Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly attacks Jenny McCarthy

Megyn Kelly Rips Apart Jenny McCarthy

Autism activist and vaccine opponent, Jenny McCarthy, is doing a 180 on her views on vaccines.

McCarthy claims she's pro-vaccine, but she's cited them, specifically the toxins that some of them contain, as the cause of her son's own autism.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly and contributor Dana Loesch were shocked by McCarthy's sudden change and spoke passionately about the effect her original preachings as well as her stance reversal is having.

'If you're not against vaccinations you don't say things like, well, if we're going to stay in line for autism or measles we'll stay in line for measles because you're presupposing that all vaccinations are triggering autism which - you know, you're entitled to our own opinion but not your own set of facts! Science is disputing this. So this is a really serious issue and, Megyn, I know you have little ones. I have kids as well I don't want to be looked as a bad mother if there's junk science that comes out one day to the next about vaccinations. All I know, is that when I have a question about vaccination schedules I'll go to my pediatrician who has studied this!"

Kelly also noted that most of McCarthy's opposition is to the toxins in vaccines, but pointed out that McCarthy doesn't have a problem with some other toxins, like Botox and e-cigarettes.

'This is the same woman promoting e-cigarettes. You're inhaling nicotine into your body, if you want to talk about toxins! She's a big supporter of getting botox. Those are one of the most deadliest things you can inject in your body. She's for those toxins so I'm not sure where she draws the line on that. You're right. she has a position of influence and it is wrong,' Loesch says.

Kelly says McCarthy is only making pediatricians' jobs harder. 'She has such a high-profile,' Kelly said. 'She raised a lot of people's fears about this!'

"She's a big supporter of getting botox. "


Amen to that...some people get so much botox it leaks into other parts of their faces and bodies....we do not know the long-term effects of years of cosmetic usage.

Yep. And coffee, and chocolate.

And Susan - it is not the exact same thing, but it is on the same parallel.

The "news" - and I mean ALL of the stations, are soooo desperate to report bad things that they report conjecture as fact, and contradict themselves the very next day.

The benefits of vaccination out weigh the risks. Not vaccinating your children puts everyone at risk because when the disease reappears it is stronger than ever placing those who have been vacinated at a risk. It is a matter of public safety. And common sense

Guess the vaccines don't work then? Then what's the point?

When you are the parent of a child with any disability, your life will never be the one you hoped and dreamed it would be. Finding the cause and cure becomes all encompassing. I have a 22 year old son who is severely autistic and he was born this way. I do not rule out vaccines as a possible cause in some cases but please read all of the research and known facts carefully. The original study that was done in England was flawed and the doctor lost his license to practice. I implore all of us parents to stop attacking one another. We are all in this together and more can be accomplished if we respect each other and not be quick to judge and attack.

i didn't think autism could be diagnosed until at least age 2.
could it be another disease?
just asking, that's all.

The word "attack" is thrown around like it means nothing anymore.

If you get your medical advice from Jenny Mccarthy you deserve this. This is your health peope dig a little deeper!! Why not sign up for spiritual wisdom from Miley Cyrus or College choices from the Beib. They are celebrities no better but no worse then you and I. But they certainly aren't any smarter. More often then not being a celebrity you find people don't question you as much as if I was riding next to you on a bus and told you something. Just because theyre famous they doesn't make them smart. If you have a kid you ought to do a little reading or maybe talk to your own doctor
