Rep. Barry Loudermilk Boasts About Refusing To Vaccinate His Kids
At a town hall meeting in his district in Georgia last week, Republican Rep. Barry Loudermilk claimed that he and his wife decided against vaccinating their “very healthy” children and said that he is against requiring children to receive vaccinations.
“I believe it’s a parents decision whether they immunize or not,” he said in remarks first noted by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “We didn’t immunize and they’re very healthy, of course, in homeschooling we didn’t have to get the mandatory immunizations.”
Loudermilk also said that as chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight in the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, he would consider holding hearings on a questioner’s allegation that the CDC “falsified data” on the safety of vaccines.
