Jessica Biel Timberlake spent her Tuesday lobbying 15 legislators against supporting a California vaccination bill alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at the California State Assembly and State Senate in Sacramento.
The 65-year-old anti-vaxxer called the 37-year-old actress 'courageous' for urging lawmakers like Democratic Assemblywoman Autumn Burke to oppose SB 276, a bill limiting medical exemptions from vaccinations without approval from a state public health officer.
'[Jessica] is upset about this issue because of its particular cruelty. She has friends who have been vaccine-injured who would be forced to leave the state,' Kennedy - who's married to Cheryl Hines - explained to The Daily Beast on Wednesday.

'The biggest problem with the bill, which is something I think Jessica is concerned with is that a doctor who has made a determination - if he has found children in this state whose doctors have determined that they're too fragile to receive vaccinations - this bill would overrule the doctors and force them to be vaccinated anyways.'

The scientific consensus is that vaccines do NOT cause autism, but Robert proudly chairs the Children's Health Defense - which alleges a government conspiracy that vaccines 'cause autism, ADHD, food allergies, cancer, and autoimmune diseases.'
