Don't see large groups of people advocating for drinking water out of the drainage ditch in front of their house either.

Yet you do see the equivalent for vaccines.

You said, "If everyone stopped vaccinating today, I would not have a problem with that."

How is that not anti-vaccine? Aren't you included in that "everyone"?

How does one "tend" to have the most patients that are affected by vaccines?

Parental fear isnít a reason for a medical waiver. (And before I get attacked, I am not talking about Kara or her daughterís situation, but medical waivers in general).

Itís targeted at boys to protect them from getting penile cancer (and other cancers) from HPV. Isnít that a good thing??
Parental fear? You mean like the fear that your precious child might sit next to a kid whoís not fully vaccinated? So much fear that youíll deny that child an education?

Doctor shopping. Everyone knows it occurs, even the people that like to pretend it isn't.

People are advocating for choice and to keep the doctor patient relationship in tact. Sorry you refuse to even try to understand.

Given that measles are being controlled in countries where clean water is still an issue (like India), thereís no question the vaccine saves lives even when water quality is an issue.

And plenty of people are advocating globe wide for access to clean water. Youíre just not paying attention.

Because I donít care what other people do with their bodies. They can choose to vaccinate or choose not to. Thereís nothing about that statement or belief that make me ďanti-vaccineĒ?

FALSE. Here is you advocating non vaccinated children to be allowed in public school, thus what you just described is not the ONLY thing being advocated for:

Deny education? No, false again.

They are free to pursue education through any private channels that will accept them.

Think about it. An oncologist will have more kids with medical exemptions because they will be exempted from vaccines while being treated.
