Metro Detroit mother faces jail over vaccinations

Metro Detroit mother faces jail over vaccinations”

A Detroit, Michigan, woman is reportedly facing jail time if she doesn't get her son vaccinated.

Rebecca Bredow said she would rather sit behind bars than give in something she doesn't believe in.

Bredow said she made the decision to space out and delay some of their little one's vaccines.

Ms Bredow said after reading books she applied for a waiver, which the state of MI allows for "religious convictions or other objections to immunisation".

"I believe in the choice of the parent to make the right decision based on their knowledge of vaccines", she told 7 Action News.

The disagreement moved to a courtroom where judge ordered that the boy gets the shots or the mother will go to jail.

Bredow later decided against the vaccines altogether - against her ex-husband's wishes for the child. "God forbid if he were to be injured by a vaccine".

The mother-of-two was taken to court by her ex-husband and father of the boy because she is against vaccinating their child. The TV station's video package shows the court documents and order from the judge.

Until that day comes, Bredow is looking into how she can possibly avoid jail time, but she doesn't appear to be backing down on her anti-vax position. "I feel backed into a corner".

Now, Bredow, the primary care giver for her child, only has until October 11 to complete the court order before she is punished.

'Yes, every parent has a choice but we also have a right to have our voices heard.

Rebecca hit the books, educated herself, she says, on the research, literature and studies. "So why automatically side with the father that wants the vaccines", Bredow continued.

When it comes to how much time she would spend behind bars, if it indeed comes down to it, that is up to the court to decide.
