Lets just say vaccinations such as the MMR do cause negative health effects in SOME people, the way i see it the people who dont vaccinate there children would rather them die from a horrific disease, than have a disability that can be helped and is not life threatening.
Because you stupid rules wind up infecting the rest of us, Einstein. Here's an idea, how about everybody who subscribes to the 'Our Body, Our Rules' credo move out to that tiny little island? The rest of us, you know the vast majority of reasonably intelligent folks, will all be a lot better off. Thanks.
Life is complex and dangerous, and I empathize with the fear of a parent who perceives an unvaccinated child as a threat as acutely as I empathize with the fear of a parent who has no, long-term, holistic understanding of what substances are now being injected into the object of their deepest love and hope and at which point there is no return from. I really do, and I don't know the answer to this complex subject. Perhaps there will be ways to bridge the two sides and we can lay a path of changes that put both sides at ease, but please don't look at one another as fool-hardy or fascist, respectively, because deep down you know it isn't true. Educated, caring people exist on both sides of this debate.

Its called social responsibility. What right do parents have to allow their children to be vulnerable to what can be potentially dangerous diseases? What right do parents have to spread disease through their non vaccinated children?
It is socially irresponsible to not have your child vaccinated and the government quite rightly pressurises parents through the media to get vaccinated.
Although people do no like the government not getting your child vaccinated is not a very intelligent way to express your dis-satisfaction.
What rights do parents have to put a needle in someone else's arm? Your child is their own person from birth. They might not want that vaccine.

I think we should forcefully inject a good dose of lead into those who believe they have the right to forcefully inject mercury into children.
You should do a bit of research on the mercury in the vaccine before you spout nonsense.
