Save me from divine intervention

The prosecution has wrapped its case against a Wisconsin mother accused of second-degree reckless homicide in the death of her 11-year-old daughter.

Leilani Neumann believed that prayer would make Madeline well. Madeline died on March 23, 2008 of untreated diabetes.

Doctors have testified the girl could have been saved even on the day she died, had her parents sought medical help.

Diabetes is a treatable, manageable disease, albeit a difficult one. In this day and age, in this country, we should not be reading stories like this.
