Do deleted comments and a lack of capability to post new ones mean that author Thomas D. Taylor has been censored? Some would probably say yes.
Taylor does not know for sure what’s happening over at Autism Mothers on Facebook, but he has his suspicions.
“I responded to some posts about cures not approved by the FDA or similar governing bodies existent in other countries, and also to allegations that vaccines cause autism,” says Taylor. “Though I am not a licensed medical professional, my position has always been that medical treatments not approved by a government agency ought not to be attempted, and that studies seem to predominately indicate that vaccines do not cause autism.”
Just as many in the autism community call the drug companies which are deemed by some to be responsible for “infecting” the world’s children with autism “Big Pharma”, Taylor is of the opinion that most of these rumors are spread by “Big Homeopathy”.
“I see a lot of rich homeopaths out there who claim to treat and cure autism,” says Taylor. “But I don’t see many cured autistics. What I do see are lots of expensive treatments with anecdotal reports (rather that peer-reviewed studies ) for ‘evidence’.”
Further, Taylor says:
“You can see the impression Big Homeopathy makes on people when they are so afraid of contrary views that they seem to prevent you from presenting said views. Fortunately, there is a way to identify who these types of people are.”
Taylor is referring to one of his books “Autism’s Politics and Political Factions: A Commentary.”
“The book is available all over the world in paperback and ebook format,” says Taylor. “Just check any Amazon website.”
Taylor sincerely hopes that the censorship by some anti-vaxers on others who do not agree with their opinions comes to an end, but he doubts that will happen.
“In the meantime, perhaps people will wise up and read my book,” says Taylor.
