CDC’s Dr. Paul Offit bases his end to religious exemptions on cases such as this: In 2009, Herbert and Catherine Schaible chose prayer instead of antibiotics for their 2-year-old son, Kent, who died from bacterial pneumonia. The Schaibles received 10 years’ probation. Recently, their 8-month-old son died without medical care. Their other seven children have now been removed from the home. Were they Christian Scientists?
In 2002, an anonymous caller alerted authorities to the neglect of 9-year-old Benjamin Reinert. Benjamin’s father, Paul Reinert, was a member of Faith Tabernacle. Child-protection workers visited twice and instructed the father to seek medical care if the boy’s condition worsened. One day later, Benjamin Reinert was dead. An autopsy revealed that the boy had died from a treatable form of leukemia.
VLA comment: Compare these generally uncommon cases to the thousands and thousands of deaths, paralyses, narcolepsy, neurodegeneration, autism, angelman’s syndrome and all other iatrogenic deaths and crushing disabilities caused by medicine and faulty science. “Treatable form of leukemia”….what is that? Could it be a series of torturous chemotherapies and radiation that this parent chose to pass on?
Authentic religious families, meditators and the enlightened ones understand that passing from this dimension to another is just one more door we pass through in our joy to explore eternity. Our eternal God-given sovereignty trumps the shackles of ever-changing man made laws. This supreme sovereignty permits us to choose to either stay in this dimension or not. Every death is a suicide! It is just that it is either consciously chosen or unconsciously chosen-in default mode. Whether by cancer, by accident or by an overdose…how aware are we? We as individual sovereign beings will realize by and by that we have perfectly attracted the circumstances of our lives. We live long…we live short. Some may choose to stay in a life chronically ill, cut up by surgeons and in ceaseless pain. Other may choose to move on. A child incarnating in a certain set of parent’s is tied karmically to those parents and in the domain of cosmic choice those parents are in their grid of alignment. Totalitarianism is very close at hand when a State comes between a parent and a child.
