So by you saying that if I chose not to vax then my kids shouldn't be allowed in public or that I am endangering them by not doing it, then you are also saying that my religious beliefs should be ignored or looked down on with shame? correct?
YOUR religious beliefs should only effect YOUR health and welfare, not the health and welfare of your children.

You do not own your children. They are US citizens and have the right to be protected from dangerous religious practices being forced upon them.

The courts have been EXCEEDINGLY clear on this. Denying your child medical care because of your personal religious beliefs in criminal behavior.

She's not complaining about sucrose. She is listing the ingredients in the vaccine. Sheesh.
Ignorance does not make vaccines unsafe...they are unavoidably unsafe according to a recent vaccine court ruling. They are unsafe in and of themselves, despite a person's knowledge about their ingredients and such.
What you are talking about is the fact that virtually every product (vaccines, medicine, food, etc) is going to have some percentage of the population which is allergic to some part of it.

The percentage of people who are allergic to a given vaccine is exceedingly small. If we have knowledge of a persons allergy ahead of time, they can get an exemption.

However, we do not exempt 20% of the public from vaccination because .01% of the public is allergic.

As for "safety", you need to compare outcomes.

A certain number of people have their collarbones broken by their seatbelts in car accidents each year.

Does that mean we should remove seatbelts?

The risk to your children by not vaccinating them is far worse and far more likely than your risk for vaccinating them.

AIDS is a syndrome caused by the damage to the T-cells which in turn is caused by HIV.
So, you can't catch AIDS. Just like you can't catch a soar throat, but you can catch the virus which causes the soar throat.
HIV is transmitted a number of ways, one of them being sexuality. In the 80s it was rampant in the gay community in the US. It was also rampant among people who shared needles. Obviously, there is some overlap between those two groups.

This is, and has been, common knowledge for 20+ years.

You shouldn't need a pamphlet, this disease has gotten a TON of press. If you were only mildly paying attention you would know this.

It is life itself that is the true owner of the children.
It is the parents right and responsibility to protect and care for them.
It appears you believe you have the right, as you believe does the government to dictate and take ownership without the real effort that it takes to feed,clothe and care for the child till they are old enough to take care or themseves.
When you fully support all the children, then perhaps we can discuss other options.

I'll make this simple for you.

Recently, a couple followed their religious beliefs and "prayed" for their child to be cured of a chronic ear infection which subsequently led to his death.

Had this child received a normal course of antibiotics, he would be alive and well.

This was the THIRD child these parents have sacrificed in this way.

Is it their right to deny these children medical attention, knowing that it will lead to the child's preventable death?
-or-
Is it the duty of the rest of the citizens to step in and protect a fellow citizen from unjust, unsafe and unfair practices which are being forced upon them by this couple?
