Following a nonfatal outbreak of measles that began at Disneyland, the California Legislature is debating a bill (SB 277) to outlaw parental choice about childhood vaccinations.

Today’s guests support vaccinations, but oppose making them compulsory; they discuss the issues involved from a variety of perspectives, including law, civil rights, and medical ethics. Caitlyn Obolsky and Robert Krakow are attorneys; Elliot Cohen teaches ethics at Florida State University Medical School; Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist; Lori Martin Gregory is editor of the Mom Street Journal.
