I didn't know she was going to be on. I'll try to catch it. She's been making false claims lately and it's bugging me. But I still think she's an inspiration for doing all that she has for her son.

She bugs the poop out of me. The way she is twisting current events, she is using her celebrity to spread propaganda - how convenient that she is promoting her book at the same time....

Christina, she actually made the statement that the court ruled that vaccines cause autism, I heard and saw her say it myself on another show - when that is not true - but many people won't look to the whole story.
Plus the comment she made about watching the soul drain form her son's eyes when he got his MMR - really bothered me , I truly dislike scare tactics, and I don't like an autistic stare likened to being soulless - it implies one is empty, and just because someone isn't expressve doens't mean they are empty.

^^Yes, that upset me, too! Ya'll know how I feel about vaxes, but the fact is that the court ruled on one isolated case.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

As far as everything I have looked into there is NO proven cause for autism. It's been studied to the molecular level. But in my opinion, I would rather have an autistic child who is alive and well than to chance my child getting an illness that could have easily been prevented by a vaccine. But I know this can be argued and I don't want to start an argument.

Jenny is not a doctor and has no right to use her celebrity to get people to believe what she wants them too. How can she prove that vaccines cause autism? She can't! I just wish she would be less opinionated. Why not let people be informed and make up their own minds? Can't she use her fame to raise awareness instead of trying to push her beliefs on people?

I didnt' watch it. Like some of the others, I'm not a Jenny M fan. It doesn't really have anything to do with her son having autism though...I've just always found her annoying.
