Bill Gates speaks truth: “Those anti-vaccine efforts — they kill children”

March 1, 2011 by  

Talking to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Bill Gates minced no words in stating his opinion on anti-vaxxers and fraudulent researcher Andrew Wakefield:

“So it’s an absolute lie that has killed thousands of kids. Because the mothers who heard that lie, many of them didn’t have their kids take either pertussis or measles vaccine, and their children are dead today. And so the people who go and engage in those anti-vaccine efforts — you know, they, they kill children. It’s a very sad thing, because these vaccines are important.”

The strong language Gates used is necessary, because facts aren’t working on those who ignorantly fear vaccinations. And they are putting all children at risk, not just their own. Two years ago, I wrote a post titled “Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy want your children to die,” after Carrey penned a ridiculous column, rehashing long-debunked theories vaccinations. In that, I wrote this:

The studies are in. The vaccine program is a not a vast conspiracy. It is a successful program that has literally wiped many dangerous illnesses off the continent. The only conspiracy on the subject is the one endlessly and ignorantly pursued by Carrey and McCarthy.

There is only one way left to go with the ant-vaxxer crowd – let them know over and over again that they are child killers. Because it’s the truth. And that truth is just not sinking in.

    You were out in front on this issue, Billy. I recall you posting about Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey a few years back.

    I think I can understand their initial reaction and anger and how it possibly clouded their judgment.

    And they were led astray by this fraudulent researcher.

    But still, there was plenty of information available on the problems with the anti-vaxer position. And they chose to ignore it.
