Undercover Moms Join Facebook Groups to Fight Myths About Autism

Parents of children with autism have some horrific experimental “treatments” they are willing to do to reverse their kid’s diagnosis. Melissa Eaton and Amanda Seigler are trying to change that.

The two mothers who both have children on the spectrum have teamed up to become watchdogs to catch parents who make their children eat bleach or drink their own urine in hopes to reverse autism.

They team up to notify child protective services when parents are abusing their children by using unconventional and frankly disgusting approaches. Parents who use these approaches are influenced by evangelists who share how-to videos on YouTube.

How do Eaton and Seigler know when a parent is doing this? Using a fake profile, they enter chat rooms designed for parents of children with autism to bounce ideas off each other.  When ideas started to get concerning they notify proper authorities.

One mom from Georgia complained about her son refusing to take enemas that she was using to administer chlorine dioxide. The parents who subscribe to these groups believe autism could be triggered by viruses, bacteria, fungal infections, parasites, heavy metal poisoning from vaccines, general inflammation, allergies, gluten, and even the moon.

“It really weighs on you, but kids are being abused,” Eaton told NBC. “You see it. You have the choice of doing something about it or letting it go. And I’m not the kind of person who can see something like that and just forget about it.”

With the help of Eaton and Seigler the tide is slowly beginning to turn. Social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook have cracked down on misinformation about the dangers of the vaccine.
