    I read that this morning, so heartbreaking, I couldn't imagine, and don't want too.

    Looks like another case of Scientologists kill a child.

    My heart goes out to them.

    A couple of things, Shai, because I find your statement recklessly judgmental. It doesn't seem to be known definitely yet whether or not the boy was taking medication, and if not, whether the reason was his parents beliefs or the fact that his seizures did not respond to medication (many don't.)


    If someone needs to point fingers and issue blame, I'd be more inclined to wonder why he was unsupervised in a bathroom, if he routinely had life-threatening seizures, regardless of whether or not he was on medication.


    As far as Scientology goes, it appears that it is primarily psychiatric drugs they seem to be against. Scientology is not alone in it's position on medication either. Christian Scientists, for example. There may be others I'm not familiar with.

    I certainly find the suggestion that these parents killed their son saddening :(

    16 is just too young. It's never ok or justifiable at that age.

    This is very true. My sister died of a grand mal seizure and she was on powerful medication.

    Zen - seizures, even violent ones, are so rarely life threatening that generally the risk isn't worth the lack of privacy 24/7. My sister began having violent grand mal seizures at the age of 18, and sometimes she had them in the shower, etc... but she would never have wanted to live a life where she had no ability to have a truly private moment.

    She did not die from a fall, but rather due to the portion of her brain that was affected during her final seizure - it shut down her involuntary muscles and her heart and lungs simply stopped. She'd had falls before, sometimes bad ones. But what took her out was entirely unpreventable.

    My heart very much goes out to this family, as well.
