If anyone is exposed to Daniel Burton they should be immediately immunized. If not, spontaneous beard and hairy man chest may occur.

As pointed out in previous posts.

If you have to get permission to exercise your rights, how can you call them rights?

Parents have the responsibility for their children, hence they have rights that are inalienable and un-a-lienable {most think the word 'unalienable' comes from the root word 'alien', but actually has the word 'lien' at its root}. If you are content giving dictatorial powers to the government for yourself and your family, that's fine, but please leave me and mine to live in freedom from your fear imposed tyranny.

I've never denied the benefit of immunizations, I'll leave that to others. What I object to is the progressive abdication of our rights and authority as individuals to this, or any, government.

As we reduce the individual, we reduce ourselves collectively, but this is a lesson no longer taught in our homes and schools. There are other lessons no longer taught as well, such as the fact that the ultimate rebel is the thinker, not the emoter, let alone the blind follower.

No,bcoz ther parents shld b able to decide.I believe that forcing immunizations on children is forcing them to have drugs shot nto ther little veins.dcs told me that if I did not get my children immunized,they wld b taken away from me n placed n another home.i think that wen it comes to children,ther parents beliefs shld vry well b considered,even wen they want ther children to b immunized bcoz not everyone feels the same about this issue.

Our peditrcian is against it says that they have exstream levels of mercy in them & disscussed with us how ridiculous it is that the hospitals give a 2 day old infant a shot for hep. Before even leaving the hospital. Idk my children are up to date. But when a doctor tells you this it really makes you wonder if the good out weighs the bad. I do however belive it is the parents personal decision & should not be something for the world to make. Everyday the goverment is trying to take away more & more of the ppls right to make their own choice on what they feel is best. It is your child & I like to think the parents will make the best choice for their child. It is no one elses buissness.
