Mum jailed for refusing to get son vaccinated

Mum jailed for refusing to get son vaccinated

"I just found out that he was vaccinated and I'm not going to get him back today", she told the Washington Post.

Summary: A MI mother was sentenced to jail for defying a judge's order to immunize her son and during the week she spend locked up her son received his immunizations.

Rebecca Bredow, the MI anti-vax mother who was jailed because she refused to let her son receive vaccinations, was not happy to learn that her son received four immunizations this week.

Rebecca Bredow, 40, objects to vaccinations on religious grounds - which is allowed by most U.S. states - but last year signed a legal agreement with her ex-husband to get their nine-year-old son up to date with his immunisations, reports CBS.

Less than one week on, the Detroit mother says it's been the "worst five days" of her life, compounded by the news her son had been immunised. "If not, you will appear here Wednesday and if you have not, I'll send you to jail". The judge also granted temporary custody to Horne and ordered the boy to be vaccinated. The mother said vaccinations go against her religious beliefs. "It's helped me get through this, truly", she added.

And win them over he did - 80 percent of white evangelicals cast their vote for Trump last November, according to exit polls . President Trump told values voters at the event that enemies fear the United States because the American people never give up.

Federal health officials say vaccinations are safe and can protect children and teenagers from more than a dozen potentially harmful diseases.

"It is our position that this case is not truly about vaccinations", Richardson said.

Bredow and Horne split in 2008, before their son was born.

The state of MI allows parents to opt out of certain vaccines for non-medical reasons.

"Vaccines have been part of the fabric of our society for decades and are the most significant medical innovation of our time", the group said.
