Bill Gates Says Anti-Vaccine Effort Kills Children

Hugh Pickens writes writes “CNN has an interesting interview with Bill Gates who says that unbelievable progress is being made in both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them. The improvements could cut the number of children who die every year from about 9 million to half that. But Gates has harsh words for those who engage in anti-vaccine efforts, especially Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who falsified data to ‘prove’ a fraudulent link between vaccines and autism. ‘It’s an absolute lie that has killed thousands of kids,’ says Gates. ‘Because the mothers who heard that lie, many of them didn’t have their kids take either pertussis or measles vaccine, and their children are dead today.’”
