Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made headlines on Monday when he spoke out against mandatory vaccinations. The activist and nephew of John F. Kennedy joined people who oppose school-attendance vaccination requirements in New Jersey, reports the AP. He said, "All of the studies show the primary reason people don't vaccinate -- the primary reason -- is mistrust of the regulators. The solution to this problem, to the extent that it's a problem in New Jersey, is to restore the regulatory process, not to compel people to do something that they may feel they have very good reason not to do."
Kennedy is not the only celebrity to oppose vaccinations in some capacity. Here is a list of 10 prominent celebrities who question vaccination.
1. Jenny McCarthy: The former Playboy model, "View" host and current star of "Wahlburgers" claims she is not anti-vaccine, but had this to say in a Huffington Post op-ed in 2010:
"Time magazine's article on the autism debate reports that the experts are certain 'vaccines don't cause autism; they don't injure children; they are the pillar of modern public health.'
I say, 'that's a lie and we're sick of it.'"
