Christian Science and Life Insurance

Insurance World

A great deal of rot has appeared in papers concerning the rejection of persons who believe in Christian Science, as risks for life insurance. Probably no sanely conducted company would permit the prejudice of its medical department to prevent it from accepting a risk upon a life which was otherwise unexceptionable, just because the applicant was a Christian Scientist. The fact is, that most physicians believe that the average man is too prone to take medicines, and that a man who would not take them at all would, if in thoroughly good health at the outset, be quite likely to live as long as the average man, who doses himself every time any little thing goes wrong. Medical science has not yet become an exact science, and while some of the views of Christian Scientists and believers in faith cures, are most amusing, all physicians are aware that mental conditions have as much to do with cures as the medicines.—Insurance World.
