Are the indifferent and irresponsible actions of faith-healing believers exploited by lawmakers...


as an excuse to intrude on general parental rights? Herbert and Catherine Schaible defied a court order to seek out medical treatment for their children and now face prison terms after allowing another child to die because they believe in "faith healing" and scorn medical help. While I find their actions contemptible, I sometimes fear the government may use such extremist actions as opportunity (excuse) to remove the rights of all parents to make educated decisions regarding their children's medical treatment. What do you think?
