A mother who contested vaccinating her two children in a court battle with her former partner by citing the children’s vegan lifestyles has lost. A judge has ordered that the two and four-year-old be vaccinated.
Although the mother claimed the children could be “fed only natural products,” a judge did not side with her. The mother claimed that vaccines offered “definite risks” in terms of violating the vegan lifestyle.
Vaccines contain products that I would not want my children’s bodies to accommodate.
It is not natural to be injected with metal elements and as a vegan it goes against my beliefs for my children to be injected with something that is grown on animal cells or something that has been tested on animals.
– VEGAN MOTHER
Judge Mark Rogers sided with the mother’s former partner claiming that vaccines would be in the best interest of the children. The mother and father in the case, according to ITV, chose not to be identified.
This isn’t the first time that a judge has decided the fate of vaccines for children.
Earlier this year, another judge ruled that a baby should be vaccinated against infections which could lead to meningitis despite his mother’s opposition.
