I am very, very late to this game and several bloggers have discussed the topic extremely well, so I’ll just link to some excellent posts say this:
Oprah has signed some death warrants.
She is known for doing many great things for people, but the woo is getting thicker and she recently made a monumentally harmful mistake: she funded Jenny McCarthy in a multimedia venture. So now Jenny can promote disease and ensure the illness and death of even more kids.
Daniel O’Brien at Cracked.com wrote an extremely well-written, well-reasoned, and funny post which says it all. This is a must-read.
For a comprehensive rebuttal to anti-vaccination claims, I highly recommend the AntiAntiVax home page, where they are “Fighting the Stupid, Saving the World”.
For a history of the vaccine to autism claims, Chris Mooney (now on Discover) has written a great piece addressing the persistence of the controversy.
