The question of the day/week:
For those who profess to be in favor of informed choice, do you have a problem with this new law? If so, why? And how do you reconcile your objections to parents being granted the right to freely and actually CHOOSE (without having to fit some narrow criteria deemed legitimate by those who prefer to see every child “fully vaccinated”) with your stated support for “informed consent”, “parental choice”, and the “voluntary nature of vaccination”?
Should the procedure(s) ONLY be “voluntary” for those few who are willing and able to surrender their rights to a public education/social inclusion among “everyone else”? Should the exercise of “informed consent” /“parental choice” incur legislated penalties or should it be un -coerced and applicable to all? Perhaps it should only be available to those who can somehow prove their intelligence/fitness as parents/provide an acceptable rationale for their objection? If so, how should those criteria be established and determined?
Here is your chance to explain your position, if you care to and can.
