More Ohio Parents Refusing Vaccines For Their Kids

“CINCINNATI—An increasing number of Ohio parents are using religious exemptions to delay or refuse for immunizations for children amid fears that vaccines contribute to autism.
“Ohio Department of Health data shows the number of religious or philosophical exemptions nearly quadrupled in Ohio between 1998 and 2008, though that figure still represents fewer than 1 in 100 children.
“All states require children to be immunized for school. Most allow religious exemptions, and Ohio and 19 others also permit exemptions for personal reasons.
“Doctors say they’re concerned that more exemptions could lead to outbreaks of preventable illnesses among children who haven’t had the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine.
For years, scientists have debunked earlier reports of a link between children’s vaccines and autism.”
My Kids, My Choice along with many of the mainstream media reports they list, disagree that this link has been debunked.
For perspective on just how much we can depend on NBC 4 and the AP, let’s just not forget cigarette smoking ads and the popular sentiment of not too long ago…
Of course, the mainstream media also report on the War on Terror as if it was legitimate and progress of capturing Osama bin Laden, so go ahead and trust them with the lives of your children.
