Oh, ok. I see what you're saying.

Well, it all depends on who you're talking to. When discussing with a medical professional who legitimately needs to know than I just go on, and on. I want them to know that I've done my research.

However, if it's just a friend/aquaintance I usually try not to get into the "why" because people tend to get defensive about it real fast.

Re: quick answer

Depends on who you are talking to. Like the PP's have mentioned. IF it is someone who honestly is interested in why you don't and wants so facts you could just run through the basics. What ever the reasons are for you. Wether it be the link with autism and autoimmune issues, the toxic mixture they are made of, heavy metals, believing that it is in your child's best interest to get childhood diseases in childhood to develop a strong lifetime immunity, lack of long term safety studies, a feeling that the risks outweigh the benefits, a belief that vaccines didn't cause a drop in the rates of illnesses or any mixture of those reasons. If they are just trying to start a fight a short and sweet answer is best. When some one asks I usually say because Kearnan is autistic because of vaccines. I dont' feel I need a better reason. But when my SIL asked because she was really interested and considering stopping vaxing my nieces you bet I went into all of the reasons and the ease of getting exemptions. It just really depends on the person asking.
