The GOP Is the Anti-Vaxx Party Now

Sophie Weiner writing at Splinter News:

Six states now have bills authored by Democrats that would make forgoing vaccines for children more difficult. In nearly all of those states, which include Colorado, Arizona, New Jersey, Washington, New York, and Maine, the bills have faced Republican opposition. Meanwhile, in West Virginia and Mississippi, the GOP has introduced bills that would loosen childhood vaccine laws.
[…]
Looks like the GOP is fine with pseudoscience fueling a pandemic of preventable illness! Who woulda thought! As fewer parents vaccinate their children, measles outbreaks have become a bigger problem. In 2019, there have already been 555 cases across the country, just 19 years after the disease was eradicated.

Sad.
