Anti-vax doctor’s comments causing outrage

Reposted from 22 Words. Adam sums it up pretty well for us.

The Jacksons’ daughter has leukemia which has ruined her measles immunity, and their son is too young to be immunized. So they are, in a sense, at the mercy of their community when it comes to contracting or not contracting the infection.

Now, after a trip to Disneyland and having indirect contact with a family who doesn’t vaccinate, their son is showing signs of the disease. And there’s nothing they can do but wait and hope.

Their story is sad enough told just like that. But to add salt to the wound, let’s see what the anti-vax doctor interviewed for this segment has to say…

His remarks (which begin about 2 minutes in) are clearly edited, so it’s possible he’s not as terrible as he comes across. Let’s hope so anyway, because how could anyone — and a doctor, no less — show such blatant disregard for the lives of other people?
