OREGONIAN OPINION: PEDS AGAINST FREE SPEECH?

Oregonlivelogo_242x90Our own JB Handley is featured in THIS article from Oregon Live which begins: "When the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) learned that the first episode of a new television series on ABC would feature an autistic child harmed by vaccines, it cried "irresponsible" and demanded that the show be canceled. In turn, activists like Portland's J.B. Handley, founder of Generation Rescue, which supports parents of autistic children, cried: "Censorship."

The article ends with:

The AAP and the CDC would rather the ABC program not air so that parents do not even learn about the vaccine controversy. Most parents are unlikely to use medical information from a fictional television program as the only basis to make health decisions for themselves or their children. But such a program can raise real life issues that trigger personal research so that when medical treatments are considered there is true informed consent. What is the AAP so afraid of?

The middle is pretty good too. Check it out. Thank you Sandra Duffy.
