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!'

There are no known causes for autism, and is seems to affect the affluent more, and the case numbers are increasing. But it ain't the vaccines. Churches have preached not to take vaccines. Now, there is a history of reactions to vaccines, but having a 1 in a million reaction to a vaccine vs without the vaccines having a exponentially higher rate of sterility, brain damage, loss of hearing, death....well you get the point

Autism is actually not increasing, they just changed the diaqgnostic criteria to bring more symptoms into the "autism" diagnosis. that way they can say it's increasing and generate more donations. I can't help but woner if autism might not be related to recreational drug use by the parents. It would be difficult to establish because few people would answer that question honestly.

Whenever a conservative expresses an opinion like this the left calls it a rant. When a lib does it they call it firing back. Hypocritical a-wholes.

It appears that autism starts in the womb, a time when very few children have been vaccinated. You could just as easily say that autism is caused by pablum because the symptoms of autism start to appear around the same time as the child transitions to more solid foods. Even the criminal doctor who concocted that whole vaccine/autism scam in order to sue the drug companies has recanted and is now living in the US making millions on his murderous scam. Lancet, the British publication that published the original article has withdrawn the story and the doctor was stripped of his right to practice. Check out http://tallguywrites.livejournal.com/148012.html
It's a comic book that explains the whole sad story in a form simple enough for Hollywood stars and religious nuts to understand. Murdering your child be denying him or her access to modern day medicines is really not a great option.

Well, Peter, you had me interested until you had to throw in your "religious nuts" comment. Really? Just couldn't resist throwing out your insulting opinion?
