As the battle of whether or not to vaccinate rages on, actress Kirsten Bell, the voice of Anna in Frozen, is taking a stand and speaking out.
Bell and her husband, actor Dax Shepard, have two young daughters so the vaccination debate is a major issue for their family's health. Bell is taking a stand in favor of vaccination to protect her kids and if that isolates her from unvaccinated friends, so be it.
“When Lincoln was born (in March 2013), the whooping cough epidemic was growing, and before she was 2 months old, we simply said (to friends), ‘You have to get a whooping cough vaccination if you are going to hold our baby," said Bell. “It’s a very simple logic: I believe in trusting doctors, not know-it-alls."
Though her message may seem harsh, it's one that many parents are choosing to send, especially since the recent outbreak of measles in California.
Where do you stand on the vaccination debate? Do you think Kristen Bell is being too paranoid or making a smart decision for her family?
