Speech by former Christian Scientist against the religious exemption

Help me out here...  One of the most moving speeches I've heard was by a lady who was raised by Christian Scientist parents telling the story of how she hurt her leg as a young girl, but, because it went untreated (except, supposedly, by prayer) has now lost use of that leg.  I believe the speech was at an AAI or Secular Coalition conference, but can't find it now.  I believe the speech was a plea to drop a religious exemption from properly treating children.  Sorry I don't have more clues, but I'm sure someone can help me find it, and those who haven't heard it will appreciate it.  Thanks!

Not so cool, but I'm sure you guessed that.  Still a quick, important read, a poignant lesson on how religion gets a free pass from our government and causes pain & suffering.
