Angry Parent's Facebook Post About Their Daughter Getting Measles Calls Out Anti-Vaxxers

This rageful parent's emotional post about their daughter getting measles is as relevant a reminder to anti-vaxxers today, as it was, when it was posted back in 2015. The news is riddled with accounts of a measles outbreak, and the anti-vaxxers are being called out with renewed passion for their part in the upsurge of cases. Maybe this post will make a splash in the social media space, and inspire further discussion about the impacts of vaccination, or NOT vaccinating your children.
