Michigan anti-vaccination case to goes to court
The Michigan anti-vaccination case went back to court Tuesday.
Lori Matheson is fighting her ex-husband, Michael Schmitt, for the right to decide if their two-year-old daughter should be vaccinated.
Doctor Alvin Moss testified in court today about the severity of the vaccinations.
"I think everybody knows that chicken pox is not typically a life-threatening disease and measles rubella those are not life-threatening diseases so I think the application would be that you wouldn't force parents to do something if it's not life-threatening,” says Dr. Moss.
Matheson does not want her child to get vaccines.
She said autoimmune disease runs in her family and she believes vaccines lead to Autism.
Schmitt, meantime, wants the court to order vaccinations for his daughter.
Michigan is one of 17 states that allows for exemptions from vaccines based on religious beliefs.
Matheson is citing her religious beliefs as her reason for being against vaccinations.
