"It's been a rough few days to say the least", she added.

Oakland County Judge Karen McDonald ruled Wednesday that Rebecca Bredow, 40, of Ferndale would no longer have primary custody of the boy, but would share joint custody with her ex-husband, James Horne.

She was released from jail on Monday, Oct. 9 after serving five of her seven days.

A United States mum jailed for defying a court order to vaccinate her young son says she's outraged he's been given several immunisations while she's been locked away.

Rape is recognised as an offence against the very nature of consent as well as against the society under the Indian Penal Code. As per the data, 13 percent under-18 girls in Delhi were married which has come down from 22.7 percent recorded in 2005-06.

Another commented on their decision to go under the knife: "Why can't you just love yourself the way you are?" said News Asia. Almost half of women in Seoul under the age of 30 are estimated to use plastic surgeries to enhance their facial features.

Horne wanted his son vaccinated and Bredow agreed to do so last November but didn't follow through. She also granted temporary custody to Horne and ordered the boy to be vaccinated. "But what I don't think you understand is that your son has two parents, and dad gets a say", she said. In previous court pleadings, she said that Bredow had consented to getting the shots, meaning her refusal to do so constituted contempt. She said to The Washington Post, "I can't give in against my own religious belief". She told the Press that being in jail was "horrific" but "I still stand by my choices because I stand up for what I believe in". Let me say it one more time, you have seven days. "I feel like my rights as a parent have been taken away", she added.

"She's devastated", Bredow's attorney, Steven Vitale, said.

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

"I have been the primary caregiver of my child since he was born". There is no civil or criminal penalty for refusing to vaccinate your child in the USA, and every state allows parents to opt out for medical reasons, while some states permit parents to decline vaccinations due to philosophical or religious reasons.
