It can feel frightening to contemplate skipping vaccines for your children. We’ve been told our whole lives that they are the only thing standing in between certain death and a lifetime of happiness. Unfortunately, the reality is much, much different. Vaccines can be a barbaric practice and I believe they might be considered a medical relic within a few decades. Imagine restraining your children on a table and purposefully injecting them with modified disease. Take away the linoleum floor, the fluorescent lights and blue scrubs. In any other setting, this practice might feel like a Satanic ritual. For some reason, we have grown to accept this as a natural and acceptable process to put our children through.
