Kelly Preston went on a Television crusade against chemicals in the home environment, yet mysteriously insisted on frequent carpet cleaning for their home.

He had some health problems.
Some say Autism, some say down syndrome, some say other things.
But he did have and was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease.
I know that sounds a little funny like maybe he rode a motorcycle or something.
But it is actually a serious life threatening disorder.
I don't much like Scientology or the Scientologists.
But I think John Travolta isn't such a bad guy, and really didn't deserve this.
And I feel sorry for him as a parent, because hes lost his son.
He could have had some kind of cardiac event that caused him to fall.
That could be classified as a seizure.
He has probably been kept alive for the last 16 years by the wonders of modern medicine.
He has probably had many events and seizures, it just so happens this one caused him to sustain a fatal injury.

When there he had a typical autistic outburst, and Kelly simply looked at the nanny, said "deal with it" and continued to watch the film while Jett was led away. Does that sound like a rational, careing parent to you?
My point was, that when anyone denies their children proper medical care, it is wrong.
While you talk about his having Kawasakis disease at two, Kelly and John continued to claim that Kawasakis was the sole reason for Jetts health issues, and treated it with Scientology based methods.
The Cult of Scientology has a long and established history of doing just that. Perhaps you should look at what happened to Lisa McPherson before you claim that this is only some uncredited story from an entertainment rag.
A recent report confirms that John Travolta's lawyer and close friend, Michael McDermott, and family attorney Michael Ossi, both of whom are with John in the Bahamas, stated to the press and police that two nannies were present on the trip and were by Jetts side constantly. There was a baby monitor device by Jett's side and there was also a chimer in the bathroom to alert when the door opened. Unwell 16 year olds do not in general need baby monitoring devices just to go to the bathroom. This is typical of the level of care needed with autistic children.
If a parent has a child that is diagnosed with diabetes, and chooses to follow a religious treatment of feeding them nothing but oatmeal, when the child dies at a young age, would the parents have any responsibility? What about the parents of a child with leukemia, who choose to do nothing because it is gods will? (true case)
By denying the existence of Autism, did John and Kelly do the right thing? That is the point of this thread. Not to make fun of Jett, or laugh at his very tragic death, but to point out the danger of Cults and how much they can control their victims lives.
