"I Donít Vaccinate My Child Because Itís My Right To Decide What Eliminated Diseases Come Roaring Back
The decision to cause a full-blown, multi-state pandemic of a virus that was effectively eliminated from the national population generations ago is my choice alone, and regardless of your personal convictions, that right should never be taken away from a childís parent. Never. Say what you will about me, but Iíve read the information out there and weighed every option, so I am confident in my choice to revive a debilitating illness that was long ago declared dead and let it spread like wildfire from school to school, town to town, and state to state, until it reaches every corner of the country. Leaving such a momentous decision to someone you havenít even met and who doesnít care about your child personallyónow thatís absurd! Maybe I choose to bring back the mumps. Or maybe itís diphtheria. Or maybe itís some other potentially fatal disease that can easily pass among those too young or too medically unfit to be vaccinated themselves. But whichever highly communicable and formerly wiped-out disease that I opt to resurrect with a vengeance, it is a highly personal decision that only I and my family have the liberty to make.
You may choose to follow the government-recommended immunization schedule for your child, and that's your decision as a parent. And I might choose to unleash rubella on thousands upon thousands of helpless people, and that's my decision as a parent."
That dangerous asshole in the white house did this.
Let me guess, Obama made the Amish contract measles and bring it back to the US? As I stated earlier, there are literally millions of people who travel through the US every single year illegally AND legally. Not all of them are vaccinated. Measles could have entered the country about a million different ways and not necessarily through illegal immigrants. Keep making it up as you go though.LOS ANGELES -- The largest U.S. measles outbreak in recent history isn't the one that started in December at Disneyland. It happened months earlier in Ohio's Amish country, where 383 people fell ill after unvaccinated Amish missionaries travelled to the Philippines and returned with the virus.
The Ohio episode drew far less attention, even though the number of cases was almost four times that of the Southern California outbreak, because it seemed to pose little threat outside close-knit religious communities.
The Disneyland outbreak has already spread well beyond the theme parks that attract tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe, who could then return home with the virus. Disease investigators for weeks raced to identify measles-stricken patients, track down potential contacts and quarantine them if necessary.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Were your parents jailed? Did you press charges?
How do you feel about the invasion? How do you feel about that piece of absolute **** in the white house who encouraged this invasion of diseased illegal aliens? Should he be prosecuted? The correct answer is "Yes, Misterveritis. The piece of absolute **** should be prosecuted for failing to secure our borders."
Clearly, I was not opposed to the hundreds of shots I received over the years. I do believe the people, and not busybody bureaucrats, should decide.
