PONTIAC, MICHIGAN (ALBOENEWS) — A mother to a 9-year-old is facing seven days in a Detroit-area jail for failing to vaccinate her son, reports AP.
Rebecca Bredow, a resident of a Detroit suburb, was found to be in contempt of court after declining a judge’s order to have her son vaccinated. This order was the result of a request made by Bedrow’s ex-husband who wanted the child to be given the medical proceedure.
In her hearing, Bredow told the judge that vaccination goes against her personal beliefs and that she understands that she willfully disobeyed a court order.[wordads]
