Mother in vaccination fight loses primary custody of son

Share
Rebecca Bredow was handcuffed and booked into jail for a week after refusing to take her nine-year-old son to be vaccinated despite agreeing to do so in a custody battle with her son's father

Bredow's attorney said she was "devastated" when she found out her son was vaccinated.

But after being released from a week behind bars, the MI mother was outraged to find her nine-year-old's immunisations were done while she was in prison. "It's been a rough few days to say the least".

Rebecca Bredow lost primary custody of the boy Wednesday.

She said she couldn't adhere to the judge's order based on her "own religious beliefs". "This is about having my choices as a mother to be able to make medical choices for my child".

Now, she's breaking her silence about her time behind bars, the court system, and the support she's received from near and far and most importantly, her son. The judge also granted temporary custody to Horne and ordered the boy to be vaccinated. While his ex-wife was in jail, he followed the court order and had his son receive the first round of vaccines.

McDonald issued Bredow with the jail sentence for contempt of court. After she defied the judge's order, she served a five-day jail term, according to U.S.A. Today.

BMW to outsource China mini vehicle making to Great Wall
BMW is reportedly in talks with Chinese automaker Great Wall Motors to outsource Chinese production of the iconic Mini. The aim of the new partnership is so that BMW can increase production volumes and its market share in the EV segment.

Parents in MI are legally allowed to skip or delay their children's vaccinations due to personal beliefs, according to the BBC. Parents and guardians with children enrolled in public and private schools in MI must attend an educational session to learn about the diseases that vaccines prevent before they are allowed to receive a nonmedical waiver.

The child was given four immunizations Monday, after Bredow's ex-husband was granted shared custody, according to the AP.

Bredow said it was "against her beliefs" to vaccinate her children. A statement about Horne's version of their agreement has not been obtained.

Her ex-husband, who wanted his son vaccinated, went to the judge after Bredow would not vaccinate the boy.

When asked if the experience of going to jail was worth it in the end, especially given the outcome, the mother-of-two said she still stands by her anti-vaxx stance.
