What if there were a new class of wonder drugs for children that prevented some of the worst diseases in history with very limited side effects...would you take them?

Of course they didn't mention side effects. It was about intentionally not vaccinating due to those 'disproven fears', and it showed the consequences of that choice forced upon others.

Nice con about vaccine court and law suits. There has not been one case which showed vaccines caused autism.

Again, the article is about disproven fears. Everyone already knows about side effects, but anti vaxxers keep boasting about them as if it's something no one ever knew about.

If everyone opted out of Gardasil, then explain as of February 2009, 40 million doses of Gardasil had been distributed worldwide?? How can 40 million be any where near opting out? That vaccine however has nothing to do with this topic, and not a required vaccine for public schools. Parents have the right to opt out of that vaccine, or any with an exemption waiver.

Interestingly, HPV being one of the most frequently occurring sexually transmitted diseases in Canada.

Anti vaxxers love to deny and create their own facts. Sorry, the misinfo of less vaccination is false, not only with the Gardasil vaccine, but also with the measles vaccine aka MMR. Fact also is even mentioning Gardasil is off topic and the same scare tactics anti vaxxers claim of pharma! But since Gardasil was brought up, 70 percent (3:4) of sexually active Canadian men and women will have a sexually transmitted HPV infection at some point in their lives.

From ABC news, trusted news;

A government report released Tuesday raises new questions about the safety of the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil. The vaccine has been linked to 32 unconfirmed deaths and shows higher incidences of fainting and blood clots than other vaccines.

Vaccine pusher debunked again. His agneda here is to push the vaccines in your bloodstream.

One, Gardasil doesn't cause autism, and it is totally optional on the parents part.
Two, your reference is 3 years old and the same year as this article, February 2009, 40 million doses of Gardasil had been distributed worldwide.

You have not debunked a thing. You must had missed the word "unconfirmed" in the article!

No one has ever said contracting a childhood disease is fatel in every case. That's anti vaxxer drama. Not everyone died, either. Many survived but with life long complications from the disease they contracted.
