A mom from Detroit could serve jail time over her refusal to vaccinate her own son. Rebecca Bredow was arranged by Oakland County judges on September 27 to vaccinate her boy within a week. Her time has almost come to an end.
Her ex-husband and Rebecca Bredow are embroiled in a court battle over the matter. Jason Horne, her ex-husband, considers that their son should be vaccinated against diseases, such as measles, mumps, and rubella. Bredow feels.
“I’d rather sit behind bars standing up for what I believe in, than giving into something I strongly do not believe in,” she told WXYZ. “Why automatically side with the father that desires the vaccines? What about my choice as a mother?”
So are vaccines? Vaccines are rigorously tested for security and are used because they save lives. As for claims that vaccinations cause autism, anti-vaxxers themselves have financed a study that found no connection at all between vaccinations and autism. To be clear, there isn’t any link.
What is more deaths have dropped off as an example, since the introduction of the measles vaccine. Between 2000 and 2015, there was a 79 percent drop in measles deaths across the world, mainly due to the vaccine.
Bredow was initially asked to immunize her child in September 2016, ABC News report, but has not done so. She now has until 9am EDT (1pm GMT) on Wednesday to have her 9-year-old child vaccinated.
Bredow and Horne had originally agreed to space rather than giving them to him all in 1 go.
Michigan schools need that students are vaccinated before they go into kindergarten and up until 7th grade. On the other hand, the country also enables parents to seek “waivers” for immunizations on the grounds of religious conviction, which Bredow has applied for.
She worries that the vaccine may hurts her son, though testing has proven vaccines are safe.
“God forbid if he were to be injured by a vaccine,” Bredow said. “I would need to take good care of him.”
“I choose not to vaccinate, but that’s my choice. I am not against vaccines, it’s everybody’s personal option.”
Horne said that the case wasn’t really roughly, although about vaccines Bredow’s effort to frustrate joint-custody rights. Nevertheless, her narrative is being shared with anti-vaxxers, who believe they should have the right to deny vaccines and possibly spread harmful diseases to others.
