    There is a huge difference between "working" with the disabled and raising them. Your work day has an end.

    I spend almost 60 hours a week helping 25 people with everything from mild Aspergers to almost unable to communicate. I am thoroughly familiar with the experience of having to be a parental figure to someone with a severe neuro or physical developmental disorder. Dont play that card.

    Just keep thinking that if it helps you do a good job helping these people.

    Peer reviewed science corrected the fraud, and Wakefield is now disgraced.

    "Skipping vaccines = dumb" is very easy to say when you are not the one with a child/dependent with this condition. If you have not personally lived with this challenge you cannot know what it is like, nor how greatly you hold out for a cure/improvement, if even only deep within your heart.
    Where is the evidence that giving a child vaccines increase their risk of having autism.

    And in the water, in our food... mercury is a naturally occuring heavy metal. Yes there's a few parts per million in vaccines. The best way I've seen it described was from here:

    During the recent controversy over the safety of thimerosal in vaccines, toxicologists have assumed that the toxicity of ethylmercury is equivalent to the toxicity of methylmercury. The primary environmental exposure is through consumption of predator fish. A 6-ounce can of tuna fish contains an average of 17 micrograms of mercury. A pediatric dose of hepatitis B vaccine contains very little more mercury than that.3
    Vaccines: Vaccinations and Mercury in Vaccines


    I still use an old bottle of mercurochrome for cuts and bruises. The amount of mercury in mercurochrome? Dunno - but CFL bulbs have 4 milligrams suspended as a vapor. While those vaccines had 17 micrograms. 4 milligrams = 4000 micrograms. Autism junkies should stop eating fish, never buy old style thermometers and only use incandescent light bulbs if they're going to worry about micrograms of mercury in their children.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That was the original "finding" by the now discredited study. Personally my wife and I never bought the proposition. Unfortunately many people we know did, some either refused the MMR Vaccine (the usually cited suspect because it is a multiple vaccine and according to some its introduction corresponded with the recorded/reported rise in Autism), or requested vaccines be given individually)

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    You mean Dr. Jenny McCarthy was full of ****? No way.
