Your choice not to vaccinate does not trump my choice to keep my children safe
It's been a long time since I posted here, but I felt I had to share this...I'm sure many (or all) of you have heard about the measles outbreak in the US and Canada. If you are anti-vaccine or considering not vaccinating your child, please read this woman's plea. I used to keep my mouth shut on vaccines and not try to convince others of my views, but my opinion has changed. As she says in her emotional post, "You [people who choose not to vaccinate without having a medical reason] have stood on the shoulders of our collective protection for too long. From that high height, we have given you the PRIVILEGE of our protection, for free. And in return, you gave me this week. A week from hell. Wherein I don't know if my BABY will develop something that has DEATH as a potential outcome...And you would be the first to line up if you had an inkling of what the death of a child feels like. You would be crawling through the streets on your hands and knees, begging, BEGGING to get that vaccine into your precious babies because that is what I would have done, if I could, to save my daughter."
