A mother in MI has been sentenced to jail time for not vaccinating her son after she had agreed to do so in court.
Bredow had previously agreed to vaccinate the boy but failed to do so, according to a report, in a situation that played a part in the Oakland County judge's decision to jail her for a week.
Judge McDonald told Bredow she understands that she loves her son, but that the child "has two parents, and dad gets a say".
Bredow, who's Twitter profile was private but included a link to MI for Vaccine Choice, has faced mixed responses from Twitter users.
She had been given a time until Wednesday to take her son for vaccination, the medically allowed amount of vaccination would be more than eight vaccines.
"I'd rather be behind bars, but will stand for what I believe than renounce what convinced", said she.
The level of vaccination of children in MI one of the lowest in the United States.
The mother of two children was convicted on Wednesday for contempt of court after having ignored a court ruling last week that planned to vaccinate the child. So, the court has awarded the primary custody to her ex-husband to let the boy be vaccinated.
The anti-vaxxer told court that immunisation "goes against my beliefs".
Anti-vaccination advocates - whose claims have been widely debunked by the medical community - fear the procedure exposes children to harm, and could be the cause of autism. Requirements are then decided by individual states or local school districts.
"It wasn't until they started grouping them together that I backed off of doing vaccines", she told WXYZ.
"If this child is injured as a result of being given eight immunizations, who do you think is going to take care of the child?"
The court ordered the vaccination in October 2016.
MI schools require children to be vaccinated but parents can seek waivers for religious and other objections.
"Even if you agreed to them, which you did".
