Tell Jim Carrey That He's Wrong About Vaccines and Autism

Kristina Chew started this petition to c/o BetterU Jim Carrey and

Actor Jim Carrey recently wrote an article in The Huffington Post, "The Judgment on Vaccines Is In???" in which he stated that "We don't know enough to announce that all vaccines are safe" and  that further research about a possible vaccine-autism link is necessary.  Further research has and is being done, and the scientific evidence refuting a hypothetical link between vaccines and autism is steadily accruing. Nonetheless, this particular issue continues to hold the attention of the public and of parents who have become fearful of vaccinating their young children. All the publicity surrounding the claims of a vaccine-autism link has diverted attention and energy away from focusing on issues of pressing importance to individuals on the autism spectrum including education and schools, services, employment, and housing.

Ask Jim Carrey to reconsider his statements about vaccines and autism and, if he wishes to advocate for autism, to rather direct his energies to support services and education  for individuals on the autism spectrum.  


Kevin Leitch has written an open letter to Jim Carrey;  Liz Ditz at I Speak of Dreams has a list of blogs offering more commentary.
