Mother Who Refuses To Vaccinate Her Son Gets A Week In Jail
Detroit mother Rebecca Bredow was sentenced to a week in jail after she refused to vaccinate her son following a judge's order to do according to WXYZ ABC News.
The mother of two had one week to get her son vaccinated, and refused to comply with court orders and agreements dating back to November 2016 saying she would vaccinate the boy. Bredow's ex-husband wants their son vaccinated, but she is the primary caregiver for their son. Now, he will have temporary custody to take the child to get vaccinated while she goes to jail. "I would rather sit behind bars standing up for what I believe in, than giving in to something I strongly don't believe in," Bredow said.
