Assuming we are talking about the case in Pennsylvania, they were taken to court. You can see some of the documents right here...

OP, we had no problems with no Hep B vax with our planned hospital birth last year. But we had read about this case and chose to take with me to the hospital both a note from our family doctor stating that we were not vaxxing and the lab results showing me to be Hep B negative. But they were never needed.

And I'm not saying that the parents are lying it not but the story could be fake. There is too many weird things that don't add up!
The point is you don't think stories float around to scare people into vaccinating?

No it's real.....

In fact, on most NICUs we accommodate parents who do the following and have not had their children taken away:

- positive for multisubstances

- admit to and test positive for marijuana

- abusive relationships, including on the unit

- under the influence on the unit

- overdose on the unit bathroom

- drop their baby in a methadone haze, resulting in a brain bleed and skull fracture.

 

Are you comparing your hospital's accommodation of educated parents who do thoughtful research, make careful decisions for their children's health, and refuse medical routines and protocol with your hospital's accommodation of parents who are substance abusers, addicts, and in abusive, dysfunctional relationships?  You may not know this, but those are two different kinds of parents. A veiled attitude toward the general public is rather revealing here.

As an educated, health-conscious parent and lifelong nonvaxer but never-been-a substance abuser, that statement and comparison are extremely rude, negative, and hostile!

I think she was just saying that the hospital staff and CPS normally have bigger fish to fry than giving someone who denies hep b a problem. I am a non-vaxxer and I didn't think at all that she was comparing me with substance abusers or other parents with serious issues.

Hi,

Im not sure if I am too late but I gave birth at the Elliot on 9/7/2013 and declined all vaccinations for myself and my daughter.  No one gave me a hard time.  I was asked a few times by different people but they all respected my decision.  I did have to sign a form during discharge stating I declined vaccines but it was no big deal.  I was not pressured or questioned about my decision either.  Best of luck on your birth!!

My first 2 children have been fully vaccinated (even received the hep b at birth) mainly because I never bothered to question it. It's what everyone does right? But now, I am a little more informed on the topic and I am currently 4 months pregnant with my 3rd. I can say for sure that my child will NOT be receiving the hep b shot at birth and will not be getting the shot anytime soon for that matter. It is one of the vaccines that I am considering skipping altogether or at least until the child is older.

I would highly suggest skipping this one all together hep b is transferred through sex and drug use so there is no need for a child to receive it unless the mother has it( which I'm still not even sure they need it in this case I would have to research this more) just a thought but as always make the decision that makes YOU feel the most comfortable because you are the mama smile.gif

Birth is just the beginning of your decision making and struggle for respect as a parent; prepare for 18-25 yrs of struggle.

parents are harassed to comply with medical decisions or the child will receive a judicial parent-ectomy.

 

The Amish case is closed, but the other cases are still in the family court system.
