California Senate votes to end beliefs waiver for school vaccinations

California parents who do not vaccinate their children would have to home-school them under a bill passed Thursday by the state Senate, the latest move in a battle between public health officials and "anti-vaxxers" who fear vaccines are dangerous.

The bill, which eliminates the so-called personal beliefs exemption allowing parents to forego vaccinations if opposed to them for any reason, was introduced after a measles outbreak at Disneyland last year that sickened more than 100 people.

"The personal beliefs exemption is endangering the public," said Democratic state Senator Richard Pan, a pediatrician and co-author of the bill. The measure still allows children to attend school without vaccinations for medical reasons.

In recent years, vaccination rates at many California schools have plummeted as parents, some of whom fear a link between vaccines and autism, have declined to inoculate their children against such diseases as polio and measles.

we don't have "illegals" in California. But, undocumented immigrants have access to free clinics where they can get vaccinations at no cost here.
Yes you do.. there are millions living in CA because the VIOLATED Immigration laws to enter the country/state.

What is the definition of Illegal. IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW..

Calling Illegal Immigrants "Undocumented Immigrants" is like calling a Bankrobbery an Undocumented Withdrawal.

It's illegal to speed. Do we call speeders "illegals". Human beings can't be illegal. Their actions can be illegal, but they can't be illegal.

Here I was thinking this was a thread about vaccinations, not the PC language of what to call criminal aliens who have entered this country illegally.

Yes, because it's important that white Americans be able to dehumanize others. It makes it easier to denigrate them.

So only white Americans refer to those whole break our laws as illegal or criminal? Nothing racist about that comment.

Please tell us how the liberal mind refers to criminals in our newly founded PC society today.

A murderer is a murderer. I've never heard them referred to as illegals. A thief is a thief. I've never heard them referred to as illegals.

Dodging the question I see.

I'm thinking calling someone a murderer is much more "dehumanizing" than calling someone an illegal.
