I am staunchly opposed to mandatory vaccination. Staunchly.
I am also beyond disgusted that anyone would compare mandatory vaccination to rape. In that case, I guess forcing my child to sit through a dental exam would be analogous to rape. Or forcing him to take his puffer when he's having an asthma attack (since I've had to hold him down for that). Or that time he was really sick and needed an ultrasound.
If you are so (gently, mama) opposed to mandatory vaccination and its elements, please do utilize your powers of reason to form logical arguments about it without resorting to offensive hyperbole. Vaccinations are NOT as invasive as rape - no matter how afraid of them, or opposed to them, you might be. Suggesting otherwise just shows how your dogma overshadows your ability to think critically...not to mention how insensitive it is. Holy rainbows.
