Mum ‘facing prison’ if she doesn’t vaccinate her nine-year-old boy

A MUM has revealed she could be caged if she does not vaccinate her son in two weeks.

Rebecca Bredow, from Detroit, Michigan, said she “feels like her rights as a parent have been taken away”.

Oakland County Court heard Rebecca was first asked to immunise her child in September last year, ABC News reports.

Initially, she and her ex-husband, Jason Horne, agreed the child would not have all his vaccines during a short space of time.

But after docs “grouped the immunisations together”, the mum of two changed her mind.

Ms Bredow told WXYZ she would rather go to prison than back down on something she believes in.

“I believe in the choice of the parent to make the right decision based on their knowledge of vaccines,” she said.

“I feel angry. I feel backed into a corner.”

Rebecca said she had applied for a “waiver” which allows parents to refuse immunisations on the grounds of “religious convictions or other objections”.

Michigan schools require students to receive vaccinations before entering Kindergarten, and up until 7th grade, year 8.

Her husband’s lawyer, said the case was not “truly about vaccinations”.

Benton G. Richardson told the broadcaster: “It is a case about Ms Bredow refusing to comport with any number of the court’s orders and actively seeking to frustrate Mr Horne’s joint legal custody rights.”
