New York ends religious exemption to vaccine mandates
New York eliminated the religious exemption to vaccine requirements for schoolchildren Thursday, as the nation’s worst measles outbreak in decades prompts states to reconsider giving parents ways to opt out of immunization rules.

The Democrat-led Senate and Assembly voted Thursday to repeal the exemption, which allows parents to cite religious beliefs to forego getting their child the vaccines required for school enrollment.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed the measure minutes after the final vote. The law takes effect immediately but will give unvaccinated students up to 30 days after they enter a school to show they’ve had the first dose of each required immunization. ...

This is a tough issue because many think the US is a free country. Yes, it is in certain ways, but not totally free-there are laws to prevent you from driving through stop signs, parking your car in the middle of the street, and so on.
Many areas have strict zoning codes; for example, I know that in the Adirondack Forest in NY State, you cannot build a subdivision of new homes; only 1 home per 55 acres or so is allowed. They don't want anyone to build over the forest. I imagine a lot of NY City dwellers would love to have a second home 'in the woods' and many do already have them in the older sections and towns of the Forest.
But Houston is a city that does not have as strict zoning codes, so you could wake up one day and decide to run a bakery out of your house, and the govt would not be coming to close you down.
On a TV show about pies, they showed a lady who did baking in her house but had to set the pie outdoors where she would wait for the buyer to drive up to buy it.
The buyer just could not knock on the door and be invited inside to buy the pie.
In this measles brouhaha, I just wonder if the same parents object to the polio vaccine. I know the Orthodox Jews probably do object to it.

Quoting a big city Democrat, who ignorantly compares polio with measles, as if they have a clue. Next you'll be quoting Alexandria O Cortez.

Ah, the "greater good" theory. Another meaningless term, useful for power junkies. Fits right in with "public health" and "public safety."

How about this, Jim. NYS wants to give illegals free college and driver's licenses. (Not free for legals, btw) Illegals bring disease, for they are not screened as are legal immigrants. When did the increase in cases begin? Did you read the article? How many children with weakened immune systems are actually in school? Is 1000 cases of a relatively mild problem, out of a population of over 300 million, an issue the State has to flex its muscles about? No, but the issue is not public health, but lust for money and/or power, just like it always is. Connect the dots.

One reason, Mike of NY, is that some children cannot be vaccinated because of weakened immune systems. This means a germy kids have to be kept away from them. By the way, Maine has already has this type of law. If you read the article you will see other states are already thinking about it. It's an excellent idea even the Jehovah Witnesses --as nutty as they are-- aren't against vaccinations

The foaming at the mouth gov. of NY will sign anything that is corrupt, bankrupt, or evil.

Here's the logic:
"Democrat Jeffrey Dinowitz, the bill’s Assembly sponsor. “If you choose to not vaccinate your child, therefore potentially endangering other children ... then you’re the one choosing not to send your children to school.”

So your unvaccinated kid poses a threat to the vaccinated ones. How so, since most people will vaccinate their kids.?Interesting how Democrats think, if that's what you call it. At least he didn't call them "our children" which they never are.

The religious freedom vs public health issue? Note religious freedom is personal and real, public health a meaningless abstract phrase, frequently used to promote sick ideas in the name of health.

Count the number of cases, see how many, if any, are serious, then tell us how this is a "public health" issue, Mr. Cuomo.

Let's bring some more illegal immigrants to NY, none of which had any vaccinations then wonder why we have these diseases. Wait, let's give them drivers licenses and free collage. I didn't get it, kill our baby's and bring in immigrants to replace them. Just in case they still don't vote , let's get them high and legalize prostitution. How did we get here?

The article explains the position of many state governments, probably all them, except they haven't gone this far. if there becomes too many large pools of children who aren't vaccinated against preventable disease, you will see even more States follow this approach. it just means these children well not be able to attend public school. I don't think it extends further than that.

The article is well worth reading.
