Woman Skeptical About Vaccinating Child She Just Kidnapped From Parking Lot

Springer, D., Graham, L. et al.

Lauren Schilling, the 38-year-old woman accused of kidnapping of Brandon Paulson, 2, from a supermarket parking lot, says that she is Brandon’s mother now and that given the literature she’s read online, is uncertain if she will continue with his vaccinations. 

“I’m just not sure that the benefits outweigh the risks. Did you know that most people who get diseases are vaccinated?” asked Schilling, 38, whose compulsive yet exhilarating decision has thrust her into the national spotlight as the target of an intensive man-hunt.

“And anyway, disease rates were on the decline even before vaccines, because hygiene and sanitation improved,” added Schilling, who has hidden Brandon in a Super 8 motel and has been feeding him pizza while she decides her next move. 

Schilling, who has always wanted children but cannot have any of her own, pointed out that “vaccinations have been found to have terrible side effects-and there are probably some we don’t even know about yet. I don’t think I want that for Brandon.”
