“Almost three-quarters of parents want their child’s doctor to place restrictions on un-vaccinated patients from visiting their office, according to research.” The Newsweek article adds, “A nationally representative total of 2,032 parents with at least one child aged between 0 to 18 filled out the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health,” which found that “28 percent of parents said the doctor’s office should ask the parents of un-vaccinated children to find them another healthcare provider.” Additionally, “29 percent of parents said they were somewhat likely to change their child’s healthcare provider if they knew it was shared with un-vaccinated patients.”
This is an interesting survey. The problem for me is that I gave an oath to help all sick people to the best of my ability and not turn them away because of personal or religious beliefs, etc. Part of the Hippocratic Oath states, “I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course.”
Immunizations contain small amounts of mercury and other chemicals that are poisonous. The supposed purpose of these poisons is as a preservative and to cause an inflammatory reaction from the immunization that will be strong enough to stimulate immunization. The use of immunizations that contain poisons can be interpreted to contradict the oath. But, the oath allows for the physician to use ability and judgement in these matters.
Personally, I would be horrified if a majority of people in my community told me that I was not allowed to help sick people because of a personal or religious or ethnic belief. WARNING: This is what this survey is asking people to do.
