Jennifer Margulis is a home birth advocate and author. As is typical with many critics of modern medicine, she mixes legitimate criticism of things like over-treatment with conspiratorial thinking about how Big Medicine and Big Pharma are out to destroy you and your children in the name of profit. Throwing the baby out with the bathwater, as it were. Unsurprisingly, she flirts with vaccine denial as well, not outright saying that vaccines are bad but just asking questions about how safe and necessary they are. In her own words, "I am not anti-vaccine, I am pro-questions." She states she is "pro-vaccine" and that "vaccines work", but repeats many of the thoroughly discredited claims thrown about by vaccine deniers: vaccines may cause autism, vaccine schedules recommend too many vaccines at once, vaccines are potentially harmful because they're not "natural", etc.
