The Oregon House and Senate have passed a bill that strengthens state laws related to faith healing and children. Parents who choose to rely on the power of God to heal their children, instead of seeking professional medical care would no longer be protected by Oregon Law, if the bill is signed into law by the Governor. The bill is a reaction to cases related to the followers of Christ Church in Oregon City. Two children died and one child suffering facial disfigurement because parents refused medical care in favor of faith. In all three cases, the conditions could have been remedied with basic medical attention. The bills received bi-partisan support.
