Vaccination, or lack thereof, is fundamentally a liberty as opposed to a right. It is scary to think we have to be granted the "right" to be vax free.

One day we will all be eating antibiotics for breakfast, like cows...
Except, that's a ridiculous and unfounded statement. Where have you ever seen a study that formula-fed kids spread more disease? I think most people would argue against that suggestion because it's preposterous, not because it's a public health issue.
