Child Immunization Is Compared To Rape By Anti-Vaccine Group

The Australian Vaccination-Skeptic Network recently shared a very terrible image on their Facebook page. The picture equated vaccines to rape and is captioned:

“FORCED PENETRATION: Really- no big deal, if it’s just a vaccination needle, and he’s a doctor. Do you really ‘need’ control over your own choices?”

The image was met with obvious backlash from a variety of women’s rights groups. The administrators of the group doubled down on the criticism saying:

“This post isn’t tasteless – it is honest. What truly IS tasteless is our elected government trying to tell us that we have to vaccinate our children even if we don’t believe it is best for their health.”

Wow. This is just wrong on so many levels. First off, vaccines are empirically proven to save lives. To argue vaccines are dangerous with so much science saying the contrary is simply ludicrous. Beyond pushing a harmful pseudoscience agenda, the group throws rape survivors under the bus with such an outrageous comparison. No, a helpful medical procedure such as getting a vaccine is not anything like being assaulted. These people should be ashamed of themselves.

UPDATE: The group finally removed the post.
