Worst Defense of the Century

Carl and Raylene Worthington of Oregon had a 15-month-old daughter Ava who got sick with bacterial bronchial pneumonia and an infection, both of which could have been cured with common antibiotics. Her parents preferred treating her with prayer. Now she's dead. Here's their defense:
A Clackamas County, Ore., couple accused of letting their infant daughter die by relying on prayer, rather than medicine, today asked that the charges be dropped, arguing that they infringe on their freedom of religion and their right to raise their children in their own way.
Guess what, you loonballs? The state can't be infringing on your right to raise your child in your own way because your child is dead.
