And what about Healthcare as well?[edit]

I'd also like to know and is curious about how as it isn't mention about them having a medical or healthcare facility neither about how they handle healthcare in their very isolated community. So please also as well tell me how they'd handle healthcare in their isolated Compound(enclosure) and such. Thanks.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 03:00, 20 March 2009

According to two first-hand accounts of life in the FLDS (Carolyn Jessop's "Escape" and Elissa Wall's "Stolen Innocence"), medical care is suboptimal in the FLDS community. Some members do not believe in seeking healthcare, but only of seeking to heal oneself through prayer. Both accounts discuss the presence of a midwife in the community who assists with childbirth and in some cases prenatal care (with permission from a woman's husband), and Carolyn Jessop's account mentions two nurse practitioners in the FLDS community who began prescribing antidepressants for FLDS women in the early 2000's, but otherwise medical care is negligible. Since medical providers are mandated reporters of child abuse and FLDS members are generally anxious to avoid detection of their polygamous practices, they are often hesitant to seek medical care. In some cases when emergencies have arisen, FLDS members have been taken to nearby mainstream hospitals, but this depends on permission from the relevant patriarch of the patient [1][2]..

Not a church[edit]

This is not a church but a cult. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:45:4942:472F:8C61:BEAD:BF10:FC8F (talk) 11:06, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Seed Bearers?[edit]

I wonder if a mention of the recently brought to light practice of "seed bearers" might be worth mentioning. CNN has some details here.--Surv1v4l1st (Talk|Contribs) 04:49, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

There is a somewhat related article here. This new "revelation" might warrant inclusion. --Surv1v4l1st Talk|Contribs 03:51, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
