If you want your children to be immunized that is fine and I don't think anyone should pass a law stopping you from doing so. Why can't that same curtsey be extended the other direction. If someone doesn't want their children to be immunized why should they be forced to immunize them or jump through unreasonable hoops? That is just stripping us of another one of our freedoms.
If your child is immunized what do you have to worry about? They are immunized, right? If there is a breakout your child will be safe. So it shouldn't matter if a couple children in the same school as your child aren't immunized. They will get sick and your child will stay healthy.
You also don't seem to understand what diversity means. Having everybody meet then same standard is the opposite of being diverse. Forcing a group of people to conform to a standard has the affect of making the group leave. How in the world can you maintain diversity if you make it difficult for people with beliefs that are not similar to your own?
BobVB, I mean no disrespect but you appear to have any idea what you are talking about. Right now all I have to do it turn the immunization form over and check the Religious Exemption box. How can you make it any easier than that?
If this bill is passed as written. I will have to go to get a physician to sign off on my Religious Exemption. How in the world is that easier than what I do now!
This bill also doesn't make any sense! Why in the world is the state forcing my doctor to determine my religious convictions. That should be between me and my pastor not me and my doctor! I can't be the only one who sees the insanity here.
