What she said

Jamie Bernstein documents her encounter with Andrew Wakefield, discredited doctor and researcher who is responsible for scaring untold numbers of parents into not vaccinating their kids, in a post at The Friendly Atheist.

She met Wakefield and handed him a handwritten note that read as follows:

Dear Andrew Wakefield,

I know that you truly believe that what you are doing is helping people and that the ends justify the means, but I just want you to know that the things you are doing –- the actions you have taken in the past have hurt people –- killed people. Your work has scared and manipulated parents into not vaccinating their children, putting them and their entire community at risk, all in the name of safety. Children have died because of you. I just want to make sure that you fully understand that.

Sincerely,
Jamie

Exactly.
