Name-calling from the get go, huh? How mature of you.
It’s particularly ironic that you would call those who stand against heavy-handed government mandated immunization Nazis. Historically, such strong armed government mandates accompany Nazism and fascism, but you turn that around and call those who oppose that type of government action Nazis.
Does it hurt to twist your brain into a contortion like that?
Look at it this way: If immunizations really work on an individual basis, then what does it matter to the immunized if some are not immunized? If you want to provide funds for the poor, at their option, to be immunized, that’s one thing. But to require all children to be immunized smacks more of the Nazism that you seem to decry.
You might be Born Conservative, but if the type of illogic you’ve already demonstrated in this thread is any indication, it didn’t stick.
If the shoe fits, wear it. Please re-read your post; talk about name calling....
I have no problem with the people that LOGICALLY discuss vaccine issues. But there are a few (the so-called Vaccine Nazis) that adamantly refuse to accept scientific evidence that disproves their point. Sure, there are vaccines that were bombs; specifically the Rotavirus vaccine of several years ago. Nothing is perfect; medications, cars, appliances. Since they are all made by humans, there are bound to be problems in at least a small percentage.
The purpose of vaccines ARE to protect the individual and TO ERADICATE DISEASE. I’m not sure if you are aware of this, but smallpox was eradicated through vaccination. Currently, Polio is on the road to becoming eradicated; at this point, it is 99% eradicated. Thus the switch in 2000 from Oral Polio Vaccine to Inactivated Polio Vaccine.
Are you against disease eradication? If not, other than vaccines, how do you propose that they eradicate diseases?
As for mandatory vaccination, there are people who choose to not receive vaccines. If it is an adult and they become infected with an organism that could have been prevented with a vaccine, then they deal with the consequences. However, if it happens to a child, and the parent chose to not get him or her vaccinated, then who is to blame?
The Amish don’t routinely receive vaccines. Maybe that’s why they still get Tetanus, Hib, etc. I’ve seen children become seriously harmed or die from vaccine-preventable disease. There’s no excuse for that....
