According to the blog the History of Vaccines, there were millions of cases of measles in the United States until vaccines were introduced in the 1960s. The graph above shows this obviously. By 2000, the measles were all but eradicated in the United States.
Worldwide, measles and many other dangerous diseases, like small pox, have been eradicated and just about wiped out.
Then religious people in the United States arose and started objecting to having their children vaccinated. Our society is succumbing to this insane trend, and now diseases that were all but gone are on the rise again.
Look at what happened to measles:
The year is not even over yet and we already have more than 600 cases in the United States.
We have schools in California where the percent of children who exercise the personal belief exemption is well above 50%. That’s going to be a challenge for any disease that is vaccine preventable.
— LA Times – Dr. Gil Chavez, deputy director of the California Department of Public Health’s Center for Infectious Diseases
Children don’t exercise this “exemption.” Parents do. And by doing it, they are killing their own children.
In the name of God.
