Oregon Court Upholds Convictions of Couple Who Sought ‘Faith Healing’ Instead of Doctor for Baby

Dale and Shannon Hickman are members of the Followers of Christ church in Oregon City, which the state said has a long history of children dying from preventable conditions because their parents refused them medical care.
