Jessica Biel, actress and wife of Justin Timberlake, has just “come out” as an anti-vaxxer, in a surprise move that has her teaming up with know anti-vax supporter, Robert F Kennedy jr..
There had been word back in 2015 that Jess had chosen not to vaccinate her own son, Silis, who she shares with Timberlake, but this is the first we’re seeing her actually express strong feelings on the matter.
Anti-vaxxers want to be able to … well… not vaccinate their kids. But the growing number of people not vaccinating their children has some worried it will lead to major epidemics of health issues we cured a century ago.
In California they are attempting to pass a bill, (SB 276), that will attempt to combat that. The bill would require “the State Public Health Officer or the public health’s officer’s designee to approve or deny a medical exemption request, upon determining that the request provides sufficient medical evidence that the immunization is contraindicated or that a specific precaution regarding a particular immunization exists, based on guidelines of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” the bill states.
Kennedy Jr., 65, shared a slideshow of photos of himself and Biel, 37, posing alongside activists and legislators.
“Please say thank you to the courageous @jessicabiel for a busy and productive day at the California State House,” Kennedy Jr. wrote of the actress.
