California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed a groundbreaking law in California that requires all children to get certain vaccines before attending Californian schools.
“The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect against a number of infectious and dangerous diseases. While it’s true that no medical intervention is without risk, the evidence shows that immunization powerfully benefits and protects the community,” Governor Brown said after signing the legislation.
To some, however, the science isn’t clear. Ironically though, the science is never unclear to the scientists. It is unclear to the musicians, politicians, and…actors.
Like, say, actor Jim Carrey.
He insists he is not anti-vaccine, all making some pretty impassioned arguments…against…vaccines??
Also here are some conspiracy theories!!
To back up his bizarre claims, he links us to this documentary…
…that is so URGENT for the public health that viewing it costs $19.99 with the option of donating to the “Age of Autism” which is an anti-vaccine organization.
You can also donate to this guy —
— who is a pediatrician known for his “alternative” vaccine views (he doesn’t characterize them like as “anti-vaccine”) and a vocal opponent of California’s vaccination legislation.
Carrey insists that he isn’t anti-vaccine, but then why is he connecting us to organizations and individuals that oppose vaccinations??
But wait, our boy Jim isn’t done with his rant yet.
Still not done…
It’s starting to get a ‘lil awkward…
Maybe he is practicing for a new ‘Dumb and Dumber’ movie??
