NYC Millionaires are bankrolling the antivax movement.

Best case scenario: they are causing horrible and PREVENTABLE sufferings to innocent children.

Worst case scenario: these people have BLOOD on their hands. They KILL children.

@ParadeGrotesque "They should be allowed to have the measles if they want the measles," Mr Bigtree told reporters

So no, this isn't an issue of individual rights, but one of public safety.
