    It's a slippery slope when the government gets to decide what is injected into our bodies. And that’s what Senator Hayward was pushing in Salem: government getting to make decisions about what goes into our children’s bodies. How can any thinking and reasoning human being accept this, unless they are simply taking it on faith that the authorities and drug companies, on this ONE THING, are somehow trustworthy? That’s a religious impulse, not a reasoned decision.
