The state of Maine has just passed a law that requires children to be vaccinated. All exemptions have been removed.
Is this not an act of the state that controls a person's body and demands they introduce a chemical element into it?
We have abortion laws that say women does not have to have a baby in their body because it is their body. This law says children (and some adults when their job requires it) must have a chemical introduced into their body that they don't want.
Why is it okay for the state to force people to have vaccinations, but they can't force a woman to have a baby?
Because abortions cannot harm the entire human population. A single person not being vaccinated can be the environment the virus needs to mutate and affect everyone else. Simple really. Possible biological weapons such as those not vaccinated need to be isolated.
Abortions kill millions every year. Measles and chicken pox do not. Abortion certainly does harm the entire population... and an entire unborn population as well. Scientists, doctors, teachers, and other brilliant minds are never allowed to be.
Poverty and the foster care system does that too. There's a lot that can be said about what could be. But mutations of viruses are a real thing and that will be.
The viruses that will kill large numbers will be biological warfare, for which, there is and never will be a vaccine.
Biological warfare is when a group develop a virus and use it against others. Smallpox was not biological warfare. Polio was not biological warfare, and so the list goes on.
I was a child when the cases of Polio hit the thousands a from botched vaccine...
In April 1955 more than 200 000 children in five Western and mid-Western USA states received a polio vaccine in which the process of inactivating the live virus proved to be defective. Within days there were reports of paralysis and within a month the first mass vaccination programme against polio had to be abandoned. Subsequent investigations revealed that the vaccine, manufactured by the California-based family firm of Cutter Laboratories, had caused 40 000 cases of polio, leaving 200 children with varying degrees of paralysis and killing 10.
So you can imagine the damage a virus can do if it mutates and there is no ready vaccine.
And what if the vaccine is botched? You take it first and if you don't get sick in a year ... then we'll talk about it.
I don't want to be forced to take a vaccine... especially a new one
I had all the diseases instead ... and I am immune forever
Not if someone near you has not nor was vaccinated and allows the virus to grow and mutate in him or her. I find it interesting that you have had smallpox.
I am talking childhood diseases of measles, mumps, chicken pox as I clearly stated... don't try to bait me with things I didn't say.
Lol. Perhaps you should volunteer to help with the Ebola outbreak
The whole antivax thing started with one UK doctor who falsified the results of an MMR study for financial gain. And now we have people who imagine they are superhuman.
I am talking about childhood diseases of measles, chicken pox and mumps. Please don't try to create something different.
I know several people who believe that powerful institutions are trying to poison or mentally disable them, through vaccination, fluoridation etc etc.
These are gentle souls who have mixed their private fears with public issues and I am not unkind to them.
It is quite a different thing, though. when someone actively promotes ideas that are dangerous to community health.
Measles can kill and often causes disability (deafness, paralysis etc) in later life. It is so easy to prevent with vaccination that is completely indefensible to promote avoidance.
And lets face it, it is the children of the deluded who suffer most.
Tens of thousands of American Indians died of smallpox, and it is estimated that the 20th century saw 300-500 million deaths worldwide from it. Not a war virus, just a common disease that we can vaccinate for.
On the other hand not a single person has died from a legal, correctly done, abortion in this country (can't speak for other countries). A small percentage of women, particularly those that used "back alley" abortions have died of complications and even botched surgeries, but as a percentage of the people it is very small.
Indian tribes were purposely infected with smallpox...
And women have died from abortions... By the way, the purpose of the article isn't anti abortion... abortion is just an example of being able to say "I Don't Want this in my Body"
Also...many Indians died when they were first vaccinated... What works for one race may not work for another in the same way. I am Mi'kmaq and I know the experiences of my people.
Perhaps I misunderstood - I took your statement that "The viruses that will kill large numbers will be biological warfare, for which, there is and never will be a vaccine." to refer to diseases expressly designed as a weapon of war, and smallpox was never that even if it WAS used as a weapon.
As others have commented - it is fine to deny a vaccination to a child (although the specter of involuntary manslaughter or some such might be appropriate), but that child must not then be allowed to mingle with the population, for the risk to those that cannot take the vaccination is too great. As we see happening already in this country as idiots decide that it all causes autism or contains mercury.
I just read that the CDC acknowledges that people who have the measles have a lifetime immunity and will never have other effects, however, those who have the vaccine will have to continue to require boosters for the rest of their lives. All my children had measles, chicken pox, and mumps one summer (wasn't planned that way), I had them all as well. I remember one year nearly the whole school had chicken pox... we all had fun and a calamine lotion party. No one died.
Measles can and often does re-activate in adults to become shingles. My grandmother had shingles in her later years - absolutely miserable for years from it. And people DO die from measles - before the vaccine about 450 people died each year from measles, just in the US.
Chicken pox, though - I and all my siblings had it. When a kid came down with it parents would bring their kids over to get exposed and get it over.
We have much more to fear from other deadly diseases if we stop vaccinations.
A single unvaccinated person is a threat to the health of an entire community, as Lobobrandon said, plus a tremendous financial cost. A single abortion is not.
A first and second trimester abortion kills an underdeveloped fetus. It does not kill a living and fully developed human being.
By the way, the U.S. abortion rate is 600,000 per year (not millions) with 91 percent performed in the first trimester.

I didn't specify in the United States only.
On average, 56 million abortions occurred worldwide each year in 2010–2014. This is an increase from 50 million annually in 1990–1994, resulting primarily from population growth. Each year, globally, there were 35 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 in 2010–2014, down slightly from 40 per 1,000 in 1990–1994.
This is according to the World Health Organization

what is your opinion? Is it a conspiracy or a grace to humanity? Has it halted our natural evolution to resistance to disease?

What's your opinion on vaccinations?We've heard the conspiracies, we have heard them bunked, we've heard them supported. To vaccinate or not to vaccinate?
