Stop Using my Children to Scare Parents out of Vaccinating

This article sums up why I left my local crunchy parenting group. I was sick of seeing my son treated as broken.

As an autism parent, it offends me my children’s condition is being used to scare people away from life-saving medicine. I don’t want that to happen. It angers me that there are people out there who truly think my children and others like them would be better off dead than just a little different. It’s what the anti-vaccine community has come to in many cases— a hatred of all things autism.
