What right do parents have to allow their children to be vulnerable to what can be potentially dangerous diseases?

So, if you don't vaccinate your kid and he/she gets measles, and infects my kid and he dies -- can I go ahead and sue you? Or go after you for negligent manslaughter?

Not every child who is vaccinated builds antibodies to the particular sickness the vaccination is aimed at which is what vaccinations normally do- they produce antibodies which in most cases build an immunity. There will always be a certain percentage of people for whom vaccinations do not produce the desired effect and regardless of being vaccinated are still at risk for catching illnesses. Assuming that just because a child has received a vaccination makes them immune and therefore safe is a misconception- whether or not a vaccine has done it's job cannot be proven until the vaccinated person has been exposed to the virus.
This week I have been consistently barraged no matter what media form I am searching or which news site I am reading, by the insistence that we vaccinate our children & the demonization of those that choose not to.

You'd think these gods among men in our medical labs would have developed a test of some sort... I mean this isn't like the SSRI/antidepressant drugs which try to apply a chemical treatment to a problem which has no chemical imbalance that is testable, it's a virus and antibody reaction!
