Review for CHILDRENS HEALTHCARE IS A LEGAL DUTY INC, Lexington, KY, USA
CHILD does wonderful work in the legislative field which has been discussed in other reviews. And that is absolutely vital. The legal issues MUST be brought to the public’s attention.
But religious abuse also causes emotional trauma. The unseen psychological damage that can be caused by faith-healing religions can literally destroy people’s lives. Even if you are not subjected to VISIBLE horrible deaths and illnesses, being exposed to this type of irrational thinking can cause deep INVISIBLE lifelong damage.
Having been denied medical care as a child, I had many difficulties which had a negative impact on my adult life. For example, I suffered from untreated asthma and allergies. Granted, these are not life-threatening, but can make life extremely difficult and cause significant emotional fallout. I consider CHILD as “Adult Children of Christian Scientists.” (You can insert the name of any other damaging religion.) We suffered many abuses similar to those that children of alcoholics and other addicts are subjected to.
CHILD educates the public. Bringing the abuse to the public’s attention through the legal channels will help all affected children.
