Vaccine-Skeptic Just Means Anti-Vaxx | Circa June 21, 2019

Why Jessica Biel, Marianne Williamson and others can’t be “skeptical” of proven facts.

Earlier this week, Marianne Williamson, one of too many 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, told a crowd of her supporters in New Hampshire that mandatory vaccination is “draconian” and “Orwellian,” and she co-opted pro-choice rhetoric to describe her position.“The U.S. government doesn’t tell any citizen, in my book, what they have to do with their body or their child,” Williamson said.

The next day, Williamson walked back the comparison via tweeted screenshot, saying that she misspoke and that she was sorry to have made comments that “sounded as though [she] questioned the validity of lifesaving vaccines.” […]

“When people look at those data and say they don’t believe them, they’re not vaccine skeptics anymore; they’re vaccine cynics,” says Offit. “I would argue they’re vaccine conspiracy theorists.”
