An Ottawa mom has been legally banned from telling her 14-year-old son not to get the COVID-19 vaccines and prohibited by court order from showing him online information that calls into question the safety or efficacy of the vaccines.
In her family court decision released Oct. 18, Ontario Superior Court Justice Jennifer Mackinnon granted the boy’s father sole parental decision-making authority regarding the vaccine. The judge said the boy was entitled to be vaccinated and sided with the father’s lawyer, Linda Hanson, who presented the court with supporting information from reputable organizations and doctors who recommend getting vaccinated.
The parents share custody of the boy and decision-making.
The boy’s father petitioned the court for sole decision-making authority when it came to getting his son vaccinated.
The mother opposed the motion and retained Dr. Mary E. O’Connor, who wrote a supporting letter saying the boy should not be vaccinated because he has asthma, the vaccine is experimental and there’s no evidence of benefits to children.
The judge noted: “Dr. O’Connor does not refer to medical or scientific support for her conclusion that there is no evidence of any benefits to children from the vaccine other than she has heard of ill effects in her practice. This statement is too general to be given weight.”
The doctor, who has not yet responded to voice mails and text messages for comment, also wrote that the vaccines have many adverse effects, “including deaths.”
The Ottawa doctor finished off the letter, writing: “Anyone who administers such a vaccine will be held responsible and liable for any adverse effects that would occur immediately, or in the years to come.”
The judge decided that it was in the best interests of the boy to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
The judge also noted that it seemed the boy had been influenced about his apparent position on not getting vaccinated.
“I find that the current views expressed by the child are not independent, rather are the result of influence by his mother and the doctor she retained to oppose the motion. The mother will be ordered … not to provide the child with any information directly or indirectly about COVID-19 vaccines contrary to what is provided by the Canadian, Ontario and Ottawa public health authorities.”
In a Sept. 18, 2021, letter filed in court, O’Connor wrote that she had already discussed the “concerns about the risks of this needle.” The doctor said the boy “definitely said that he does not want this vaccination.”
The judge decided otherwise and granted the boy’s father sole decision-making when it came to getting vaccinated.
