Do we want our children to get sick... some of the parents do!

Here is an interesting tidbit from our favorite "mom", Jenny McCarthy:


TIME: Your collaborator recommends that parents accept only the haemophilus
influenzae type B (HIB) and tetanus vaccine for newborns and then think about
the rest. Not polio? What about the polio clusters in unvaccinated communities
like the Amish in the U.S.? What about the 2004 outbreak that swept across
Africa and Southeast Asia after a single province in northern Nigeria banned
vaccines?
JM: I do believe sadly it's going to take some diseases coming
back to realize that we need to change and develop vaccines that are safe. If
the vaccine companies are not listening to us, it's their f___ing fault that the
diseases are coming back. They're making a product that's s___. If you give us a
safe vaccine, we'll use it. It shouldn't be polio versus autism.

Here is the entire interview:

Ok... can you be any dumber?
