Reckless endangerment

Dear Editor,

  Two recent articles have prompted me to write.

  Clearly an individual who allows a child to fall from a motor scooter has,

I would certainly assume, underestimated the risk to another human being, despite his own expectations to avoid and to withstand misfortune.

  Clearly an individual who refuses vaccination for ideological and non-medical reasons puts a child who is currently too young to be vaccinated at an unreasonable risk.

  A civic and moral obligation must exist in our “free” society to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

  Reckless endangerment: not a healthy choice.
