A Miami mother is facing jail time if she doesn’t allow her ex-husband to vaccinate her daughter. The mother shared the news in an anti-vaccine Facebook group. According to a court order, she cannot prevent her daughter from receiving her vaccinations, or she will spend 30 days in jail.
The mother, we will call Carly, has been in a custody battle with her husband for 3.5 years. Carly and her ex-husband share joint custody of their 4.5-year-old daughter.
According to Carly, she and her ex-husband, we will call Scott, have very different beliefs about modern medicine. Scott is a firm believer that their daughter, we will call Mandy, should be fully vaccinated per the CDC schedule.
Carly says that she believes vaccines are toxic. Over the years, she has tried to persuade Scott to read books and propaganda movies like Vaxxed. However, Scott is a man rooted in science and refuses to read or watch anything Carly provides. Carly cried to the group that Scott thinks she’s radical.
For the past 3.5 years, the two have been battling in court about how to manage their daughter’s medical care. Carly believes that because Mandy has the MTHFR mutation, she cannot be vaccinated. Despite Carly’s beliefs, there is no scientific evidence supporting non-vaccination for individuals with this mutation.
Since many anti-vaxxers believe that individuals with MTHFR cannot be vaccinated, they use the mutation as an excuse to get medical exemptions from vaccines. Carly has fought for years to find a doctor that will testify in court supporting her claims.
Despite her best efforts, the two doctors she consulted, including a naturopath, refuse to go on court record and say Mandy’s MTHFR mutation excludes her from vaccinations.
Not even the quack naturopath will testify, that is saying something. Given the fact that absolutely no professional will support her in court, Carly lost her battle to Scott.
Carly sobbed to the group that the court sided with Scott because vaccinations are a usual standard of care with children. Scott’s attorney argued in court that Carly’s beliefs were radical and not based on science.
None of those statements by the attorney stopped Carly from acting like a defiant teenager until the bitter end. Unfortunately, yesterday the court told Carly that they’d had enough. The judge was sick of Carly ignoring the agreements between the two sides.
Additionally, the judge said they had given Carly more than enough time to comply with the terms of the agreement. Apparently, the judge lost his patience and wanted to escort Carly to the clinker yesterday afternoon.
Somehow the attorney’s in the case worked their magic, and Carly did not end up in jail. Instead, the judge requested Carly sign an order that outlined the rules she must follow. If she disobeys the order at any time, the judge said Carly will immediately go to jail.
In the order Carly shared with the group, Scott can vaccinate Mandy at any time he wishes. Scott does not have to tell Carly when Mandy will receive the vaccines. Additionally, Carly isn’t allowed to know the vaccination schedule.
The court ordered that Carly cannot discuss immunizations of any kind with Mandy. Carly is not allowed to be present at any of Mandy’s appointments where she receives vaccines. If Carly interferes in any way, the court will order her directly to jail.
Carly is required to comply with the court by January 14. Failure of Carly’s compliance will result in a 30-day jail sentence.
Naturally, Carly shared the results with the group, and the group reacted as rationally as anti-vaxxers can. Some suggested Carly kidnap her daughter and flee to another state. Others provided suggestions for successful detoxes she can use after she receives vaccinations.Perhaps the most alarming aspect was the number of people telling Carly that Mandy will become vaccine injured. Dozens of commenters told Carly that if Mandy develops autism or any other issues that Carly should sue. Since Carly is “logical,” she said she has an attorney ready to litigate if necessary.
When she learned Mandy would be injected with chemicals and toxins, Carly could not keep her composure in court. She said she cried the entire hearing.
Even though she is fiercely against the order, Carly says she will comply with the ruling.
While Carly acts like a spoiled brat, she fails to realize that Mandy is the winner in this situation. Because Scott refused to bend to Carly’s ridiculous and radical beliefs, Mandy will receive vaccines to protect her from Measles, Rubella, Polio, Hepatitis, Diptheria, and Tetanus to name a few.
Even though Carly paints Scott as a vindictive ex, Scott is a loving father who wants the best for his child. By vaccinating Mandy, Scott can ensure she will not die from a preventable disease. Additionally, Mandy will not risk long-term side effects from contracting these illnesses.
So while Carly cries into her glass of pinot grigio tonight, I say we raise our glasses and toast Scott.
Congratulations on winning the case! Mandy is lucky to have such a loving and devoted father.
