Re: quick answer

I just say "My husband and I have done an extensive amount of research on vaccines and have come to the decision that they are not right for our family at this time."

Re: quick answer

Just say, "Cause I/we don't think it's best for us right now" and Change The Subject, fast. If they press you say, "It's a really personal decision and I don't want to go into it."

I'm not sure you can convey the "why" w/o going on and on to a point. If you want to share your viewpoint and reasons then you kind of need to be ready to educate people(which takes time) or just a to-the-point answer without the "why"

Re: quick answer

what kind of people? doctors, family, or what?

no one knows except my close family and his doctor, so I don't get hassled for it.

Re: quick answer

The why for us started when we found out my ds has an autism spectrum disorder.

But my top reasons for not vaccinating are:
--Toxins in the vaccines that by pass the immune system's first line of defense
--No controlled LONG term studies that have a PLACEBO to compare against
--No real proof that they don't trigger or play a part at least in some degree to ASD's, ADD/ADHD, and other problems children and society is facing today like auto-immune disorders.

I got one of my friends to look into them more and stop vaccinating by telling her that vaccines contain formaldehyde. She got a horrified look on her face, especially since her son is very speech delayed (he's 5, almost 6, and it's still very hard to understand him), her son then also started having seizures.

Re: quick answer

We always say that we did extensive research and determined that the "cons" of vaccines outweighed the "pros"; also that we don't think it is either healthy or appropriate to inject our infant with neurotoxins, endocrine disruptors, human DNA, and other toxins/preservatives, when they are born w/ a healthy immune system designed to fight off infection naturally.
