Re: “Sponsor pulls pro-vaccination bill after outcry from opponents

I didn't support this bill and I have no idea who "Secure Arkansas" is. I'm not a conspiracy theorist by any stretch of the means. I know many people who were against this bill who were from every political party out there, many who would even say they were blue all the way! And guess what? Many of those in opposition are actually pro-vax. This bill wasn't about pro-vax or anti-vax, it caused an uproar because it would strip the rights of our citizens to healthcare of their choice. It is forcing medical requirements on people! If it starts there, where would it go after that? It worries me how many people were in favor of this bill. Did you not think about people's freedom? Are you wrapped up in the fear-mongering that media on both sides portray? There is so much about blaming nonvaxxed people on "epidemics" and "outbreaks" that doesn't make sense/add up with the research (and I'm not talking about the Wakefield thing). Would we really sacrifice our freedom to medical choice without thoroughly knowing and understanding the research? Doctors are great, but no one is perfect and I choose to research myself before making any decisions regarding my children's health. I've witnessed way too many misdiagnoses, incorrect med dosages, and other errors on the part of physicians, affecting mine and my children's healths to just take their word for it. I always hear them out and then I hit the literature, the published studies, the books. And I prefer to do so away from pro vax or anti vax resources where things are often skewed. Give it a chance, you might be surprised by what you learn. And you might realize your freedom of choice is more important than whether you take a shot or not.
