Dear present day Christians, This is what you sound like when you condemn marriage equality and clutch your “holy” book.
psychic Pam Ragland isn’t speaking to a dead child or embroiled in legal issues with banking institutions, she rallies the ignorant to her tiny banner of anti-vaccination beliefs. Since the recent Measles outbreak peaked in California, lawmakers have had enough and are pushing ahead with legislation (California SB-277) to remove personal and religious beliefs as exemptions from children being vaccinated.
Pam Ragland again seeks to gain some form of attention to her
store cause and has launched her own petition to “Stop Trying to Force Vaccines“!
Since Ragland insists on looking at the FACTS, let’s do a little fact-checking to see how accurate she is.
The US Federal Govt. is trying to FORCE VACCINES ON CHILDREN yet the cost to society will far outweigh the risks!!!
As Ragland does not provide any reference to the actual federal law being proposed to vaccinate children, I found H.R.2232 – Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015. The short version of the bill: “… the establishment of a State requirement for students in public elementary and secondary schools to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices …”
The numbers of people (200) impacted or potentially impacted by Measles (the MMR vaccine) just doesn’t make sense given the risks to millions of children.
It’s difficult to discern what Ragland is actually trying to say here. It seems as if she is saying Measles and the MMR vaccine are the same thing? It doesn’t make sense.
If Pam Ragland was really interested in the impact of Measles, she should take a long look at the cases of Measles and other preventable diseases had on people before vaccinations were introduced.
1) There have been roughly 200 cases of Measles in the US – yet Autism is now 1 in every 48 boys, and ADD is now 1 in every 5 boys. While the girl rates are slightly lower, much of this is attributed to missing the more subtle symptoms in girls. (Many girls suffer in silence.)
WRONG! In 2014 there were 644 cases and 23 outbreaks of Measles in the United States.
In January 2015 alone, there were over 119 documented cases of Measles.
The second part of Ragland’s claim is where she really demonstrates the depths of her scientific ignorance. Measles is a treatable and preventable DISEASE, while Autism and ADD are NOT DISEASES! Linking them all together is absolutely absurd, irrelevant, and intentionally misleading.
There are many variations of those popular “COEXIST” bumper stickers out there. There is even one critical of Islam.
I could not find one critical of Christianity though… so I made a few examples for “honest” Christians to be proud of their religion and beliefs.</s>
