WE mothers are not the crème de la crème of society. WE did not go to medical school. WE are mere mothers, who can’t possibly understand all medical science. And WE know this, because they infer so, in their medical articles about us. And in lay-press articles, we hear patronising messages such as vaccines being just like “hard hats”, “seat belts” and “steel-capped boots”. Strange. NONE of those things go ‘into’ a body. Neither do they have potential to train-wreck the immune system in a finely tuned biological-wonder.
Failing that “illogical argument” working on mere parents, doctors pull rank and tell us, “You take your car to a mechanic, and don’t presume to tell him how to do the job, do you?”
With a son who is a mechanic, I know from the stories he tells, that a lot of mechanics are a lot like some doctors I know. Some mechanics use second hand dubious parts, and quite a few fix cars using a method called “guess and error”.
And that’s fine, because at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter with a car. The mechanics can re-do the job, any number of times, so long as his mistakes aren't charged to your account, and eventually you have a car which works properly.
The problem with the mechanic analogy is that when it comes to a baby, whose immune system is developing according to a gene expressed blueprint, if some experts stuffs that up, you can’t go back to them and say, “Oi you, reset the clock back to before you did that please!” The human immune system doesn’t work like that. Once you mess it up, it’s very hard to get it back on track.
Naturally, these passionate people believe with all their heart, that vaccines can only IMPROVE the immune system. They believe with all their heart, with intense passion, that vaccines can't damage the immune system and side effects are ALWAYS a tragic, unfortunate, ..... coincidence.
So what did these provaccine people show "remorse" about at their annual conference?
"Remorse" is meaningless. It doesn’t change their goals, their dogma, or their blindness.
"Remorse" just means they will change their messages to overcome the views of people like me, in order to fulfill their passion to jab every baby that moves, anywhere near their orbit, regardless of a parent's right to say no.
The word “remorse” is an emotional decoy. After all, they were equally "passionate" in the heartlessness of their past tactics.
What they are hoping is that parents will then trust them again, and think that any new, more “compassionate” messages from "remorseful" doctors, are actually trustworthy.
Can the leopard really change it’s spots?
Or are parents simply dealing with a new creature called a chameleon?
