Jenny McCarthy’s Antivax Group Is Funding Scientific Research On Autism
In late November, a scientific publisher abruptly removed the abstract of a study from its webpage. The as-yet-unpublished research, which would have appeared in the journal Frontiers in Public Health, concluded that unvaccinated children are less likely to suffer from autism (among other ailments). The abstract was taken down after a severe Twitter backlash.
Motherboard has determined that the research in question was funded mostly by actor Jenny McCarthy’s autism awareness nonprofit, Generation Rescue. McCarthy has famously spread the dangerously inaccurate, and scientifically unsound, view that vaccines can cause autism in otherwise healthy children. (She has somewhat softened this view in recent years.)
Generation Rescue describes its goal as aiding in “recovery” of kids with autism spectrum disorders, although it is widely seen as a platform for “anti-vaxxers”—people opposed to vaccinations. Although Generation Rescue board member and co-founder J.B. Handley rejects the anti-vaxxer label, its website still includes resources on how to avoid vaccinations, for example. And the group is open to funding more research.- Source
