Should Anti-Vaxxers Be Punished?


Vaccination and the choice not to vaccinate your child has never been more controversial than right now during the global pandemic. Thanks to high profile anti-vaxxers there has been an increase in the number of parents opting not vaccinate their children. LiveTribers, do you think these parents should be punished? Are they putting other children in danger? Are you an anti-vaxxer?

    We live in a democracy , where individuals get to choose what is best for themselves . I don't think anyone should be ostracized for choosing what they feel is best for themselves . I generally tow the line , good or bad (my choice) . It's no different to religion , your choice , no one should be told to follow a certain faith or not . I'm not so certain with Evangelists , Mormons or Scientologists , if you have the money , go ahead ! No skin off my nose .

    I am not an anti vaxer and everyone has the right of choice but medical advice world wide is vaccination against these terrible diseases.

    Any parent who stands against the enormous multi-billion dollar a year Big Pharma industry coupled with Police, The Mass Media Propaganda Machine & the Government at every level deserves our full support. What should be punished through a Royal Commission is the Medical Profession - not the front-line health care workers who give everything they've got to try to look after the patients they're responsible for, but the agenda of Big Pharma. Exposed & punished. "Anti-vaxxers" are nothing new; but the stupid label is. Our parents, grandparents and so one have always took a stand against Medical Fascism, which is what we are seeing now & have been seeing for generations - and now it's our duty to do so as well - in a literal fight for survival. Fascism because only One view, their view, is permitted & any other view Must be shut down as it's a danger to their income stream. China has proven the Medical Profession can't cure a common cold, let alone the latest 'killer virus'. We knew it & have known it for decades. Traditional Chinese Medicine had it under control, not just in China, but around the world. Every single Covid-19 patient that took the prescribed medicine stayed out of intensive care and those who continued to take it & weren't subject to further complications did recover. Modi of India swore homeopathy & ayurvedic medicine would succeed in stopping this thing in his tracks on the day of its outbreak. The response in both cases was lightning fast - within days & to date India has made public not one, but five covid-19 preventatives & treatments whilst Big Pharma, if working from scratch (which it wasn't, as the vax was Ready Before Covid-19 even started - thanks to Bill "Kill" Gates - whom whole countries like Italy have demanded he be arrested on crimes against humanity), would take years, as initially quoted. People - vaccine injury is Real - Educate yourselves & don't let them conceal the numbers nor shift them around like they've been proficient in doing. There are currently thousands of Australians on Government Compensation for life due to Vaccine injury. There would be lawsuits in the billions if the government didn't limit Big Pharma's Legal Liability to a tiny $1000 for poisoning us with a lifetime's worth of sickess & diseases deliberately present by design (check the Centre For Disease Control's own website where they list the toxic ingredients in pretty much every vaccine) - just so they can "manage our symptoms" with their latest wonder drugs that cure nothing. Look, if they want to force that toxic filth into our bloodstreams, where our bodies can't remove them ever, the least they can do is accept Legal Liability for the consequences of their Murderous actions & removal of the sovereign rights we have always had over what gets put into our bodies. If you still believe this is the stuff of Conspiracy Theorists, go and buy yourself any One of the hundreds of books on the subject currently on the market & educate yourselves with what's really going on. My mother died at the hands of the Medical Profession with dozens of these books in her bookshelf at home. She was just one of the 100,000+ Australians who are laundered through the hospital system each year who die needlessly because it fulfills both a profits agenda & a population reduction agenda at the same time. If you can't afford to buy new or second-hand books on the subjects, now that you have oh so much time to read them, then borrow them from your local library, or for a much larger range, from your State Library. Recently, I have spoken to front-line nurses face to face who have come to my store and discussed how very anti-vax they are all becoming because of what they have seen throughout their careers. Vaccines, in all of history, have Never cured anything nor helped ease any epidemic simply because they were released long after each and every one of those 'killer diseases' had dramatically subsided. Reclassification, wrong numbers, blatant lies, biased testing to suit a pre-planned agenda are nothing new for the Medical Profession - it has been a decades long problem that The Money Power refuses to let go of, because it works, judging by the other comments on this page. No science is ever settled. Nobody can ever establish any "authority" in any science as there are always different views. This is what drives and incentivizes scientific advancement, competing views. If not, you'd still be driving unreliable cars & we'd be typing into a DOS-based computer in black & white.

    Absolutely. I do not think that we should have the right to choose whether or not our children are vaccinated. It should be compulsory. Anti vaccine is simply stupid. I agree with the comments that they have obviously never lived in an environment where they have been exposed to serious diseases. I recently had an anti-vaxer tell me that my choice to have my child vaccinated at birth is why he has Autism. It made me feel physically sick to have had this said to me. He was born incredibly sick and nearly died when he was born. I did exactly what the doctors told me to do to ensure he was able to survive, be healthy and not be at risk. Perhaps if anti-vaxers had a similar experience they would think differently.

    I think anti-vaxers have never lived in an environment where we had disease like polio, smallpox etc. If they had they might have a differnt view.

    My next door neighbour's child Sophie had a liver transplant at 9 months old. She is now 25 and will be on anti rejection drugs for the rest of her life. She has no immunity and the only way she is protected is for all others in the community to be vaccinated. Sophie and all the other children and young adults in the same circumstances deserve our consideration and action with regard to being vaccinated.

    I was once a fence sitter however with all the immigrants coming from third world countries now where the diseases of the past are virulent then I feel that for our children's sake vaccination is a must now. How do you know that the immigrants living next door or sending their kids to the local school are not carriers of TB, Mumps, Smallpox, etc. They may be carriers and not have any symptoms themselves. I grew up in the '50s and 60's when most immigrants came from Europe so this was not an issue so vaccinating or not was a viable choice. It isn't anymore though.

    I am not convinced at this stage that the vaccine is a good idea I think I would rather sit on the fence and see what happens in the coming weeks.

    I'm not anti-vax, but I am pro choice. It is your body and you should have the right to decide what goes in your body, vaccine or not? Also, people should be questioning more as to what these vaccine's contain

    Provided the anti vaxxer has a medically proven reason not to be vaccinated then fair enough. It seems that a majority of misinformed and risk taking anti vaxxers reside in Northern NSW and SE QLD. The same mislead nutters that believe in the miraculous benefits of THC and other non proven quackery. It's hard to believe that in our supposed knowledgable 21st. Century there are those in society that continue to deny facts and put us all and our children at risk. If it wasn't for EdwardJenner and the vaccine scientists that followed him most of us would not be here now. Still nutters like the Antivaxxers will keep Undertakers in profit!!!

    I am not an anti vaxer and everyone has the right of choice but medical advice world wide is vaccination against these terrible diseases such as Polio, Measles, etc. is necessary and yes I think if not enough people get vaccinated they are putting society at risk. It is a very contentious issue with many people believing some of these non medical so called experts sprouting unsubstantiated data which most has been debunked many times over. If someone is worried about the vaccinations then they should talk to a professional and get expert advice and not listen to people who believe in conspiracies etc.

    Thanks to vaccinations diseases such as Polio etc., have all but been eliminated. Now a fringe element, relying on uninformed information, think they know better than years of experience have proved. Let the anti vaxers have their way but make sure that they and their offspring are not allowed to associate with people who love their family and children and don't want them to suffer the way that they had to before these life saving vaccinations were invented.
