Vaccinations

Should parents have a choice on whether or not to vaccinate their kids? Should parents have a choice on whether or not to feed their kids? Should parents have a right to right to decide whether or not to let their kids out of the basement?

Once you decide to take an infant home from the hospital, you have an obligation to provide for that child's needs. You have to provide them with food, shelter, and see to it that they receive medical care. If you can't or won't do this, put the child up for adoption. Nothing I've said in this paragraph should be controversial. If there are kids in your house right now, make sure they are vaccinated or send them home.

To be sure, kids have an amazing ability to trigger irrational emotions in their parents. This can lead to parents making unfortunate decisions that make the news. If your emotions or beliefs are keeping you from providing adequate medical care for your kids, please put them up for adoption.

Should parents have a choice on whether or not to vaccinate their kids? Parents have an obligation to protect their children from communicable diseases. One way to do this is to vaccinate your kids. Another way is to take your kids to a GMO-free, gluten-free utopia in the middle of nowhere. I'm open to hearing other suggestions in the comments section.

This current discussion regarding vaccinations is an issue that is a redirection by the 'popular press' for the actual reason why there most likely is an increase of measles. That being that in recent weeks and months, numerous young persons from south of the border have been crossing into the U.S. illegally. This exemplifies the numerous constitutional issues this administration is violating.
