An anti-vaccination mother took to social media on Wednesday to share her decision to give out tainted lollipops for Halloween.
The Australian mother, who identifies herself online as Sarah Walker RN, shared in the private Facebook group "Stop Mandatory Vaccination" that her son, whose name has been redacted, contracted chickenpox and that she planned to "help" other children in the community by spreading the virus through candy.
"So my beautiful son [redacted] has the chickenpox at the moment and we've both decided to help others with natural immunity this Halloween!" Walker wrote. "We have the packaging open and closing down pat and can't wait to help others in our community."
Walker later took to Facebook to double down on her argument, despite widespread backlash online.
"Dear internet trolls," she wrote. "You think you’re right by judging me and my trying to report me and get me fired. I don’t care. The health and wellbeing of my baby is far more valuable than any job."
"You say I’m vile and gross like I have done something that hundreds of thousands of parents haven’t already done," she continued. "How many times do you see children dropped off to day care or school when they’re clearly sick and contagious? Exactly!"
"And I'm offering life long immunity for the price of a couple of blisters and a few days off school," she added.
I totally agree with you, Jeanette. This woman has no right to make the choice for anyone as to whether their children are exposed to an infectious disease...Besides which, what did she do in order to taint those lollipops - ?!? Whatever it was, it was unsanitary! (Could been eewww, icky, gross to top it off.)
That nurse needs to permanently lose her license & be prosecuted for whatever applies - from outraging the common decency to simple assault,to poisoning, to ..... whatever fits.
