University of Minnesota bioethicist Steve Miles is now offering $1,000 if the woman Bachmann described comes forward with medical proof that her daughter was left mentally disabled because of the vaccination. Art Caplan, director of the University of Pennsylvania Center for Bioethics and Miles’ former boss at the U, went further — offering $10,000 if the woman’s claim is verified. “These types of messages in this climate have the capacity to do enormous public health harm,” Miles said of why he made the offer. “It’s an extremely serious claim and it deserves to be analyzed.” Miles and Caplan said they are prepared to pay should the medical records be released.
