We need more polio because it’s God’s Will

Polio was a devastating disease. Sometimes the virus attacked the nerves in such a manner that it paralyzed the muscles needed to breath. The icon for this disease was a child in an iron lung, a mechanical device that assisted the patient’s breathing by creating a low pressure area around the body inflating the lungs by the ambient air pressure.

Polio is not the problem it once was because of a successful world wide vaccination effort. The vaccine is believed to provide life long immunization against the virus.

Polio and other diseases were once God’s Will. You became infected or not because of God’s will. At least until some godless scientist actively working against God’s Will understood what caused the disease and developed a vaccine against it.

Pretty puny God to be defeated so easily.
