A Croatian court has ruled that children must receive specific vaccinations because children's right to receive health care is more important than parent's rights to make stupid decisions.

(Borrowed from Reddit)

I have to wonder what people in the United States would have to say about this. The anti-vaccination conspiracy loons I'm sure will be up in arms, but I can think of no legitimate perspective in which a parent's right to make stupid decisions is more important than any child's right not to die of polio, or any number of other preventable diseases.

Yeah, these Anti-Vaccination parents are just being ridiculous. If they were the majority, our nation would have another polio epidemic.

Are people still going on about vaccines causing their kids to have autism?

That's such a stupid, paranoid and damaging myth that has no basis in fact whatsoever.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16
