Anti-vaccine activists continue to use unique methods to spread misinformation

Taking from what anti-vaccine activists have done in Australia, other anti-vaccine campaign cells are also spreading misinformation mainly by circulating literature.

Shoppers at a Babies R Us in Lynnwood, Washington (a suburb of Seattle) discovered anti-vaccination information hidden in items they purchased recently. Last week, anti-vaccine activists in Australia have circulated pamphlets attempting to raise doubts about the HPV vaccine in residential mailboxes in Sydney’s northern suburbs.

While the anti-vaccine movement in the US and Australia has been very effective in raising doubts about vaccines, like has been pointed out before, these latest efforts may be acts of desperation. The internet and other electronic means of communication is far more effective in communicating ideas than physical information.

Not only is the medical community and media mostly against them, anti-vaccine groups’ overall credibility is shattered each time someone’s baby or child contracts a preventable disease resulting from parents embracing anti-vaccination views. Some even go so far as to berate or even harass parents who speak out against anti-vaccination groups and their advice.

Like has been stated out before, the anti-vaccine movement is an extension of the environmentalist movement. Their intent isn’t to prevent people from contracting autism or being poisoned by harmful chemicals. Rather they are one more green operation that exists to ensure that humanity suffers an existence of torment and, eventually, painful deaths resulting from people contracting preventable diseases which is grounded in environmentalist’s hatred of human life.
