Anti-Vaxx Catholic Jerome Kunkel Who Sued School For Barring Him From Classes Now Has The CHICKEN POX!
A Kentucky teenager who sued his school for banning him after he refused to get the chickenpox vaccine on religious grounds now has chickenpox. Jerome Kunkel, an 18-year-old senior and basketball captain at a Catholic school in Walton, was barred from completing his final term amid a chickenpox outbreak that had, at the time, affected 32 people. Kunkel objects to vaccines because he believes they 'contain aborted fetal cells', and he sued the school in the hope that they would overturn the policy - to no avail. On Wednesday, a lawyer for Kunkel's family told NBC that Jerome has been battling chickenpox for a week. Source
