Someone Said That Vaccinating Kids Was ‘Child Abuse’ And Got Dragged To Hell By Science

Oh hey, another idiotic anti-vaxxer spewing nonsense on social media! It’s not bad enough that anti-vaxxers don’t vaccinate their children, putting those kids and anyone around them who can’t be vaccinated due to their immune systems at risk. No, they have to also try to spread misinformation and blatant mistruths all over the internet.

In a screenshot that was posted on the subreddit “Murdered By Words,” an anonymous person writes,

Parents who don’t vaccinate have done the research. In reality, injecting children with toxic chemicals and heavy metals should be considered child abuse.

Yes, it really says that. “Child abuse.”


The anonymous person was absolutely destroyed by a lengthy response to their post.

The person’s response breaks down some of the ingredients of vaccines and explains how the small quantity of each is not actually really harmful.

By toxic chemicals and heavy metals do you mean things like Ethylmercury, which is broken down and excreted from the body fairly quickly and which no scientific research has found links to harmful effects, including autism. Which by the way, is not used in vaccines since 1999 with the exception of influenza. Or MSG, also found only in the adenovirus and influenza vaccines, but that is also used heavily in the food industry and decades of research have shown that it is not harmful, with the exception of a minority of people that might suffer from minimal short-term reactions.

For example, infants who are breast-fed ingest aluminum just from drinking their mothers’ milk.

Aluminum? Which is only harmful in extremely high amounts and with dysfunctional kidneys. Which by the way, any breast-fed infant will consume about 7 mil. of aluminum in their diet during the first 6 months of their lives – and it’s also found in food, water, and tons of other medicines as well. When it comes to vaccines, the amount is so small it’s not even noticeable on your bloodstream.

And there is way more formaldehyde in a newborn than there is in a vaccine.

Formaldehyde? Which is the way we make sure the viruses are actually inactive and the vaccine is clean of bacterial toxins so that people don’t get sick from them. “there is 50 to 70 times more formaldehyde present in an average newborn’s body than in a single dose of vaccine.” (FDA)

The person’s final point is that the benefits of vaccines far exceed the possible negative effects.

And the list goes on and on. Point is, there is no scientific evidence showing vaccines to be harmful to the vast majority of people. And yes, some people might have different allergies or side affects [sic], but no medication is 100% safe and accurate – nonetheless, the positive outweigh the negative by very far. It is sad that we are exposing children who are not or cannot be protected against such diseases like measles. But I get it, you do your research and have your point of view. I’m not going to change them and you are not going to change mine. So you can ignore my posts and I will ignore yours.

The OP also mentioned that although it’s not in the screenshot, theperson who wrote the response also cited the relevant sources in the actual post.

People commented on the post about how in-depth and satisfying the person’s rejoinder was.

Now that is some passion for science, I wouldn’t be able to type anywhere near as much as that fellow in response to such ignorance. Well done!


Finally a worthy post, thank you


And others noted how intense the burn was.

Christ, this isn’t a murder.

This is a fucking war crime


She’s going to need a lot of essential oils and healing crystals for that one.


According to the OP, the person never replied. They were probably lying on the floor somewhere, stunned and dazed from the severity of the blow to their ego.
