A Detroit mother, Rebecca Bredow, is sentenced to seven days in jail for not vaccinating her kids.
Although there is no federal or state law in the US that forces parents to vaccinate their children, Bredow had refused a court order to vaccinate her children after agreeing to do it as part of a divorce agreement.

Bredow has framed it as a choice and said her ex-husband Jason Horne had broken a verbal agreement to limit vaccination of their children.
“I am not a lazy parent. I am a passionate mother who cares deeply about my children, their health and their well-being,” Bredow told the court.
“If my child is going to be forced to be vaccinated, I couldn’t bring myself to do it.”
But Oakland County, Michigan, Circuit Court Judge Karen McDonald sees it another way.
“What you just said, that he has a new-found objection, is not true. You acknowledge in your own pleading that your child at a year old was up to date on all vaccinations,” McDonald said...
“And you’ve repeatedly stated over the past several days publicly that you will not follow this court order. So I am sentencing you to seven days in jail.”
A teen’s Reddit post went viral when he asked the public how he could get vaccinated. “My parents are kind of stupid and don’t believe in vaccines. Now that I’m 18, where do I go to get vaccinated? Can I get vaccinated at my age?” The Ohio high school student, Ethan Lindenberger, says he had […]
