Kansas City (Mo.) Journal
The claim that there is no curative virtue in any but the "recognized" medical schools is contrary to the belief of large numbers of people who have rights in the premises that must be respected. Persons who have arrived at an age when they may, presumably at least, decide for themselves, have the right to invoke the methods of those who may not use drugs or other approved medical and surgical methods; and to brand as felons practitioners who do not subscribe to the doctrines of the "schools" is unfair.
Probably a large majority of people believe in sending for the doctor when they are sick and in taking the medicine he prescribes or submitting to the operations he performs; but this does not alter the fact that there is a growing belief in the efficacy of other means of curing some forms of disease or functional derangements. There may be nothing valuable in Christian Science, faith-curing, mental healing, and other so-called heterodox practices; then again, there may be a great deal. Legislation aimed at the belief of people of discretionary age is ill-advised, and the lawmakers have performed their full duty when they protect the people against quacks whose imperfect knowledge of drugs may result in imperiling human life.
