Parents guilty of eczema baby manslaughter

There have been emotional scenes at a Sydney court where a homeopath and his wife were found guilty of the manslaughter of their baby daughter.

Thomas Sam and his wife Manju Sam were convicted over the death of their nine-month-old Gloria.

The baby girl had severe eczema and died of septicemia in 2002.

After a four-week trial the Supreme Court jury took less than two days to reach its decision.

The Crown argued the couple did not seek conventional medical treatment for their child, instead treating her with homeopathic drops.

The defence argued the couple were not warned about how sick the child was by medical staff who examined her.

Thomas and Manju Sam sat in the dock with their arms around each other, crying as the verdict was read out.

Thomas Sam’s brother, who was in the public gallery, collapsed sobbing and was taken outside.

Both were granted bail with strict conditions ahead of their sentencing hearing.

How many times does one have to say it. Sugar pills can kill.

Young scientists have condemned it. Their excellent efforts were reported in The Guardian and in the Times). Anyone with half a brain condemns it.

Most homeopaths I’ve met are genuine people who really believe their own fairy tales. Is being genuinely deluded absolve you from blame? Not in Australia, it seems.
