Australia is advocating punishment of those who disagree with the medical authorities and forcing their treatments on those who would refuse.
A prime example of the sect mentality that goes with anti vax rantings. The whole world is against them, the Government wants to silence them, etc.
"It's my body!" scream the antivax lobby. Er, no: it's your child's body that you want to expose to dangerous and unpleasant diseases, some of which - like chickenpox - remain with you for life.
Even more importantly, if we were to take the callous view that by failing to vaccinate their own children, this bunch of irresponsible, hysterical fuckwits are doing us a favour by dooming themselves to long-term extinction, they are putting others at risk. People who cannot be vaccinated for various reasons: the very young, those with immune system diseases, people undergoing chemotherapy, etc.
It's NOT "your body". It's everyone else's. If your claim the right to govern your body, you must also accept that other people have the same right to govern theirs. You do not have the right to condemn them to pain, suffering or death because of *your* selfish stupidity.
Go live alone in the desert, or get fucking vaccinated.

Andrew Wakefield is an evil, lying bastard who still makes money on the anti-MMR lies he started some 15 years ago. He is currently trying to glean publicity (and therefore gain custom via speaking fees) from the measles epidemic in Wales, a direct result of *his* fraud.
Nearly 700 cases so far, including one death. 10% of measles victims suffer lifelong sequels.
Wakefield is among the nastiest scum you'll find on the stagnant cesspit that is alt med.
There are some days when I know what my topic will be—what it must be.
We already knew the anti-vax "Too many too soon" slogan was unscientific bollocks, if only because they vastly overstate the number of vaccines actually given to infants and the strange fact the children on the normal vaccination schedule remain perfectly fit and healthy.
Now there's a study that explicitly smacks down this particular Stupid.
A preservative keeps vaccines from going bad when there is no refrigeration. Activists say it should be banned because it contains mercury, but public health officials insist it's safe.
This is the antivax loons screaming about thimerosal, which is present in minute quantities when used and is eliminated from the body in about a week, faster than the kind of pathogen the vaccines that contain it protect against...

Youth TodayVaccines That Keep the Monsters of the Past at BayYouth Today“Because signs of autism may appear around the same time children receive the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination, some parents may worry that the vaccine causes autism.
A reminder of what horrors modern vaccines protect us from. I can still recall my parents worrying about polio (we weren't vaccinated until about age 11 or 12 in those days).
Well, colour me surprised - pleasantly surprised. After two pupils came down with measles in Ozark Adventist Academy (Justthevax passim), the other (8?) unvaccinated pupils had to be sent home. After confirmation of those ...
