An ‘anti-vaccine’ billboard is now displayed over a heavily trafficked corner in Perth, causing a slew of controversy in the area. Residents are upset that the owner of the billboard accepted money from the “American anti-vaccine group” and they want it immediately removed. Perth’s 7News interviewed a woman who’s child was “too young to be vaccinated” for whooping cough and reportedly passed away from the illness. She says she’s extremely upset that the billboard is allowed to display in the area.
Australia is one of the most stringent, draconian vaccine areas in the world. It is surprising that a country with limitations on free speech would allow the billboard to hang. The state government is already moving to have the billboard removed. Sadly, the billboard ONLY ask if you know what is in a vaccine, it doesn’t technically discourage anyone from getting vaccinated. But that’s the place we’ve found ourselves as liberal policy continues to attack free speech. Remember, even questioning a vaccine makes you ‘anti-vaccine.’
