Basically this article is about how New York is changing its policy against Anti-Vaxxers to remove religious exemption from being a excuse for non-vaccination, which I think to be a good thing, read more at https://www.theguard...easles-religion

Excellent. This should never have been an option. There has been no scientific proof linking Thimerosal with Autism, the same preservative used in the saline solution I have put in my eyes for the last 40+/- years. Either vaccinate or keep your kids out of public schools. Suck it Jenny McCarthy, who is personally responsible for 152,763 illnesses and 9028 deaths.
"...TV producer Derek Bartholomaus, who started the infamous website JennyMcCarthyBodyCount.com in 2009 after the famed actress espoused radical and irresponsible views on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Over six years, Bartholomaus tallied 152,763 illnesses and 9,028 preventable deaths."

Another prize excerpt from the article above:
"Meanwhile, the anti-vaxxer movement gained momentum and Jenny McCarthy suffered no repercussions for providing debunked and discredited scientists with a massive platform. McCarthy continued to tell the world that her son Evan’s autism was caused by vaccines laced with dangerous chemicals. How did McCarthy reach her scientific conclusion? She told Oprah it was “mommy instinct.” She had a bad feeling before the MMR shot."
McCarthy, now 46 years old, had her son at age 40. If anyone is to blame for her son's birth defects it is her.
Risk of birth defects
A woman's risk of having a baby with chromosomal abnormalities increases with her age. Down syndrome is the most common chromosomal birth defect, and a woman's risk of having a baby with Down syndrome is:
- At age 20, 1 in 1,441
- At age 25, 1 in 1,383
- At age 30, 1 in 959
- At age 35, 1 in 338
- At age 40, 1 in 84
- At age 45, 1 in 32
- At age 50, 1 in 44
