Enforced vaccinations?

November 25, 2008

The subject of vaccinations for children is an emotional subject with parents feeling strongly for and against. I don’t have children so I can’t say what I would do, but I do believe strongly in the individual’s right to choose. That is why I want to draw your attention to a petition before Parliament by Mary Creary, a Labour MP. She wants to make vaccinations compulsory for children and if parents refuse she suggests their children should not be allowed to attend school and the parents should not receive child benefits.

Many alternative therapists, particularly homoeopaths, are against wholesale vaccination on health grounds as they can compromise the immune system of a developing child and they have got up a petition to voice their protests. Anyone can sign who wishes to and they have nearly six and a half thousand signatures so far.

The closing date to sign online is 29th November so you don’t have much time to make your voice heard. Here’s the link: http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/forcedvaccines/

This is now closed – You can still see the results of the petition online at the link above.
