The Hill is reporting Wednesday that hundreds of families opposed to vaccinations gathered in the California Capitol to protest a bill that would give the state control over which children are exempt from mandatory vaccinations.

The Hill reports:

The protests came the same day federal health officials declared that measles cases in the U.S. have reached an all-time high since the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 2000.

The spike in cases has been driven partially by the spread of misinformation about vaccines and resulting skepticism about vaccinating children.

There sure are a lot of people crowded into that hallway.
