If you think it is wrong to drug and electroshock pregnant women and new mums then you may want to join our protest on Thursday 29th November from 8.30am to 10.30am and also 3.20pm to 5.20pm at the Hallam Conference Centre, 44 Hallam Street, London, W1W 6JJ, UK.

 

Speak Out Against Psychiatry is staging a protest, called Save the Babies: Occupy the Royal College of Psychiatrists on November 29th to protest their programme promoting the psychiatric drugging and electroshocking of pregnant women and new mothers.

 

Program here http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/pdf/NEW%20Peri%202012%20Programme.pdf

 

I hope you will come and help get as many other people there as possible. I will appreciate it if you go to our facebook page and see the event Save the Babies: Occupy the Royal College of Psychiatrists and say you are coming if you can, or ‘maybe’ if you can't, and help get people there.

 

Thanks for your support.

Good lord! This must be exceedingly rare, no? Or the UK is completely batshti insane. Forced electro-shock? Do we do that here? To pregnant woman??

 

I'm shocked by this.

"Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothing but affection for all those who sailed with me.

Everybody's moving, if they ain't already there
Everybody's got to move somewhere
Stick with me baby, stick with me anyhow
Things should start to get interesting right about now."

If you think it is wrong to drug and electroshock pregnant women ....

 

I'm also shocked at the casual nature of the poster, Cheryl.

 

"Do you think it's wrong..." followed by a crazy proposition that 90+% of people would think is wrong.

 

Do you think it's wrong to skin left-handed 5 year olds and string them upside down from trees,...

....

In the US one can openly talk about an impulse to go kill a bunch of strangers in a Batman movie or shoot a bunch of strangers from a university tower and no-one will impede you until after the fact.

....

Cheryl,

How many pregnant woman are electro-shocked against their will each month in the UK?

I should hope there would be ethical issues!

 

By the way, see Oyebode, 2012 Psychotropics in pregnancy: safety and other considerations. http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/2995-oyebode-2012-psychotropics-in-pregnancy-safety-and-other-considerations/
