Three Idahoans talk about Idaho laws on faith healing

Two small hands hold on to a larger hand.
Vladimir Agafonkin

Currently in Idaho, faith healing is legally exempt from medical neglect laws. The "Campaign to Protect Idaho Kids” has been working to change that.

In January they held a forum to talk about religious exemptions and they’ve created a new video designed to start conversations about this issue.

Joining Gemma to talk about this difficult issue are:

  • Former First Lady Patricia Kempthorne, Founder and CEO Twiga Foundation, Inc.
  • Roger Sherman, Executive Director Idaho Children’s Trust Fund/Prevent Child Abuse Idaho
  • Bruce Wingate, the founder of the “Protect Idaho Kids Foundation”

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
