17 Celebrities Who Have Questionable Ideas On Vaccinations
Jenny McCarthy is quite possibly one of the largest celebrity voices in the anti-vaccine movement. She married actor John Mallory Asher in September of 1999. The couple, now divorced have one son together, Evan. When her son was two-years-old, and it was time for his vaccinations, McCarthy said that she had read an article inÂ Time magazine about a possible link between vaccines and autism. She said that she told her son’s doctor that she did not want him to receive the MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine. However, her husband persisted and signed the paperwork for the child to get vaccinated. McCarthy says that her son was diagnosed with autism in 2005. She believes it was a result of the vaccine. She has written three books on the subject.
