In New South Wales, Australia, unvaccinated children will be banned from childcare facilities, and centres which enrol them will face fines, after changes to the local laws passed through State cabinet (28 May 2013): Vaccinate your children or declare why not, parents told Sydney Morning Herald 29 May 2013; Big win for No Jab, No Play as NSW state cabinet approves tough new vaccination laws Alicia Wood, Jane Hansen and Leigh van den Broeke The Daily Telegraph May 29, 2013
This action follows a campaign by one of the state’s major newspapers, the Daily Telegraph (owned by News Corporation), against parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. This pro-vaccination campaign has gained the support of both the right (the government) and left wing major political parties. It allows follows one-sided reporting by other major media outlets including the major daily newspaper, the Sydney Morning Herald, whose medical writer supports vaccinations and the Channel Ten program, the Project, that recently told viewers that it would not allow anti-vaccination supporters on its program.
In such a political and media environment, it would be virtually impossible for reasoned and logical debate to occur on the matter of vaccination adverse reactions and the concern that many people have regarding the potential dangers of vaccinations.
