Bristol Palin laughs at parents who 'don't vaccinate' their children

Cracking up! Bristol Palin had a good laugh on her Instagram Story when a fan joked about parents who “don’t vaccinate their children,” two weeks after Kailyn Lowry admitted that she hasn’t immunized her 1-year-old son, Lux.

It all started when an Instagram user bashed theTeen Mom OG star, 28, for “forcing” her pro-life beliefs on her social media followers, which led the mother of three to share her thoughts on her Thursday, February 7, Instagram Story.

“All these people who want to rush to the defense of animals but can’t even sit here and acknowledge that that’s life with a human body just completely blows my mind,” she said.

This led one of her followers to message her and write, “Probably the same ones that don’t vaccinate their children but keep their pets up to date” — which gave the reality star a good laugh.

She recorded herself cracking up, saying, “Whoever wrote this comment is hilarious because that is super funny and so true.”

This comes two weeks after fellow MTV personality Lowry, 26, revealed on her “Coffee Convos” that her youngest son had not been vaccinated like his older siblings and clapped back at criticism the next day.

“The only thing I can really say and continue to stand for, is to parent how it’s best for your child and family,” the Teen Mom 2 star told InTouch Weekly. “People don’t love everything I do, but I don’t shove my beliefs down anyone else’s throat. I know what’s best for my kids and other parents know what’s best for theirs.”

The mother of three said that even though she’d vaccinated her eldest son, Isaac, she changed her mind about immunizations after talking to her friends and watching a documentary on Netflix.

MD and Atlanta-based pediatrician, Jennifer Shu, who does not treat Lowry’s little ones, exclusively told Us Weekly where this misconception comes from.

“One, vaccines have been so successful that recent generations of parents do not realize how serious these diseases can be,” she explained. “Two, Dr. Andrew Wakefield and colleagues published a fraudulent but highly publicized journal article in 1998 that was instrumental in creating fears about vaccines.”
