Pharmaceutical Drugs often Forced on Children

If you disagree with your doctor regarding the medical treatment of your children, they can be taken away from you, put in a foster home, and you can be arrested for endangering the health and welfare of your child. There are many people jailed every year, put there for disagreeing with medical doctors and their policies. In order to break free from the clutches of organized medical crime, pharmaceutical drug cartels and the monstrous insurance companies, we must all work to reform the unconstitutional laws that monopolize health care.

Forced Drugging and Vaccination of Children

Psyhchiatry betraying and drugging children for profit In the US judges can constitutionally order controversial drugs to be given to a child over the opposition of his parents. Parents are medicating their children for fear of having them hauled away by Child Protective Services. In the UK Parents of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) will face jail under proposals in the new Mental Health Bill if they refuse to drug their children, a psychiatrist has warned.

Some US Courts may force Parents to Medicate Children - Some public schools are accusing parents of child abuse when they balk at giving their kids drugs such as Ritalin, and as judges begin to agree, some parents are medicating their children for fear of having them hauled away by authorities. There is a growing debate about diagnosing and medicating children with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The Drugging of Our Children and Decline of American Education

Psyhchiatry betraying and drugging children for profitIt is estimated that in the United States between 4 million and 8 million children are on Ritalin, the drug being used to change the behavior of children afflicted with a so-called ''disease'' called Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit H...yperactive Disorder ADHD. We already know that the long-term use of Ritalin can be fatal.

What parents are not being told by psychiatrists who prescribe the drug and the school nurses who give it to the kids is that taking Ritalin is like playing Russian roulette, simply because nobody can be sure what the side-effects will be. Why would anyone subject a child to a drug with so many possible harmful side effects simply to ''treat'' an attention problem?

How about creating classrooms with more order and fewer distractions. This week's guest, Samuel L. Blumenfeld, has published ten books on education in America, and he has spent much of his career investigating the decline in American literacy, the reasons for the high rate of learning disabilities in American children, the reasons why so many children are labeled ADD, and why the school system refuses to use intensive phonics in reading instruction.

Some public schools are accusing parents of child abuse when they balk at giving their kids drugs such as Ritalin, (or AZT) and as judges begin to agree, some parents are medicating their children for fear of having them hauled away.

"There is a war raging over the control of our children. The cry of outrage is spreading across this nation, as increasing numbers of children are wrongfully ripped from their loving parent's arms and secreted away by the unscrupulous agents of the State".

"Take the Pills, or We'll Take Your Kids!"

by David Crowe

Jane Doe in Montreal refuses to give toxic, lifelong medication to her two healthy sons, and loses custody of them. Another woman in Montreal hears this and decides to have an abortion.

A woman in Maine has a daughter die on this medication, and finds that the debilitating symptoms she and her son were also experiencing rapidly disappear after stopping. The State takes her to court, but she wins her case.

Do you know the side effects of psychiatric A couple in Oregon are less fortunate. They are "legally" forced to medicate their infant and the mother forbidden to nurse him! A woman in British Columbia is harassed by social workers who threaten to force her to medicate her two children, and then hastily leaves the province.

A couple in London refuse to test their baby and flee from England after losing their case, fearing that forced medication will follow forced testing.

All these people have one thing in common--both they and their children are HIV-positive. They all reject the need for medication for their condition, and for their HIV-positive children. In fact, they question whether the HIV test indicates an illness at all.

Long Term Danger of ADHD drug prescriptions

Psyhchiatry betraying and drugging children for profit  For decades, the majority of American doctors, mental health professionals, the media, and the general public have yielded to the disseminations of Harvard psychiatrist Joseph Biedeman who successfully evangelized for more children -- and younger children -- to be medicated with powerful psychiatric drugs. The blowback from ADHD drugs is reported in the current July 2009 Scientific American Mind article "Do ADHD Drugs Take a Toll on the Brain?" a comprehensive report of the long-term dangers of ADHD drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, and Vyvanse. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated in 2005 that 9% of boys and 4% of girls in the U.S. were taking ADHD stimulant medications; and according to a 2007 study, ADHD-drug prescriptions rose by almost 12 percent a year between 2000 and 2005.

