Private Practice, Public Health, and the Autism/Vaccine Debate
The episode featured a mother with three sons, and the oldest was autistic. Blaming the MMR vaccine for her child's autism, she chose not to vaccinate her two other sons. An unvaccinated son picks up measles while the family is in Switzerland seeking autism treatment, exposes the entire practice when he comes in, and dies at the end of the episode.

Parents have the right to make choices for their children, but they don't have an inalienable right to expose other people's children to deadly diseases. And if it takes a bunch of hot faux doctors to get that message out, so be it.
