Or was that anti-Pollyanna?

Those "harmless childhood illnesses" can do a lot of lasting damage, including death. Anti-vax parents holding "chicken pox parties" and the like should have their children removed into foster care. Vaccinating should not be "parents choice". Not vaccinating your kids is abuse (unless for very rare medical reasons).

And I say this NOT for the purpose of punishing bad parents, but for the legitimate social goal of protecting children from their parents' insanity, much in the spirit of Child Protective Services and the foster care system.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