Direct Link between Violence and Antidepressant Drugs

Ritalin: Toxic Psychiatry Julian Whitaker, M.D., believes there is a direct link between the violent shootings and the increased and indiscriminate use of popular antidepressant drugs. Dr. Whitaker points out that many of the gun-related massacres that have made the headlines over the past decade have a common thread: they were perpetrated by people taking Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil, or a related drug. A documented side effect of these drugs -- known clinically as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) -- is akathisia, or physical and mental agitation. Dr. Whitaker says "akathisia is to violence what a match is to gasoline. And this condition has been reported in a significant number of Prozac users." Moreover, the Food and Drug Administration has received over 40,000 reports detailing adverse effects related to Prozac.

Illinois Shooter was Treated with Psych Medications Prior to Shooting Rampage It comes as no surprise to anyone who's been following school shootings all the way back to the Columbine High massacre in Colorado: Every young, male shooter that has gone on a killing spree in the United States also has a history of treatment with psychotropic drugs -- typically SSRI antidepressants. These shootings have three things in common: 1) The shooters are young males. 2) The shooters exhibit a mind-numbed disconnect with reality. 3) The shooters have a history of taking psychiatric medications.

101 Reasons to Avoid Ritalin Like the Plague

This book captures the bigger picture of all that is sacrificed with the pivotal decision to put a child on Ritalin or medications. There are so many physical and psychological side-effects that never get mentioned to the parent who is seeking help or being pressured by the school to do something about their child's behavior or poor performance at school. This book fights for the parent to have full disclosure of the truth. Parents are never told: "Oh by the way, once in a while a child dies simply by taking their prescribed medication, or by the way, children on stimulant medications have twice the future rate of drug abuse, or by the way, 1/3 of all children on these medications develop symptoms of obsessive compulsive behavior within the first year. Most doctors don't tell parents these things because they simply don't know. Most doctors get the majority of their information about these medications from the same pharmaceutical companies that have a tremendous vested interest in selling more and more medications each year. Most doctors can't tell parents the truth about the psychological side effects because they have no idea that simply giving children these drugs makes it near impossible for the child to deeply believe in themselves and their own power and resourcefulness but rather the child comes to be reliant on the hoped-for power of the medication.

Warning on Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitor

On Monday, March 22, 2004, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health advisory putting doctors on notice and to be vigilant for signs of suicidality or worsening depression with the use of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant drugs use. Patients, families and other caregivers are also warned. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights, an international psychiatric watchdog group, says the warning does not go far enough-the potential for antidepressants to cause suicidal and self-injurious behavior has been established-the drugs should not be prescribed to children at all.

Drugging Children to Keep Them Quiet
Dr. Mercola M.D.

video graphic This stunning news report finds that children, even toddlers as young as 2, are being given powerful psychotropic drugs in order to manage their behavior. Are these children being drugged because it is cheaper and easier than providing real care -- and because the practice is very lucrative for the pharmaceutical companies?

Drugged to Death - Our Kids and Our Troops

The rise of drug-induced acts of violence and suicide isn’t limited to our schools. In January 2009 it was reported that more of our military died of suicide than of combat deaths. Why is that? Could it be because our military are getting pumped full of psychiatric drugs? What Time Magazine referred to as “America’s Medicated Army?”

psychiatric drug side effects Well if we are “medicating” our troops with antidepressants and anti-psychotics, drugs documented to cause suicidal reactions, let’s put 2 and 2 together and state the obvious—these drugs are minimally a contributing factor. Many people don’t realize that psychiatry’s love affair with the military dates back more than 90 years; During World War I the biggest problem the German military had was desertions—people leaving the front lines of the War. So the Germans turned to psychiatrists who came up with a solution: Electroshock. Psychiatrists theorized that if the shock soldiers experienced due to the brutalities of war made them desert the front lines, then another kind of shock—electroshock—could get them to be good little soldiers and willingly return to combat. Maybe because electroshock wiped out their memory, or maybe because soldiers chose to face the front lines rather than have another 450 volts of current tear through their brain, it worked. Psychiatry had come up with a winning strategy for the military to deal with reluctant soldiers and since that time the love affair between the two entities has never waned.

