Anti-vaxxers will stop at nothing to fight the spread of accurate information and encourage the spread of preventable diseases like measles.
The latest example of their anti-science buffoonery comes to us via Twitter where one Lisa Bedrick expressed her concern that her daughter had been vaccinated by her father and grandmother.
Bedrick, who describes herself as “anti vaccines” and who mostly tweets generic messages praising God, was distressed. Making what she called a “big prayer request” for her daughter, Bedrick asked the internet to “Please pray that she will be ok” after being subjected to the dastardly disease-preventing serums.
I have a big prayer request. My husband and mother in law have my oldest daughter with them at their house. They got her 4 vaccines today without asking me. I am anti vaccines. Please pray she will be ok. ???? Have your kids always been ok after vaccine shots?— Lisa Bedrick (@angel28kc) August 7, 2019
People offered Bedrick thoughts…though not necessarily prayers.
I died as soon as I was vaccinated 🙁— Sam Grittner (@SamGrittner) August 8, 2019

God bless your husband and mother in law and fuck you for not wanting to vaccinate your children.— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) August 8, 2019
Vaccines turned my children into adults!
I mean it took a few years and all but yeah, they were just babies and then all of the sudden…like 19 years later…BOOM! They were all grown up and shit!

As for her concerns about the effects of vaccines, people reported that they were (amazingly) still alive after being inoculated against a variety of deadly diseases.

Vaccinate your kids, folks. Stop listening to anti-vaxx nonsense. https://t.co/8fcomY1fDq
Yes WE ARE ALL FINE.❤️ https://t.co/0NiVW3LYW8— Josette Jackson???? (@josette_jackson) August 9, 2019
All in all, people didn’t have much sympathy for the empty-headed prayer request.
YES LISA. MY KID IS OK. *BECAUSE* OF VACCINES my kid has not contracted -or spread- measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, hep A or B, whooping cough, and at least 6 diff strains of influenza. There is literally no reason to be "anti vaccines." Stop it. STOP IT LISA. https://t.co/atdLH81XXD— Jen Mustapha (@JenMustapha) August 8, 2019
Your prayers were answered. She’ll be ok now because she’s VACCINATED.— Enlightenist (@sjhawkwood) August 9, 2019
Here's your prayer:— ???????????????? HUMAN ???????????????? (@MaryEllenBella4) August 8, 2019
Thank you God for this delusional woman's husband and mother in law, and their good, responsible sense to have her child inoculated in order to protect this child and others from dangerous and sometimes deadly disease.
Of course. Vaccines are perfectly safe and you're foolish and gullible if you don't protect your kids. Grow up and enlighten yourself. https://t.co/I1z7jzdfN1— Lloyd Croskey (@Lloydxkey) August 8, 2019
I’m fine— Fionna O'Leary, Rees Mogg Can Call me Sir #FBPE (@fascinatorfun) August 8, 2019
But my brother who didn’t get the polio vaccine in time was not
Nor was a young man who courted me for a while whose parents were against “vaccines”He’s been in callipers & crutches virtually all of his life.
Be grateful your parents are doing your job. Grow up.
Prayers will not do a damn thing.— Rocky Mountain Views (@RockyMountViews) August 8, 2019
Your daughter will now be safer and will not run the risk of passing diseases onto others.
It is irresponsible to not get your child vaccinated.
Well as long as her other opinions are as bad as…..oh no.
Alcoholics are not “helpless.” They Can decide to be an alcoholic or to not be one. Just like those with mental illness Can decide to be mentally healthy, and homosexuals Can decide to be straight. We decide to make or break our future by the decisions we choose to make.— Lisa Bedrick (@angel28kc) August 9, 2019
