Dr. Jeffrey A. Singer on Vaccination and Free Choice

SyringeIn the 2002 sci-fi noir film Minority
, PreCrime, a specialized police agency,
apprehends people who are forecast to commit crimes. No trial is
necessary because the not-yet-committed crime is considered a
vision of the future and thus a matter of fact. The film’s plot
challenges viewers to consider the issue of free will vs.
determinism, and consequently, the morality of punishing someone
for a crime not yet committed. It serves as a useful metaphor for
the argument against coercive vaccination, writes Dr. Jeffrey A.
Singer. That’s because, while some argue that unvaccinated people
will endanger the life and health of innocent bystanders, such a
position requires infallible precognition.
