Defending Vaccines: Actress Dispels Link To Autism:
My newfound respect for Amanda Peet keeps increasing.
Instead of spreading fear and junk science about vaccinations like Jenny McCarthy, Amanda Peet us speaking out in favor of vaccinating children and actually has a prominent doctor backing her up.
After her baby was born in early 2007, she decided to speak out publicly. Since then, she’s been advocating vaccination through interviews, talk show appearances, and public service announcements.
But Peet says parents shouldn’t look to her as a scientific expert. She defers scientific questions to Offit, who directs the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital.
And who does Jenny McCarthy have backing up her ridiculous claims?
That’s what I thought.
