This article really ticked me off, especially this line:

"But vaccine advocates worry that parents do not understand the risks. "We can respect some choices, such as smoking," said Lynn Frank, chief of public health services in Montgomery County, Maryland. "But I cannot really respect choices that will lead to the death of a child."

Huh? Oh, ok, second hand smoke doesn't harm children. Got it.

In the Netherlands, 3,000 cases of measles and three deaths were reported in 2000 after a small group of children at one school were not vaccinated for religious reasons and many became infected.
If vaccination provides protection and the non-vaxed group was "small", then how did it result in 3,000 cases?:

"I live in Seattle -- we have a lot of that going on,"..."They are living an alternative lifestyle."
I've never come so close to feeling like a homosexual in San Francisco, back in the 80's, being blamed for AIDS.:
