Bill Gates: Andrew Wakefield's Autism-Vaccine Fraud is "Absolute Lie That Has Killed Thousands of Kids"

"And so the people who go and engage in these anti-vaccine efforts, they kill children."

- Bill Gates, speaking the truth in this CNN interview with Sanjay Gupta:
"Dr. Wakefield has been shown to have used absolutely fraudulent data. He had a financial interest in some lawsuits, he created a fake paper, the journal allowed it to run. All the other studies were done, showed no connection whatsoever again and again and again

So it’s an absolute lie that has killed thousands of kids. 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. And so the people who go and engage in those anti-vaccine efforts — you know, they, they kill children. It’s a very sad thing, because these vaccines are important.
Yes it's a very sad thing. So how can we educate parents and families who believe and perpetuate these killer anti-vaccination ideas despite all evidence against?

It really needs to be done, because unvaccinated children put other peoples' children at risk.
