A Song for Anti-Vaxxers

 In The Politics of Autism, I analyze the discredited notion that vaccines cause autism. This bogus idea can hurt people by allowing disease to spread.

The British sister act Flo and Joan have a song for anti-vaxxers:
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word 
Daddy’s going to cure you with good wishes and herbs 
And if those good wishes do you wrong 
You won’t have to worry 
‘Cause you won’t last long 

 I will not have my angel injected with autism 
From these cocktails you concoct 
From witches’ tits and horses’ jizzum 
The facts might say otherwise 
But doctors screw up all the time
I haven’t trusted science since I saw the film Flubber
