Reader Bradlee was driving through Amarillo, Texas, when he saw this disturbing billboard saying “Vaccines can cause autism” (subtitle: “Choose Intelligent Design”).
The signs — there are at least two of them — have been up for over a month, and a lot of local residents are rightfully infuriated. Not that “Dr. Fitt” gives a damn.
“It really concerned me when I saw it, because I was like people are going to see this and believe it without doing their own research and doing their own investigating, without talking to their own doctors,” Parent Tashi Haley said. “It just made me upset seeing it.”
The sponsor of the sign, Roby Mitchell M.D. or Dr. Fitt, claims there is evidence showing a link between vaccines and autism and what he is putting on the sign is nothing new. He said he just wants parents to be informed.
To state the obvious: There is no link between autism and vaccines. None. And Intelligent Design, in whatever context it’s meant, is also a scam.
Dr. Fitt, by the way, isn’t even a doctor anymore. His license was revoked in 2012 after he prescribed “colostrum bovine treatment” to cure cancer. He’s also been in legal trouble of a different sort a couple of times before.
Not exactly someone whose judgment is worth trusting.
