(Children would not be immediately forced to get the vaccine - the bill would require a second exemption from the Department of Health to bypass vaccination). "In May, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Joseph P. Kennedy and Maeve Kennedy McKean publicly stated that their relative 'has helped to spread risky misinformation over social media and is complicit in sowing distrust of the science behind vaccines'". Nor does the fact that, as everyone learned on Thursday, actress Jessica Biel counts herself among his allies.

In another photo, Kennedy and Biel posed with Democratic Assembly member Autumn Burke, with Biel commenting: "Great meeting with both of you today". If it were to pass, the bill would reduce medical exemptions from vaccines that don't have approval from state public health officers. "I would say that she was for safe vaccines and for medical freedom", he said before adding his group's rallying cry of "my body, my choice". "I support children getting vaccinations and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians".

"So Jessica Biel is an anti-vaxx activist... she's canceledt [sic], next", one person tweeted, while another person shared Jessica and Robert's photo and wrote, "I'm so exhausted of the anti-vaxx stupidity".

NASA to allow tourists on ISS in 2020
Nasa said that private astronauts would be permitted to travel to the ISS for up to 30 days, travelling on U.S. spacecraft. The bulk of the bill for would-be space tourists will be an estimated $58 million for a round-ticket seat on a space taxi.

"This week I went to Sacramento to talk to legislators in California about a proposed bill", Biel wrote on Instagram.

According to the Los Angeles Times, officials estimate that about 40% of the 11,500 medical exemptions requested each year would be denied under the bill, which is now under review. "Thank you to everyone who met with me this week to engage in this important discussion!"

In 2015, a source told InTouch Weekly that Biel "feels that vaccination could cause complications". The bill follows SB 277, a 2015 bill that removed personal belief exemptions to vaccination requirements for schools and daycare centers in California. On the note of disease outbreaks, a third fan dragged Jessica's husband into the mix: "Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, and his wife Jessica Biel wants to bring measles back".
