On one hand, I have an optimistic, red-blooded American view about civic participation and the importance of people showing their power.
On the other I'm cynical because I've seen so many examples of Big Pharma rigging the game I wonder if it's worth my time because it takes a lot to organize care for my severely autistic daughter when I need to be gone for a day and there's no school.
But when the invitation came in from Joshua Coleman…
…to introduce my co-author, Dr. Judy Mikovits, at a "Stop the Hate in the Vaccine Debate" rally on the steps of the California State Capitol in Sacramento, I knew I couldn't refuse. Let me say this about Josh. I consider him to be one of the finest and most creative political activists I've ever seen.
When I arrived at the Capitol, many of our rally supporters were lining the roads with large signs, each with a specific fact about vaccines such as "VACCINES ARE MADE WITH ABORTED HUMAN FETAL CELLS." It was an impressive display. I parked my car, got my backpack, and started walking through the supporters with their signs, thanking them for coming.
