Deaths of Idaho Children in Anti-medical Sects

There is evidence that each of the 182 children and stillborns below were in families with religious beliefs against medical care. The evidence is either place of burial, obituaries, coroners’ records, and/or statements by ex-members. The deaths occurred after Idaho enacted religious exemptions to criminal injury, non-support, and manslaughter in 1971, giving parents a legal right to deprive children of lifesaving medical care on religious grounds.
