Australia to Penalize Parents Who Don't Vaccinate Children

Posted by @DanHinmon, Sep 16, 2015

The Australian government said on Wednesday that it will pass a law that would withhold child care and other payments from families that fail to immunize their children. The “No Jab, No Pay Bill” introduced to Parliament would also remove a category of “conscientious objector” that allowed parents to remain eligible for full government benefits despite not immunizing their children.

Is Australia going too far? Should the US pass a similar law?
