Global: If it helps people, we’re against it!

March 5, 2013

Efforts like the one being led by Bill Gates and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg have reduced the number of children paralyzed by the polio virus from 350,000 in 1998 to fewer than 225 cases in 2012.

But the last remnants of the the debilitating disease must be wiped out in Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, or else it will make a comeback.

Radical Islamic militants are preventing that from happening by attacking clinics, health workers, and police who travel with vaccinators to administer the vaccine to children.

And by ‘attacking’ they mean ‘killing’.

Perhaps we should concentrate on eradicating the religious virus first; that would make everything that follows so much easier.
