People do use religious and opinionated excuses to prevent their children from becoming vaccinated. Parents and guardians believe myths and Facebook posts instead of well educated doctors to determine if their child should be vaccinated. This is a huge mistake! By not vaccinating your children properly you are not only putting them at risk, but the people around them that they encounter daily (CDC). Parents should not be able to make up an uneducated excuse to keep their children from being properly vaccinated.
Some may oppose vaccinations due to religious reasons, safety concerns, or because they were given misinformation. Nonetheless, these people collectively form the “Anti-Vaccination Movement”. However, not all members of the movement are extremists – out to destroy the science of vaccinations. On one spectrum, there are genuinely concerned parents, who are unsure which side of the battle they should listen to. However, on the other end, there are extreme “anti-vaxxers” who view vaccines as ‘poisonous’ and a violation of human rights.
On the other hand, the parents of the anti-vaccine movement do not vaccinate their children, while others choose the alternative vaccination schedule. Alternative schedules are likely to add a possible time of exposure to the viruses, “this increases the risks to the
Also, it is stated that unvaccinated people should have a harder time to opt out of being vaccinated by having a higher health care cost, higher insurance, and separate activities. All of those are over-exaggerated for this issue because, they all call for the government to intrude into people’s personal lives and not giving people the freedom of their rights. In addition, some people do not get vaccinated because of religious views, but it is stated that they can opt out if their religion is documented. So, what happens to the people that become sick and are not vaccinated and cannot afford health care? They could possibly spread a new disease that vaccinations do not cover and puts vaccinated and people who are not vaccinated at risk.
The ACLU would most likely file a lawsuit against any version of this policy if passed because they will say that it violates the separation of church and state because some of the schools that will take students using vouchers provided by the government. A potential harm of this policy is that is it could make it more difficult for children in heavily isolated areas to receive these higher levels of education because it will be difficult for them to have access to a private school. Students in these portions of the state are more likely to be the ones who need public schools than students that live in urban areas. While they will still receive a better education than before, it might not reach the level of the education being received by those in private
Ethics of Gattaca In recent discussions of the film Gattaca by Andrew Niccol, a controversial issue has been whether pre-implantation genetic diagnosis which is diagnosing a persons diseases before they are born using their genetics is ethical. On the one hand, some argue that the use of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is unethical. From this perspective, to discard babies who's lives would be greatly effected and much harder than others due to diseases that could be diagnosed before birth is unethical. Humans should not be able to “play God” or in other words decide another human’s fate no matter what. On the other hand, however, others argue that it is unethical not to use technology such as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis because
Analysis Health Restrictions To begin, in this journal Diekema informs families and American educators about the problem’s parents have with vaccinating their kids for school requirements because people believe they have a right to do want they want to their children. This journal focuses on the issue of vaccinations for school requirements. Diekema states “All but two states allow personal belief exemption for legal vaccination school enrollment”. Some parents choose not to inject their kids with diseases. Parents also don 't want their kids being around sick people to get them sick.
When someone decides that they don’t want to vaccinate their children, they do not only endanger their child, they endanger the people around them. Because a vaccine only works 95% of the time, those people in the 5% can contract the disease from the people who did not get the vaccine. Which is why vaccinations should be controlled by the government, and not the parents. When irresponsible parents decide their child cannot and should not be vaccinated, they put all the people around them at risk of sickness and even
