McCarthy tweeted on Friday afternoon, "So so sorry Ottawa! I had to pull out of event because of my new show taping conflict but will be back in a few months to make up for it!"
However, Eagen said the foundation had a signed contract with McCarthy and had to negotiate a financial settlement with her representatives to get out of the deal
.

Denial and greed. Of course, they were idiots for dealing with that woman to start with.

In all fairness, Jenny McCarthy is a cancer, so that *does* represent a conflict of interests.


Also of note from the article: "We recognized that she had some incredible talent to bring to this event."

HAHAHAHAHA... yeah, okay.

That Linda Eagan is full of hilarious quotes:
""To be honest, we didn't expect this kind of response,"

Really?  You thought that using a vocally ignorant person as a headliner for your science funding efforts was a good idea?

Green actually did an episode of his show about his testicular cancer.  he was actually playing with the tumorous teste afterward.  I found it disturbing.

Prepare to be trampled by the herd.

Way i look at it now, people who take any injection offered by drug manufacturers under flimsy justification without applying critical thinking is a form of Darwinism that can exist in our society now that we've removed all the natural ones, so is ultimately a good thing.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled 2 minutes hate. And encourage the more abusive and angry of you to double your injections. Major symptom of brain damage is arbitrary aggression and rage, but i'm sure that's just a coincidence.

Yeah, welcome to California. Here are directions to the nearest Walgreens. Now go get your whooping cough vaccine, please.

Part of the problem though is that often adults don't keep up with their shots. I've heard tell that you don't get lifetime immunity from your childhood vaccinations (or maybe not all of them, only some of them? I don't remember for sure), and for some things we're not sure how long the immunity lasts. Can you imagine if smallpox re-emerged? The death toll would be atrocious. I think my generation was one of the last to get that vaccine. I got it, but my sis, who is only a year and a half younger than I, did not. Still, we're not sure how long that immunity lasts and while smallpox allegedly no longer exists in the wild (so to speak) it does exist in a couple of labs, both in the US and in Russia (that I know of, there may be others). That's kind of scary.

Did you kids know that according to the CDC itself, they cannot do proper scientific studies on the effectiveness of vaccines, because "Randomized, placebo-controlled trials cannot be performed ethically in populations for which vaccination already is recommended." When they do refer to studies alleged to show their effectiveness, they're actually using two groups of vaccinated people.

And yet she allowed her emotions about her son to get the best of her intelligence with this anti-vax thing. That doesn't sound too smart to me.

Not to go all studman but I think she's kind of nasty looking. Something about her face bothers me. I've known chicks that have that "look" and they were insufferable twats. Usually self absorbed STD dribbling cokehead slores to boot... which kind of describes her to a T (except for the STD part... I don't know her cooter critter status but I wouldn't be surprised if she has teh herp).

First, Whooping Cough is caused by bacteria.

Secondly, from the Journal of the American Medical Association, 1998 "Whooping Cough infections are common in an immunized population.".

I can't believe there are still nutters who think vaccinations cause autism, especially after the only study that suggested this was proven to be falsified.  Too embarrassed to admit they're wrong, I guess.

First of all, autism is GROSSLY over diagnosed. The correct diagnosis in almost all cases is poor parenting. They're kids. Learn to deal with them.

Second of all, who cares if someone is stupid enough not to get a vaccine. It's a self correcting problem. As long as you're vaccinated, you have nothing to worry about.

Unless you're hoping the entire population be vaccinated so that the targeted disease can be eradicated and we don't need to vaccinate future generations.

Great idea, maybe we should also compel all people with genetic shortcomings to be sterilized.

I thought i just made it clear i want many people to get vaccines. I think vaccines are great.

One thing me and certain groups have in common is utter disgust for the bleating herd of imbeciles. If we have to depopulate anyone it should be them. I only ask that vaccines don't become mandatory, so Darwinism can take place.

I saw her interviewed on PBS a couple of years ago about vaccines and came away feeling rather bad for her. She just knows SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED TO MY CHILD. And that's all she knows.

Not true. Unless the majority of people participate the diseases can linger around, mutate, get more potent (vaccine resistant), etc... Also some people legitimately cannot get the vaccine due to other health problems. If the diseases are floating around in the anti vaccer community they can be passed on to those folks who usually have enough problems as it is aaaand sometimes the vaccines just don't work for some people. There is no guarantee it will stop an infection.

The objective is to make the diseases so rare that the times the vaccine doesn't work or is unavailable there is very little chance of those people coming into contact with it.

Herd immunity or somesuch.

Tough luck. I'd rather have a lingering disease than a few outliers suffer from than a government bureaucrat mandating that I have to stick something in myself. Come to think of it, in a few generations the outliers will die out and problem solved!

That's the ticket.  In the case of whooping cough, especially, it's important because adult are likely to live through it with no long term effects.  Very young children - too young to vaccinate- just die.  So you protect the kids by making sure that nobody has it at all.

Sorry, the existence of flawed medical research doesn't automatically render Jenny McCarthy an expert on anything other than how to get paid to let people photograph her tits. But hey, she's good at that, I won't deny her that.
