  •  I'm so tired of the conspiracy theorists. (10+ / 0-)
    Researchers say there is evidence that clusters of unvaccinated children play a role.
    I'm not normally a big stick kind of guy but the state should be able to mandate these vaccines.  And to the vaccine conspiracy theorists?  Fuck the "nanny state" claims, it's not to protect their child, it's to protect the kids around their child who they may be killing.

    This shit shouldn't be optional, and I personally feel like courts ought to be empowered to find recalcitrant parents in contempt.  Let'em rot in a jail cell for a week or two (or however long it takes) to contemplate their fact-free fantasies.

    I'm not even sure I'd support religious exceptions because of the harm the exceptions bring to unrelated third parties.
