14. anti vaxxers make strange bedfellows

On one hand, you have the crunchy hippie types who don't trust Big Pharma. On the other hand, you have the libertarians who want to defy the government. On the third hand you have the fundie homeschooling families who think that everything is in God's hands.

I used to live in Vancouver (in fact I want to go back to the area) for a campaign. I definitely saw the first two types of people while there.

My sister is a mom of 2 young children. She said that the antivaxxers are alive and well on social media and try to guilt trip parents against vaccinating their kids. Mommy bloggers are a huge part of the problem.
