Mother in Detroit Could Go to Jail for Refusing Vaccines
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.”
