If, as the saying goes, “a society is measured by how it treats its weakest members,” then the high profile cases of psychiatric strong-arming, drugging and abduction of 11-year old, Ariana Godboldo and 15-year old Justina Pelletier, paints a frightening picture of how far this nation has fallen.
The Godboldo and Pelletier families are recent examples of the state-sponsored neglect, abuse and assault that America’s children are subjected to when power is delegated to the psychiatric community, whose medical and scientific expertise begins, and ends, at subjective diagnosis.
Both chilling, real-life scenarios call into question why, on a state and federal level, these obvious violations of basic civil and human rights have failed to attract legislative and judicial investigation and disciplinary, if not criminal, action.
As a signatory of the 1984 United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, one naturally would assume the United States is committed to insuring basic human rights are protected, especially those of its children.
However, based on a 2013 United Nations special report on Torture and Other Cruel or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, there can be no mistake that the ill-treatment these families received at the hands of child protective agencies, and directed by psychiatrists, is a shocking commentary on the failure of governmental bodies to protect the weakest among us.

When Prescribing Psychiatric Drugs Becomes Reckless Endangerment
When psychiatrists or doctors prescribe dangerous, potentially life-threatening psychiatric drugs to children without the parent or legal guardian’s consent, they should be charged with reckless endangerment and/or child endangerment because these drugs are documented to cause side effects including, but not limited to, suicide, mania, heart problems, stroke, diabetes, death and sudden death.
The fact that Child Protective Services (CPS) or other government funded agencies can charge parents with “Medical Neglect” for refusing to give their child a dangerous and potentially life-threatening psychiatric drug is an oxymoron. There is no “medical” or scientific test in existence to prove any child has a “mental disorder” or “mental illness,” so how is it medical neglect to refuse to drug a child, where there is no evidence of “medical abnormality”? Diagnosis is completely and utterly subjective—based solely on a checklist of behaviors. The only medical risk to the child is when they are prescribed psychiatric drugs.

Help Us Educate Parents With the Truth About Psychiatric Drugs
• 198,000 children under the age of six are taking ADHD drugs which are in the same class as cocaine, morphine and opium.
• In the U.S. alone, 10 million children are currently being prescribed psychiatric drugs—more than 1 million of them are under the age of five.
Parents are quite simply not being given accurate information about psychiatric labels (mental disorders) or the drugs being prescribed to “treat” their children.
