Mom gets jail over refusal to vaccinate son

Mom gets jail over refusal to vaccinate son

A MI mother will spend a few days in prison after she declined to get her son vaccinated.

The judge restated that the court never made a finding on vaccination because it was agreed upon by Bredow in November past year that her son would receive is vaccinations. She was found Wednesday in contempt of court for refusing to do so.

Rebecca Bredow refused to let her nine-year-old be immunised after initially agreeing with the father to do so.

A MI mom was sent to the slammer for repeatedly refusing to vaccinate her son, according to local reports.

And while Bredow had been forthright about refusing to vaccinate her son, she and her ex-husband had previously agreed in November 2016 to inoculate the child, with the injections being spaced out over time.

If a parent does not comply with a school's vaccination guidelines, the child is not permitted to attend school and the parent can be jailed for the pupil's truancy.

The anti-vaxxer told Judge Karen McDonald that immunizing the boy went against her religious beliefs and that she was a "passionate mother who cares deeply about her children, their health and their well-being".

"I'm gonna stop you because the truth matters", the judge said.

Rebecca Bredow is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to find out if she will be behind bars for standing by her decision to not get childhood shots for her son.

Her ex-husband has now been awarded temporary primary custody in order to get the boy the jab. And the record, I urge you to review it and what you just said, that he has a newfound objection is not true.

As a result, Bedrow was sentenced to serve seven days in jail.

A MI mother was told she'd face jail time if she didn't get her son vaccinated.
