Texas Monthly Inadvertently Reveals Hotez Daughter’s Vaccine Reaction

Peter Hotez and daughter Rachel, Texas Monthly

In the December 2017 issue of Texas Monthly, a puff piece about vaccine doc Peter Hotez titled “Peter Hotez vs. Measles and the Anti-Vaccination Movement” was prominently featured. The piece featured details about Hotez’s family life and his daughter Rachel, whose autism Hotez insists was not caused by vaccination. He is even publishing a book devoted entirely to that position. Unfortunately for Hotez, his wife Ann revealed a crucial detail in the article about their daughter that is a telltale sign of an encephalitic reaction to vaccination.

According to the article:

Rachel had an unusually high-pitched cry, and when Ann would pick her up to comfort her, her tiny body would remain stiff rather than nestling into her mother’s arms.

The detail would lend support to an Autism Investigated meme about Hotez being in denial of his daughter’s vaccine-caused autism.

His daughter’s vaccine reaction is a commonly reported symptom by many parents of vaccine-injured children. Those parents include Katie Wright, the daughter of Autism Speaks‘ founders Bob and Suzanne Wright.

(Katie Wright liked the tweet.)

Hotez’s daughter’s vaccine reaction coupled with his ideological devotion to the radical Islam-like extremism of vaccination help explain his vitriol. Such anger was expressed in a recent lecture he gave at Duke University where he said certain vaccine safety and choice groups were “a hate group that hates [our] family and hates [our] children.” He made these remarks the week after the State Department appointed him board member of the U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation.

Autism Investigated has responded to Hotez’s attacks with a letter-writing campaign to the State Department urging them to remove him from his position. There is still no response from the department bureau overseeing his appointment. So please contact the State Department using their general contact form. Use Autism Investigated’s exact letter, but shorten the addressee name to just “State Department.”
