This news story has already been up for over a week and I kept meaning to post this. This is an extreme example of the rhetoric the anti-vaccine movement, what exactly does it mean even if she is one child not vaccinated? Well just add on the others who aren't being vaccinated in this country.

I made a thread a couple of years back about the anti-vaccine movement, and it got quite a few good replies, of which you can view here.
I don't even know where to start but maybe you can fellow readers, I believe we take things for granted such as our health all the time. But we musn't, diseases that were once thought eradicated, like Measles, are now coming back. And just like that band you never liked from so many years ago, they're going to rock you.. again.
ADISC users, what do you think of this issue that's becoming more and more important in society?
Here are a few articles that may be of further consideration:
