Mom Jailed for Not Vaccinating Her Son With Vaccine That Uses Cells From Aborted Babies

A Michigan mother recently spent several days in jail after she refused to vaccinate her son with vaccines cultured with aborted babies’ tissue, One News Now reports.

The case involves Rebecca Bredow, of Detroit, and her ex-husband who disagreed about their 9-year-old son’s vaccinations. According to the report, Bredow initially agreed to the vaccination in a court order but then refused to follow it.

As a result, a judge sentenced Bredow to seven days in jail earlier this month, WXYZ-TV Detroit reports. The judge said she understands that Bredow loves her son, but said she also does not get to make decisions for him on her own; the boy’s father also has a say.

Bredow said she does not regret the legal battle. She has served the jail sentence.

“I was trying to protect my kids,” she said. “I was trying to stand up for what I believed in, and it was worth it for me to try and take the risk, because I was trying to stop the vaccinations from happening.”

In response to the case, Right to Life of Michigan issued a statement supporting a parent’s right of conscience in choosing not to use vaccines derived from aborted babies’ tissue for themselves or their children.

“There is absolutely no question that a significant number of common vaccines are directly cultured using cells from aborted unborn children,” Legislative Director Ed Rivet said. “That is how the vaccines are produced. We have long supported the right of parents to refrain from using them or to request alternative versions cultured in untainted cell lines.”

The pro-life group said all common childhood immunizations have versions that were created using cells from aborted babies. These include MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) and DTPP (Diptheria, Tentanus, Pertussis, Polio). Some ethical alternatives are available, but there are none currently for Chickenpox, Hepatitis A and MMR, according to the group.

“These cells came from healthy babies who were electively aborted, not from miscarried babies,” Rivet said. “The unfortunate part is that all of these vaccines can be produced without the use of aborted fetal cells. The pharmaceutical industry can eliminate this entire controversy by using other cell lines to produce vaccines.”

Many vaccines are created with cell lines that originated from an aborted baby, though they do not need to be.

“The fact of the matter is that aborted fetal tissue is absolutely unnecessary for vaccine production or any medical research. There are numerous FDA approved moral cell lines and if human cells are desired, they can be obtained from a plethora of non-objectionable sources including umbilical cord, cord blood and other adult stem cells,” Debi Vinnedge, the director of the pro-life group Children of God for Life, wrote in 2015.

Last year, a Congressional investigative panel found that fetal tissue often was used to develop vaccines for “economic, not scientific reasons.”

“Almost 75 specific vaccine formulations have been approved by the FDA for use in the United States and not a single one has been produced using freshly isolated human fetal tissue. Eleven of these vaccines rely on fetal cell lines for historic reasons, yet all of them could be produced using animal cells,” according to the report.

Manly looking Gabriela Skwarko, 23 charged after anti-abortion protesters attacked on video near Ryerson

Toronto police say a woman has been arrested and charged after anti-abortion protesters were attacked on video during a protest near Ryerson University earlier this month.

Gabriela Skwarko, 23, turned herself in Friday evening.

Skwarko has been charged with assault and assault with a weapon.

Skwarko is a member of the Ryerson Reproductive Justice Collective, which is an abortion rights advocacy group.

The group’s co-founder, Olson Crow, declined to comment about the arrest when asked about it by Global News.

Skwarko is also listed as an assistant at Ryerson’s Social Innovation Office on its website.

“This is now a Toronto Police Service matter; the university is co-operating with the TPS,” a Ryerson spokesperson said.

The university would not comment on whether or not Skwarko remains employed by Ryerson, where she is also a student, or whether she has faced any academic repercussions.

A video of the incident, which took place during an Oct. 1 protest at Gould and Victoria streets, was posted on YouTube earlier this month.

It shows anti-abortion protesters and abortion rights advocates discussing the topic of abortion while holding signs.

 

A person can be seen approaching anti-abortion protesters Blaise Alleyne and Katie Somers and knocking down one of their controversial and graphic anti-abortion signs, which depicted an aborted fetus.

The attacker is then seen picking up the dolly that held the sign and throwing it in their direction.

The person then reaches into Somers’ backpack and smashes an object on the ground while pushing her.

“I’m obviously very happy that the Toronto police are taking this seriously,” Somers said. “It benefits everybody if they send a strong message that violent reactions to civil discourse will not be tolerated.”

The incident occurred one day after a man was recorded on video kicking another anti-abortion protester at a separate protest.

In that case, Jordan Hunt, 26, faces numerous assault charges.

Skwarko has been released on conditions and a promise to appear in court on Dec. 13.

She is not allowed to possess any weapons or contact Alleyne and Somers.
