"Providing natural immunity" to chickenpox

Here’s something that may shock you. Despite that we have a great vaccine against chickenpox, some people think it’s a fabulous idea to infect their kids with this disease on purpose.

What do you think? “Natural immunity” somehow better than a relatively safe vaccine?

The parents boasted about how they were giving their children “natural immunity”. This harmless disease can cause skin infections, scarring, nervous system and brain damage and even death.

Why would people do this to their children — and then proudly post photos of it on the net, of their kids covered with pustules?

I’m baffled, outraged, and grossed out.

What the hell is wrong with people?

Note: Here’s an article from The other side if you want to see their arguments.
