"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
It is a childish way to look at it.Starting an epidemic isn't violating a different person?
If I have a common cold and you catch it I "violated" you.
If I take a dump and you breath in my gaseous fecal matter elements I have "violated" you.
Many things "violate" people... the real and only relevant question is: Was it intentional?
Lastly, not getting vaccinated (maintaining bodily sovereignty, which was the argument presented) is not starting an epidemic.
I can defeat these silly arguments all day long and not even start breathing hard...
You keep claiming "natural" immunity lasts longer, but I haven't seen anything to substantiate that.
Furthermore, it doesn't really matter how long "natural" immunity lasts because the only way to acquire it is to become seriously ill first.
Vaccinations have clearly reduced the number of people who have to experience serious side effects in order to gain immunity to a disease because you can just avoid the disease in the first place with vaccinations.

One of you will end up here next!
Your statement is ridiculous. A mother at home isnt doing much to protect her kids from diseases they are exposed to at school. Unless she gets them vaccinated.
There are several things you dont seem to understand about it but one thing herd immunity helps with are those that cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons. Herd immunity provides them with *some* protection but bringing them into less contact with the disease.
Kids still die. If you dont want to pay attention until their bodies pile up, that's up to you.
It's been happening here in WA St for 3 yrs with whooping cough. Lack of vaccination has led to several dead babies a year. Not enough to rate in your system apparently.
