Paul offit makes vaccines and his professional life is about pushing them. Credibility zero

Just lie to them like you have for decades. Why change now. Throw in some misinfo and fear based maketing too. Tell them their child is as good as dead without vaccines (snicker) and they will line up like cattle.

I had a parent tell me that they were counting on herd immunity to protect THEIR child. They did not want THEIR child to have any vaccinations, but they expected everyone else's kids to be vaccinated to protect THEIR child.

This is not a case of a kid that is not eligible to be vaccinated for an extenuating health concern, this is just pure unadulterated selfishness.

How does someone respond to such an admission?

By giving them credit for protecting their child from harm. It may not be the brightest statement but its understandable.

ricDUH99 AKA the next Steven Hogkins from jolly old England has little to ad. He and the other pro-vacs have been hiding since Dr William Thompson of the CDC confessed to covering up safety studies showing MERCK'S MMR caused a 340% increase in autism. Case closed on what has caused the world wide epidemic

How do you convince parents to vaccinate where 100000 of parents have documented evidence showing how their kids regressed into autism and got permanently neurologically damaged shory after vaccination. The only wY is to lie and lie and lie lime offit for profit

If a terrible disease such as polio was around today and rampant these same people who refuse to vaccinate their kids would be clamoring and bitching to the government demanding a vaccine. Do the sane thing and vaccinate your damn kids or take them and yourself out of the country. People today just do not have any common sense.

No DR DUH people have plenty of sense. They are frightened of what is going on with vaccines and should be. They would have no issue with anything that doesn't maim and kill, but vaccines do both. How sane is it to risk your child either way?

Should parents who, on the basis if paranoid delusional belief, refuse to have their children vaccinated to protect them from major diseases be held legally responsible for negligence?

maybe. or shunned from society, and not allowed to have their kids in public places, thus forcing them to pay for private schooling.

I can imagine this being tried in a court of law. I believe that there is a precedent establishing culpability of practitioners of Christian Science depriving their child life-saving treatment for an existing medical problem based on conviction that it would somehow interfere with their god's will. I wonder if the precedent would extend to apply to refusing children's vaccinations.

if they used the first amendment defence, they would have to show themselves to be members of some recognised religion that practices such faith...
