Senators approve ‘rebirthing’ resolution

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday urging states to pass laws against “rebirthing” therapy, which critics say has killed at least five children, including one in Colorado.

Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., joined with Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., to sponsor the resolution.

As Colorado attorney general, Salazar successfully argued to uphold the convictions of unlicensed therapists Connell Watkins and Julie Ponder, who were sentenced to 16 years in prison in the death of 10-year-old Candace Newmaker during an April 2000 “rebirthing” session in Evergreen.
