Is Former ‘Teen Mom’ Star Farrah Abraham An Anti-Vaxxer?
Farrah Abraham may have just gone a little too far for some Teen Mom fans. Jessica Biel surprised the world recently when she took a stand against vaccinations. The actress joined a group of lobbyists to fight a new law in California that supported vaccinating children from diseases, such as the measles. While Biel’s stance shocked her fanbase, she is not the only person on television that supports the anti-vaccination movement.
Farrah Abraham speaks out against vaccinations
Abraham recently talked about the anti-vaxxers and admitted that she completely agrees with their ideology. In fact, not only does she think that people should not be vaccinating their children, but she oddly compared her argument to the abortion debate — at least when it comes to free choice.
“I think it’s all good with the anti-vaccinations,” Abraham shared.
] Abraham admitted that she debated whether or not to get her daughter, Sophia, vaccinated against life-threatening diseases. The reality star worried about her daughter getting sick, despite the very real risk of her contracting a disease that the vaccinations would prevent.
She then stated that children sometimes die after being vaccinated, though she failed to mention that many of these deaths are because of an allergy to the medications.
Farrah Abraham believes vaccinations should not be required
At the end of the day, Abraham thinks that the decision to vaccinate should be left up to the parents. She even compared the issue to how women should have the right to choose when it comes to abortion.
For Abraham, she believes that parents should only vaccinate when they feel like it will benefit their family. She also said that she agrees with everything that Biel has been doing and that the new law in California, which would prevent people from denying vaccinations based on believes, should not be passed.
After she made headlines, Biel attempted to clear the air about her stance against vaccinations. The actress told her followers on social media that she fully supports vaccinations for children. But, like Farrah Abraham, Biel feels as though parents should be able to decide if their kids get vaccinated or not.
For Biel, the debate is more about parental rights than anything else, at least that’s what she tried to argue. She also revealed that she has a friend whose child could not get vaccinated due to a medical condition, which is why she got involved in the issue in the first place.
Farrah Abraham fully supports Biel
Abraham did not end her argument there. The reality star went on to praise Biel for advocating what is best for all of the parties involved. She then addressed another problem that arises when children do not get vaccinated. This includes how schools prohibit children from attending if they do not have the proper vaccinations.
There are, of course, good reasons why these rules are in place as they help safeguard other children from getting serious diseases.
Overall, Farrah Abraham believes the system is not equal, though she is open to the idea of vaccinations when it comes to her own kids. In fact, the former Teen Mom star revealed that her daughter was vaccinated and that everything worked out just fine.
Abraham now has her daughter taking online classes for schooling so that she can travel with her. Before their trips around the world, however, Abraham made sure her daughter was fully vaccinated against potential diseases.

After one fan asked if Danielsen feels like a failure in light of Abraham’s behavior, she revealed that she has no regrets with how she raised the Teen Mom alum. She also said that everyone makes their own decisions and she raised Abraham will all the love and empathy she could muster.
