More Press Failure

So the Republicans think that vaccinating children should be an option, not a requirement for living in a modern society.

For example, here's Wisconsin state representative Sean Duffy:
"...I do think we want to make sure we continue to let parents make these decisions for their kids. I think it's a slippery slope when we let the state get so involved with our children."
So presumably he's also against mandatory child seats and seat belts for kids in cars, not to mention mandatory bicycle helmets for young children while bicycling, and mandatory life jackets for young children out on the water in boats?

Needless to say, the feckless interviewer didn't follow up with these obvious examples of the state ensuring protections for children, asking for Mr. Duffy's opinion of those requirements.
