Possible liability of parents for denying medical care to child due to religious reasons, and issues related to vaccines, ... again

I have posted a number of comments on the possibility of imposing liability on parents when they cause an injury to a child when refusing to provide medical care because of religious beliefs. See here.  I have also posted on the relationship of this issue and the debates on vaccines.  See here

Here is an update: The California state Senate just overruled a long-standing law that permitted parents with religious and philosophical reservations to send their children to public and private schools without their shots.

Slate has a recent article on the issue called "Faith Healing Kills Children."  You can read it  here.
