What if measles were lice?

“There’s nothing wrong, unnatural or dangerous about head lice.

So, anti-vaccine parents, how would you feel if other parents made the following claims?

  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because I don’t want to expose them to harsh chemicals.
  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because head lice are natural.
  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because I am philosophically opposed to killing lice.
  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because ex-Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy told me that treating head lice causes autism.
  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because I had lice when I was a kid and it didn’t hurt me.
  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because I’m not concerned about whether all the other children around him or her get head lice, too.
  • I refuse to treat my child’s head lice because freedom means that I am free to let my child pass head lice to all the other children he meets.”

Read the whole article, it’s quick and thought-provoking.
