This culture intertwines with the social development of this country as people are choosing to follow their own choices. Today, many parents reject vaccines as they are concerned that vaccines can cause autism, a belief that originated with a now-discredited 1998 study. In 2010, a study found that “Nearly 40% of parents of toddlers have skipped or delayed a childhood vaccination”(Breslow). The percentage of these anti-vaccinators were raised due to the promotion of this rejected study. California is the top of these measles cases as it is “one of 20 states that allow parents to skip vaccination based on their personal, philosophical belief”(Harris, Popovich, and Powell).
While only they are putting their children at great risk with no shots (Hay). Immunizations have prevented 90% of diseases in the world these days are from spreading (CDC). Parents need to see specialized people for any type of misinformed questions that they have on vaccinations. Today, even though people think that vaccinations are required at a certain age in school, as they should be there are exemptions from them (CDC). People do use religious and opinionated excuses to prevent their children from becoming vaccinated.
Although some citizens believe that vaccine are harmful and they should get to choose if they get them or not, vaccines can be justified as a safe, effective method to stay immune to diseases. In order to ensure the health of the public and prevent illnesses, it is essential to make vaccines mandatory. When people are not vaccinated, they have a high risk of developing disease, which can lead to sickness and possible death. According to UNICEF, a program providing humanitarian and developmental assistance, 16,000 children die every day from preventable or treatable causes. This statistic shows how many lives we are losing due to the fact that people are not vaccinated.
Some parents have refused vaccinations for their children based on religious objections. The moral opposition to these vaccines is due to the acquisition of the initial cell lines in which vaccine viruses are grown. (Chatterjee, 2010) These parents believe it is morally illicit to attain fetal tissue in any manner whether it’s the mother having the abortion, the abortionist performing the act, the researcher or the vaccine manufacturer. Not only do they feel “these parties are all equally guilty of assisting in premeditated murder but they fear these practices can contribute in the encouragement of voluntary abortions, for the intended purpose of making vaccines.” https://cogforlife.org/vaccines-abortions/ In response to these concerns, the
All around America parents are getting their children vaccinated, yet there’s the small amount of parents that are endangering all of America by their uneducated decision. Along with 15 other vaccine preventable diseases, Hepatitis A (Hep. A) is spread by simply not getting the vaccine. Carriers of Hep. A are noted to have no symptoms, although anything the carrier touches becomes infected with Hep.
According to the WHO, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions every year around the globe. The dictionary definition for abortion is ‘the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy’, and people usually very absolutist about their stances regarding this topic. The two sides of the argument are those who are pro-choice or pro-life. The pro-choice side argue that it is the free will of the parent/s to decide on how to handle the pregnancy as unplanned pregnancies could mean a detrimental life for both the parent/s and the baby as the parent/s may not have the resources to support and take care of the baby, or are not ready for such big change and responsibility. On the other hand, the pro-life side argue that life begins at conception
The ideas behind this moral distinction is that in passive euthanasia the doctors are not actively killing anyone but they are just not saving the patients. Most people think that euthanasia can be justifiable, when the patients are facing incurable disease, undergoing suffer, terminally ill and requests for euthanasia as their last wishes. For instance, Somerville (2010) argued that it is important to respect the people’s right of self-determination and autonomy. In other words, people should have the right to choose their time of dying but the state have prevented and stop them from doing it.
Vaccines are made from all different ingredients and if a concern parent is involved in vaccinations then the parent should know everything about the vaccination. For example if a child has a allergic reaction to the shot but does not cause autism, he just gets light headed or a few bumps then maybe those are side effects. Side effects are better because the child may feel ill for a few days but that does not mean he will have autism or some form of it Nelson states the “WHO and other aid organizations helped to drive home the necessity of controlling diseases in developing countries” (Nelson 712). The World Health Organization controls the diseases and tries to not cause autism to children. Scientist also study the rates and ratios on vaccines too.
Not all of these jags are always 100% effective however, like wearing a helmet on a bike, they can provide life saving protection yet for some reason some parents are fighting against them. This may not seem like a large problem however with the election of the new President of the United States openly supporting anti-vaxers and the decreasing trust in medical profesionals and anything that is 'un-natural' it is becoming an impending danger. In America, most schools require a selection of Hepatitis B, Diphtheria, Tetanus
One of the major differences is that we can pick our husband/wife and where we live. We can also have your own kids and raise them where we want and not have the government give us kids from birth mothers. Another big difference is that we can die naturally, but in The Giver they can 't they have to be ‘released to Elsewhere’, which we learned means that they get injected with poison to kill them.”They haven 't eliminated murder they just call it by different name”Jonas told the giver. He 's trying to say it’s wrong for the elders to be put to death and not be able to die naturally. The last extreme change is that we have emotions, feelings and we can see color, Jonas’s society is so much about equality that they don 't want anyone to be different or they fear that the people will have the power to chose what they want to do.
