The former reality star’s 10-year-old daughter, Sophia, is vaccinated. But Abraham said she thought hard before going through with it, she explained:
“With Sophia, it’s like, ‘Do I want to do vaccinations? Do I not?’ It’s like, ‘Is she going to get sick?’ You know some kids have died from vaccinations.”
Abraham addressed the issue after actress Jessica Biel recently came under fire confirming that she supports “families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians.”
The mom said she understands where Biel was coming from. She told the outlet:
“So I understand that some parents feel that there should not…it’s a parent’s choice, just like with pregnancy, it’s the woman’s choice. So however you feel it’s going to benefit your family or you, then make the right choice. So I think Jessica Biel is bringing light to that.”
However, Abraham said that she believes parents who don’t vaccinate their kids should be prepared to deal with the consequences.
The 28-year-old said:
“I think she’s playing the best for everyone. Some people can’t go to school if you don’t vaccinate your kids, then your kids can’t go to school. So I think everyone should be treated equal, healthy and safe.”
Abraham said her daughter is “healthy” because of her vaccines, “so sometimes it works out.”
Her fellow “Teen Mom” star, Kailyn Lowry, previously landed in hot water after revealing that she didn’t vaccinate her youngest child.
In a January interview, she said:
“Lux is 18 months, and he is not vaccinated. He hasn’t really ever been sick, and for me, I think the more research that I do and the more educated I’ve become, [I’m thinking] just don’t vaccinate him.”
