Dr. Ben Carson responds to the vaccination controversy

By Tom Quiner


Here is what Dr. Carson had to say about the role of government in requiring immunizations of our children:

“Although I strongly believe in individual rights and the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit, I also recognize that public health and public safety are extremely important in our society.”

Certain communicable diseases have been largely eradicated by immunization policies in this country and we should not allow those diseases to return by foregoing safe immunization programs, for philosophical, religious or other reasons when we have the means to eradicate them.”

    I absolutely agree. It is akin to child neglect to not immunize your children. There is NO LINK to autism and vaccinations. No empirical link, anyway. I had chicken pox as a child, and later shingles as an adult, and trust me, that is NOT something you want to suffer through. Vaccinate your kids.

    Solid positions are held every issue by Dr.Carson.


    Many Americans believe ISIS to be a main issue. Here is a copied post on Dr. Carson’s National Draft page:

    Dr. Ben Carson has been quite vocal about ISIS and their persistent threat to our Country. While the president has yet to utter the words “islamic terrorists” and publicly done little to discuss the 2 Americans who were beheaded, the little country of Jordan isn’t messing around…. http://www.bizpacreview.com/…/jordan-stands-up-to-isis-kill…
