One thought on “Is It Child Abuse?”

  1. No on all of the above.

    I remember many, many years ago, there was a news article where a family of a religion who doesn’t allow Dr’s. visits because “God will cure my child” whose eleven year old child was a diabetic, wasn’t on any medication, caused the child’s death at age eleven. The parents were charged with, I think, child neglect. I don’t remember if the parents did jail time. In my opinion, the parents should have gotten life imprisonment.
