(Frankfort, KY) - Governor Matt Bevin says he intentionally exposed all nine of his children to chickenpox so they would get the disease and become immune.
Bevin made the comment in a radio interview with WKCT in Bowling Green Tuesday, suggesting that the government stay out of mandating vaccines.
Several medical experts have called Bevin's practice medically unsound and unwise.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urges against deliberately exposing kids to chicken pox.
