Medicine v. Miracle

A great story here in the American Medical Association's on religion-based medical neglect. The story focuses on events in Oregon, where members of the Followers of Christ Church have been implicated in dozens of apparently preventable child deaths. (I focused on the church in my book When Prayer Fails.) There are great quotes from a variety of experts. The full story is available here.

There has to be parental accountability when children are neglected. No parent should be allowed to have their chidlren suufer by refusing medical treatment. Using religion as an excuse is a simple copout.
