Parents DON’T own their children. It’s rather the children that own their parents. Parents are responsible for the children, for making sure that they are cared for in the best way possible. Risking their lives and their health does NOT come under Best Care Possible.
It’s not about freedom. It’s about the Best Interest of the Child. And the best interest is to STAY ALIVE, dumbass!
When I was young, it wasn’t clear whether I had had rubella or not (I only had one spot on the forehead, and it could have been something else). When it was offered in school, when I was 13 or so, I decided to get vaccinated against it. If a woman gets it when she’s pregnant, the fetus might develop hearing disabilities. My parents were (of course, as they are decent and educated) completely behind my decision. My father trained as a nurse to become a psychologist, and I could get actual medical advice from him.
