The notorious anti-vaccine activist Barbara Loe Fisher filed a lawsuit against pediatric immunologist and vaccine developer Dr. Paul Offit, writer Amy Wallace, and Wired magazine publisher CondÃ© Nast for an article in Wired wherein Wallace quoted Dr. Offit saying of Fischer, "She lies."
Dr. Offit is a pediatrician in Philadelphia who has drawn criticism for his profitable, life-saving pharmaceutical innovations and his stance against ignorant anti-vaccine activists like Jenny McCarthy in his 2008 book Autism's False Profits: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure.
"The anti-vaccine crowd is now trying to limit free speech," says ACSH's Jeff Stier. "Barbara Loe Fisher is the ringleader of all anti-vaccine activists. Without a strong legal defense fund, we'll end our comments here, but you know what we are thinking."
