I'm not an anti-vaxxer, for the last time. I'm a centrist. When people go extreme either way, I go to center. To people who are extreme, I look like I represent the other side, but I actually don't. People who say vaccines are totally safe are just as bad as people who are saying that vaccines are guaranteed to harm you.
I think people should be fully informed on all the scientifically proven and listed adverse effects of vaccines before they decide to get themselves or their children vaccinated. Everyone has a right to informed consent. What we are seeing pushed by the medical establishment is a downplaying of what could possibly happen, combined with a total lack of culpabiltiy when something *does* happen. The vaccine court in the USA has already paid about $4 billion since the 90's. The court is funded by tax dollars and the payouts are from tax dollars. No corporation ever suffers real consequences when their vaccines harm people because they have legal immunity. It's why the vaccine schedule has exploded to dozens of vaccines since the 90's... they are cheap to make, they don't have the same classification as other drugs and therefore don't undergo the same testing rigours, and the companies who make them are immune to being sued.
Along those lines, I am 100% against forced vaccination. I don't care if it's the best medicine in the world, the right of medical refusal is sacrosanct and an inalienable human right that must be preserved. If you believe that people should be forced against their will by government to undergo a medical intervention then you don't belong in the western world and you should go live in Saudi Arabia or North Korea.
