Anti-vaxxers thought they had a new ally, and then he psyched them out big time.
Marco Arturo is a smart kid and he wants everyone to know that vaccinations are safe. To do that, he cleverly pretended to take the side of anti-vaxxer parents who ridiculously believe that vaccines cause autism and are one huge conspiracy by the government.
“We’ve all been lied to by doctors and pharmaceutical companies about vaccines,” Arturo said. “After a lot of research I realized that vaccines do and will cause autism.”
Such thinking has led to the resurgence of diseases that had once been wiped out in our country such as measles and whooping cough, both of which have ravaged communities where not enough of the population is immunized to protect the most vulnerable among us.
In fact, an American citizen became the first to die of measles on our shores in 12 years because anti-vaxxers refuse to protect their children, and by extension, the public health.
Arturo then holds up a folder titled Evidence That Vaccines Cause Autism and says that he is prepared to show everyone the pages of evidence he has collected to prove how dangerous vaccines are and that he will explain his finding “page by page.”
At this point, anti-vaxxers were probably hanging on to the edge of their seats for the absolute proof they have been waiting for. But all they discovered was that they had been totally faked out.
As Arturo begins pulling out page after page, he comments that there is nothing printed on them. He continued to shuffle through the papers and then reaches a grand conclusion.
“I think it might be because there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that vaccines are linked to autism in any way whatsoever,” he said.
That sound you hear is the heads of anti-vaxxers exploding.
Arturo goes on to explain how vaccines have literally saved the lives of millions of children by eradicated diseases such as polio and meningitis. Even smallpox, he rightly declared, was beaten by humanity because of science and the vaccines that resulted from it.
The boy then pleaded with parents to get their kids vaccinated and once again pointed out that there is no evidence to prove that vaccines cause autism. But he did notice that there was something written on one of the pages. The word “MIC,” which he dropped.

This kid is the hero we need on the front lines educating people about vaccines.
