Maybe just maybe the anti vaxers have come from parents of children whose kids have been severley affected. Well I suppose if you are happy to mutilate the unborn babies whats it matter if a few thousand kids end up disabled or vegetables.

AJP, you chastise someone about how you only use peer reviewed articles
and then send links to a stack of facebook links and Business Insider.
Hmmm

runner,

No, there are far too many anti-vaxxers for them to be witnesses to the excruciatingly rare cases of actual vaccine injury. I know a few anti-vaxxers myself, and none of them have seen, first-hand, a vaccination gone wrong. Youíll find that virtually every alleged case of vaccine injury is nothing more than a fallacious Post Hoc assumption.

Bazz,

I didn't say "only", and the Facebook links weren't meant for evidence of anything other than the political persuasion of the most vocal pro-vaccination groups. I'm sorry I couldn't find a peer-reviewed article on that.

<<you chastise someone about how you only use peer reviewed articles and then send links to a stack of facebook links and Business Insider.>>

If it makes you feel any better, I checked Google Scholar for more scholarly writings on the growing anti-vaccination sentiment among the Right. Granted, though, I didn't look very hard. So, here's a what I had a quick look through:

http://scholar.google.com.au/scholar?q=conservative+anti-vaccination

Perhaps you can find something?

//As for the anti-vaxxer movement becoming a policy of the right, I think that that is complete bollocks. While one or two might take it up as an issue of free speech, the vast majority of anti-vaxxers still sit firmly on the left.//

I find that quite heartening. Nobody wants to claim responsibility for these mongrels - the left blame the right and right blame the left, and in the process a bipartisan position in favour of vaccination appears, almost as if by magic.

But I worry for the future: I fear many of the Tories in favour of vaccination are in favour because they have direct, first-hand experience of the alternative. As the older generations die off, and we lose that wisdom.... what awaits to fill the gap?

Jesus, I should be more careful about what I say in future. I didn't think praising Cthulhu would actually summon up dark forces...

AJ,

When you say the anti-vax movement is becoming a domain of the, then you are saying that that the right is beginning to dominate that movement. If as you say this movement is "still predominantly a domain of the Left" this is a logical impossibility.

I have no doubt that there are some conspiracy nuts amongst the right, but the movement is dominated by left whinge fruitcakes that believe in natural remedies, organic food and world peace through group hugs.
