SB277 is the code for a proposed law in California whereby it is made compulsory to vaccinate your child, with the only exemption allowed being medical. No more religious objections or conscientious objections. This law is needed – particularly in the wake of the measles issue coming out of Disneyland recently.
But there are parents screaming blue murder – claiming that as long as there is a risk there should be a choice…..
THERE IS NO CHOICE!
For goodness sakes, what reasonable parent would risk the death of their child from a preventable disease? No reasonable parent would take such a risk – they would vaccinate their child without hesitation. All medical procedures carry some risk, but the pros outweigh the cons by the proverbial country mile!
The only way to eradicate these diseases is to vaccinate. Those that oppose vaccination want these diseases to stay. That is a crime against humanity that goes beyond childhood. Being generally fit does not protect from disease even as an adult. I learned that the hard way in July last year when I was hospitalised by Influenza A. Just yesterday I got my flu vaccine. I’m not stupid. I’m not going through that again. And yet there are people out there who are happy to run that risk!
It annoys me that there are so many stupid parents out there, particularly as one of the excuses given is that vaccines cause Autism. That is BS! I’m Autistic. Vaccines didn’t cause that. It’s genetic in origin. It’s a complex set of behaviours that are passed down from one generation to the next and the set needed for an Autism diagnosis is random like any other DNA set. Every human being has at least one of the behaviours listed – but you need a certain number to be on the Spectrum. That (put very simply) is the genetic connection.
I’ll be linking this on Twitter as part of my battle against those idiots who are saying No to SB277. Anyone who says no to it opposes the prevention of disease in children. That is a crime against humanity and it has to stop.
