I was thinking this morning, and I don't want to turn this into a bash about vaxxers, but would like to discuss the whole vax your kids to protect mine thinking. Now, I don't believe in doing things for "the greater good" but I do believe in loving my neighbor, so if I knew my kids were sick with something we would not go out.
But what responsibility do those parents who *demand* we vax our kids in order to protect theirs have in protecting their children's health above and beyond vaxxes *before* they ask us to vax our children? I don't believe any parent has the right to demand that I vax my child for any reason, but let's just assume that is a reasonable request, would it also be reasonable to request that they ensure their children are breastfed exclusively for 6 months and nursed full-term, attend car seat safety classes and rear-face their children for as long as weight/height limits allow, eat a primarily whole-foods diet, get plenty of sunshine, etc... In other words, why are they given a free pass to demand that my children be vaxxed for their children's well being but other measures to keep their children safe and healthy don't really seem to be a priority.
