Terminology used in the vax vs anti-vax 'debate'
I just read Homeopathy regime is rejected as judge tells parents to immunise child on the SMH site. The story is sad in that it has to be reported on at all but that's not what I was wondering about for the purpose of this post. It is more about the terminology used in the article.
The author made references to "traditional immunisation" when referencing the actual vaccination schedule. When referencing the SCAM the mother preferred the term "homeopathic vaccination" was used. The way this reads to me "traditional immunisation" would be sending the kids outside with other kids to play in the dirt and get scratched and bruised.
Surely "modern vaccination" would have been a better term. Or even better, "actual vaccination."
