Impressive that in 2019 some people in the US still believe in “sorcery”. That says a lot about the level of anti-vax people…
An anti-vaxxer Texas lawmaker is facing criticism for attacking a prominent vaccinologist and branding inoculations “sorcery.”
Republican Rep. Jonathan Stickland—who left the hardline conservative Freedom Caucus last week—began a Twitter spat with Peter Hotez, a professor at the Baylor College of Medicine, on Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Hotez had been lamenting an increase in vaccine exemptions, which he said put children “in harm’s way for the financial gain of special and outside interest groups.” But Stickland accused Hotez of hypocrisy and suggested that parental rights to reject vaccinations were paramount.
