Mike DeWine opposes anti-vaccine bill House Bill 248

3 min read

Gov. Mike DeWine came out against a controversial bill that would weaken Ohio’s vaccination laws and grant more individual freedom.

On Thursday, DeWine said he opposes House Bill 248 and asked Ohioans to think of the impact vaccines have had on society.

“Before modern medicine, diseases such as mumps, polio, whooping cough were common and caused great, great, great suffering and death to thousands of people every single year,” said DeWine during a news conference on the latest Vax-a-Million winners.

Hearings on House Bill 248 have drawn national attention as advocates have spread misinformation and conspiracies. Testimony from Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, of Middleburg Heights in Cuyahoga County, and nurse Joanna Overholt of Strongsville drew derision and mockery on Twitter and landed in the national press, including the Washington Post, CNN and Forbes.
