People are so focused on appearing to be inclusive that they miss the point.” The Oh Polly Inclusive account also featured the phrase “Zero % …

A former anti-vaxxer just admitted she was wrong. Now some enraged parents are coming after her.

Pennsylvanian mom Abbey Clint grew up in a household that didn’t believe in vaccinations or any other type of medicine a doctor might recommend for that matter. For example, there wasn’t anything for pain management in the house that wasn’t “all-natural.” Clint believes the avoidance of traditional medicine originated from her mother’s intense distrust of doctors. “I am thankful that I don’t need to be an expert on vaccines in order to be a mom and make common sense decisions for my family,” Clint told Upworthy. “It’s easy to get drawn into the emotional rhetoric of the antivaxx theories, but their whole pile of evidence is predicated upon a conspiracy theory that doesn’t hold water.” So, unsurprisingly, Clint grew into …
