WHAT!!!! Well hopefully he's sterile now and nobody will have to deal with the ignorance that's passed down. Also I was raised Catholic and there is nothing I was ever taught that said no to get vaccinated. I'd like someone to ask the Pope his opinion.

Sterile? Thats a little harsh, IMHO... Anyway that comes from Mumps.

I read in an article that says some extreme orthodox Catholics don't vaccinate as one or more of the vaccines in question were attenuated in cells derived from an aborted fetus. 

But still. I'd bet my socks they took him to a pox party.

You're right that was harsh, it's just my frustration over people not vaccinating and putting others at risk. It just seems very self-centered. I can't imagine any religious leader would support something that puts the frail and sick at risk. 

I apologize for letting my emotions get the better of me. Thank you for calling me on it.

The Catholic Church has put out statements that, while some vaccines may have a historical link to aborted fetuses (when the vaccine was created it used "descendant cells" from an aborted fetus as the medium in which to grow the vaccination), followers have a moral obligation to protect the health and well being of others, specifically children, around them. 

So basically it's more morally & ethically incorrect to skip a vaccine and kill a kid by giving them chicken pox/measles/mumps/rubella than it is to get a vaccine that maybe-sorta-kinda had a link to an aborted fetus once upon a time.

"Had state health officials not intervened, the family's lawyer, Wiest said, his client would have had the chickenpox earlier this year."

Ooorrrrrrrrr the student could have infected all those who weren't immune, whether because of lack of vaccination or failure to become immune. Why is it always about the single person/family and no consideration for others? Why is it people view these as a simple childhood disease when there are some nasty complications possible?
