At Psychology Today Blogs, David Kyle Johnson explores the hypocrisy and fallacy of anti-vaxxers “my body, my choice” sloganeering. A snippet (emphasis added):
What’s ironic is that, by hijacking the “my body, my choice” mantra in an effort to catch the pro-choice crowd in a contradiction, the anti-vax crowd has instead caught itself in one. If it is moral to put others in harm’s way to avoid the minor inconvenience and non-existent risk of vaccination, it is undoubtedly moral to do so to avoid the major inconvenience and actual risks of pregnancy. If you are for a person’s right to choose to refuse the vaccine, you must be for a woman’s right to refuse pregnancy. Since such a large portion of the anti-vax crowd is not only staunchly on the right, but has spent years arguing against abortion, all they have done is expose their own hypocrisy.
