It will never cease to baffle me that in the year 2019 this country is still heatedly debating over vaccinations. While the anti-vaxxer movement may have started as a small group of ill-informed parents struck with paranoia, it has now become a widespread delusion and it’s honestly terrifying. Even a recent measles outbreak doesn’t seem to be enough to scare parents into vaccinating.
On Monday, one anti-vaxxer mom decided to ask people on Twitter to refrain from “shaming” those who choose not to vaccinate their kids and Twitter showed her no mercy.
21-year-old mother of three Melanni (AKA @3peasinmypod) recently asked Twitter to stop “shaming” anti-vax parents.
Fortunately, Twitter was quick to shut her down.
Nope, antivaxxers deserve all the shame and mockery, they are a plague on humanity, which is fitting given how likely they are to contribute to one. pic.twitter.com/4WolJbRc90

Someone even made this excellent comparison.
While another pointed out the recent measles outbreak.
And several parents chimed in.
Sorry, @3peasinmypod, there’s going to be plenty of shaming here.
