CHILDRENS HEALTHCARE IS A LEGAL DUTY INC
June 28, 2011

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

i have been able to provide medical care to children who otherwise would have continued in poor health as their parents only attempted to care for their sick kids with spiritual treatment.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more money to continue their good work on the behalf of children in the us.

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