Can you believe a dozen or so children die each year from parents practicing so-called “faith healing” rather than taking them to the doctor for treatable ill’s. Allowing children to die is inexcusable and ignorantly ranting against medicine and the medical community often forwards this kind of travesty.
rghPHILADELPHIA – August 7, 2013 (WPVI) — A judge refused to dismiss murder charges Wednesday against a fundamentalist Christian in the faith-healing death of his son, saying things might be different if another one of his children’s deaths hadn’t landed him and his wife in court four years ago.
Their probation in that case required Herbert and Catherine Schaible to seek immediate medical help if another child was sick or injured. But the Schaibles instead sat and prayed over 8-month-old son Brandon before he died of pneumonia in April, according to their statements to police.
