    • This is so sad. I think it is interesting how this group values the polygamy practice for older men, rather than investing in their future. I had never heard of these boys and I thank you for bringing this issue to light. I hope that raising awareness will help these unfortunate children and young men receive more support and lead to bigger change. I could not find many articles on this subject that I think would help you. However, if you were able to include more testimony from these boys, it would add an entirely new level of depth to this article.

    • Ruby, I feel vaccines really help the population and should be taken when possible. If they are helping decrease the diseases or viruses that are not happening maybe they should be mandatory. If it’s linking to other causes of things and it’s not really showing a large number or increase for certain things the vaccinations are defiantly the way to go. It would seem taking the vaccination is doing more good then harm.
