Courts Sustain Christian Science Practice
The utter futility of attempts to curtail individual liberty through legislative enactment is once more apparent in the field of medical legislation.
In 1901, the Indiana legislature passes a bill which was introduced and its passage urged by the physicians of the state, for the avowed purpose of putting a stop to the practice of Christian Science in that state. After the bill became a law, Christian Scientists continued to practise as usual and some considerable time elapsed before any attempt to interfere actively with them was made. Finally, however, Mrs. Emma J. Ehrit, a Christian Scientist residing in Martin Country, was indicted by the Grand Jury of that county, for "practising medicine without a license." A few days ago she was tried before a jury, and found not guilty.
We are indebted to Hon. Clarence A. Buskirk of Princeton, Ind., for the following statement of facts in connection with the trial of Mrs. Ehrit.
