Is Scientology stealth supporting anti-vaccine group Advocates for Physicians' Rights? The Real Truther broke the story on Twitter: https://twitter.com/thereal_truther/status/1169687706403627008 This report by The Real Truther follows Tony Ortega's August 4, 2019 story about another anti-vaccine group led by Scientologists that opposes California Senate Bill 276, "Scientologist-led anti-vaxx 'Conscience Coalition' is off to a humble start," as well as Tony Ortega's earlier May 16, 2019 story, "Beyond the quarantine: Signs that Scientology is getting involved in anti-vaxx panic." ************* The Real Truther is correct that Lori Prescott is the Chief Financial Officer of Advocates for Physicians' Rights, Inc. https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov/Document/RetrievePDF?Id=04271888-26184525 In addition, Lori Prescott signed the Articles of Incorporation as the Incorporator. https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov/Document/RetrievePDF?Id=04271888-26184525 The Real Truther is correct that Lori Prescott is a Scientologist. http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/l/lori-prescott.html The Real Truther is correct that attorney Leigh Dundas is involved with Advocates for Physicians' Rights. See, for example: Advocates for Physicians’ Rights (AFPR): California Vaccine Bill Revision Creates a 'Killing Effect' on Medical Exemptions https://www.prweb.com/releases/advocates_for_physicians_rights_afpr_california_vaccine_bill_revision_creates_a_killing_effect_on_medical_exemptions/prweb16392555.htm * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * * Advocates for Physicians’ Rights (AFPR), a California-based nonprofit organization set up exclusively for the promotion of social welfare and protection of physicians’ rights, asserts that the recent SB 276 Amendments encroach on the physician-patient relationship even more than the previous revision and still rely on narrow guidelines as a basis for issuing legitimate medical exemptions. “The bill’s authors just put a huge target on doctors’ backs, which is worse than a ‘chilling effect’, but a ‘killing effect’ of legitimate medical exemptions in this state,” attorney Leigh Dundas said. * * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * * The Real Truther is correct that attorney Leigh Dundas is a Scientologist. http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/l/leigh-dundas.html The website for Advocates for Physicians' Rights. Code: https://www.physiciansrights.org EDITED TO ADD: In Tony Ortega's May 16, 2019 story, "Beyond the quarantine: Signs that Scientology is getting involved in anti-vaxx panic," former top Scientology executive Amy Scobee addressed the involvement of Scientologist Lucy Cole in the anti-vaccination movement: https://tonyortega.org/2019/05/16/b...ology-is-getting-involved-in-anti-vaxx-panic/ * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * * In the meantime, we turned to former top Scientology executive Amy Scobee for her thoughts on these new developments. We told her that we’ve been pointing out to other reporters that although the church doesn’t express an anti-vaxx position, Hubbard’s anti-doctor diatribes have produced Scientologists who are skeptical of western medicine, including vaccines. She agreed with that, and pointed out that in her 20 years at Int Base, she never saw Sea Org members getting vaccines or being given the time off to get them. As for what’s been going on lately with Scientology seemingly getting involved in anti-vaxx activities, she admits to being as bewildered as we are. But she says that Lucy Cole’s activities wouldn’t be happening if it hadn’t been approved by Scientology, and specifically with oversight by the Office of Special Affairs, Scientology’s secret police. * * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * * This observation may be equally applicable to the Scientologists involved with Advocates for Physicians' Rights.
