Mariah Walton grew up struggling for every breath. Now at the age of 20, she awaits a heart and lung transplant. It started as a congenital heart defect – if only her parents would have taken her to the doctor. Her parents refused to seek medical prayer because they believed she could be healed through prayer. Now Mariah believes it’s time for her parents and people like them to take responsibility for endangering lives.
“I think it’s time to prosecute them,” she said.
Mariah is supporting legislation in Idaho that would require medical treatment for children in imminent danger of dying.
