Well everyone knew this would come once more outbreaks happened. There's no one to thank but McCarthy and other anti vaxxers for those outbreaks, and increased laws taking away vaccine choices.

Yea listen to this clown who knows nothing. Instead educate yourself and ask why parent's are so concerned about vaccine injury and death that they will risk the illness. Be aware that most cases of measles cause no harm, and the exaggeration/ fear mongering is intentional to scare parents into complying.

Parents are willing to risk the illness and subject their children to brain inflammation (encephalitis), blindness, deafness or death? You're as crazy as McCarthy, who made that same statement. You're just being her parrot.
Before the vaccine was developed in the 1950s, around 48,000 Americans required hospitalization for measles every year and roughly 500 died. the estimate of deaths in 2011 is 158,000 deaths caused by measles. In 1529, a measles outbreak in Cuba killed two-thirds of the natives who had previously survived smallpox. Two years later, measles was responsible for the deaths of half the population of Honduras, and had ravagedMexico, Central America, and the Inca civilization. During the 1850s, measles killed a fifth of Hawaii's people. In 1875, measles killed over 40,000 Fijians, approximately one-third of the population. In the 19th century, the disease decimated the Andamanese population. In Ireland, vaccination was introduced in 1985. There were 99,903 cases that year. Within two years, the number of cases had fallen to 201. Measles is a leading cause of vaccine-preventable childhood mortality.
That's not fear mongering, those are historical facts.
