A set of parents turned to prayer in order to heal there daughter.
A woman’s heart and lung health was subjected to health complications when her parents made the decision to reject any treatment for their daughters health condition and sought prayer instead.
Now that her parents rejected care, she is intermittently in and out of the hospital. From Idaho, the 21-year old and her siblings have launched a campaign geared towards changing the state’s law to mandating parents who practice “faith healing” to be prosecuted.
“They used to pray over me. The’d say things like; ‘God’s going to heal you, just have faith’ and all kinds of stuff… I think it’s time to prosecute them”
The senator of Idaho, Lee Sneider, spoke out and said last year there was no plans to make a change in the states law, as religion is protected by the constitution, under the first amendment. Children’s Right to Live, a campaign group, says that there is a continued effort still going on to change the law, but cautioned that new proposals could endanger more lives.
One was geared towards “rearranging the left language in the laws to create the appearance of making reforms without actually changing anything substantive,” they said.“
Another would have made things worse by expanding the loophole to cover parents who neglect their children in the name of ideological as well as religious beliefs and practices.”
