    I wouldn't say you lack compassion. What you lack is perspective and rationality.

    Your child apparently got hit by an adverse reaction that is so rare, her doctors didn't recognize it. Statistically, even given your allegations of underreporting, it is far safer to vaccinate than not.

    The rate of kids using the internet increased.

    The rate of kids having access to tablets and smartphones increased

    Amongst other things...

    Better keep your kids away from TV, video games, fast food, the internet, electronics, amongst other things since all those things have been increasing as well then it must be treated as if they cause ADHD until it can be proven 100% that they don't.

    Correlation doesn't equal causation
    I already stated that rising ADHD rates are most likely due to poor diet.

    Those are facts. Additionally the two times I did get the flu vaccine... I got the flu that week. Only two times that I got the flu in that decade.

    I did not ask but feel free to call them.

    Nope... the ones that don't seem to give a **** that my daughter almost died or that she should be an accepted loss are the ****ing pieces of **** that lack compassion, my young uneducated friend.
    There are obviously risks to the vaccines, but the way to evaluate "compassion" with vaccines is in comparing a world without them and with them, and the fact that I don't think you dispute is the health of the population improves dramatically with vaccines, FAR fewer people get sick and die, and at risks that are lower than taking Tylenol.

    It's obviously unfair to trivialize the risks that you apparently experienced through your children, but it would still be uncompassionate, and borderline evil, to acknowledge that real risk and advise others to avoid vaccines because of it. If that advice was widely followed, for example if a poor country in Africa decided against vaccines because of the adverse events, many, many more men, women and children would get sick and die of totally preventable disease.

    You listed specific categories of people that are susceptible. We have an ongoing outbreak. I asked if, since you listed the susceptible groups, they are in fact the ones contracting the measles. Wouldnt it have been much more direct and honest for you to have said "you know...I simply dont know the answer to that question"? I mean...that IS what you said...

    I don't live there. Do you?

    Cars are regulated. How they're built and operated are regulated to provide reasonable safety standards to protect the people. Why aren't you railing against those fascist speed limits?
    Incorrect analogy. Cars are regulated but not that you have to operate one. Are there any regulations that people have to do something? Regulated to normal free people and not convicts or mentally disabled patients?

    I am for vaccines and would never tell a person to not vaccinate their child... I am simply discussing risks real and potential that many here refuse to accept as a remote possibility or that they do exist but are irrelevant and that some parents need to just "take one for the team". That's all... vaccines should NEVER be mandatory.

    I don't see it that way either... it was an observation based off of past experience, that's all.

    Perhaps you should read more of my comments before make such an assertion...
