In a state that already has a teeny tiny exemption rate (http://www.cdc.gov/mmWr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6433a2.htm), the forced vaxxers are pushing forward again trying to remove religious exemptions. ...

I'm not accusing you of nefarious motives, Tea. I'm just wondering how far from our mission we're straying every time a thread pops us reporting on a cat fight.

Well, you're framing the issue around "which" vaccines when it largely comes down to which and when.
