Oregon is one of the few states in the nation that allows parents to use faith healing as a defense to murder charges. But that may soon change. Thursday, the Oregon House passed a bill that would eliminate this defense. KBND talked to the bills’ chief sponsor, Dave Hunt of Clackamas County: “We've had a series of problems in Clackamas County and some other counties. The most recent example with thru the 'Followers of Christ Church', where parents have refused to give their children medical treatment and those children have ended up disfigured or dead when they clearly would've been cured or lived had they received proper medical treatment."   The bill passed with no opposition; and Hunt says there is also strong support in the House. Oregon is one of only three states with a religious defense to murder; one of only three states with a religious defense to manslaughter, and the only state with a religious defense to both crimes.
