The unwelcome return of polio

Fr. Ranhilio Callangan Aquino

Polio is, regrettably, back, and unless a combined effort of the public and the government picks up pace in the direction of immunization we may see a coming generation plagued and stunted by this debilitating health scourge. It is with the ethical and legal issues that I am concerned. More and more parents, it has been reported, not only here but even abroad, are refusing to submit their children to vaccinations, many times on the basis of some unconfirmed suspicion of some link between vaccines and autism.
