Child abuse advocacy book pulled from shelves.

A “children’s book” intended to teach children to embrace deadly disease is being removed from sale.

AUSTRALIA’S largest online bookstore will no longer sell a book that promotes the “marvellous” benefits of measles. Measles is one of the top killers of children, but is easily preventable through vaccination, so deaths in Australia are rare.
News.com.au revealed this week that Bookworld was distributing Melanie’s Marvellous Measles, which falsely describes the deadly disease as something that will make children stronger. AUSTRALIA’S largest online bookstore will no longer sell a book that promotes the “marvellous” benefits of measles.Measles is one of the top killers of children, but is easily preventable through vaccination, so deaths in Australia are rare.News.com.au revealed this week that Bookworld was distributing Melanie’s Marvellous Measles, which falsely describes the deadly disease as something that will make children stronger.

The book is written by Stephanie Messenger a disease advocate who want children to be exposed to diseases that will kill them. I first mentioned her book briefly about a year ago, but now it looks like she is finally getting dragged into the public spotlight. I expect many members of the public will be shocked to learn that child abuse advocates like Messenger exist.
The anti-vaccination book, ‘Melanie’s Marvellous Measles,’ penned by Queensland health activist Stephanie Messenger, tells how the young girl catches measles. Melanie expresses concern to her mum that her friend Tina might also contract the potentially-fatal disease.
But her mother replies by saying ‘wise people think measles help strengthen the body, and makes it more mature’. Tina’s mum recommends melon and carrot juice will help make Melanie feel better. She also tells Tina it would be a ‘great idea’ if she caught measles from her friend. The Australian Medical Association warns that measles can still kill, and carrot juice won’t save you. “About one in 10,000 children will die because of encephalitis,” AMA President Steve Hambleton toldNews Limited.

Deliberately exposing children to measles is an especially cruel form of child abuse. Anyone caught following Stephanie Messenger’s advice should be reported to Child Protection.
