comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
The Chicken Pox vaccine is an interesting edge case as it is not considered serious, and is only offered to those deemed at risk from chicken pox complications in many countries including the uk (link: nhs.uk/chq/Pages/1032.aspx?CategoryID=62&SubCategoryID=63)

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
And therein lies the problem... People generally have a poor grasp of risk and mistakenly believe that their choices are the right ones even if the data says otherwise. The likes of Robert Sears encourage (and profit heavily) from the idea that there is a debate or discussion to be had around vaccination when the numbers say there is a greater risk in travelling to or from the clinic...

comment Should I allow or forbid my son to visit the education of a religion that I do not share?
@erdekhayser - it is. There is also a distinct difference between learning about the beliefs, history and customs of a religion (which are verifiable facts) including the unpalatable or contentious parts versus a sugar coated version that attempts to encourage students to adopt that religion outside the classroom... The latter being a specific concern the OP believes to be the case and is addressed in this answer.

comment Just found out pregnant and smoked marijuana
With marijuana even in the situation where there is a risk to foetal health the last figures I can recall put them well within the bounds of statistical error (and insignificant compared to typical air pollution exposure in a US city or not having adequate access to healthcare in an emergency.) There wouldn't be any action which could be taken to reverse the damage anyway.

comment Daughter is reluctant to participate in proposed family meeting. What kinds of objections do you anticipate she has?
Nobody likes being blindsided and/or railroaded, which is usually what happens when an agenda is not clear in advance.

comment Should children be preemptively taught about drugs, alcohol, and sex?
@DevSolar I won't disagree with that, I use that approach myself. But having something important discussed in a slightly uncomfortable way is preferable to it being left to friends or the internet.

comment Repository for scientific evidence in parenting
You'd like a collection of meta studies, which wouldn't be particularly useful since you wouldn't be able to review them without having access to the journals they were published in (and in that case you can just search those). NHS Choices has a selection of topics and information on items which appear in the British media and frequently references studies, if that's useful to you?

What you've described is called a meta-study, usually they're published in Journals which you need to pay to access.
