Jessica Biel lobbies with vaccination skeptic Robert Kennedy

Jessica Biel Came Out As An Anti-Vaxxer And People Aren’t Happy

"The biggest problem with the bill, which is something I think Jessica is concerned with", Kennedy said, "is that a doctor who has made a determination - if he has found children in this state whose doctors have determined that they're too fragile to receive vaccinations - this bill would overrule the doctors and force them to be vaccinated anyways". Not because I don't believe in vaccinations, but because I believe in giving doctors and the families they treat the ability to decide what's best for their patients and the ability to provide that treatment.

SB 276 would require the State Department of Public Health to develop a statewide standardized medical exemption request form made available for use by licensed physicians and surgeons. Some used Timberlake's own song lyrics ("it's gonna be measles", "I'm bring measles back", etc.) to mock the former 7th Heaven star, while other critics accused her of rejecting science and putting children's lives at risk by "spreading incorrect and unsafe information".

Biel came to join the lobby against SB 276, a state bill criticised by anti-vaccination advocates like Kennedy.

In another photo, Kennedy and Biel posed with Democratic Assembly member Autumn Burke, with Biel commenting: "Great meeting with both of you today". It's awesome to have fantastic partners and advocates for parental rights like her!

According to the Los Angeles Times, officials estimate that about 40% of the 11,500 medical exemptions requested each year would be denied under the bill, which is now under review. The state also would keep a database of approved exemption requests.

US women's soccer coach Jill Ellis said her players didn't consider pulling back because it would disrespect their opponent. Perhaps the only thing better than a summer afternoon watching the Women's World Cup is packing to see it in person.

In 2015, Kennedy compared child vaccinations to the "holocaust" in blaming inoculations on an increase in autism. "She's upset about this issue because of its particular cruelty".

Biel then went on to explain that her "concern" regarding the bill was "solely regarding medical exemptions".

Kennedy also said that Biel has had friends leave the state because they have been "vaccine-injured".

California health officials estimate that 40 percent of waiver requests will be denied, the Los Angeles Times reported. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), has claimed that unscrupulous doctors are granting exemptions for profit and under pressure from influential individuals.

The California Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, California and Vaccinate California co-sponsored the bill.
