Check the following statements Tory Christman made to the press recently, and compare them with the full story based on her 2003 affidavit.
This is a typical example on how anti-Scientologists will stretch the truth (in this case blatantly lying) to make it fit with their agenda.
One ex-Scientologist says when she suffered epileptic seizures 30 years ago, the church told her to stop her medication.
"So I started having grand mal seizures," recalls Tory Christman, "and I wasn't even off the medicine. I was only off part of the medicine, and I started having very bad grand mal seizures."
In an exclusive interview with LIVENEWS.com.au on Monday, former Scientologist Tory Christman added fuel to the fire, claiming the Church told her to stop taking drugs for her epilepsy via an unqualified medical advisor in the late 1990s
Tory Christman, who reached the upper echelons of the church, claims she was told to stop taking the drugs by an unqualified medical official, which led to her seizures returning and to her knocking her teeth out in the bath.
“It was a nightmare,” said Christman.
“I had grand mal seizures, I fell in the bathtub just like Jett did, and knocked out my front teeth. It was really bad. I was losing my memory.”
“My mother saved my life and realised it was really kooky and said either you get back on your medicine today or I’m going come out there and Scientology will never forget me.”
