Christian Scientists also claimed that fluoridation
violated the freedom of religion. At the hearing, James Watt,
a spokesman of Christian Science, testified that mass medication,
“constituted a violation of fundamental religious rights” by violating a
Christian Scientist’s right to heal with just prayer (U. S. Congress, 59).
Opponents argued that as long as alternatives to [this] water treatment
existed, fluoridation was unconstitutional and Un-American
due to its violations of individual rights.
