The largest group of pediatricians in the nation is upset over an upcoming ABC show called "Eli Stone" because
It features British actor Jonny Lee Miller as a prophet-like lawyer who in the opening episode argues in court that a flu vaccine made a child autistic. When it is revealed in court that an executive at the fictional vaccine maker didn't allow his own child to get the shot, jurors side with the family, giving them a huge award.The writers of the show claim they would be "deeply upset" if parents were not vaccinating their children because of their show. I would ask, then why make let the nonsense triumph in your show?
I say kudos to the American Academy of Pediatrics for fighting the reason and for reminding me why I don't watch television.
