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!'

Parents who do not vaccinate their children, should be held accountable, for the illness and disease their children spread to other children, then it would not be so cute or funny. If you don't vaccinate, and your child gives a disease to another child, and it kills that child, the parents of the unvaccinated child, should be held accountable.

Silly Jenny. Don't you know Obama is the cause of autism?

What do you expect from an air head celb, who is more worried about what dress to wear, than vaccinating her child, so he/she does not give other children diseases.

McCarthy is a colossal twit who knows absolutely nothing about how vaccines function or are manufactured; she proved it in her idiotic comments to Megan Kelly. They are so disjointed one has to wonder if Jenny baby has ever taken a science course. The sad part is that gullible women will somehow give her some kind of credence and choose to leave their children unprotected from lethal diseases. The comments about "toxins" that Jenny has allowed to be placed in her own body in an attempt to appear younger and more sensuous is correct. One should also add silicone to the list for this huge hypocrite.

One of the few times I watched the View was when they were talking about e cigerettes and wouldn't you know that Jenny sat there silent. She couldn't risk her endorsement money.

This is a perfect example why entertainers should entertain and keep their opinions to themselves on professional issues and politics. They live for the fame and the fad without considering the ramifications of what they spew to an uninformed or uneducated public.

Any parent who is going to have a ditz like McCarthy influence their decision on whether to vaccinate their children or not, is not qualified to be a parent in the first place.

Well said, and all too true. Jenny's children are probably being raised by nannies the vast majority of the time anyway while she desperately tries to rekindle her dying career. J's child with the supposed autism may well have acquired that condition from J's own habits during gestation.

Hi Nancy! April 16 2014 at 11:55 PM

Ummm...let's see. Jenny McCarthy - uneducated actress. Megyn Kelly - educated lawyer
It doesn't take a whole lot of brain cells to figure out which blonde has the accurate story.
By the way, all you anti-vaccination lunatics, have you heard about the return of measles?
And which state has the most cases? California! Gotta love it when people listen to idiot actors!

McCarthy is an idiot and so are those that believe in no vaccination because of her reasons. I will agree that there could be some complications in a few do to some sort of allergic reaction, but after YEARS of vaccinations in everyone, that's far and in between. Once some diseases start showing up all over again, then I guess you'll care.
