Should this Anti-Vacc activist be welcomed into Australia?

To be honest, I don't think people who hold dangerous views and wish to broadcast those views by holding seminars should be allowed to do so. It doesn't infringe on freedom of speech. Freedom of speech just means that a person can't be imprisoned for expressing said beliefs.
I don't agree with her not being allowed to enter the country, but she should not be allowed to hold talks about a topic that essentially encourages people to put their own children and other people at risk. People like that don't deserve a platform. Anyway, it won't stop her from finding other ways.

Until the public health system collapses under the weight of diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
I get what you are saying, I do, I just don't see how this person could be stopped, and it would just buy into the tin hat brigades belief that vax is all about `big pharma' and government control.

Should she be welcomed - not if you mean getting a red carpet out and a ticker tape parade but I don't think she should be forbidden from entering either. That would smack of censorship and as a general rule I do not advocate censorship. Far better to provide forums where public debate that includes leading scientists/immunologists on the matter where her 'arguments' can be torn to shreds publicly and openly.
I thought this was kind of funny

But, it is still essentially denying her right of entry based on her belief. By all means they should state clearly that she is an osteopath and not actually qualified to speak on vaccinations.

One of the biggest problems with anti-vaccers is that for a lot of them, it is the risks associated with vaccinating that is the problem. As in, it is true that vaccinating causes some risks.
However, they are equatable with the risk of being hit by a car every time you cross a road, and I bet all the anti-vaccers do this somewhat daily.
