The federal government should require children to be vaccinated and the amendments support it
As citizens of the U.S we have many laws that allow us to stay and be who we are in this country, but like many things there are limitations. One of these things include the debate of weather or not the government should require children to be vaccinated for preventable diseases. Some may say that requiring children to be vaccinated is constitutional because as the 14th amendment states that no law shall be made if it prevents a citizen from having their rights, “without due process of the law”. Therefore, in a case where a disease is presented that affects the public’s health, then the court is able to mandate that the individual receives the vaccination in order to protect the people. As a result, the law is still being followed in a way where there are steps taken to get to a decision.
