Croatian Constitutional Court Decides Child Vaccination Is MANDATORY! Were They Right?? Get The Controversial Details HERE!

croatian constitutional court decides children vaccinations mandatory

We have a feeling there's going to be a big divide of opinion on this!

The Croatian Constitutional Court has rejected a proposal that it is a parents' right to vaccinate their child, and has upheld the country's Ministry of Health's decision that "the child's right to health [is more important] over the rights of parents to the (wrong) choice."

A public debate is expected to go down sometime on the controversial topic, but the Croatian Institute for Public Health hopes to implement the rule as soon as possible!

There are many non-fans of the ruling including the head of the Croatian Association for Patients' Rights who said in a statement:

"The Constitutional Court's decision was based on assumptions about the harmfulness of vaccination, and on important issues, such as non-compliance with international conventions, has not been decided. The Constitutional Court of the Convention on the Rights of the Child has interpreted otherwise than in developed countries. There are many arguments. We are fighting to prove that violates constitutional human rights. The decision is to the detriment of citizens and all of us."

Unvaccinated children may be refused to enter kindergarden and school if they are not vaccinated, to 'protect the herd,' which is a very legitimate concern!

This is a pretty extreme ruling, but Croatia isn't the first country to rule that children must have mandatory vaccinations.

It's obvious that their court ruling has the country's children in mind, but is it right to make it mandatory?

It's a very difficult question!

    Homeschool! Take the money away from the schools. I vaccinated my kid's, but only the shots that was given in the 80s because since the 90s I had autism hit my family. Like 7kid's in my family have a form of autism. My kids are the only ones that don't have sensory problems. Thanks to a scientists friend who warned me the government refused Jehovah witness testing and kid's are getting way too many shots at one time. They should be farther apart. Too much toxins at once. Fyi I am pro vaccines

    Good idea. Already polio is resurfacing. These gullible fools who don't vaccinate their children because they've been listening to Jenny McCarthy are misinformed and putting their children at risk to suffer their entire lives.

    Not really an extreme ruling considering that the Ministry of Health already had this rule on the books. The challenging proposal was refused, thankfully so to protect the students. Students have the right to learn in a safe environment, and scientific studies that when students a vaccinated the threat of vaccine-preventable disease is lessened.
    Good job Croatia!

    anyone who doesn't vaccinate is a misinformed idiot. shame on them.



  5. 5

    Vaccination DOES NOT cause autism.



  6. 6

    Requiring vaccinations is only controversial to misinformed idiots who think they cause autism, which they don't. The only thing that vaccines have in common with autism is that many times parents recognize signs of their child being on the spectrum around the same age that their child is getting immunized. That's like saying that I see people with umbrellas outside when it's raining and concluding that umbrellas cause rain.



  7. 7

    I am totally against it - the parents should be able to decide for their children.



  8. 8

    If my child turns out to be allergic to a component of the vaccines- and therefore cannot receive them- and they contract a deadly disease because you compromised the herd immunity with your stupid notions of immunisation causing autism, I will seriously hope you anti-vacs can live with the death of an innocent child on your conscience.

    There is no science for your unjust claims, just the word of some celebrity who, from what I can tell has no doctorates on the matter.

    You are not only putting you child at risk by not vaccinating you are putting everyone around them at risk especially young children who are not old enough to be vaccinated. VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM!

    Its a parents choice point blank period because after that where does it end??? How are we putting your kids at risk by not vaccinating if you do??? Oh yea thats right because you idiots realize VACCINES DO NOT PREVENT DISEASE!!!!! Just because your kid is vaccinated does not mean they will never get that disease you should do more reading instead of pumping everything in your kid that the govt says is good for them. Even doctors are admitting that MMR does not cause autism but can trigger a gene of autism therefore leaving your kid autistic. Irony is some of you people that are vaccinating your kids probably dont even vaccinate yourselves!!!

    SERIOUSLY, ALL OF YOU…GO DO A BIT OF RESEARCH.

    all of you are the "misinformed idiots".

    those who are vaccinated are more at risk for spreading/getting a disease than those who are unvaccinated.

    and until YOU have had a child almost die in your arms from a severe reaction to a vaccine, you have no right to a fucking opinion on the subject.

    as a mother of a vaccine injured child, i can assure you that my child will remain safe from future vaccines. every vaccinated child i've been around has been sick more often than not.

    VACCINATED does not mean IMMUNE. vaccines cause these diseases. the whooping cough outbreak in california is being blamed on the vaccine.

    and if you do a bit of research, you'll find that most of these diseases were already DECLINING before the vaccines were ever invented.

    and no, we're not all influenced by jenny. you'd be surprised how much we mothers actually care about our childrens' lives and well-being that we'd do our own research.

