US Mother Sentenced to 7 Days in Jail for Refusing to Vaccinate Her Son

(ANTIMEDIA) Michigan — Casting a spotlight on a highly controversial issue, a Michigan mother was jailed Wednesday for refusing to have her nine-year-old son vaccinated, the Associated Press reports.

We're revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.

The case stems from a legal agreement the woman, Rebecca Bredow, had with her ex-husband to space out vaccinations for their son. When the shots began to get grouped together, the mother says, she grew concerned.

“It wasn’t until they started grouping them together that I backed off of doing vaccines,” Bredow told local WXYZ.

She says she began to study the subject and found she no longer believed in the practice of vaccinations. The county judge, however, held her to her previous agreement, and on Wednesday she sentenced her to seven days in jail for contempt of court.

“I understand you love your children. But what I don’t think you understand is that your son has two parents, and dad gets a say,” Judge Karen McDonald told Bredow in court, noting that her attorney had signed the agreement with the ex-husband.

Bredow told McDonald she takes “full responsibility” and that yes, she should have raised her concerns sooner. But now, she says, if she were forced to vaccinate her child, “I couldn’t bring myself to do it.”

On September 27, while speaking to WXYZ, Bredow said she was willing to accept jail as a consequence for being true to her new stance on the touchy issue of vaccinations:

“I would rather sit behind bars standing up for what I believe in, than giving in to something I strongly don’t believe in.”

As a mother, however, she feels the state is overstepping its bounds:

“I feel angry. I feel backed into a corner. I feel like my rights as a parent have been taken away.”

Bredow is the primary caregiver of the boy in question. Judge McDonald placed him in the temporary custody of his father while Bredow serves her seven-day sentence. McDonald also, as the Associated Press writes“ordered the boy to be properly vaccinated.”

    “What is the Primary Fundamental Right?

    The Primary Fundamental Right is the most basic of all pre-political human rights. It is the innate right of a person to the ownership of their own body and the right to do what they want to that body.

    People who don’t believe that the Primary Fundamental Right exists should ask themselves this question; can you do anything you want to your body and not have the possibility of going to jail for doing so? The answer is definitely no. Because of legal constraints we are all slaves. We are not a free people, regardless of what we may think. Therefore all the freedoms we think we have are really illusions unless we own our own bodies. Remember, only slaves cannot make decisions about their own bodies.

    Every one of us, including the politicians, are now owned by our respective governments because of numerous iniquitous laws, including the drug prohibition laws, statutory rape laws and compulsory vaccination laws that they the politicians have enacted supposedly on instruction from the majority of voters. In reality we have all been caught up in a swirling Socialism torrent sliding downwards towards Totalitarianism for over 100 years. The drug prohibition laws are a symptom of that progression, but not the root cause.

    The Primary Fundamental Right exists because everything, with the possible exception of God, has an opposite and the opposite of Totalitarianism is the Primary Fundamental Right.”
