    And this is what the GOP willfully destroyed research funding for with a PP ear-mark.

    From: http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/08/health/zika-doubled-brazil-birth-defects/


    http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/...razil-since-zika-outbreak-began-cdc-says.html

    The pictures from Brazil are heartbreaking: baby after baby born with a small head and damaged brain after an attack by the Zika virus during pregnancy. The official numbers are equally disturbing: The rate of birth defects involving the nervous system nearly doubled across Brazil after Zika arrived.

    Rates of Guillain-Barré and encephalitis, myelitis and encephalomyelitis showed a similar increase in the Northeast. Hospitalizations for Guillain-Barré increased by nearly 3% until the outbreak peaked in July of last year, while the Northeast was the only area of the country to see an increase in CNS.

    These are the pictures that the CDC needs to start running. People are playing politics and these mosquitoes just don't care.

    Just in Brazil. Hmm. Mosquitoes observe borders. Why can't Mexicans?

    What do you propose to do? Take away their passports?

    By their replies we can see that Aaron and Alcott do not care about Zika and the unborn.

    We should build a wall. And build it BIG. A WALL WILL STOP THEM DARN IMMIGRATING CRITTERS.
