The Anti-Vax Vaccine

click for comic

Michele Bachmann came out against the HPV vaccine a couple debates ago. Now, you can argue about the vaccination schedule and the pharmaceutical industry’s corrupting influence on politics, but to be flat-out against vaccines is to be ignorant of history. My parents’ generation had to deal with polio, and the generation before that had to deal with all sorts of nasty shit that we no longer see in the western world thanks to vaccines. But if you like puss-filled bumps, and infant mortality, by all means, move to a remote island and live your vaccine-free dream.
