NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Three of the most high-profile advocates for the vaccine risk awareness movement, including powerhouse Jenny McCarthy and legal eagle Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., will appear on Thursday's special episode of "The HighWire with Del Bigtree," the weekly fact-based health and wellness news series announced today.
Streaming live from New York City at 2pm EST, Bigtree will speak with celebrity Autism mom, Jenny McCarthy, and author, J.B. Handley, on Handley's groundbreaking book released today, How to End the Autism Epidemic, an in-depth look at the three most compelling and persuasive points in the debate over autism's cause.
Thursday's episode capitalizes upon the fresh momentum stemming from Bigtree's non-profit Informed Consent Action Network's (ICAN) paradigm-shifting legal victory in July against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Guests scheduled to appear on Thursday's episode are:
> Jenny McCarthy — Actress, SiriusXM Radio host, mother of a formerly autistic son, and the best-known face of the vaccine risk awareness movement reemerges with her first appearance on "The HighWire." She will discuss why she is returning now to the public stage to champion her signature cause.
> J.B. Handley — Stanford-educated entrepreneur and author has penned the game-changing new book "How To End The Autism Epidemic," which compiles new scientific evidence about vaccines and includes court documents which reveal details about the Department of Justice's handling of recent cases.
> Rolf Hazelhurst — Assistant District Attorney General of Tennessee and father of an autistic child, whose 2009 landmark vaccine injury case against the US Government set precedent for every future case. Hazelhurst is currently pursuing a new suit to overturn the DOJ's judgment in the landmark case saying, "I've put 7 people in prison on far less evidence."
> Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. — Attorney, author and activist, fresh off a landmark $289 million win against Monsanto's product Roundup, now focusing his attention as an advocate in the Hazelhurst case. For Kennedy it's the next step since his meeting at the National Institutes of Health with CDC and FDA officials arranged by President Trump.
"We are honored to have all of these guests at such an inflection point for our movement, which is gathering strength and credibility with the general public by the day through facts, science, truth and the American legal system," says Bigtree. "The truth will out, and a new generation of children will be saved."
The 1986 National Childhood Vaccination Injury Act granted economic immunity to pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injuries. The 1986 Act shifted financial liability for vaccine injuries to the U.S. Government which has since 1986 paid over $3.9 billion for serious vaccine injuries.
