"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

I legitimately have to ask

Has there been a corresponding decrease in autism cases?

On the other hand, there was the recent case of the child who was hospitalized for months with the first case of tetanus seen in the U.S. in nearly 30 years.  The parents refused further tetanus vaccinations after he was well enough to leave the hospital.

You simply can't fix stupid.  Sometimes, you just have to legislate it out of existence.  Giving people excuses to refuse vaccinations is one of those times when public health outweighs private interests; or ignorance, as the case may be.

The law, apparently makes children the chattels of their parents, no matter how stupid or nuts they are. The law so often proves it's an ass.
