Citizens Commission On Human Rights
President Bush Signs Landmark Legislation Prohibiting Forced Psychiatric Drugging of Schoolchildren
Celebrities, Parents, Legislators and Civil Rights Groups Win Victory for Children's Rights with Passage of the "Prohibition on Mandatory Medication Amendment"
LOS ANGELES - Celebrities Lisa Marie Presley, Kelly Preston, Kirstie Alley, Jenna Elfman and Juliette Lewis joined the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog established by the Church of Scientology, in applauding Congress for passing precedent-setting legislation that bans school personnel forcing parents to drug their children for classroom or behavioral problems. In order to receive federal funds under the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA), the "Prohibition on Mandatory Medication Amendment," was signed into law by President Bush today and requires schools to implement policies that prohibit schoolchildren being forced onto psychiatric drugs as a requisite for their education.
Hundreds of parents across America have been pressured to put their school-aged children onto cocaine-like stimulants or antidepressants for which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just ordered a "black box label" warning of the drugs' high risk of causing suicide among children and adolescents. Ms. Kelly Preston, who met with members of Congress in June last year to enlist support of the amendment, said, "Every mother has an inherent right to protect her child from harm. However, many mothers have been denied that right because psychiatrists have inundated unwitting teachers with the false opinion that educational and behavioral problems are symptoms of 'mental disorders' that require mind-altering drugs. This law gives hope for a new era in education, one where teachers are free to work with parents to find academic solutions instead of unworkable and harmful psychiatric treatments that benefit no one but the psychiatric industry."
Many groups supported the amendment, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the National Foundation of Women Legislators (NFWL), Parents for a Label and Drug Free Education, as well as numerous state and federal legislators.
Bruce Wiseman, the U.S. President of CCHR says, "Psychiatrists did not want to let go of their stronghold of American schools and launched massive counter efforts to kill this legislation. However, people are waking up to the fact that psychiatric 'mental disorders' have absolutely no scientific/medical validity and that psychiatrists falsely portray them as a disease or physical condition to convince teachers and parents that these are medical issues, which is a complete fraud. Psychiatric 'disorders' are simply checklists of behaviors-symptoms presumed to be related-and voted by members of the American Psychiatric Association to be included in their insurance billing bible, the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This has been used to justify the administration of dangerous drugs to more than 8 million children. Parents and teachers were never informed about documented side effects of many of these drugs, including suicide, violence, mania and psychosis."
CCHR says the next step in educational reform is to remove psychiatric and psychological testing and screening from schools which are the feeder lines to psychiatrists who have made turning schools into mental health clinics a business. Millions of students are now dependent upon psychiatric drugs or are taking them illegally. CCHR, joined by scores of parents and civil rights groups, say the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health's recommendations for mandatory mental health screening in school is a frightening representation of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, in which Huxley describes a controlled "utopian" civilization achieved with the "technique of suggestion-through infant conditioning and, later, with the aid of drugs." While the "Prohibition on Mandatory Medication Amendment" will help prevent some of psychiatry's propensity to drug all normal childhood behavior, many charge that the spurious sounding "Freedom Commission on Mental Health" and its recommendations will open another door to dangerous conditioning leading to massive increases in psychotropic drugging of a new generation.
Dr. Julian Whitaker, director of California's Whitaker Wellness Center warns that the motive behind mandatory mental health screening of children is obvious: "That means drugging them!" For psychiatry, this means, "52 million potential customers." He offers this advice to parents: "First of all, refuse to sign those consent forms when they come home from your child's school-if they can't test them, they can't drug them."
CCHR will monitor the implementation of this law so that any parent who may still experience coercion to drug their child can contact CCHR to report this and for assistance.

Scientology? That should bring you some interesting flack bushie. I hope not but that seems to be a no no word on this FREE ZONE SCIENTOLOGY NCN site. heh heh Thankyou so much for this article. Not because of its' mention of anything having to do with '$CN' but because of the content...'the collusion between 'Psychiatry' (not at all a science) and the Medical Pharmaceutical complex.' Drugging children! Yes, "ritlin" and worse used for non existant 'conditions!' This is "historical" if it will do any good. But then at the same time we have "The war on drugs!" Oi!

Historical, in that it does set a pressident, that child welfare can no longer bust parents for not drugging thier kids. Maybe in the long run this law will cause education to become far more diversifyed than it is now. Still there will be those people that push the ADDH drugs, at least parents can make a choice without fear. With compuers and the net, home schooling is an obviouse choice, as there are net schools popping up all over the world. Well, you know my view on the war on drugs, lol. Leagalize them, destroy the black market for them. Only, as we know, we kind of need the black market, like after any involved war, the war ends, people lose jobs. Then, they must be retrained, a little easyer to do these days due to web based education. Mostly getting the word out to parents that they no longer have to fear reprizals from those in athority of your kids, while they are being educated thru public education. CoS does have some merits, as do all the rest of the religions and orgs out there.

I wanted to tell you how much I like the new decor you've instituted here at your newslog. Strange, for the past two weeks, or so, I've 'felt' like adding that 'other side' too! Now others are doing it...
6 Dec 2004 @ 17:27 by : I wanted ,..
get an idea of how often people come across my page. I noticed a lot of times my page is found because of my less than perfect spelling, lol. Alot to be said for targeted searches, it could be giving me a cross section of how many people on a given day spell like me, lol. It's nice to know that people are finding my stuff, I don't have to speculate if people saw my page based on the comments. I think having it set on syndication can be a 2 edged sword, makes me double check the copywrite stuff more closely before I post something as well as me having my personal facts strait if I comment. I mean considering I don't accually have a clue to what the hell I'm doing, lol.

I am glad that SOMETHING is moving in the right direction within the System, here in the US!....Obviously SOMEBODY put their foot down and said " NO more! enough's enough"! That is the only language the BULLY understands!

that something is being done to stop this insanity against our children. We know its mostly a nutrition problem and hope the schools realize it and get back the good hot meals instead of burgers,pizzas,soda and fries.
