New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, both potential Republican candidates, waded into the debate on Monday, saying parents should have a say in whether to vaccinate their kids. The remarks were not a departure from previously stated positions, but in light of the current measles outbreak, they drew widespread attention — and criticism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting 102 confirmed measles cases spread across 14 states, which follows last year’s record outbreak in which 644 cases were diagnosed across 27 states — the largest outbreak since the virus was declared eliminated in 2000.

On Tuesday, Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon and conservative advocate who is considering a White House run, weighed in on the other side. While saying there are “exceptional situations” that should be heard and he strongly believes in individual rights, Carson said, “I also recognize that public health and public safety are extremely important in our society.” He said in a statement: “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.”

Barb Heki, a leader in Iowa’s home-school advocacy network, said such parents “adhere to the idea that it’s the parents’ right to make the decision on vaccinations. “More important than a candidate’s stance on vaccinations, I’m more concerned for parents’ rights to make decisions about their own children, period,” she said. “That’s paramount.”

Louise Kuo Habakus, a radio host who runs a nonprofit group opposed to state-required vaccinations, said she helped arrange a meeting between parents and Christie on the issue in 2009 and saluted him for standing up for the “rights of parents to direct the health, welfare and upbringing of their children.” “He’s been absolutely constant and I believe courageous and principled on this issue,” she said.

In my opinion I see where parents come from when they are worried if their kids are protected at school, on the other hand should we be forced to do something we don’t want to do? To end this controversy, there should be more research into if the vaccines are safe and if every vaccine is necessary. I’m on the fence about the matter, but my children were vaccinated when they were little. Do you agree with Paul and Christie?
