Mother in vaccination fight loses primary custody of son

A Michigan judge has reduced the child custody rights of a woman after being found in cotempt of court and jailed for five days

Bredow told reporters Wednesday she was "in shock" by the court's decision.

After failing to follow through with the promise, an Oakland County judge last week sentenced her to five days in prison for contempt of court.

Rebecca Bredow, the MI anti-vax mother who was jailed because she refused to let her son receive vaccinations, was not happy to learn that her son received four immunizations this week.

Prior to going to jail, Bredow told ABC News that she and her then-husband, Jason Horne, had initially agreed to space out vaccinations for their young son. Oakland County Jail gives a one-day credit to inmates who successfully serve five days so she was able to be released at midnight on October 9.

"I am an educated vaccine-choice mother and I have signed vaccine waivers and have been fully compliant with all state laws for both of my children for every school year", Bredow said before the sentencing hearing last week. "If not, you will appear here Wednesday and if you have not, I'll send you to jail". While Bredow was in jail, Horne took his son to the doctor to get vaccinated.

A Friend of the Court referee, after reviewing the custody battle case, recommended that both parents, Bredow and Horne, get joint custody of their son.

"She's devastated", Bredow's attorney, Steven Vitale, said. She said she will do that.

Bredow said it was "against her beliefs" to vaccinate her children.

Bredow said she is planning on appealing and gaining back primary custody of her son.

"Vaccines have been part of the fabric of our society for decades and are the most significant medical innovation of our time", the group said.
