Of course vaccines should be required. Even on the very small chance it could case autism (all reputable studies show it doesn't) a very small percentage of children with autism is still better than a higher percentage of them running around transmitting polio, mumps, hepatitis, and all of the other horrible diseases that can be vaccinated against. Humans were much worse off 100 years ago when they weren't being vaccinated and we have all but eliminated many diseases in this country through vaccination so it should be pretty obvious what to do. The fact that so many people here argue against them makes me glad I moved from this backwards, redneck infested, shit hole of a state.

You two really have a skewed moral compass, huh? It's all fine and good to have your own opinions on things but the both of you honestly believe the vitriol that spews from your fingertips here.

Birth control mandated? That actually sounds great, in theory. So did communism. But we need only look to history to find an example of why mans corruptive nature makes a system like this not work. It was called The Third Reich.

But no, you're right. Both of you are of such higher intelligence that we should just cull DNA from you for future citizens.

That's all you two wanted, right? Your egos stroke? Hope you enjoyed the placating.

Immunizations should be mandated for everyone, children and adults. The govt is constantly conducting research to keep us healthy and at our best so who are we to say no? They are in power for a reason, they know whats best!

Oh sure some will bring up the Tuskegee Syphilis test conducted from 1932 to 1972 where the feds injected poor black farmers in AL with syphilis, telling them it was a cure for bad blood. Apparently the feds wanted to study the affects of untreated syphilis. I dont see this as a bad thing. The knowledge they gained from this experiment is helping everyone today. Or people will bring up when the feds injected Puerto Ricans with caner cells. Again, its all well documented but was done with the noblest of intentions. To help mankind.

So people attempting to scare you by mentioning these or other experiments are just fear mongers. I trust my govt to have my familys best interests in mind when they do something and i will not try to stop them.

No, they should not be required and I'll explain why. Today, we are battling insurance companies and big pharmaceuticals; they do not want you to be healthy, since you being sick makes them BILLIONS of dollars a YEAR. Vaccinations are and have been talked about during overpopulation conferences, which tells me that someone wants to lower the population of the WORLD. Many doctors don't themselves vaccinate or their children, politicians and the wealthy elite DO NOT vaccinate their families. There are many credible websites that educate and deter from using these incredibly dangerous shots. You can elect to not have them, JUST SAY NO!
