Jenny McCarthy removed from breast cancer fundraiser.

Remember that breast cancer fundraiser that had invited Jenny McCarthy, a prominent anti-vax advocate, to headline their event?  Yeah, when it was brought to the attention of those planning the event, they did exactly what people promoting science should do with the people undermining science: they gave her the boot.

The misinformation spread by McCarthy creates corpses, corpses that those building new medical technologies are trying to avoid.  These two goals cannot be reconciled, which is why a fundraiser to develop cures lending even remote support to McCarthy is like Jenny Craig sending people coupons to McDonalds.

Props to the Bust a Move fundraiser.
