Some religious groups are forcing faith healing in states such as Idaho, which offers protection from prosecution for religious rights.
Nearly 200 victims in Idaho, (infants, children and teens), have died while being denied medical treatment by parents demanding faith healing only. Others are suffering from long-term complications due to lack of treatment.
Babies are dying from fevers that could be treated easily at hospitals. Even broken bones are ignored in favor of faith healing.
The testimonies of abuse have not convinced Idaho’s legislators to change the laws to protect the children.
