The story of Mariah Walton has captured national headlines recently, highlighting the tragic impact these laws can have. Mariah had a condition at birth that, had it been treated by a doctor, would have given her a chance for a healthy life, rather than becoming disabled and unable to survive without intensive care. She is now suing her parents and demanding justice.
Mariah is one child too many harmed by Idaho's religious exemption for child abuse and neglect. The Secular Coalition for Idaho is seeking volunteers to help advocate for an end to this state-sanctioned child abuse, and we need your help.
No child should be forced to endure what Mariah has. Secular citizens like you need to speak up and let lawmakers know that religion is never a justification for medical neglect. Contact [email protected] to learn how you can help protect children like Mariah.
