Same here. I've never met anyone who wasn't vaccinated, but you're also required to have your vaccinations to attend elementary school where I live. (I'm like 99% certain) I guess I just believe in letting people voluntarily remove themselves from the gene pool. And I know how bad that sounds, but look at these people for just a second. They're provided the same education as every one else, they've spent just as much time observing society as everyone else, but they still want to die. Let them. Damn. That sounds bad. I'm not trying to sound like a jackass, it's just how its coming out tonight.

Well that's not the reason they don't want vaccines. Rumors circulate about bad side effects of vaccines, a worried parent looks online about it. Problem is they hone into articles or sites about bad side effects, and constructs their belief based on what they want to see instead of looking both sides of the argument. Then they find a support group with hundreds of people thinking the same thing, and nothing reinforces belief stronger than peer support. As the group grows bigger, rumor spreads wider, and process repeats. Some smarter people realize the mistake and change sides, but an average person is none the wiser.

There's also a massive stigma on autism, mental disorder, and child growth defects while death is so commonplace in our culture it is not as shocking. So when a rumor that a vaccine can cause autism, these parents worry more about their kid becoming autistic than the chance of death.

As a side note, caccines are not 100% effective, because diseases infect more than just humans. You can't vaccinate every living thing on earth after all. There will always be a new virus trying to kill us.
It's just going to be another political football that they throw around for the next 20 years. Highly charged subjects like this usually are.
Again, I'm all for the spirit the law is promoting, if you're going to take the money there should be strings attached to that money.
BUT. The precedent that it sets is... I don't know... for lack of a better term, unsettling to me.

This is not really that big of an issue here in Aus. I have never met anyone who isn't vaccinated. Schools here provide vaccination forms to every student each year, up to year 10. Doctors usually ask for vaccination histories to help them assess your health.
