Second Mom in a Week Faces Possibility of Jail for Refusing to Vaccinate Her Child
Detroit, MI — Only days after Judge Karen McDonald sentenced Rebecca Bredow to jail for choosing not to vaccinate her son, another mother is facing the same potential fate. Lori Matheson is now facing the same court who, only days earlier, sent a mom to jail for refusing to vaccinate.
According to WXYZ:
Lori Matheson is objecting to a friend of the court order that found her daughter should get vaccinated.
She argues her family is pre-disposed to auto-immune injuries and a “23 and Me” genetic test will show that, and that the test should have been done before the referee made their determination.
The attorney for her daughter’s father says the daughter’s doctor recommended the vaccines and said her church allows them.
Matheson is now facing the same potential fate as Bredow and it’s all over the court’s decision to punish those who refuse vaccinations.
It is important to note that Matheson is not yet at the point to which Bredow had made it. Right now, she is only in court because she is choosing not to vaccinate their two-year-old while the father is.
The fact that this is the second case in only a couple of weeks, however, unfolding in the exact same manner, indicates where this could end up. It is indeed likely that the court will again side with the father.
Just like Bredow, the father in Matheson’s case, who does not have custody of the children, now wants to vaccinate his children to the fullest extent. Matheson disagrees, but the court has already shown that they couldn’t care less about what a mother thinks—despite Michigan law allowing for vaccine exemption.
