Dr. Wolfson Keeps a Straight Face about his Antivaccination Elitism

An Arizona cardiologist finally came out and said what the underlying attitude is behind parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. In an interview with CNN last Monday, he openly admitted that he doesn’t care who gets the measles from his unvaccinated kid.

During his ridiculous CNN interveiw Dr. Jack Wolfson said,  “I’m not going to sacrifice the well-being of my child. My child is pure. It’s not my responsibility to be protecting their child.”

Wolfson said this with a straight face to a camera during the well-publicized measles outbreak currently taking place in California. CNN included a piece about a leukemia-stricken child who can’t be vaccinated because of chemo, and must therefore rely only on the commonly understood concept of herd immunity to protect her from infection from contagions such as measles.

The CNN interview happened immediately after Wolfson appeared in a radio spot on KPNX, saying, “As far as I’m concerned, it’s very likely that her leukemia is from vaccinations in the first place,”

This completely honest reply really sums up why antivacination isn’t just a personal choice for every family. It’s actually wrong. Listen to this nonsense:

“I could live with myself easily. It’s an unfortunate thing that people die, but people die. And I’m not going to put my child at risk to save another child. I’m not going to sacrifice the well-being of my child. My child is pure.”
