Oregon Bill Targets Faith-Healing Murder Alibi
This community has been in the news for years with dead child after dead child - I’m happy that someone is taking action to protect the innocent children from these faith killers.
Shocked by repeated deaths of children whose parents belong to a small Oregon church, the state House voted unanimously to remove faith healing as a legal defense for murder.
Law enforcement agencies have been struggling to persuade members of the Followers of Christ church in Oregon City to seek medical help for their children instead of relying on prayer.
The small Followers of Christ cemetery near the end of the Oregon Trail includes row after row of headstones marking the graves of children.
Lawmakers’ 59-0 vote sends the bill to the state Senate.
