Cynthia , I am sorry , if my words came across a little harsh , but I condemn ANY form of child abuse and deliberately exposing my helpless baby to a potentially debilitating or even fatal disease goes against my firm belief , that a child has the same right to be treated respectfully and with dignity .
So , if anyone gets offended by it , I apologize !
You pre-emptively expose your children to vaccines, which are potentially debilitating and even fatal in the hopes that they won't have to deal with a surprise case of chicken pox at a time when they are less able to deal with it, or when it would be less convenient. Those are pretty much the same reasons for participating in a cp-party. While you and the cp-party participants obviously disagree about the risk/benefit assessment of the vaccine -vs- the real thing, you are all making your decisions based on what you believe to be the best interest of your children. Unfortunately, if it ever becomes truly clear which strategy really is better, it won't be for a very long time.
