Parents can be selfish

So you wish to not vaccinate your child, to protect your child from fourteen childhood diseases.

Well, listen to your child choke on pertussis. Perhaps you enjoy the sounds. But that poor child is suffering.

Measles is another charmer that is readily available to the unprotected infant. Are you so selfish as to leave the child in jeopardy?

The callousness of selfish parents should be charged with criminal behavior and vaccination be court ordered. The confusion that comes from flighty charges and expectations have got to be questioned by doctors and public services.

These foolish negative parents must consider history. Children died from these diseases. Five hundred years ago, one in three children died. Look at the statistics now, and refuse to let the children be free of pain, suffering and disfigurement.

My children are fully vaccinated but one has a weakened immune system so vaccines don't always work. When these selfish individuals don't vaccinate their children they endanger my child as well as babies and the elderly. If you don't want vaccinate...that's fine, but move to a commune with the rest of the uneducated so that you only endanger your friends.
