Two potential Republican presidential candidates are facing criticism for their stance on vaccines amid the current measles outbreak that has spread throughout the country.
Sen. Rand Paul said in multiple interviews Monday he's not against vaccines but thinks they should be optional. Paul, who's a former ophthalmologist, also linked some vaccine cases to mental disorders. (Video via CBS)
"I've heard of many tragic cases of walking talking normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines. ... I think the parent should have some input. The state doesn't own your children," Senator Rand Paul said.
