Pro-Vaccine Trolls: Use Emotional Warfare on Parents

The Value of Your Childís Life Ė According to Those Promoting Vaccines

Most mothers and fathers vividly remember the days they took their child for shots, filled with anxiety, knowing it would be painful for the child and not knowing how the child will react to the vaccine. As I spent some time researching how those people who tell parents vaccines are safe respond to questions and uncertainties from parents, I came across the following:

Use emotional warfare on those questioning vaccines. Tell emotional stories full of tears and sobbing and unbearable grief and terror, about people in your own family or people you read about, who were sick with or died of terrible diseases. Donít hold back details about bodily fluids and suchlike: the more gross the better. This stuff has a way of infiltrating the minds of parents, subtly influencing their decisions, in a manner similar to advertising. [1]

The Vaccine Controversy

Later we will revisit the last paragraph. For now, let us wonder why there is a controversy surrounding vaccines. To provide you with a bigger picture of what is causing a vaccine controversy, let me back up and provide you with one personal aspect. Stay with me as the reason for a vaccine controversy unfolds.


When our daughter was born I was overcome with emotions I had never experienced before, emerging feelings of immense joy holding a miracle in my arms, so innocent, vulnerable and sweet. I made a solemn promise to my daughter, right then, right there: that I would always be there for her, protect her, educate her and never walk the path of least resistance. After all, this child had been entrusted to me and I am responsible to provide her with the best life she can possibly live.

We are proactive parents. From the very beginning, I researched the safest car seat for my child, my wife did a good job breast feeding, and we have worked hard on stimulating our children intellectually. As a native of Germany, I clearly knew that I would give my children the gift of bilingualism. Prior to birth, I had already ordered an abundance of German books, picture cards, etc., to assist me in my endeavor of raising a German-speaking child in an English-speaking environment.

I vividly remember driving with our daughter to the hospital when she was 22 months old to see her newborn brother for the first time. We conversed in German the entire time and it struck me that my child spoke German much better than English despite the fact that she spent more time with English-speaking people (her nanny, mom, grandparents, etc.). I accomplished that incredible task by completely sacrificing myself and placing my daughter first.

When our son came along this task increased in difficulty. By the time our daughter was three she spoke German and English equally fluently. She is now five, still speaks both languages fluently, and she is beginning to read and write in both languages. We are going on long bike rides, she riding her own bike (she went on her first ten-mile bike ride without supporting wheels at the age of three), and my son is in a Ďbike seatí behind me as we sing German songs and tell stories.

One Shot Changing Four Lives Ė Forever

Unfortunately, this is only part of our story. In 2011, when my oldest child was three and a half years old, we followed our pediatricianís recommendation to catch up on some shots. That particular day, our daughter received one particular vaccine.
