A judge temporarily barred a mother in Chicago from obtaining partial parental custody of her 11-year-old son because she is unvaccinated for COVID-19.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cook County Judge James Shapiro barred Rebecca Firlit on Aug. 10 from seeing her son, although she and her ex-husband have been divorced for seven years and shared custody.
Firlit's attorney Annette Fernholz said her ex-husband never raised the issue of her not being vaccinated, the newspaper reported.
According to FOX32, Firlit was asked during a child support hearing over Zoom if she was vaccinated. When she answered no, Judge Cook stripped Firlit of all parenting rights until she got vaccinated.
