Faith Healing and the Rights of the Child

Faith-healing is a topic that seems to come up regularly in Idaho. Why? Is this really about saving children or removing parental authority in the name of a child’s rights?

A French reporter was here in ID digging around about faith healing and I had to find out why.  France is one of 194 United Nation member states that have ratified the 1989 treaty UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child. 

There are several mechanisms in place to monitor the implementation of the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child.  This will include the child’s health to be monitored by the school, mandatory physicals, psychological checkups, and medical treatments.  School is mandatory and requires children with special education needs to be educated in mainstream classes. 

We can see clearly that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child means zero parental rights and complete ownership of children by the government. 

Could UN influences be targeting Idaho? Absolutely.

Protect Idaho Kids (PIK) has been working with C.H.I.L.D. and supported the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. PIK director Bruce Wingate has been working with Children’s Health Care is a Legal Duty (CHILD). The name of the group has changed to CHILD USA and its mission has expanded.

CHILD was involved in awarding California’s infamous Richard Pan for the passage of SB277 – the bill that removed philosophical and religious exemptions for vaccination of children attending school! They were also involved in CA SB18 which, if passed, would have greatly eroded parental rights. 

There is an AAP video of Pan receiving his Legislator of the Year Award. Isn’t it odd that the plaque presented by Offit came not from the AAP, but from CHILD?  CHILD is by all appearances a front group endorsing AAP, Pharma, and governmental financial interests and agendas.

CHILD Co-founder Rita Swan was given a lifetime achievement award from the Freedom FROM Religion Foundation.

Paul Offit, among other vaccine and medical industry insiders whose income depends on the legislation that CHILD works to legally mandate, is a member of CHILD’s Board of Directors and actively participated in the campaign set up by PIK.  Offit is not an ID resident yet he has joined PIK in the “Let Them Live” campaign which targets the current Faith Healing Exemption law in our state. Many citizens fear the removal of this exemption to be a slippery slope to further remove parental rights concerning the medical treatment of our children. 

This concern is validated by Offit when he stated that parents who choose not to vaccinate their children in accordance with the entire CDC recommended vaccine schedule should be forced to relinquish their children to the State. 

This underscores what some Health Freedom Idaho members have thought for a LONG time: This effort against the Followers, who avoid the use of allopathic medicine, most certainly includes the intention of getting laws in place to FORCE vaccination and other toxic medical procedures on our youngest and most vulnerable.
