STOP DRUGGING OUR CHILDREN
,z
 
 


 
 
 FACT:  Psychiatric drugging of  preschool and elementary children to "fit in" our schools, our communities, and our homes has risen 35 fold in the last 20 years!

"As of 2008, upwards of a million children in the United States—in many cases preschoolers—are on "mood-stabilizers" for bipolar disorder alone, even though the condition remains unrecognized in the rest of the world.

250 children a day added to social security disability roles
Is the natural wonder, curiosity, and desire to learn really broken in millions of  our preschool and school age children; and the antidote is drugs as strong and addictive as cocaine???(250 children a day are added to the social security disability roles.)

Dear Reader, 








the following is a quote from  Dr. Peter Breggin, the author of the book"The War Against Children of Color." 
(Words in parenthesis are mine, Cindi Fisher)                     
A PERSONAL CONCLUSION
by Dr. Peter Breggin

I am white and Jewish. It feels like a special honor to work in close association with African Americans on behalf of human liberty and mutual respect. 

As I look back on the fight against the first and second violence initiatives,(these initiatives are actual government documents that focused on targeting African American children) it strikes me that the victories would not have been won without the vigorous participation of African Americans.

Often the dominant white society seems indifferent to the various psychiatric abuses, whether they affected blacks or the entire society. 

For example, I had little success in opposing the return of lobotomy until its effects on the blacks aroused their concerns. Right now the drugging of children in general escalates in America, with millions of school-boys and girls on Ritalin and other psychiatric medications. Yet it is only among blacks that I have found any concerted ethical or spiritual outrage over the medical diagnosing and drugging of America's children. It is ironic indeed that the black community remains a bulwark of ethics, social conscience, and empathy for children within the very society that so oppresses it.

Targeting Our Children:
           
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A FORM of SOCIAL CONTROL!
 
MOTHERS!
This is what we are up against!
(This is a quote from Dr. Peter Breggin's Website...)
The widespread diagnosing of children is a subtle form of social control that suppresses children rather than providing them with what they need to fulfill their basic needs in the home, school and family (and I, Cindi, would add, the community/village).
MOTHERS: A WARNING FROM DR. BREGGIN
"... the medical and scientific authorities, and the weight of the universities and government, wholly support this rampant abuse of children. From the systematic abuse of women, children and minorities throughout the ages to the institution of slavery and the Holocaust, those in authority have condoned and benefited from these abuses. Authority at the top of society always justifies these widespread abuses, otherwise the abuses would never get started, nor would they persist.
Reject the authorities. Rely on common sense, sound ethics and real science. Allow yourself to become empathic toward these abused children. Then become angry, energized, motivated and engaged. Educate yourself. My books and those of many others will introduce you to a new world of science, education and philosophy about childhood and children. Find your own way to protest and to make a difference. Join us at empathictherapy.com in our efforts to protect our nation's children from psychiatric abuse and to offer them genuine love, inspiration, service and education."
For more information about social control and youngsters see the Children's section under Special Topics and Children's section under Scientific Papers, as well as several of Dr. Breggin's books, especially
Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry
(1998).  Dr. Breggin's blogs often address current children's issues.

"The FDA has put the interests of drug companies and the psychiatric research establishment ahead of those of America's children. It is time for the public and concerned professionals to take a stand against unethical pharmacological research on children." Dr. Peter Breggin

PFIZER FINED FOUND GUILTY OF CRIMINAL CHARGES!
"False claims, kickbacks (to doctors)
felony crimes and civil fraud... it seems that the truth about pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer is finally starting to emerge."
