An Idaho Faith-healing Family Lost Four Children

According to Los Angeles Times reporting, a family let their baby girl named Fern Lilly died inside her mother three days before her stillbirth on Nov. 27, 2014, in Canyon County, Idaho, US. The mother, Shippy, said that, the baby had been dead inside her womb for days, Yet she had sought no medical help when she’d felt the nearly full-term baby stop moving. She and her fellow Followers of Christ consider professional medicine an engine of the devil. Instead, she had prayed. 

Shippy and her husband have lost two other infants during childbirth, a girl and a boy. Another son died at 2 months old. In all, just three of their seven children are still alive. Such a grim litany is not uncommon for the Followers of Christ.  

 

Dan Sevy, a member of the Followers of Christ church, testifies in August before an Idaho legislative panel reviewing the state's faith-healing exemptions.  

In most states, failing to seek medical care for a nearly 40-week-old fetus might be a crime. Idaho is one of at least four states that provide religious groups broad exemptions from criminal prosecution and civil liability for the deaths of children attributable to medical neglect. 

Faced with three deaths linked to faith healing in the county over the last four months, Canyon County Sheriff Kieran Donahue has launched a campaign to change the law, and remove any religious exemptions for the legal obligation to seek medical care for children.

Donahue believes the law allows children to die unnecessarily, and painfully, in ways that the Followers of Christ may not medically understand. He has formed a unit in his department to investigate the death of every child connected to the group — and hopes his findings will prompt the coroner to conduct more complete death examinations of the children.
