Liberty Just in Case

A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Thank God, You’re Not MY Parents

A news report like this….makes me crazy. I feel so bad for the children, I want to immediately put the parents UNDER the jail.

Authorities say a teenager from a faith-healing family died from an illness that could have been easily treated, just a few months after a toddler cousin of his died in a case that has led to criminal charges.

Tuesday’s death of 16-year-old Neil Beagley, however, may not be a crime because Oregon law allows minors 14 and older to decide for themselves whether to accept medical treatment.

Remind me not to move to Oregon. I can remember when I was 16, I listened to my parents and I respected my parents and I certainly obeyed them and their decisions. If these 2 were my parents, I’d be DEAD.

In March, the boy’s 15-month-old cousin Ava Worthington died at home from bronchial pneumonia and a blood infection.

A simple visit to the doctor or a hospital, and the 2 kids would still be alive. This story is so sad, it’s absolutely…..maddening.
