Anti-Vaxxers: Even Your Evil Queen is Distancing Herself From Your Nuttiness
Jenny McCarthy, the Madame Curie of medical misinformation, has recently come out to explain how she really, actually , you guys, never said that vaccines are a bad thing.
“Rubella” Jenny wrote an op-ed piece decrying the fact that she has become the public face of anti-vaccine lunacy.
I am not “anti-vaccine.” This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, “pro-vaccine” and for years I have been wrongly branded as “anti-vaccine.”
For the remaining misguided anti-vaxxers reading this, you should know this isn’t my opinion. Nor is it an issue that is debated among medical doctors. The imagined link between vaccines and autism has been completely and utterly debunked thoroughly.
Now that Dr. Playmate of the Year 1993 is attempting to deny her involvement in this hoax, it will, hopefully, ring the death knell for the cult of anti-science. Jenny McCarthy denying her anti-vax history?? It would be like Pier One coming out and saying, “You know, maybe wicker’s not all that great after all.” Catch a clue, folks.
