Parents Protest For Kids’ Right To Suffer From Preventable Illness

Hundreds of anti-vaxxers descended on Washington’s capital amid the state’s worst measles outbreak in decades.


By Sebastian Murdock


Hundreds of conspiracy theorists in Washington state gathered Friday to protest against vaccinating kids.


Approximately 700 people gathered for a public hearing in Olympia to oppose a bill that would put more requirements on families attempting to back out of mandatory vaccinations for children, The Washington Post reported. The bill would specifically make it harder to opt school-age children out of getting vaccine shots for mumps, rubella and measles.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Paul Harris, comes amid the state’s worst measles outbreak in decades. At least 49 cases have been confirmed in Clark County, leading Gov. Jay Inslee (D) to issue a state of emergency.

The cases are primarily in children ages 1 to 10, most of whom were unvaccinated.

That hasn’t stopped parents like Monique Murray from fighting against treating preventable illnesses. ......................................



Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism


https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/autism.html

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that is caused by differences in how the brain functions. People with ASD may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in different ways. Recent estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network found that about 1 in 59 children have been identified with ASD in communities across the United States. CDC is committed to providing essential data on ASD, searching for causes of and factors that increase the risk for ASD, and developing resources that help identify children with ASD as early as possible.
There is no link between vaccines and autism
.

Some people have had concerns that ASD might be linked to the vaccines children receive, but studies have shown that there is no link between receiving vaccines and developing ASD. In 2011, an Institute of Medicine (IOM) reportExternal on eight vaccines given to children and adults found that with rare exceptions, these vaccines are very safe.

A 2013 CDC study [PDF – 204 KB]External added to the research showing that vaccines do not cause ASD. The study looked at the number of antigens (substances in vaccines that cause the body’s immune system to produce disease-fighting antibodies) from vaccines during the first two years of life. The results showed that the total amount of antigen from vaccines received was the same between children with ASD and those that did not have ASD.

Vaccine ingredients do not cause autism.

One vaccine ingredient that has been studied specifically is thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative used to prevent contamination of multidose vials of vaccines. Research shows that thimerosal does not cause ASD. In fact, a 2004 scientific reviewExternal by the IOM concluded that “the evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal–containing vaccines and autism.” Since 2003, there have been nine CDC-funded or conducted studies Cdc-pdf[PDF – 357 KB] that have found no link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and ASD, as well as no link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and ASD in children............................

1. Can we deport these people?

It's called mandatory FOR A REASON...no, you can't not do it.
Oh wait, rules, standards, norms and Laws are for dumb libtards, and so obviously cannot apply to those who think they're smarter than the professionals at the CDC, because they watched a YouTube video at the Holiday Inn they stayed at.

Not vaccinating your kid against a deadly and preventable disease should be considered neglect, at a minimum.

2. Also from the CDC...

"Before the measles vaccination program started in 1963, about 3 to 4 million people got measles each year in the United States. Of those people, 400 to 500 died, 48,000 were hospitalized, and 4,000 developed encephalitis (brain swelling) from measles."


https://www.cdc.gov/measles/about/history.html


and from Vox

Measles is so contagious that an infected person can cough in a room, leave, and hours later, if you’re unvaccinated, you could catch the virus from the droplets in the air that person left behind.

3. Were the protesters vaccinated?

If they were vaccinated as children, then they don't have a lot of credibility? I just don't understand some people.

Idiots.
