Imagine A World Without Informed Consent

Imagine A World Without Informed Consent

Ablechild’s mission of informed consent is more important than ever. As a nonprofit organization established by two mothers in 2001, we have witnessed our share of changes in this nation. Some changes have been excellent, like the passing of the Prohibition on Mandatory Medication Amendment, a historical law that we worked hard on that prohibits school teachers or personnel from recommending any controlled substance as a requisite for attending school. AbleChild could not have achieved this without your help.

FDA Responds to AbleChild’s MedWatch PSA Request for Public Education

FDA Responds to AbleChild’s  MedWatch PSA Request for Public Education

Recently, AbleChild requested that the FDA run their own PSA (Public Service Announcement) to educate the public on how to report Adverse Drug Reactions directly to the Agency.  The FDA’s response to our request is shocking, as they state that because MedWatch is a “voluntary” program, there is no need to run the PSA to educate the people on its existence and importance.

The Beginning

Founded in 2001 by parents who had their own personal experiences with label and drug coercion by the education system, Ablechild has a personal commitment to inform, support, and unite others faced with all aspects involving labeling and drugging children. Ablechild has a full understanding of what a parent/caregiver goes through when dealing with school systems recommending, and many times pressuring a parent for mental health evaluations. We recognize that schools will many times force-feed mental health approaches on parents, while steering clear of science-based education resources and solutions.

We Need You

AbleChild is nothing without our supporters. Our organization is non-profit and we rely on support from our community to keep our services alive. Join us our on our journey to inform the world by donating financially, sharing our information, or following us on social media. Thanks to everyone who makes this possible!

Informed Consent

Knowing that informed consent is a must and a critical component in making an educated decision, Ablechild and many of its individual members have worked diligently since 2001 to provide the public with extensive information at Federal, State, and Local Governmental hearings, at educational conferences, events, Governmental meetings, and throughout national and local media circuits. We have directly advocated and worked on creating laws that would strengthen “Informed Consent” and guarantee a person's “Right to Refuse” psychological testing and services via the education system.

Many members of this organization have advocated directly for state and federal legislation outlawing school personnel from recommending psychotropic drugs for children within schools across the nation. We can proudly say that our organization and the united efforts of its members were instrumental in the lobbying and passing of the Federal law entitled “Prohibition on Mandatory Medication Act”. This law is now part of the 2004 Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) and stands as the first of its kind, outlawing forced child drugging on a federal level.
