I understand the reasoning and scares to not vaccinate. Yet I also understand the reasoning and scares to vaccinate.
So what happens if we ALL decide to stop vaccinate? Every one of us. What happens then? Does disease find it's way back? Do you think those who don't vaccinate have the luxury to do so because of those who do? I vaccinated our children due to rest of family not. Close friends of theirs' chilren ended up getting whooping cough. My husband almost died of another vaccinatable sickness.
What it came down to was confusing..... Do I vac. and hope my child doesn't get this autism scare? Do I not vac, and if they poss. get sick and die or have lasting problems, how do I answer them about that? My choice due to popular belief at the time.
The very young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems would be at constant risk. We vaccinate to protect the people around us who aren't strong enough to fight off infection on their own. The implications would be terrible.

Have you seen all the deformities people in third world countries have? Most of them are from diseases affecting the fetus in the womb. Vaccines aren't meant to keep the disease from developing at all, they're meant to help our immune systems have a fighting chance against them. (Yes I know they don't always work 100% of the time.)

There is a reason why our wonderful doctors and scientist have came up with these amazing vaccinations. We would just end up having more infant and child deaths. CDC and the NIH say that there is no relationship between vaccines and autism.
