In Montana, approximately 35% of the parents have not vaccinated their children. Are they all ignorant or making informed decisions?

The recent “measles outbreak” at Disney is noteworthy, because of those infected some were vaccinated for measles. Yet, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) said, “90% of the people close to that [infected] person who are not immune will also become infected.” So, what percentage of those vaccinated will be infected? Curiously, CDC states nothing about this. Too, look at China. Vaccinations are mandatory there; yet, there is a measles outbreak. If 99.99% of the population is vaccinated, why and how the outbreak?

Still, some are using the Disney story to push for mandatory vaccinations in America. Politicians like Rand Paul, however, have not followed suit. Paul stated that parents must have a choice in this decision. Of course. What we put in our bodies concerns one of the most basic concepts of liberty in human history. Free people should not relinquish this right.

It is hard enough for parents in Montana to get unvaccinated children in public schools (even though our constitution guarantees every child an education) and even get pediatric services (even though the premise behind Obamacare is that everyone is entitled to healthcare). If vaccinations become mandatory, people who do not vaccinate will be disparaged by government to a much greater degree.
