    Jesus, just admit that your initial reasoning was wrong. Measles is communicable from up to 100 feet away. So you could not even let your infant go near the neighbor kid, and they could still get it.

    However, your flawed reasoning does demonstrate why a public health issue should not be left simply to the whims of a parent.

    Yeah, unfortunately we can't let the stupid people just kill themselves by this means, maybe paintings of bridges on cliffsides, yeah.
    But if we all stay inside, it could work. I say let the 22% be morons and kill their children and then we can send them to jail if they don't die from some horrible infliction brought on by their own spawn. Mohoohoha....
    Wait we already do this. Thank the gods someone was thinking.

    vaccination is all positives for those without an egg allergy. and as technology improves, the egg allergy issue will be solved, as well.

    anti-vax woo puts children at risk.

    Parental rights do not supercede child welfare.
    Too bad you wouldn't say the same for abortion. Gotcha!

    If one doesn't think of the fetus as a child that is not a "Gotcha" moment.

    Amen.

    Anyway, you cannot vaccinate a fetus.

    Why does the anti-abortion crowd think it has the higher ground on caring for children?

    with abortion a child isn't put at risk... we are talking about a cluster of cells that even though they do have the potential to become sentient , they are not. in abortion there is no child welfare it is only personification of a cell cluster.

    But nice point. My position would be hypocritical if I saw abortion as child harm.
