Vaccination is the equivalent of child rape. At least according to Meryl Dorey of the Australian Vaccination Network. Just when it seems that the Anti-vaccination crowd couldn’t get more absurd. The AVN and it’s supporters appear to excel in all area’s of stupidity.
A MOTHER has been ordered by the Family Court to have her five-year-old daughter immunised.
The girl’s father, who has remarried and has another child, wanted the girl vaccinated against preventable diseases for her own wellbeing, and for the health of his other children.
But the girl’s mother said her daughter was healthy and the risk of vaccine-preventable diseases was very small.
The couple separated before their daughter was born, and the father initially consented to her not being immunised because, he claims, he was desperate to establish a relationship with his daughter. But the father now wants her vaccinated and produced medical evidence that immunisation provided no unacceptable risks for his daughter. –Herald Sun
It’s a good thing the father of this child took the mother to court to get this resolved. It can’t have been easy but at least it is one more life that may now be protected from preventable disease. Parents who refuse to protect their children from disease are unfit to raise kids. It’s ashame the father wasn’t awarded full custody, one step at a time I guess.
The disgusting woman has replied a few times to the Facebook page:
If you were the doctor ordered to administer this vaccine and the mother was standing there, holding her child under a court order while you prepared the shot and she was begging you to stop and crying that it would hurt and you continued to do it anyway – how different is that from rape?
I looked up the definition of rape prior to posting …that comparison and in the dictionary sense of the word, it is accurate. But I do understand that this is a vexed issue and for those like the two who are close to me and who have been victims of rape, the last thing I would want to do is cause them more pain.
Perhaps the term violation would have been better and in future, I will use that word. Because this mother and her child are being violated in so many ways it's hard to know where to start.
Apparently Meryl knows nothing about genetics either. The news article quite clearly states that it was one of the parents wishes that the child be vaccinated. The Fathers consent was strong enough for him to have the matter taken to the courts. Of course Meryl leaves out the fact that the Child has two parent's.
