Mississippi Republicans are killing a bill that would take away state control over approving exemptions for vaccinations so that children can attend schools. At least the anti-vaccination idiocy is so obviously stupid and deadly that even Mississippi Republicans can realize it. Unfortunately, the Mississippi House actually passed the thing and so it will probably be back next year. Right now, Mississippi is one of only three states that does not allow a religious exemption to keeping kids safe from preventable diseases. Even so, there are way too many exemptions in Mississippi. Jenny McCarthyism still lives.
