As if appearing on Fox News wasn't bad enough, former reality star and current Mrs. Interception, Kristin Cavallari was a guest on The Independent yesterday to publicly state she won't vaccinate her children because vaccines are harmful despite documented research to the contrary. Good luck with your measles epidemic, Chicago.
You know what, I’ve ready too many books about autism. There is a pediatric group called Homestead—Homestead or Homefront, now I have pregnancy brain I got them confused—they’ve never vaccinated any of their children, and they haven’t had one case of autism. And now one in 88 boys is autistic. That’s a really scary statistic. The vaccinations have changed over the years, there’s more mercury and other…
There really is nothing worse than a helicopter mom who thinks "hey, it's my child! I know more about what's better for them than a doctor". Umm, no. No you don't. Sorry for you to hear it like this. You pushed another living human out of your vagina. That doesn't make you a doctor or a vaccine scientist. You know what that makes you? A mammal. That's it. That's the extent of your scientific classification. Just because you saw a quote on Pintrest about mercury while pinning a shadowbox, that doesn't mean that quote was even remotely accurate. If you're afraid your child will get autism from a vaccine, then why are you not afraid of your child contracting measles? Because, not sure if that quote covered it or not, but your child can die from that. Then you'll wish you had a kid who couldn't make eye contact but could play Rachmoninoff by ear. If you want to ignore scientific evidence and choose to believe an organization who doesn't have your child's best interest at heart, that's your right as a parent. But keep your infected measles kid out of the park and off the playground where the rest of us vaccinated people who trust people with degrees in this kinda thing are enjoying our Sunday. Well, maybe not Sundays. Turns out there's no vaccination for hangovers. Why is that? We should have come up with that by now. I think it's because Obama is in the pocket of Big Advil.
