Review for Childrens Healthcare Is A Legal Duty Inc, Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

this organization does amazing work with a limited budget. Rita and her husband helped change the statutes in oregon that allowed parents to avoid their legal duty to provide medical care to their children. these parents were using spiritual treatment as their only method of providing medical care to their children. many of these children died because of this neglect. we started to eliminate these statutes in 1999 and finished with the last 4 statutes this session. the governor has signed the bill into law. without rita's dedication to this issue the statutes would never have been changed. the children of oregon are eternally grateful to her hard work.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & i worked with rita to lobby the legislators in oregon to change the statutes.
