A Washington state House committee on Friday passed a bill to ban the personal or philosophical exemption for the vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) for school-age kids amid an outbreak of the virus.
The bill passed through the state’s Health Care and Wellness Committee, despite opposition from critics who say parents should have a right to choose whether to vaccinate their kids, The Seattle Times reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
All nine Democrats on the committee voted to advance the bill, as well as the bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Paul Harris, the only Republican to support it.
