Jessica Biel Seemingly Lobbies Against Vaccines with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Jessica Biel Seemingly Lobbies Against Vaccines with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

UPDATE: Jessica has broken her silence on this news and clarified that she’s “not against vaccinations.”

Jessica Biel joined activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to lobby against California state bill SB 276 on Tuesday (June 11) during a visit to the California State Capitol in Sacramento, Calif.

RFK Jr. is known for being anti-vaccines and he praised Jessica in an Instagram post that highlighted their visit with lawmakers.

“Please say thank you to the courageous @jessicabiel for a busy and productive day at the California State House,” Robert captioned the below Instagram post.

While there have been unconfirmed reports that Jessica and husband Justin Timberlake do not plan on vaccinating their kids, she has never spoken publicly on the topic. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Kennedy would not align her with the anti-vaxx movement.

“I would say that she was for safe vaccines and for medical freedom,” he said. “My body, my choice.”

“The biggest problem with the bill, which is something I think Jessica is concerned with, is that a doctor who has made a determination—if he has found children in this state whose doctors have determined that they’re too fragile to receive vaccinations—this bill would overrule the doctors and force them to be vaccinated anyways,” he added. “She was a very effective advocate. he was very strong and very knowledgeable. Extremely well-informed. An extremely effective advocate. She knows what she’s talking about…She’s upset about this issue because of its particular cruelty. She has friends who have been vaccine-injured who would be forced to leave the state.”

Kennedy said that he and Jessica met with about 15 legislators during their visit, but would not confirm who they were.

    They actually said she was for safe vaccines. She wanted to make sure there would be medical exceptions. And no one knows if their son has been vaccinated or not. He has been to other countries though and some you have to be vaccinated to enter.

    Vaccines are safe and not vaccinating damages herd immunity and puts other people/children at risk. She is dumb as dirt for doing this. Not vaccinating is parental negligence. There are medical exceptions already — decided by doctors. Not stupid rich white women with no sense.

    All the people screaming “VACCINES ARE SAFE” literally couldn’t name not ONE ingredient in those “safe” vaccines if their lives depended on it. Not against vaccines, but I can see why some people would have trepidations

    What is the lesser of evils here? Not vaccinating leads not only your child but other children prone to infection. It is not a matter of medical autonomy, it’s a matter of not killing your child and not putting others at risk. Vaccinations have side effects but what are the alternatives? Most of us would be dead by now without medical intervention
