Parents Protest Kids' Right To Get Sick From Preventable Illness



Hundreds of conspiracy theorists in Washington state met Friday to protest against vaccinating kids.

Approximately 700 people gathered for a public hearing in Olympia on a bill that would put more requirements on families attempting to back out of mandatory vaccinations for children, The Washington Post reported. The bill would not be used to make it harder for children to get rid of the vaccine shots for mumps, rubella and measles.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Paul Harris, comes amid the state's worst measles outbreak in decades. At least 49 cases have been confirmed in Clark County, leading Gov. Jay Inslee (D) to issue a state of emergency

The cases are primarily in children ages 1

A growing number of parents incorrectly believe that the government is covering up a connection between vaccines and autism, a notion that scientists have thoroughly debunked. ] The state currently allows vaccination exemptions for children at schools based on medical, religious or philosophical beliefs, The Associated Press reports. The new bill would remove parents' ability to opt out based on philosophical beliefs.

"I want to remind you that the MMR vaccine is extremely safe and highly effective," Washington state Health Secretary John Wiesman told lawmakers, according to the Post "All reputable scientific studies have found no relation between measles and autism."

Anti-vaccine protests Marry Holland told the Post that if the bill passes, those who don't believe in vaccinations will "move out of the The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say one dose of measles vaccine is 93 percent effective at preventing the illness. Health officials also say lower vaccination rates decrease so-called herd immunity, which can endanger children who are vaccinated for medical reasons.
