    Vermont Says No to the Anti-Vaccine Movement
    the state has now become the first to remove philosophical exemptions from its vaccination law…
    Vermont currently offers parents an exemption for medical conditions and one for religious beliefs. It has been one of about twenty states that allow for philosophical exemptions, and the majority of exemptions in Vermont have been for philosophical reasons.

    Not clearly stated: they eliminated the philosophical exemption, but not the religious one. This is constitutionally problematic, since it gives a clear preference to religion. Also, it’s stupid.
