FAIRFIELD, Conn. – State Representative candidate Tara Cook-Littman has made an appearance in the controversial independent film ‘Bought’ which advocates against vaccinating children, claiming that vaccines are dangerous, and can cause disorders such as autism, and suggests that pharmaceutical companies are driven by greed and essentially buying off the government to sell life-saving vaccines.
“This appearance in a film that is essentially an anti-vaccine propaganda piece is alarming, and it questions Ms. Cook-Littman’s ability to be an objective elected legislator who is charged with protecting families and children and committed to making our communities safe places. In Ms. Cook-Littman’s world, she wants to bring us back to an era where children and adults go unvaccinated and modern medicine and technology are thrown away which is a frightening image,” said Fairfield Republican Town Committee Chairman James Millington.
“As we know, vaccines have saved millions of lives. Thankfully, due to science and the innovators who discover and make vaccines, diseases that once ravaged populations and in some cases, countries, have been eliminated or nearly eliminated,” said Trumbull Republican Town Committee Chairman Paul Lavoie. “While vaccinations protect individuals from diseases, they have far-reaching impacts that benefit an entire community, and one just has to look at the gravity of the Ebola outbreak to truly understand what happens when the proper vaccines aren’t readily available. While Ms. Cook-Littman is entitled to her beliefs and notions about vaccinations, I believe that these are dangerous claims and positions that could have serious implications on our public health and safety.”
Cook-Littman is running for the 134th State Representative seat. The Republican candidate is Laura Devlin.
