A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them.

The reference links for the strip are in the next blog entry.

Now! Let's have a heated debate!

2013 update. Since I wrote this blog entry, this cartoon strip as well as many others on such subjects as homeopathy, chiropratic, evolution, and the supposed NASA Moon hoax landings, have been published in a book: Science Tales in the UK (Myriad Edtions) and How To Fake A Moon Landing in the US and Canada (Abrams). Here's the link to my main blog.

parents should NOT be coerced into vaccinating

Sure they should. This is a public health issue. If you don't vaccinate your children, it increases the risk that everyone ELSE's children will get sick. Herd immunity is real.

When you do something stupid that could potentially harm everyone else's kids, society has a right to step in.


What is clear is that funding into the causes of autism is sorely lacking.

I don't think that the fact that we don't know everything about a given problem or how to cure it necessarily means that "funding is lacking." Throwing money at something doesn't automatically generate an answer. The scientific community can't just magically produce answers for you on demand. If they could, we would already have cured cancer and AIDS and alzheimer's.

I have sympathy for your having to deal with autism. But it's not the scientific community's fault that you are dealing with autism. And they might not be ABLE to fix it even if you gave them all the money in the world.
