Mum started a crowd-funding appeal to stop her former partner from vaccinating their two children.

NEWS.COM.AU reports, Anna Patel, from Caboolture in Queensland, posted an appeal on the GoFundMe website asking for help to raise $10,000 for a lawyer to stop her “ex-partner from vaccinating”.

She wrote: “Both our children, now 7 and 3, have never been vaccinated and he knows that the issue is very important to me.

“He is now trying to force me through court to get the children vaccinated.”

“No Solicitor will help without upfront fees of minimum $10,000. I need help to raise this money.” she wrote on GoFundMe.

Anil Patel, 58, said he wanted his children vaccinated because he was concerned for their health.

“I am concerned about the kids not being vaccinated because of the rising incidence of some of these ailments,” Mr Patel said.

“I’ve had to step up now, my biggest concern is that they could catch these diseases,” he said. “This is what happens when parents separate and one wants to vaccinate and the other doesn’t.”

  • If her case was good, Legal Aid would assist. She can always represent herself (although probably not terribly effective). $10,000 is just the beginning – and how will she fund her husbands costs if she loses?

    I don’t like this kind of thing as a GoFundMe cause. Start thinking about the kids and their needs.


  • why should others pay for your legal battle? there is such a thing as legal aid, although likely they would have laughed her out of the office as surely the courts will see this as a frivolous suit? The data is there to support a need for vaccination, no matter how many times I read about how it is sanitation and clean water that stopped these diseases, not the vaccines I cannot find irrefutable proof of this and as such, fully support this father who is taking an active stance on the health of his children.


  • Whether to or not is the parents problem. To involve others in it is wrong, From i can find out not many are helping her. I have a child who did not get all his whooping cough vacs, that was my decision after he had a violent reaction to it and ended up in hospital for a few days. He ended up with a modified version in his teens, not very pretty to live with. My other 5 children are up to date with theirs.
    Both parents have rights but to err on the fathers as have seen deaths or disabilities from not having them. These were before some of these vacs came out.


  • So she doesn’t want her children vaccinated. Their Dad doesn’t want them to catch diseases, which in some cases can be permanently debilitating or fatal. They can also spread the disease to others if they catch it. The Mum has a very selfish attitude.


  • My first reaction was that I wouldn’t support an anti vaxxer. After looking at the links (thanks ladies), it rather looks like she should be in jail.


  • I think a go find me page should be set up for the father. There is a serious lack of support for full time single dads. My brother is one and he can’t do boo without having to get things signed by their mother who abandoned them and hasn’t even tried to make contact. Literally has nothing to do with the kids but every legal document is “mothers signature”. Stand up for the daddies! My second problem with this is the ignorance of this stupid woman and those that are supporting her. The only reason to not vaccinate is if your child for legitimate medical reasons can’t have it or if a bad batch is made and all children turn into zombies and start an apocalypse


  • Start Googling her name and also the name Anna Stancombe/Patel. An eye opener!


  • Using your kids to rip people off? Wrong!


  • I went looking for this go fund me campaign to see how much money she had raised out of curiosity. I typed in her name and came up with 2 campaigns. I found the second one of much more interest. I’m posting a link to anyone who may be interested. It sure does paint a different picture.


    • Thanks for the link! It’ really astonishing what she does!

      • The campaign has been removed so I can’t see what it was!!
