My mom's experience I only found out about this a few days ago, but my grandmother and mother had some experiences with Scientology. They weren't part of the religion of course, but my grandmother (when my mother was fairly young) used to babysit for a Scientologist couple in the 60's. My mother recalls her mother ironing the children's clothing, and telling her that the kid's parents were Scientologists and didn't believe in going to the doctor. (Not precisely what I recall from reading all this stuff, but, eh.) The kid was sick (mom doesn't remember if there was more than one child or not), and the parents weren't sure about what to do. Mom remembers they asked her mom what they should do; they seemed scared. She doesn't remember her mother's response but thinks it was probably that they should take the kid to the doctor. I'm sorry to say that mom doesn't remember anything else.
