I have been reading here that it seems people think the religious exemption is "all or nothing". This makes no sense to me. I know that the wording of each state's laws is different but still how can they legally say that you can not get ANY vaccines because you have a religious exemption? I mean what if your religious or beliefs is not apposed to vaccination in general but vaccine ingredients? Or how they are MADE? Then the state again would be dictating that you couldn't get vaccines when your religious only prevents you from getting certain ones.. I don't think legally this would really stand..
For example. I do not believe in abortion, it goes against my religion and any vaccine that was made from fetal cell lines, MMR , Chicken Pox, polio and Hep A all of those would go against my religious and moral beliefs. But I am fine with HIB and DTap and some of the others because they aren't made in that way. So how can they say I can not get ANY, leaving my child susceptible to other diseases, when my religion only prohibits me from getting certain vaccines? I really don't understand where everyone is getting this All or nothing thing, I have not read it in any of the laws at all.
Also is it truly legal that your Dr can fire you for not getting vaccines? especially if you are taking a religious exemption? Doesn't that mean he is discriminating care based on a patients religious beliefs?
