Vaccine Safety to be re-examined by CDC

My pediatrician and I were discussing vaccines. This happens every time I switch practices; I get 'the talk' about not vaccinating my children. The reason I don't is twofold; aborted fetal cell lines in vaccines, and the fact that Isabella contracted Whooping Cough from the old DTP vaccine (discontinued by the way). Christina is already delicate without risking her health to side effects of vaccines.
Here is a link to Dr William Sear's blog where he discusses a potential new study by the CDC into the claims that vaccines cause autism. I will be watching this closely.
For more information about the morality of those vaccines which use fetal cell lines go to Children of God for Life.

Thanks for the link--I'm not too big on vaccinations either but do have the kids get them once they are a year old, only one at a time though.

Doesn't Dr. Sears have a child with autism? It's about time he brings this to light.

Elizabeth, he has Stephen with Down syndrome, which he discusses too briefly in The Baby Book, but I don't know if he has an autistic child.
Maybe he's heard the horror stories about a normal child getting a shot who stops developing and talking.
