Idahoans protest faith healing exemptions in Boise

A march organized by Protect Idaho Kids rallied against Idaho’s faith-healing exemptions in Boise on Monday.

Despite windy conditions and cold temperatures, local leaders and clergy joined about 150 participants who marched through downtown Boise to the Idaho Statehouse, protesting Idaho’s faith-healing exemptions. They urged Idaho legislators to repeal immunity in state code for religious groups who deny children medical care based on religious beliefs.

Nearly every marcher carried signs and one or two small coffin frames — 183 in total — to symbolize the infants and children who advocates claim died due to medical neglect since Idaho enacted religious exemptions in the 1970s.
