Michigan mom Rebecca and her ex-husband James' custody fight and fight over whether to vaccinate their son landed one of them behind bars.
According to James, when the former couple had their son, they decided to space out their child's vaccines, but when the vaccinations started to be grouped together, James says Rebecca decided to back off of all of the vaccinations.
James tells The Doctors that his son received all of his vaccinations for the first 2 to 3 years of his life. After splitting, James says he would ask his ex to get their son his vaccinations, but he claims Rebecca made excuses about not completing them. He goes on to allege that Rebecca signed vaccination waivers for multiple years without consulting him or without his consent and says his son was missing 4 important immunizations. James filed for full physical custody of his son and his motion also stated that he wanted to get his son his missing vaccinations.
In court, Rebecca said, "I'm an educated vaccine-choice mother and I have signed vaccine waivers and I have been fully compliant with all state Michigan laws and if my child is going to be forced to be vaccinated, I couldn't bring myself to do it. It goes against my beliefs."
The judge in the case sentenced Rebecca to jail for failing to abide by a court order to have her son vaccinated and she spent 5 days behind bars.
James says, "I am a man of science and facts and the benefits far outway the risks. [I want to] give my son the best possible opportunity that I can." James and his attorney Benton Richardson join the show and he says his son has now received his outstanding vaccinations.
Child advocate and attorney Areva Martin explains that in cases where parents are not able to decide on something for a child, that the court can step in and make the final decision after weighing what is best for the child.
The Doctors reached out to Rebecca for comment but did not hear back.
