    So how can you possibly think that you should be forced to take something when it is known that there can be complications. I just do not believe people's lives should be dictated in this way.

    This already happens.

    Kim - I would think that the fact that you can't safely not vaccinate strengthens my argument, not weakens it.

    Which is worse, the potential complication or the results of the illness? When the result of the illness (death or permanent disability) is much much worse than the potential complication than yes it should be mandated (a good example IMO is polio).

    While I personally think the benefits far out way the risks, I still feel that is not a choice you can make for someone else.

    Anything that we determined to be harmful all the time...i think we typically make illegal to do. Thats why i'm saying i do have a hangup on the fact that its legally a choice, but then suing someone for doing it.

    Because people should not have the right to harm others to preserve their own safety.

    Um..... You did. You made that choice for your children without their consent.

    I agree with the others that said I think it is okay to do this but not really feasible.

    To not vax, without medical reasons, is reckless to society.

    But in refusing to vax one is making that choice for someone else. The baby who could die from the illness they are exposed to from the unvaxed child. If it was just about the individual that would be one thing, but it isn't. This is a global issue.

    I see that as our sort of uneasy truce between the rights of the individual and the good of the many. You have the right to make the choice....but if your choice results in harming someone else then you have to own that and be responsible for it. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't fight it if we just removed the choice and made vaccines mandated for everyone who could get them safely, but if people want to keep the choice then I think that the trade off is that they be responsible for the outcome of that choice.
