“This morning in Sacramento with heroic Democratic Assemblywoman Autumn Burke and Jessica Biel.” Robert F. Kennedy Jr

Kennedy Jr., an environmental activist whose recent work has focused increasingly on baseless allegations that vaccines are unsafe and can injure a statistically minuscule population of "medically fragile" children, appeared at the California State Assembly beside an unlikely scene partner: actress Jessica Biel.

Jessica Biel said she's "not against vaccinations" following a backlash after reports surfaced she joined anti-vaccination proponents to oppose a vaccine bill in California.

As noted by The Daily Beast, vaccination advocates claim SB 276 "will have minimal impact on those with valid reasons for exemption, citing medical authorities like the bill's prominent co-sponsors: the California Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, California".

Jessica Biel reveals she regrets something from her past.

Biel, in an Instagram post Thursday morning including a photo in front of the Capitol, rejected that label while acknowledging that she made the trip to express her "concern" with SB 276 and its intricacies.

When asked to describe Biel's involvement, Kennedy Jr. explained to The Daily Beast the actress is "for safe vaccines and for medical freedom".

The airline initially canceled flights for the Boeing 737's through August 19, but has chose to extend the cancellation. Grounded WestJet Boeing 737 Max aircraft are shown at the airline's facilities in Calgary on May 7.

Taking a controversial stance: Jessica Biel Timberlake (L) spent her Tuesday lobbying 15 legislators against supporting a California vaccination bill alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

"Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, and his wife Jessica Biel wants to bring measles back", one user wrote. (Children would not be immediately forced to get the vaccine - the bill would require a second exemption from the Department of Health to bypass vaccination). She's likely keen to dispense with the issue at this point and return to quiet life, but Jezebel reports word from an anonymous legislature staffer who suggests that Biel's talk of "dearest friends" might actually be something that she experienced personally. Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy, launched the Children's Health Defense (CHD), an extension of his World Mercury Project, which studied the safety of vaccines.

"Not because I don't believe in vaccinations, but because I believe in giving doctors and the families they treat the ability to decide what's best for their patients and the ability to provide that treatment", the "7th Heaven" star shared.

"I am not against vaccinations", she posted to Instagram.

"And because of people like your friends child is why everyone else SHOULD vaccinate their children", argued another critic.
