To Anti-vaccine zealots

This is a copy of something I said in an email conversation.

One more thing everybody: The anti-vaccine argument for a new spin on “freedom” is basically, “I have a right to do what I want with my own body.” Unfortunately, the law of the land mostly agrees with you, just it agrees with the pro-abortion argument. But I say, it’s not just the woman’s body; it’s the body of another person, a dependent child, entrusted by nature and nature’s God to her care. Similarly, it isn’t just your body either. The life and health of your neighbor is a moral obligation imposed by the second greatest commandment of the Law. “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” That you imagine that your selfish position, to further the spread of this contagion, is even consistent with Christianity tells me that you don’t even have a clue about anything to do with Jesus Christ and what He commands. As He said, “Woe to you scribes, Pharisees, hypocrites… blind guides that strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.”
