Outbreak at Megachurch

There's a measles outbreak among members of a Texas megachurch. Eagle Mountain International Church led by Terri Copeland Pearsons, the daughter of televangelist Kenneth Copeland. She encouraged members to get vaccinated because of an outbreak in the church's daycare--even though her father has promoted the idea that vaccines can lead to autism, a view debunked by medical science. Here's a video report from WFAA-TV about how the church is connected to the outbreak.
