198 Right To Choose
Skip to the last minute and a half for Jon Stewart’s perfect vaccine analogy. Zombies.
“It’s like America is in an isolated farmhouse and the measles are zombies. Everybody in the farmhouse has been given the task of boarding up doors and windows in their area to keep out the zombies, because it’s well established science that zombies have a very difficult time with wood. And you trust everybody’s going to do their job, and then you wake up and it’s 2 in the morning and there’s a fucking zombie gnawing on your brain and you’re like, ‘What the fuck! Who didn’t board up their window?!‘ And that’s when some lady from Marin County who you let into your farmhouse goes, ‘Oh, I read an article on a wellness forum that says we shouldn’t sleep in boarded-up rooms because it fucks you all up.‘ And you know what you’d say back to them?
-But vaccines aren't natural.

It's still my choice.
It's also your choice to smoke or drive drunk, but not around my baby.
What are you saying?
Don't come over again until you get your shots or my baby is old enough to get theirs.
Wasn't that a little harsh?
No, Rob, we're going to be parents and this is serious.
But bullying her probably won't change her mind about vaccines.
Fine Mr. Science Communicator, you figure it out.
I would try using a puppet.
