Same here. I know people who have children injured by vaccines, but they are still vaccinating their kids. Their answer is that it's better to be protected by vaccine from some deadly disease than to live them without any protection. And yes they know the risks of vaccines and they know how their kid was harmed by them but they are afraid to not vaccinate the kid because every single media and health workers here is talking how vaccines are protecting, and who are we to argue with the doctors who have studied that matter .manitoban said:I agree. I've found the bottom line is that they simply do not want to know, and no evidence you could provide would change their views. I tend to keep a low profile regarding my son's vaccination status, as there is no need to provoke attack from the pro vaxxers, who absolutely won't listen to reason anyway.Odyssey said:Yes. Arguing with someone and trying to get them to see the light only leads to people clinging even more strongly to their beliefs. Needing to shout your beliefs in peoples' faces only reveals the shakiness of your beliefs and your own insecurity. So not getting drawn into a public debate can be a wise move. What you share with close, personal friends and family who know what you know is another story.Aragorn said:On the other hand, the most loud bullies are more or less pathological, so debating with them, and showing your true colors would not be wise, I guess.
I too, have been disappointed in friends who I had thought would know better, but it really is a good litmus test! On the other hand a few people I would never have expected to have actually surprised me by seeing the light. It seems to me that at the moment there is obviously a big push going on for mandatory vaccinations, YET at the same time, the info of the dangers of vaccines is also slowly but steadily coming out, hence the desperate push to enforce them legally.
They don't believe their own mind, their own reasoning. Since doctor said its ok then it must be ok, no matter that all the pieces of evidence in front their eyes say it's the opposite.
Also, the most shocking is that I have a friend who is a doctor and have suffered a vaccine injury by himself , and he is working with a vaccine, he is vaccinating children.
There are a lot of verbal fights between pro and anti vaccers here in Macedonia and its just a pointless arguing. Yes, the awareness about the danger from vaccines is raising , but its very slow and on the other side the authorities are introducing so-called new and purified vaccines ( polyvalent ) , so the parents can finally relax and vaccinate their kids with the " good" vaccine. And it is working for them.
So, its best to not trying to expose your information loud in public. Many people are not prepared for the truth. I have felt that on my own skin. They will attack you without any real argument, so its pointless to argue with some provaccers about that subject.
