Chicago Judge Strips Mother Of Custody Rights For Not Being Vaccinated

This is probably the first case in the U.S. where Government has stripped a private citizen of their Rights due to vaccination status

From the link

A Chicago mother is appealing a court order that revoked her parental visiting rights because she declined to be vaccinated against the coronavirus .

When Rebecca Firlit and her ex-husband of seven years participated in a child support hearing via video call on Aug. 10 for the purpose of determining the terms of shared custody of their 11-year-old son, Cook County Judge James Shapiro inquired about Firlit’s vaccination status. After Firlit told the judge she did not receive the vaccine because of adverse reactions she has had to other vaccines , he ordered her to be stripped of her parental right to visit her son until she has been vaccinated.

“I think that it’s wrong. I think that it’s dividing families. And I think it’s not in my son’s best interest to be away from his mother,” Firlit told local Fox-affiliate WFLD.

Firlit, who has spoken with her son on the phone and through video calls, hasn’t visited in person in over two weeks in compliance with the judge’s order.

“It had nothing to do with what we were talking about,” she said of her vaccination status. “He was placing his views on me and taking my son away from me.”

Her lawyer further stated that this was not in the judge’s jurisdiction and purview, as the father didn’t even bring the subject up. Oh, and there’s pretty much nothing within the law that allows this. The appeal should be interesting, and should be looking at the judge himself for this invasive and unconstitutional ruling. He might be saying “well, it’s for the welfare of the child”, but, the child is around plenty who are not vaccinated. This is a judge who simply decided to intervene with his own beliefs. And, maybe she can’t get the vaccine. Even the CDC notes that some have bad reactions and shouldn’t get it. How many more will decide to do the same?

Meanwhile, in Washington state

(King5) The Washington Federation of State Employees (WFSE) filed a lawsuit Thursday in an attempt to stop Gov. Jay Inslee’s vaccine mandate from going into effect after the state and the union failed to reach a bargaining agreement.

The complaint filed in Thurston County Superior Court alleges the state “failed to bargain the effects of [the mandate] in good faith” with the union, according to a release from WFSE.

The vaccine mandate, passed down by Inslee in early August, requires most state employees, healthcare workers and K-12 employees to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 18 or face losing their jobs.

Interesting. Government unions are allowed to bargain with mandates, but, private citizens aren’t? Private citizens have to simply suck it up and deal with it?

      Viruses can’t pay attention to one’s political leanings. This is a public health emergency, and worsening, and vaccination is our way out.

      • Dana says:

        We have been told by the left that only Trumpelstiltskins are refusing to be vaccinated. Who knew that the Palestinians were all Donald Trump supporters?

        The woman claims she has adverse reactions to vaccines. True or not, ONE OF THE REASONS we are told not to get the vaccine is for this reason. It should have been incumbent upon the judge to order a follow up on this to find out if she is telling the truth.

        The world is slipping into a morass of totalitarianism and these vaccines are NOT the way out. They will only SLOW THE SPREAD. Right now in Israel. Fifty percent of vaccinated in hospitals have had the vaccine.

        Ireland is sporting similar numbers.

        Aug 08, 2021 · The majority of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients in an Israeli hospital are fully vaccinated, including those with severe disease, according to one of the hospital’s doctors. On Aug. 5, Dr. Kobi Haviv, medical director of Herzog Hospital in Jerusalem, said in a Channel 13 TV News interview, “95% of the severe patients are vaccinated.”. Furthermore, “85-90% of the hospitalizations are in fully vaccinated people”

        The current crop of vaccinations IS NOT the way out of this pandemic. Especially if you have to get a booster every 8 months which will destroy the planet of all resources in 10 years.

    Approaching 200,000 new cases per day, 1500 deaths per day from Covid – with 99% of cases being the more contagious Delta variant. BTW, the trajectory on deaths is up, not a plateau. Buckle up.

    The unvaccinated are 5 times more likely to be infected and 29 times more likely to be hospitalized than the vaccinated. Vaccination is our path normal.

    The judge overstepped and this needs to be corrected.

    • Kye says:

      If 99% of new cases are the biden/Delta variant as you claim then the year old vaccine will do nothing since it was not designed for a variant.

      “The unvaccinated are 5 times more likely to be infected and 29 times more likely to be hospitalized than the vaccinated. Vaccination is our path normal.”

      And yet if you read anything other than propaganda rags that is just not true. Open your fuking mind Elwood!

      It does, but the appellate process takes time. Even if Mrs Firlit wins on her first appeal, how much longer will that take? How many more months will she be separated from her child? Ho much more money will it cost her to pay an attorney?

      Let’s assume that Mrs Firlit wins on appeal, because the judge clearly overstepped his authority. How will he be held accountable for his decision? The answer is: he won’t. There will be no punishment, he will pay no fine, he will not be kicked off the bench or suspended. And because he was operating in the normal performance of his duties, Mrs Firlit cannot even sue him.

        Actually there are things you can do to a judge, just people are sheep and scared to do them. Unfortunately, being old, I can not remember the name of the oversight body, but every state has one, your attorney can tell you who. A letter to this group is not something a judge likes, just a threat caused the judge to call me and apologies profusely for one of his actions. For that matter, in our society, there is always an oversight body, problem is finding them. I had a dispute with one of the major credit card companies. Called my banker who understood the issue and he gave me the name of an obscure bunch in the Federal government that handled this. I wrote them and got a letter back thanking me as they had been waiting for just such a complaint. The 3rd rated credit card company ceased to exist.
