Story at-a-glance -

  • Fear mongering about measles has reached epidemic proportions in America, and some state and federal lawmakers are reacting by proposing to severely restrict the medical vaccine exemption and eliminate all religious and conscientious belief exemptions in state vaccine laws
  • These exemptions, which help prevent vaccine injuries and deaths, also protect parental rights, civil liberties and the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking
  • Evidence published in the scientific and medical literature reveals a trend of measles vaccine failures, none of which is being discussed in public conversations about measles vaccine policies and mandatory vaccination laws
  • Vital statistics data from the early 20th century reveal that, although measles can cause complications like pneumonia, ear infections, and brain inflammation, measles infections have never been a leading cause of death or disability in the U.S.
  • Research shows vaccinated persons can be asymptomatically infected with wild type measles and may experience subclinical measles infections that remain unidentified and unreported
