Law and Order: SVU had a perfect example of just how selfish a parent could be by not vaccinating a child.
Basically, the show started out with a young mom who went out partying and stated that she had left her baby girl with a nanny. Of course there was no nanny and the young mom had actually buried her dead daughter. The daughter at the time was not old enough to get a vaccine yet.
The mom thought that when the baby was crying she had hit her too hard and she panicked. Except that the baby didn't die from being hit, instead she died from the measles.
It turns out in one of the parks that the mom took her daughter too there was a woman who's son who had been sick and turns out had the measles, so the virus was spread because the mother did not get the vaccine for the child.
The mom with the kids who had measles was arrested for the babies death. She was found not guilty.
But, there's more to the episode. After the woman was found not guilty there was a 911 call to her residence. You see the grandfather of the young woman who had her baby die run into the house.
The show makes it seem like he went in their to kill the woman who had the kid with the measles, but that's not what happened. He shot himself in the head and in his hand was a picture of his grand daughter.
So, not only was this woman responsible for a death of a baby, she's responsible for the death of the man as well.
Just because you choose to not vaccinate your child doesn't mean it won't have an effect on another child.10 AnswersParenting1 decade ago

Especially if they already know that their child can't sit still and causes scenes? Do I have to explain this? An Austic child will have no concept of God, it's just not going to happen.36 AnswersParenting1 decade ago

Don't you find it disgusting that Casey Anthony is being attacked by the media for the disappearance of her
child. When the McCann's did something way worse and people feel sorry for them? The only difference between the McCann's and the Anthony case is that the McCann's had money!3 AnswersMedia & Journalism1 decade ago
If he's such a great leadoff hitter this year then why has he been stuck at 34 stolen bases for the past 21 games? Sure he's had a little bit more power numbers lately with a homerun and 5 rbi's, but that's not too impressive considering for how many games he's been in to only have 26 rbi's is a joke. I don't get why people defend him as being such a great player when he's not that great.6 AnswersBaseball1 decade ago

They don't believe that the age of 12 they could possibly be starting to think about sex. Do parents forget that females go through puberty at a younger age then a male does? Why do parents believe that when a older guy goes after a younger girl lets say an 18 year old male and a 16 year old girl that the guy is the one who should get in trouble for it? When the girl knows exactly what she's doing?8 AnswersAdolescent1 decade ago
