Mom kidnaps daughter to stop vaccination, ‘brainwashing’ 

By George Mathis

1901380_723017244426314_8605961408883007282_nChildhood diseases once thought vanquished in this country are back, in large part because people like Megan Elizabeth Everett exist.

Everett, a mother from Sunrise, Fla., is sought on federal charges after kidnapping her 2-year-old daughter, allegedly to prevent the girl from being vaccinated and ever having to learn “black history.”

Everett, 22, was last seen on May 6, when the girl’s dad, Robert Baumann left Lilly with her mom in compliance with a shared custody agreement, reports the Sun-Sentinel. Everett was supposed to return Lilly to her dad a week later but she’s not been seen since.

The dad said Everett “wanted to home-school my daughter. I didn’t want that to happen. She didn’t want Lilly to learn about black history. She just wanted her to learn about the Confederacy.”

Baumann had planned to have his daughter vaccinated the next time he had custody, he said.

Everett may be in Georgia.

After having Lilly, she began living with Carlos Lesters, who is described in court documents as a Confederate-flag-waving gun enthusiast with family members in Georgia and Kentucky.

Lesters alleges he has no idea where his girlfriend took her daughter, but did share a note she left behind.

“You are a great dad,” Everett wrote. “If I let them take her and vaccinate her and brainwash her, I wouldn’t be doing what’s right. I cannot let a judge tell me how my daughter should be raised. We will miss you. But I had to leave.”

Lesters, who does not face criminal charges, said his girlfriend ain’t coming back.

In court documents Lesters is reported to have said Everett “knew she would have to live her life as a fugitive. However, in her mind, the time that she spent with her daughter ‘free’ of Baumann would be ‘worth it,’ regardless of how brief the time was.”

The Sun-Sentinel article features a large picture of the missing child playing with boxes of opened ammunition.

Vaccines and public education are probably less dangerous.

Tell one of the people whose babies under 12 months that can not be vaccinated  for measles and become deadly sick, because of these crazy anti vaccination crowd that are no longer vaccinating their kids for measles.


Maybe some of those nuts should ask those of us over 50 what it was like in the 50's and 60's getting measles, mumps, and chicken pox. I only got 2 of the three but remember. Now we are all likely to get shingles because we had chicken pox as kids. The whole class at school got sick and missed two weeks at a time. All your siblings got sick. Hopefully, your mother wasn't pregnant at the time and had a dead or deformed baby.


Then our parents remember their contemporaries getting polio. My father had a cousin in a wheelchair from polio.

And you will always have at least one poster who will try to mitigate the actions of an anti-vaccine, anti-public school, gun-loving, rebel-thumping dixiecrat.

Well apparently there's a whooping cough epidemic, easily prevented by vaccines, going around in the People's Republik of Kalifornia, the holy grail of "progressive" states.


Must be all that rebel flag-wavin', Bible thumpin', and such goin' on out there.  Quick! Somebody call the police!

Way to go mother. Not only do you increase the chances of your daughter getting sick, you also broke the law. You have taken this child's father out of her life and introduced her to real idiots. It can only be imagined what this child will experience and be taught. Mom the last thing you need to be worried about is black history.

The kind of story (if true) that liberal journalists must live for. Would imagine it caused quite a feeding frenzy in the AJC newsroom.

But our George bagged it!

This story is fishy. The Confederacy, black history, anti-vax, and homeschooling? Notice how the father is telling us what the mother supposedly said, but nothing directly from her intimating the same sentiments.

And yes, of course the state should take away kids from parents because they hold unorthodox or even crazy views. That would be GREAT for the kids wouldn't it? They could all get the government approved curriculum and be model citizens.

George Mathis - You start your article off with "Childhood diseases once thought vanquished in this country are back, in large part because people like Megan Elizabeth Everett exist." Please don't attempt to imply that all people who wish to skip or delay vaccinations are racist, alternative education supporting, gun enthusiasts. This woman doesn't quite sound all together, as evidenced by the fact that she would kidnap her own child. Her problems are probably not shared by most other people. And before anyone decides I'm somehow a radicalized "anti-vaccine nut", both of my kids are vaccinated however not on the rushed, over-crowded schedule put out by the CDC.

Take the kid away from her crazy mom.  There are too many of these anti-vaccine nuts out there.

@TFWa, why exactly do you think you're smarter than the entire CDC? Are you one of those proud University of Google graduates? 

Anti-vax nutters are proof the internet makes the dumb even dumber.

@TFWa They aren't implying that anti-vaccination proponents are "racist, alternative education supporting, gun enthusiasts."  To point out the quote you used, the reporter stated that childhood diseases are back because, in part, of people not vaccinating.  That's a truthful statement.  The crazy racist stuff came after that sentence and the two were never mentioned as being causal to the other.
