The real tangible fallout from anti-vaccination propaganda.

How are kids even getting in schools without vaccinations? I know where I live you just aren't allowed to go if you aren't properly vaccinated.

There are loopholes, like religious exemption.

Parents shouldn't have the right to not vaccinate their kids. Its a form of child abuse (abuse through deliberate neglect).

We'd all be up in arms if it transpired that some fundie cult was purposefully infecting their children with whooping cough. This amounts to the same thing. In both cases the end result is lots of sick kids.
He who desires to worship God must harbor no childish illusions about the matter but bravely renounce his liberty and humanity.

Not if they die from Whooping Cough or some other easily preventable disease.

Pretty much what Lastpoet said..

They will simply be the next generation of dumbass politicians, judges, etc. in some cases.....The rest will be working in ditches fucking their cousins and/or jail....