Forced Drugging of Children with Cancer

In memory of our son, Alexander Horwin

On August 10, 1998 at age two, our son Alexander Horwin was diagnosed with the most common pediatric brain tumor, medulloblastoma. After Alexander endured two brain surgeries my husband and I located the best non-toxic therapy that had proven successful in treating brain cancer. However, on September 21, 1998, the FDA denied Alexander access to this potentially life-saving treatment. The oncologists told us that without their "state-of-the-art" chemotherapy, the cancer would soon return. We knew nothing of the history, efficacy and actual danger of chemotherapy but instinctively knew it was a poor choice for therapy. Alexander completed his third month of chemotherapy in December 1998 and died on January 31, 1999. He was just two and a half years old.

The "state-of-the-art" chemo protocol that the oncologists had administered to our son had proven its ineffectiveness in pediatric brain tumors many years before. In fact, in 1994, the exact same chemo drugs Alexander received in 1998 had been administered to children the same age with the same brain tumor (medulloblastoma) as Alexander. This experiment proved so unsuccessful that tumors spread within five months and the oncologists terminated the protocol. It was incredible to us to discover that chemotherapy that had already proven so ineffective that it required termination was being presented to parents as "state of the art" years later.

We were never informed about the failure of this therapy. We also discovered that we weren't the only parents being purposefully misinformed. Today, parents are still being misled and children with brain cancer are still getting these same toxic drugs that have proven their ineffectiveness in the past. But even if you are informed that orthodox therapy does not work you still may not have a choice. When we hesitated to bring Alexander in for chemo the oncologists were already gearing up to take him from us by court order.

She is now on trial, under a gag order, since she had gone to the press. When she was arrested, she was put in maximum security, solitary confinement, in the Orange County, CA jail. They claim that everything about. her says anti-Establishment, so she was told, as she was considered a threat in starting a riot.

Pharmaceutical Terrorism and Mandatory Vaccination
Dr Daniel H Duffy Sr.

The very first words of the Nuremberg Principles issued following the Second World War and designed to outlaw Nazi medical experiments for all time were: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential." Failure to stem the present tide of invasive compulsory medical procedures result in terrible consequences downstream as these forces grow more powerful and more oppressive. We will eventually experience total loss of our freedom to determine ours and our family’s own destiny, not only in health matters but in all forms of living. Political power breeds more power – the system is out of control and must be brought back under control. Controversial mandatory medicine, especially mandatory vaccines must be stopped. This socially malignant situation is under the control of the educated, ruling classes, particularly that part of the scientific community (NIH, CDC, FDA, AMA etc.) exerting influence on government policy. Mandatory vaccination is the most repugnant idea ever put forth by organized medicine. It gives the government power to invade our most private space, our bodies. This is the most private domain of the citizen, their own body! Mandatory vaccination puts one in mind of the eugenics of Nazi Germany. The demand to yield to MANDATORY injection of a foreign substance into a human body under circumstances that highly intelligent specialists in all fields of scientific endeavor consider to be, at the very minimum, highly controversial, cannot AND WILL NOT be tolerated.

Courts Order Kid To Do Chemotherapy

(August 29) - A 12-year-old boy remains in hiding with his mother while authorities in Utah battle to have him returned to undergo court-ordered chemotherapy to treat what they say is deadly bone cancer. Daren and Barbara Jensen fled Utah with their son, Parker, on Aug. 8, after the state ordered that the cancer-stricken boy be placed in state custody so that he can receive chemotherapy. The story began three months ago, when Parker was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a deadly form of bone cancer. Doctors at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City said Parker needs chemotherapy, and that he has only a 5 percent chance of survival without it. A Salt Lake City court agreed, and ordered the parents to have the boy undergo the treatment. But the boy's family disagreed. They question the accuracy of the test that led to his cancer diagnosis, said Parker's uncle, Tracy Jensen.
