What’s amazing about this story is how little attention it will get.

How many other children in this country die because parents choose God over medicine?

How many are never reported?

1. I remember a situation like this..

I had been working at a Hospital in Santa Barbara at the time. There had been a car accident. The kids and family were bought to the hospital ER. The parents were fine but one little girl was seriously injured. The parents told the doctors to do nothing. It was in God's hands and they refused to let the young girl get a transfusion. She died.. and the other guy who had hit their car was now up on manslaughter charges, because the parents refused treatment for the girl. Had she lived, the other driver would have received far, far less of a sentence.

2. Family Guy did an episode on this once,

but not once have I heard anything about it in the media, even on MSNBC and Current.
