Arizona legislators are moving forward with three bills that will make it easier for parents to give up life-saving vaccinations for their children and can even encourage them to do so. According to a report in The Republic of Arizona
The overwhelming legislative move comes when the country is fighting six outbreaks of measles, an extremely contagious disease that can be prevented by vaccines, which can be debilitating and even fatal to young children. One of these outbreaks occurs in Clark County, Washington, where stunning anti-vaccination views and similar vaccination laws stimulate the spread of disease. Since the beginning of the year, officials have collected 65 cases, mostly in children under the age of 1

Commission Chairman Nancy Barto (R-Phoenix) sponsors all three bills. She stated that "the individual right of each parent to decide the place of the vaccine in the child's life". She also falsely claims that she has credible data to recommend against large-scale vaccination. "We need to look at the data, look at science and realize that there is research on both sides."
Scientific research with voluminous, high-quality and reputable scientific research unanimously concludes that the benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks. 19659005] Arizona is already one of the 17 countries in the country that allows for personal exceptions for vaccination. Last week, Dr Scott Gottlieb, the Food and Drug Commissioner, warned that weak state laws could trigger federal action. If "some countries continue along the way they are currently, I think they will force the hands of federal health agencies," he told CNN.
