Do you know anybody that refused medicine to a family member?

I knew a guy that chose religion over medicine and almost killed a family member. His wife divorced him because he was stupid tbis way. Have you met someone like this?

I have heard of Christians who believe in faith healing....to each its own!

I was friends with a young man that was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident and his parents refused to allow him to have a blood transfusion because they were Jehovah's Witnesses. He died.

I had a friend who, as an adult, chose death over medication because his religion, Christian Science as I recall, told him sickness was an illusion caused by lack of faith. He proved he had the faith, but also that his religion lied to him. RIP Ritchie.

I used to live with a christian scientist. They believe in practitioners and the power of prayer. I told her I get sick, take me to the VA hospital or any hospital. You get sick I call your practitioner and your church first reader. Neither of us got that sick. Unless is death threat I don't take medicines, not even aspirin for headache. I tough it out. I don't do vaccines. But I won't deny medical treatment to those in need.

My ex didn't want my daughter to be treated for ADD. Didn't want her to be controlled by a drug. She still needs it-scattered can't focus.

Those people are so ignorant, medican saves thousand of people. For the few that get messed up to many positives comes from medicine.
