The thing is, Gabrielle, my love. Everyone is good inside and it is your job to show them how that is true. If we take vaccination as an example, both sides are acting in love... what do they want? They want as many children and babies to survive in good health as possible. And it isn't as simple as "for or against." Perhaps some vaccinations are a "necessary evil" - that there are possible side effects but without them things would be a lot worse. Then perhaps together we can all ask how to make those vaccinations safer for everyone. Perhaps some have been pushed for financial gain and their benefit is more dubious. Perhaps some should not be given at all, or given separately instead of in one go. All any parent wants is a simple answer... and you'll get that when everyone realises they are on the same side and the financial motivations are removed. The only goal can be maximum health of babies and children... or to put it more vividly... we all want the smallest body count possible. So, get your act together, realise when you are on the same team.... and go for it... lives depend on it.

Before the measles vaccine, 2.6 million died from measles complications annually... and that's when the global population was less than half of what it is now. So, if there was no measles vaccine the deaths now would be over five million a year and most of them would be children under the age of five years. So, I'm sure we do need to look at vaccines and make them as safe as possible, but heard immunity is vital. Sometimes you do need to look at the big picture and see that what we have may not be perfect, but it is a lot better than nothing.
