Vaccination free pdf Excerpt from Vaccination: Its Necessity, Control, Efficiency, and Safety In America, the demagogue is ready to proclaim that all such measures are contrary to the genius of our form of government. Let us dwell for a while upon this objection. "The assumption that the individual has the right to protect, or abuse and neglect, his own health at pleasure, is false in morals, and, as we believe, equally in opposition to the social and statutory law. And, as a numerous population is of the highest importance to the strength and welfare of a nation, it should be the anxious study of legislators to favor that end by the enactment of such laws as will best protect the health and lives of the people. It is a well known fact in the economy of population, that the conditions which most favor the multiplication of the human species are health, the enjoyment of peace, and an abundance of food- and, per contra, of necessity, the conditions which most seriously retard the increase of population are pestilence, war, and scarcity of food. "The Eastern nations were, from the earliest ages of historic record, visited by occasional pestilential plagues, so terribly devastating in their career as almost to depopulate whole cities and extensive districts of country. Yet historians do not hesitate to say that, vast as was the mortality from the plague, it was even exceeded by that of small-pox. Up to the last one hundred and fifty years it was the most frequent, the most fatal, and the most injudiciously treated of all the pestilences that have afflicted mankind. Notwithstanding the accumulated experience of practice, the medical profession during all that time had discovered neither preventive nor cure, remaining a sad spectator of its desolations, and utterly unable to afford relief. It defied alike the measures devised by civil rulers, and the appliances of medical science, continuing for ages unimpeded in its work of death and disfigurement. " There may be some diversity of opinion as to the steps proper and necessary to be taken to secure every individual in society the full protection which a successful vaccination gives against variola, though to our minds it is clearly a question to be settled by our legislators, upon the principle that it is their duty to secure the greatest good to the greatest number. In this particular instance all would be benefited, and none injured. With us the belief had become prevalent that the temper of the American people would not tolerate any interference on the part of government in matters of a purely personal and domestic character. The experiences of the last few years, however, shows us to be as submissive to the will of rulers and governments as any people on earth. There is not only wisdom, but a necessity, for a people loving liberty and cherishing independence, to guard with jealous care every encroachment upon their political rights and constitutional privileges- but it is believed that similar reasons would not be urged or found pertinent against hygienic measures, which aim to secure the health of the individual, while equally protecting that of the whole community.
