article imageJenny McCarthy maintains anti-vaccination position

By Tim Sandle     Jan 5, 2014 in Health
Model Jenny McCarthy has stated that she plans to take legal action following a report claiming she had changed her controversial anti-vaccination stance.
According to CTV, McCarthy is of the view that her son's autism was caused by vaccines and she has said she was able to cure her son of the disorder by using alternative treatments, such as dietary changes. These views have brought her into dispute with many medics, according to USA Today.
McCarthy is angry following an article that was published by the entertainment news website Radar Online which reported that McCarthy had told Time magazine her son may not have had autism after all, and that she was changing her stance on vaccines.
In statement, quoted on Contact Music, McCarthy has said: "Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California (through their Regional Center). The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism (and instead may suffer from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome), is both irresponsible and inaccurate."
Jenny McCarthy is a U.S.model, television host, comedic actress, author, and activist. She began her career in 1993 as a nude model for Playboy magazine and was later named their Playmate of the Year. She is currently a co-host on the ABC talk show The View.
