Oprah, Jenny McCarthy and Preventable Diseases

Shirley Wu has penned a beautiful open letter to Oprah Winfrey explaining why Oprah should not provide a soapbox to Jenny McCarthy. McCarthy is the unofficial spokesperson for the anti-vaccination movement, a dishonorable position at best.  Given yet another podium, more people will listen and take McCarthy’s bad advice, resulting in more deaths and preventable serious illnesses.

    Jenny is not antivaccine, is pro SAFE VACCINATION, because what they are doing now is going to kill us all

    There’s no evidence that vaccines cause Autism, though signs of Autism do often occur around that same age. Frightened, angry parents looking for someone to blame, looking to be somehow proactive on behalf of their children, have been duped into believing a conspiracy theory with no scientific basis. One of those parents happens to be a celebrity. As an Autistic person, I don’t believe that Autism is a kind of death, as McCarthy proclaims. Many unvaccinated children do die. Good for Shirley Wu.
