I'm wondering why are childhood cases of whooping cough (pertussis) in children on the rise?

In brief: Deadly choice

Cases of whooping cough (pertussis) have increased in the us from ~2500 in the mid 90s to over 15000 per year due to increases in unvaccinated infants and children.
This is primarily due to the public's mistrust of vaccines after some fraudulent research suggesting linkage to autism. Various celebrities have promoted this fiction.As a result more than 30 babies die/yr from whooping cough.
