Forced shots?
  • Do an Internet news search using the phrase "Parents Ordered to Court for Kids' Shots"
  • Read at least two of the articles found
  • Answer the following questions:
  1. What did your search produce?
  2. Have you ever been forced to have an injection against your wishes? If so, when? If you resisted and were successful, please give details.
  3. Is it ever OK for the government to enforce people to have injections? If so, when? If not, why not?
  4. The article that prompted this activity stated, "Scores of grumbling parents facing a threat of jail lined up at a courthouse Saturday to either prove that their school-age kids already had their required vaccinations or see that the youngsters submitted to the needle." Do you think it's right to put a parent in jail if they don't give their child a vaccination? Why or why not?
