It is abusive to deliberately allow or force your children (ie. Pox Parties) to acquire a potentially deadly disease.

It indicates no such thing!! People in the old days before many of the vaccines were available died far more often and at far younger ages than they do today. Some of the newer vaccines, such as Hib and Prevnar, prevent very serious diseases that we as parents of young children worried about and now we don't need to for the most part. The reason there are more vaccines now is that we are able to prevent more diseases now. I read a very good explanation of why it is not a problem that children receive more vaccines now than in the good old disease-ridden days, by a well known pediatrician. He said that a healthy infant's immune system can handle not only the ones they get but could handle many more. Such is the wonder of the healthy immune system. We truly are wonderfully made and vaccines help keep us wonderfully healthy.

My youngest daughter had a fairly common reaction to her second pertussis immunization, namely a high fever and high pitched cry. My pediatrician was well aware that this could happen and she did not get another one. The drug companies have since altered the pertussis vaccine to make such reactions much rarer. It is certainly the pediatrician's job to know about those infrequent but potentially harmful reactions and REACT accordingly. If my daughter had received a third pertussis vaccination she might have suffered brain damage. But these are not common occurrences and can never justify a decline in vaccination rates. The diseases are far, far more dangerous than the vaccines.

He doesn't belong to you!! You are his parent, not his owner. He's an independent soul with the right to be protected from disease and from parents who are imbeciles.

Children are not dying or spending the rest of their lives with bad side effects from vaccines. They do die and have bad side effects overwhelmingly more often from the DISEASES we vaccinate AGAINST than the one in millions of children who have an adverse reaction to a vaccine, most often temporary and incredibly rare.

For the ten thousandth time, the vaccine is not 100% effective!! But the more solid the vaccination rates, the less likely those for whom the vaccine isn't effective will contract it. And it follows then that the infants and others who cannot be vaccinated yet or ever will be less at risk.

Yes, by all means do not contaminate your specialness with any of the poisons put forth by the "big pharma" monsters. They are out to kill you and your children. It must be a fluke that the cure rate for Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in children is now 95%, when that disease was 100% fatal. Hope your kids never get it, or any of the myriad illnesses and conditions Big Pharma has relieved and prevented all these decades.

Well doesn't that suck for your child. If we all got our vaccines like good children, immune suppressed kids could have more fun!

We don't know what causes autism, but we DO know what doesn't. Studied to the Nth degree, there is no causal relationship between vaccines and autism. The prevailing thought at the moment is that children are born with it and it simply doesn't manifest until 18 months-2 1/2 years. I have an autistic grandson but in his case we know why he became autistic: he has TSC and epilepsy. We do NOT know why TSC and epilepsy both result in autism in about 50% of affected children. We DO know they are not autistic because they were vaccinated against some horrific diseases.

And one is too many, from a preventable-most-of-the-time disease.
