• A Pakistan law worth replicating

    Usually, I won’t cheer for Pakistani laws, but this one makes a lot of sense:

    Hundreds of parents in northwestern Pakistan were arrested and jailed on charges of endangering public security after refusing to allow their children to be vaccinated for polio, officials said Monday. Feroz Shah, a spokesman for the district administration in Peshawar, capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, said 471 people had been jailed starting over the weekend in the city and surrounding villages.

    They are entitled to their opinion, sure, but they’re not entitled to endanger their own children.

    Kids are humans and their Human Rights can’t be overruled by their parents’ wishes.

      Besides which, they’re not only endangering their own children.
