The recent outbreak of measles in California calls into question the foolish way vaccinations are treated in the U.S. Failure to vaccination puts many at risk, not just your child. Schoolmates are particularly in danger where schools do not have an enforceable policy. Despite all this, nearly all states have a religious or philosophical exemption from mandatory laws. As a result, many are at risk and, surprisingly, Mississippi leads all states in vaccination percentage.

When there is an issue of public health, there should be nosuch thing as a religious or philosophical objection. Religious freedom stops when it inflicts harm to other people.

Note: In some communities, in pre-vaccine days, when measles or other was present, authorities would place a yellow "Quarantine" sign on your front door.
