They want the comfy couch....
...Give 'Em the Hot Seat!
This past week, Amy Pisani - Executive Director of Every Child By Two sent an e-mail blast out to supporters begging for them to email Oprah and fill out the web-form. They've been told that is how to get on the show and they really want to talk about vaccines.
In your comments, please request that Oprah invite credible scientists and/or physicians to explain the science of vaccines to her viewers. We also would like her to invite parents who have suffered the loss of a child from a vaccine-preventable disease, and a parent of an autistic child who can speak on behalf of the many families that are frustrated over the continued focus on vaccines and their supposed link to autism and the therapies that focus on “repairing vaccine damage”.
So, ECB2 wants to get their Amanda Peet onto Oprah's comfy couch.
Sounds like a plan.
How about we take it a step further?
Invite both sides and have both sides represented.
Because lets face it, every time that Jenny McCarthy has been on the show - representatives from "that side" of the fence have declined to participate. Sure, they'll send a slide with a CDC statement but that is far from showing up and being present to discuss the issue at hand. Ginger Taylor share's Pamela Felice's suggestion at her blog, Adventures in Autism right down to a proposed attendance list.
It is long overdue to sit down and debate/discuss this like adults. Professionals and Parents. The future of our children and our nation is at stake here. I'm not envisioning some sort of cat fight between celebrities Jenny vs Amanda (...though I'm sure that'd be great for network ratings!)
Oprah, you need to do this.
