“The most basic of all human rights is the ability to have control over your own body and be able to exercise informed consent when making medical decisions that can harm you or your child.” — Rob Schneider
As one of very few public figures in the entertainment industry who had the courage to tell it like it was, and continues to do so, Schneider’s points over the years have been concise and on target.
In retrospect, the mainstream media hit pieces that have attempted to nullify his message can now be seen for what they really were — malicious attacks to stifle essential discussion.
In September 2014, Schneider was dropped from his contract as a voice and face for State Farm Insurance directly after he chose to make his views on mandatory vaccination known through Twitter.
Racing to capitalize on his dismissal, mainstream news stories continuously popped up to attack his character like an unethical, villainous game of whack-a-mole.
