Your post was well written and I understand the difficulty of deciding what to do when comparing the vaccinated argument versus the non-vaccinated argument. I remember being in your shoes when my son was born until one day something just clicked for me and I decided to not do any vaccines at all. That may happen for you one day too where you'll just "find" the answer within your heart. After my research (mostly with the book by Dr. Sears and Dr. Tenpenny), I decided the risks of the vaccines heavily outweight the benefits. Both those books lay out the facts with data behind it.
The vaccinated argument, in my opinion, is not strong at all as you mentioned. Their "studies" may show that vaccines have helped and cause no harm, but that of course is not the truth. Their numbers are skewed. Some diseases were well on the decline and were dying out even before vaccines were ever introduced. Also, with their so-called "studies" showing there were little to no health issues after giving a vaccine...well...I just want to laugh in their face on that one. They have not done any real comparable studies at all. All of the studies have been conducted with provaccine mentality.
Regarding the natural aspect of it, the chemicals and adjuvants in vaccines are poisonous to the body, especially tiny little babies. I understand your thought of human innovation but do we really need to inject all of this awful crap over and over again into our children to fight off diseases such as chicken pox????? It's not the unnatural part of vaccines that bothers me; it's the unsafe part of vaccines that's the problem. There is no proof out there indicating that they are safe. Vaccines are a money maker. It all starts to make sense now why the CDC wants to force so many vaccines on everyone and even start to make up new ones such as the H1N1. Soon, there will be a vaccine for a sore throat!
Natural immunity is what was intended for us which is why we have an immune system to begin with. My belief is that vaccines weaken the immune systems by forcing the viruses (among other crap) upon our bodies when there is a small chance of contracting the virus in the first place. Why inject ourselves with viruses and have our bodies going through hell to fight the infection when we may never get the disease to begin with?? It is insane how you take a baby to the doctor's for the first time when they are 2 months old and there comes 5 needles their way. It's disturbing that the kids don't even have a chance to develop naturally on their own without medical intervention knocking them down over and over again. It seems like medical abuse to me. Let the kids at least grow a bit before you jab them left and right.
The other disturbing fact among all of this are the recalls on vaccines. I mentioned this in another post. There are too many times where a vaccine is recalled after it has been distributed to thousands/millions. Big pharma is basically like "Oops, sorry, that vaccine is contaminated so we have to take it back." Well, you can't take that back from the thousands/millions that have already gotten that vaccine. The pharameutical companies are protected from liability of damages from vaccines. That shoud tell us something right there. The latest recall is on the rotovirus vaccine where it was contaminated with pig virus which can be detrimental to humans, yet, the FDA says, "It's fine." To me, that's proof enough that I don't want my son getting any of that.
