    World Bank statistics indicate that some of the countries that the kids are traveling from actually have higher vaccination rates than the United States.
    The U.S. has a 92 percent vaccination rate for measles.
    Mexico vaccinates 99 percent of its children;
    Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras all have a 93 percent vaccination rate.

    And there are a lot of California communities with far lower vaccination rates than the national average and it's in these communities where the outbreaks are happening....

    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."

    Did the idiot rag and the author mention the invasion of diseased illegal aliens?

    That dangerous asshole in the white house did this.
    It's not quite aggregated to levels of full-blown, multi-state pandemic.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Luckily the legislation is trending my way. Personal exemptions are being attacked in a number of states, even California is picking up the slack and experts think it could be abolished by the end of the year. So roll up your sleeve and get ready for your medicine! =)

    Thankfully we moved away from what is becoming a more and more fascist country... (that is not why we moved... just a coincidence)

    Also, apparently there have been 31 recent legal proposals to expand exemptions... so who knows.

    If mandatory vaccinations do happen and an innocent child dies any lawmaker who voted for the bill should have a child of theirs put to death...

    I edited my post and we left for an adventure. Nothing else... and I don't like what I see happening to my beautiful US of A. Neither do most of my conservative family members...

    In California too, we've had a real problem with whooping cough. We're pretty sure my husband got it, but we got him on antibiotics fast (didn't bother to have him tested). A co-worker in Minneapolis wasn't as lucky and suffered for weeks before doctors realized what she had. No, she didn't die, but she felt miserable for a very long time. Turns out the vaccine for whooping cough wears off; I've gotten my booster I hope everyone else has too. Between kids not getting vaccinated and adults being at risk, it's been really bad in California.

    I especially liked the last several sentences.


    Of course I vaccinated my children. Didn't think twice. Not a big fan of the measles or mumps or rubella -- to name a few very preventable diseases.

    And here is where I may lapse for a moment -- into opinion.

    The anti-vaccination argument is often snugly wrapped in the "I love my kids" sentiment. And, I find it, well, a little insulting.

    To suggest that anyone who vaccinates their kids doesn't love them is a whole new level of lunacy. But here is the fact of the matter, for me.

    It's not just because I love my kids that I vaccinated them -- it's because I love your kids as well.
