Question for Pro-Lifers
110
Thu, 02-26-2009 - 2:05pm

I'd like to know how pro-lifers feel about vaccinations. Which of you vaccinate? Which of you don't? Why or why not?

I'm asking here instead of the Vaccine Debate Board because of the number of people here I'm certain are pro-life and I'm looking for some answers and correlations.

Thanks

"I wonder if vegans and vegetarians have a problem with vaccines. Using your rationale, they should have no problem with them."

First, I think you'd have to drop the attitude that everyone who ascribes to a particular belief or ideology believes exactly the same thing at all times. Clearly there is lots of variance between PL and PC and within those categories as well.

Second, have you ever heard of Freegans?

I'm vegetarian. I vaccinate even though I am profoundly uncomfortable with some of the ingredients because I think that the benefits to my children's health and the public good are worth it.

The veg*ans i know are fairly evenly divided on this issue really.

Some of our kids are vegetarians, but they haven't mentioned any issues they

I think it's wonderful that organ donation has benefited your children! I wish everyone would be an od!

I don't understand how the choice of the parent to abort is the same as the choice of the parent to donate organs.

I absolutely understand that there are variations in thinking. I do not understand the hypocrisy in certain ways of thinking. I also do not understand why you felt the need to be rude.

This is certainly a thought that had occurred to me. I know that not all vegetarians/vegans make that choice for ethical reasons. I wonder if the cases of antivaccination is higher in the ones who are vegans for ethical reasons.

Isn't that the difference between vegan and vegetarian? Vegans are against the testing on animals and other things too? I could be wrong.

To you and kjdragonfly~

I must admit that I am in awe that you would have such big problems with vaccines and still choose to use them. Can I ask what ingredients it is that you are "profoundly uncomfortable with"? Is it just that or do your stances on abortion or vegetarianism affect your discomfort? I just wonder if the only people who don't vaccinate are the ones who have done the research and made a scientific decision and the ones who opt out based on religious reasons or if there are those out there who are basing their views on it from completely different things. (and what those things are)
