Amanda Peet on Autism

Amanda Peet Defends Her Stance on Vaccines

Telling Cookie magazine that parents who don't vaccinate their children are parasites has brought a lot of negative press to Amanda Peet. The mother of 18–month–old Frankie denies any connection between autism and vaccines. In a star war of sorts, actress Jenny McCarthy, mother to autistic son Evan, is in the opposite camp that believes the two are linked.

Amanda's critics claim she hasn't done the research to know enough about an undeniable link, but if you listen to her Good Morning America interview, you may find she knows a thing or two. Whether you agree with her or not, that's a different story. She is set to hold a press conference with the American Academy of Pediatrics later today.

What's your take on the issue?
