With parents speaking out from every State in the Union, this federal action taken will ensure that those calls are heard. The dramatic rise of the diagnosing of subjective mental illnesses and the forced drug “treatment” on children in the public education system has reached the Senate. On our website alone, www.ablechild.org we have over 300 signatures of parents nationwide that have experienced this coercion to drug their children by schools.
America is clearly facing a crisis regarding the lack of informed consent and the right to refuse psychological services and drug treatments promoted by the mental health industry within the school system.
Mr. Lawrence Smith, whose son died from heart failure caused by a prescribed stimulant recommended by the school, couldn’t have put it more clearly to the point when he stated that, “I cannot go back and change things for us at this point; however, I hope to God my story and information will reach the hearts and minds of many families, so they can make an educated decision.” The Child Medication Safety Act would prevent families like the Smith’s from losing their children needlessly by undue pressure to use behavioral drugs via the education system.
We encourage the media to educate parents of the dangers associated with the labeling and drugging of our children currently being promoted and pushed with selective research within the public education system. We commend Senator Ensign for his courage to sponsor such an important basic parental rights bill. We continue to encourage all parents to reach out to their federal senators and request that they sign onto this important bill as well. Only by doing this, will parents protect their right to choose and ensure their children’s health, safety, and well-being.
