A pediatrician’s devastating rant against vaccine deniers has gone hugely viral

One pediatrician’s Facebook rant was so powerful, it went viral as soon as the folks over at The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe grabbed an image of it and shared it on their page.

With the spotlight shining firmly on the havoc wreaked by vaccine deniers, tons of material for and against vaccination has received huge engagement on the Internet.

Anyone who has followed DeadState knows exactly where we stand on the issue, and as the debate (or lack thereof) has progressed, so has the focus. Slamming ignorant parents and keeping tabs on where the latest measles outbreak pops up has dominated the news, but it’s easy to forget those who are most vulnerable to the anti-vaxxers’ delusions: the gravely ill who cannot receive all their vaccines, and who rely on us to do so for their protection.

One pediatrician hasn’t forgotten, and a rant he posted on Facebook in early February was so powerful, it went viral as soon as the folks over at The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe grabbed an image of it and shared it on their page.

Look:

mike ginsburgAlthough it hasn’t been independently confirmed, a source has told us that since his rant went viral, Dr. Ginsburg has had to change his name on Facebook and hide his account due to excessive harassment by trolls representing the anti-vaxxer community.

    I can believe he got a lot flack for that rage-filled crap. I am not pro or con on this debate, but if some asshole rants at me like that, he pushes me in the opposite direction. Idiots like this make it an ‘all or nothing’ issue, like the Taliban or the GOP. Of course it makes good sense to get many vaccines, but what about the mess of flu vaccines they try to push on you, not even knowing if they will have any positive effect at all? Why were they all hysterical about keeping my tetanus vaccines up to date for years, then suddenly dropped them altogether? Idiots like this force the issue into a conflict, rather than simply offering a few honest and rational reasons why certain vaccines ARE really safe and SHOULD BE on your mandatory list, however long or short that list is.

    He had me until he invoked CPS. Contrary to his belief, they WILL visit you and I don’t give a damn how righteously peeved he is at anti-vaxxers, you do NOT call CPS unless someone is actually beating their kids. He has the right to not want to be their doctor, but that’s about it.

    Kudos, and a loud smacking high five. All pediatricians should do this.

    Good for you Doctor. Now here’s hoping other pedestrians follow your led. This whole thing over vaccinations is insane.

    I’m sure there will be tons of outcry about discrimination. Look at it this way; if you are anti-vaxx, you won’t want a doctor who believes in vaccines anyway, right?

    Doctors are businessmen who sell vaccinations, medications and services. If One does not like His bedside manner then One can shop for a different Doctor.

    Unless there is a valid medical reason not to get vaccinated, you should be. Kudos to this doctor, though the CPS threat is a bit much to me. I used to work in a PICU and now work home health with elderly. Both populations are susceptible to these diseases. I’m susceptible myself thanks to some medical issues of my own, though they don’t prevent me from getting vaccinated, so I do. I can’t afford to come down with something and possibly spread it to one or more of my clients. Claiming religious or philosophical conflicts is BS. The stats from before vaccines and now show just how effective they are at preventing/reducing the severity of these highly communicable diseases. These parents need to have their heads checked

    You’re absolutely retarded. None of those diseases or problems are cause by vaccines.

    Perhaps the good doctor might be forgiven for losing it with morons like you who think that they’re qualified to practice medicine because they once worked at CVS. If you actually read “that rage-filled crap” instead of engaging in macho posturing, you might learn something.

    Physicians can only offer medical advice and treatment based on the science of the day, not the hearsay evidence of urban mythology. No one was “hysterical” about tetanus shots and it is simply untrue to suggest that flu vaccines have no effect.

    At the end of the day, the doctor’s patients are helpless children, not ignorant mouth-breathers like you who confuse their inane superstitions with reality.

    Please don’t bother responding. You have nothing to say worth reading.

    If we invoke CPS against adherents to religious sects that don’t believe in medical intervention why wouldn’t we report parents who recklessly expose their children to diseases that are known killers?

    But wait, you’re from New Jersey!
