    Should Vaccination Be a Personal Choice?

    atti_editor posted:
    "As a measles outbreak linked to Disneyland continues to spread, a backlash against parents who refuse or delay vaccination for their children has risen to a fever pitch."

    This topic spurred some heated discussion over on our Facebook page , and certainly elsewhere in the media. This article explores both sides of the vaccine argument and has some good expert commentary.

    I found it especially interesting to hear from the family who switched sides -- can any of you relate?

    Where do stand on this debate? Do you believe in vaccines? Why or why not?
