal attacks others (and not me!) brought into the discussion.

Personal attacks suck, and often cause people to stop being open about their reasons. I realise it goes both ways and it sucks both ways.
