Autism vs Vaccines
Resources:

The effect of falsely balanced reporting of the autismvaccine controversy on vaccine safety
perceptions and behavioral intentions. Is a actual study done for the purpose of getting to the bottom
of the topic. This source has charts and explanation on the research of the link and non-link to the
autism perspective and vaccines. I would use this source as a way to persuade the reader to see the pros
and cons of vaccines and the cause of it in autism.

Vaccines and Autism: A Tale of Shifting Hypotheses is a study that also goes into detail on the
persuasion that concludes that vaccines do not cause autism. This is one side of the argument. I would
use this article in my position paper to show that vaccines are not the cause.

For this post, list four brand new sources that inform your thinking about your topic for your
position paper. All of your sources should be new sources you havent used in previous writing
thus far. If you can, attempt to include one form of field research, one form of internet research
(based on the above presentations), and two sources from the SLCC library databases. For
each source, list all relevant reference information (author, title, publication date, publisher,
pages, etc.). Then in 3-5 sentences, provide a short summary of each source and say how you
might use it in your position paper (for a total of 12-20 sentences). Remember that because this
project seeks to persuade your opposition, one or more of your sources might represent
oppositional viewpoints.
