Vaccine mandate laws are sweeping the nation hidden within the Trojan Horse of minor measles outbreaks that have not been deadly in this, a first world nation with sanitation, access to medicine and clean water (Detroit notwithstanding....) I add this because the response to mandate balking has been to talk about close to 1000 deaths in Madagascar following a measles outbreak. Madagascar to most of us is an imaginary place where penguins fly airplanes and a dancing hippo flirts with a hypochondriac giraffe. In reality, it is one of the top 25 poorest countries in the planet, riddled with malnutrition, no sanitation and filthy water. Take a peek at the stats from WHO on probability of death under the age of 5 in Madagascar versus the USA: 44 to 7.
The estimate from attendees whom we know was over 1300 protesters, there in America's Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota.
Hundreds Rally To Oppose Bill Limiting Vaccine Exemptions
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Hundreds of people opposed to requirements for childhood vaccines rallied at the Minnesota State Capitol Monday.
They were there to voice their opposition to a measure that would make it harder for parents not to vaccinate their kids.
A proposed Minnesota Senate bill would remove language in state law that allows parents to “conscientiously” object to the shots.
“We believe that parents should be able to make their own choice. They should be having this conversation with their doctor,” said Alicia Leiviska, of Health Choice Minnesota.
Those at the rally dispute the position by the medical and scientific community that vaccines are safe.
