Anti-vax mum's son immunised while she's jailed for defying court order

He had custody of the child and got him vaccinated while Rebecca Bredow was in jail.

A MI mother who was jailed after refusing to vaccinate her 9-year-old son said she would "do it all over again", even though it led to her spending five days behind bars and losing primary custody of her child. She was released from the Oakland County jail early Monday. He told the Detroit Free Press that Bredow had been the primary custodian but the judge approved a recommendation for an evenly split custody on Wednesday. A small group of supporters gathered outside the courthouse, waving signs reading "freedom is not force" and comparing the fight against vaccines to the pro-choice movement. "I just found out that he was vaccinated and I'm not going to get him back today", she told the Washington Post. "It's been a rough few days to say the least".

McDonald issued Bredow with the jail sentence for contempt of court. She thought she would be reunited with her son, but he remained with his father.

Bredow said that she could not bring herself to order the shots, while her attorney Vitale said that the pleadings McDonald referred to were filed in error by a previous attorney and that Bredow had never meant to consent to the vaccinations.

Parents in MI are legally allowed to skip or delay their children's vaccinations due to personal beliefs, according to the BBC. When their son was two, she claims the couple agreed to suspend all vaccinations. Bredow's attorney, Steven Vitale, said he would object to the change within the 21-day deadline set by the judge.

Her nine-year-old son has since received four immunisations this week. He said of his client, "She's devastated" but does not regret her decision to not vaccinate.

"I would rather go to jail for standing up for what I believe in than vaccinating my child", Bredow said prior to sentencing.

Do you think all states should require vaccinations with only medical vaccinations?
