OREGON CITY, Ore. – When Dr. Seth Asser saw row after row of flat headstones marking children’s graves in a small cemetery not far from the end of the historic Oregon Trail, he knew many of these early deaths should not have happened.

The children’s parents relied on faith healing, instead of doctors.

The pediatrician published a landmark study concluding many of the deaths could have been prevented if the children had received medical care.

“What struck me was the fact that it was obvious from the expressions on the headstones that the children were loved,” Asser said. “So it was especially troublesome they were not afforded the care that most parents would give their children.”

Child deaths test faith-healing exemptions – Kids and parenting-

Like most “doctors” these days..they don’t care about the patients..they are only worried aobut the number of kickbacks they get from the drug companies.  Modern doctors don’t care about their patients..they see them as $$$.  These parents did not trust “modern” medicine…jsut as i don’t.  NOTHING is done to any of my children or myself if i do’t approve of it…and frankly most of the crap they pass ojf as care is not needed.

That being said i have a peditrician whom i am less mistrustful of because he does not rush to the prescription pad at the first hint of an issue…i keep a very close eye on him though..:)
