    I would say your point is well taken except that when you don't immunize your child, you put others at risk such as kids that aren't eligible for immunization, kids in other countries where the vaccination isn't available, and of course kids with stupid parents.

    Stupidity seems to be the real First World disease.

    You are talking to someone who ignores the hundreds of scientific (and repeatable) studies that show the benefits of vaccines FAR outweigh the risks. Don't expect those gears to work.....

    People are at risk whenever they go out into public for things far worse than mumps for which we don't vaccinate/don't have a vax. People owe no duty to protect other people's kids from getting sick, and it is doubtful some kid in Sri Lanka is going to get measles because a Christian Scientist/granola eater in Minneapolis decided not to give their child the MMR vax.

    I know, it boggles the mind.

    Get the flu, and risk death and the spread of the virus to others who might die..

    Or get the shot, and skip severe illness, and don't spread it at all.

    Hmmmmmm....

    Kids in Sri Lanka already die from mumps in droves.

    Nobody is arguing that people in the US getting mumps are going to infect people in Sri Lanka (who already are getting the mumps). You're presenting a completely false dilemma, as you have been all through the thread.

    The DANGER with not vaccinating isn't that society will fall...society is going to fall ultimately anyway.

    It's that it's fucking RETARDED to reject a health policy that so painlessly and effectively has halted serious, deadly diseases in their tracks.

    It's like saying "Well when I wash my hands I don't get shit in my mouth and contract ecoli...so obviously, I don't need to wash my hands! After all, I haven't been sick!"

    But of course I know why people want to stop vaccinations.

    It is because ultimately, they want people to die, and the population to decrease. It's that simple.
