Quote from Jeweles26
So who then makes the choice?
Other than in real messed up cases, parents want what is best for their child.
The parents, the providers, the government. It really doesn't matter, the ethical concern that providers are faced with remains. A decision needs to be made in proxy.
I would like to think/hope most parents do want what is best for their kid. Whether all parents actually know and/or do what is best for them is ultimately the concern. Unfortunately, that line of thinking led to 90+ children dying from a virus that could have been (partially) prevented, in this case.
The waters are further muddied by the principles if herd immunity.
