HR 34: A violation of your right to be free from forced drugging, psychiatry and a host of other government intrusions

3 Comments

URGENT ACTION ALERT

On November 30th, the House passed HR 34, a 996-page bill, known as the 21st Century Cures Act. They are now rushing to get it introduced and passed by the Senate on Monday, December 5th, at 5:30 EST. This bill must be defeated because it contains some very dangerous provisions relating to psychiatric treatments.  This is an urgent call to action as we must let our Senators know that they need to oppose it.  We have less than 72-hours to do this.
TALKING POINTS ON WHY THIS BILL MUST BE OPPOSED:
*         It drastically broadens the criteria for who qualifies for forced psychiatric treatment.  For example, if you are labeled mentally ill, you can be court-ordered for psychiatric treatment just because you are “substantially unlikely to voluntarily participate in treatment.”  All states already have their own laws regarding involuntary treatment and so there is no need for Federal legislation, especially with such dangerously broad language.
*         It undermines FDA regulations that are essential for making sure medical and drug research is conducted ethically, scientifically and safely.  Meaning it could cost lives. 
*         Additionally, this 996-page bill is being fast-tracked through as it is being introduced with no time for the Senators to fully study and understand the broad implications of it.
If you live in the United States, we need you to do the following, very simple actions-it will take you less than 10 minutes:
1.    Find your Senators (you have TWO) at the end of this e-mail. They are listed alphabetically by state.
2.    Call the listed numbers and, using any or all of the above talking points, tell them you want to urge the Senator to vote NO on HR 34. Note: Calls are the most effective way to make your voice heard.
3.    Click on the contact link for each of your TWO senators. This brings you to a form to fill out which you follow the steps to email your message that you want them to vote NO on HR 34.
4.    Forward this e-mail to ALL family members, friends, or colleagues that live in the United States and urge them to do the same.

Please make your calls and send your e-mails right away, then e-mail us back to let us know you have done so.

Inconvenient Truths About Big Pharma and the Psychiatric Industry: A Tribute to Whistle-Blowing Psychiatrists Peter Breggin and Loren Mosher

Duty to Warn

The Drugs May Be The Problem

new-logo25By Gary G. Kohls, MD

 

The title of this column, The Drugs May Be The Problem is also the title of a Citizens Commission on Human Rights-sponsored seminar that I will be presenting on October 8, 2016 in St Paul, MN.

I stole the main title from Dr Peter Breggin’s ground-breakng book Your Drug May Be Your Problem: How and Why to Stop Taking Psychiatric Medications. I, along with thousands of Big Pharma skeptics, regard Breggin as a valued mentor. I have spent many hours studying his books and they occupy a significant section in my personal library.

Peter Breggin is the giant of psychiatric whistle-blowers and a huge thorn in the flesh of the super-wealthy and super-powerful multinational psycho-pharmaceutical corporations (and much of academic psychiatry) ever since his  first ground-breaking book was published in 1991.

The title of that book was Toxic Psychiatry: Why Therapy, Empathy and Love Must Replace the Drugs, Electroshock and Biochemical Theories of the ‘New Psychiatry’.

2016 happens to be the 25th anniversary of Toxic Psychiatry and I am dedicating my seminar to Breggin.  Soberingly, Breggin’s books are essentially banned books in polite medical establishment circles. His titles are rarely found in mainstream book-seller’s stores. His courageous truth-telling has resulted in his being treated as a banned author. His ideas are considered heretical in mainstream psychiatry, which makes his books continue to be somewhat popular for psychiatric survivors who know they have been sickened or made worse by the drugs.

Among the approximately 2 dozen books Breggin has written in his long career as author and practicing psychiatrist (who is still actually curing his patients at age 80) is his Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry: Drugs, Electroshock and the Role of the FDA (1997, revised in 2008).

Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry exposed the corrupted pseudoscience that has enabled the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and academic psychiatry to thrive by foisting their addictive and brain-damaging synthetic psych drugs and electroshock “treatments” onto an unsuspecting and naive healthcare industry (and the brain-washed populace) despite the peer-reviewed (but obscurely) published scientific research from a number of altruistic and under-funded neuroscientists who haven’t been co-opted by the amoral multinational pharmaceutical corporations that are collectively known as Big Pharma.

The full title of Dr Breggin’s 1999 book was Your Drug May Be Your Problem: How and Why to Stop Taking Psychiatric Medications. Dr David Cohen was co-author.

Psychiatrist William Glasser wrote the following in the forward to the first edition:

“Nowhere does the false medical thinking (that there is a drug cure for almost all common diseases) do more harm than in the modern psychiatric argument that mental illness is easily diagnosed and then cured by a side-effect-free drug. Nowhere is the correct psychiatric thinking more evident than in the books by Peter Breggin. In them he explains clearly that patients with mental illnesses are in almost all instances suffering from their inability to connect with important people in their lives and need help in making these vital connections. He supports safe, drug-free counseling as a more effective way to help people, and I enthusiastically agree with this premise.” More

New Mexico Law Prohibits Forced Psychiatric Drugging of Children

5 Comments

Published on Mar 3, 2016

New Mexico State Legislator Nora Espinoza introduced the strongest parental rights bill against child drugging ever to be passed in the United States. The bill stipulates there can be no forced psychiatric drugging of school children; No mental screening of children without parental consent, and that no government entity can remove a child from their parent’s custody, when the parent refuses to administer a mind-altering psychiatric drug to their child.

Childhood is Not a Mental Disorder

Leave a comment

You wouldn’t hesitate to dial 9-1-1 if you saw a child being physically threatened, beaten or abandoned.

Yet every day millions of children silently experience abuse at the hands of the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry—being falsely diagnosed and prescribed dangerous drugs, with many facing institutionalization.

Fortunately, Citizens Commission on Human Rights has been on the front lines of mental health reform since 1969… providing the antidote to the powers that continue to put profit before children’s lives.

Please watch this short video and arm yourself with 3 facts the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry doesn’t want you to know:

FACT #1: Over 8 million kids and adolescents in this country have been labeled as being “mentally ill.” Yet there are no brain scans, x-rays, genetic or blood tests that can prove this diagnosis. What is certain is that the 8.3 million children, more than one million age five and under, are prescribed dangerous and potentially lethal drugs to ingest.
FACT #2: In the U.S. alone, 286 regulatory agency warnings cite dangerous, often fatal side effects of the psychiatric drugs commonly prescribed to children. These include diabetes… heart problems… strokes… mania… psychosis… hallucinations… seizures… and worse.
FACT #3: Psychiatric drugs CAN KILL. Forty-one drug regulatory warnings cite suicide as a side effect of the drugs prescribed to children. Twenty-three different warnings cite sudden death. When placed on anti-depressants and similar medications, children die. That is a fact.
Don’t remain silent. Quickly learn what can be done to protect the millions of vulnerable kids who Citizens Commission on Human Rights advocates for each and every day.
Wear your support on your sleeve.