    Re: Jessica
    " Oh yea thats right because you idiots realize VACCINES DO NOT PREVENT DISEASE!!!!!"
    WRONG! they for sure prevent. The only one that does not is influenza vaccine. That virus has multiple mutations and variations, so each year when the health department makes the vaccine, only certain (hopefully the most dangerous) strands get covered. That is why people still get the flu even if they got the vaccine. Usually though, if they get the flu it is less severe than if they don't. Polio was an epidemic in the 1950s and that changed because of the vaccine….which PREVENTED the disease. The only reason it is coming back is because people don't vaccinate. The main problem with vaccines is that they are their own worst enemy…the reason people don't believe they need them is because measles, mumps rubella (MMR) and other childhood diseases are very uncommon. why are they uncommon? because the vaccines worked! If you lived during the 1950s when the polio outbreak happened, i think your opinion would change.

    Overall, here is the thing. Vaccines save lives. They are not perfect. But I would much rather my child have autism than die. Or be responsible for another child's death because they are unable to get vaccinated due to immunodeficiency or allergies.

    Re: kayla – They are concerned because when you spread inaccurate information, you can cause problems.
    And in response to your earlier comment "every vaccinated child i've been around has been sick more often than not. VACCINATED does not mean IMMUNE. vaccines cause these diseases. the whooping cough outbreak in california is being blamed on the vaccine. and if you do a bit of research, you'll find that most of these diseases were already DECLINING before the vaccines were ever invented."
    SHOW ME YOUR RESEARCH. Medical research follows strict guidelines which require data to not be influenced by any biases. Your data means nothing. I 100% you have not asked every child you have been around if they have been vaccinated and then checked their health records to see how many times they have been sick and/or vaccinated and then compared them to children's records who have not been vaccinated.

    Of course they're right, it's not even a freakin' debate outside the backwards bible bashing cult states of the US.

    The child's right to health surpasses the parents right to make wrong choices.

    Re: Jessica – It's not the parents choice, it's everyone else who is affected by ignorant dimwit cult members in the US and their hair brained propaganda that's making equally mentally handicapped retards the world over make stupid decisions. ALL anti-vaxxer nonsense is based off one discredited guy, Andrew Wakefield. It's ALL bollocks, and the kind of nimrods who promote anti-vaccination are cancer.

    If the parent is incompetent and cannot make the right choice it is the right of every adult to make sure that child receives the vaccinations they need and to ensure those children are taken away from that parent.

    THERE IS NO CONTROVERSY. Outside of the warped minds of mentally unstable conspiracy nutters, there is insurmountable evidence that vaccines work, are safe, and are cost effective versus ONE paper that was found to be fraudulent and entirely made up that claimed that ONE vaccines COULD cause 'autism' but was found not to during thousands of follow up tests.

    THERE IS NO CONTROVERSY OUTSIDE OF THE TWISTED MINDS OF IMBECILES. The child's right to life surpasses the parents right to make ignorant and incorrect life choices. Any non-vaccinating parent ought to have their children taken away. Ask yourself this; why does anti-vaccination ALWAYS go hand in hand with new age Christ cults in the US, muslim extremists, and zany conspiracy theoriest nutters? Why is it never rational scientists and doctors? Think.

    And these imbecile anti-vaccination twerps who claim to have 'done their research,' google isn't research, go spend eight years getting medical qualifications at university–oh wait you didn't finish high school, that might be a problem–before you think you're entitled to having an 'equal opinion' to medical professionals.

    Dunning-Kruger Effect is the name for the psychological dysfunction these people exhibit btw, look it up, it's quite insightful.

    While you're at it, google "Penn & Teller Bullshit Vaccines" and watch that Bullshit! episode, it's brilliant!

    Of course kids shouldnt suffer due to their parents stupidity. As mentioned, this is only controversial in America.

    Re: Anuschka – That's the problem, it's not a decision that stays in the family. You decide not to vaccinate your kid, your kid gets measles, then suddenly other people that CAN'T get vaccinated (babies, some seniors, people with compromised immune systems) get measles from YOUR kid because of a bad decision YOU made.

    Re: kayla – Because you misinformed idiots are spreading measles, at a huge societal cost. And you misinformed idiots are allowing your children to get measles that spreads to OTHER PEOPLE who cannot get the vaccines (babies, people with compromised immune systems, etc.) I'm not worried about your kid giving me measles because I'm a responsible, reasonable person and am vaccinated. I'm worried about YOUR KID giving MY too young to vaccinate baby measles. Kind of like your decision to drive drunk impacts other people.
