Just read this article and it made me furious....they are trying to take our rights away. Read the other day that in WA you now need a doctor's note to exempt your kids from vaccines.  It's not going to stop in WA.  http://www.aafp.org/online/en/home/publications/news/news-now/health-of-the-public/20110504pidsvaccstmt.html

Yes, this is what I mean when I say we are being policed and controlled, being left with little to no human rights and it's downright scary.  My state is currently trying to pass two very Unconstitutional bills, one regarding religious exemptions, tightening it up, and in fact, allows for the opportunity to challenge all parents who have a religious exemption, attempting to discriminate against the religious principles of the parents.  The reason is because they feel parents are abusing this right. All we have in my state are medical and religious exemptions  These types of bills, if passed, will set the precedence for other states to follow. My state currently is one of the states with the most mandates (mandating flu vaccine for school entry) and also a state with one of the highest autism rates. (I actually think we still have the highest rate currently.) The parents are furious in this state and are fighting this bill.

 

WA already passed that law previously. I think it's only going to get harder and harder to obtain an exemption anymore. We will ultimately be left with no choices.  I'm actually very sick of all that they are trying to do in this country. It's quite sad.

 

ETA:

 

This below is the absolute WORST comparison I have ever heard, comparing personal beliefs regarding vaccinations to riding in car seats? Unbelievable what comparisons they try to dig up in their defense.

 

As the PIDS statement observes, however, states do not allow religious or personal belief exemptions in other instances meant to safeguard children's health, such as requiring them to ride in car seats until they reach a certain age and weight threshold. "In this context, it is wrong to allow parents to exempt their children from required immunizations based on their personal beliefs," says the statement.
