New Mother's mandated Mental health Test just passed in the US
Roll on 1984...I would never pass the sorts of tests the seat shining boffins who have nothing better to do but to sticky beak into our private lives would devise. Baring emotional or physical abuse no one has the right to take our children away from us...but in the US now, they can unless you pass one of their tests...read the links and if this pisses you off be loud about it...this sort of poison will flow out to the rest of the world if allowed to become the way to go in the US.
HR20-New Mother's Mandated Mental Health Test-JUST PASSED HOUSE!
antilib Yesterday at 2:17 am
A sweeping government policy for all new births in the United States has just passed the House of Representatives and is now headed to the Senate. The Mother's Act, if passed, will mandate that all new mothers be screened by means of a list of subjective questions that will determine if each mother is mentally fit to take their newborn home from the hospital. Just imagine that after your child is born, you are told that you can't take them home since a multiple choice questionnaire wasn't answered correctly. Just imagine being told that the only way you can take your child home is if you or your spouse goes into treatment or on anti-depressants which we know causes psychosis, delusions, and even homocidal thoughts. It just doesn't make sense. Unfortunately, this bill is on a fast track--No public debate, no public disclosure of the broad impact on our society and that is why we need you to act now!The Mother's Act violates our Constitutional right to privacy and your right to liberty and it is just outright dangerous. That is why we need you to help stop this. We urgently need you to call and email each Senator on the HELP Committee and tell them you STRONGLY OPPOSE the MOTHER'S ACT and that you are OUTRAGED that there was NO public debate or disclosure on the impact this would have on our society as a whole.Send a letter by going here:
Please call the following Senators on the HELP Committee and tell them that you want the Mother's Act to die in committee.Lisa Murkowski, R: 202-224-6665, AKJohn McCain, R: 202-224-2235, AZChristopher Dodd, D: 202-224-2823, CTJohnny Isakson, R: 202-224-3643, GATom Harkin, D: 202-224-3254, IAPat Roberts, R: 202-224-4774, KSEdward Kennedy D: 202-224-4543, MABarbara Mikulski D: 202-224-4654, MDRichard Burr, R: 202-224-3154, NCKay Hagan, D: 202-224-6342, NCJudd Gregg, R: 202-224-3324, NHJeff Bingaman, D: 202-224-5521, NMSherrod Brown, D 202-224-2315, OHTom Coburn, R 202-224-5754, OKJeff Merkley, D 202-224-3753, ORBob Casey, D 202-224-6324, PAJack Reed, D 202-224-4642, RILamar Alexander R 202-224-4944, TNOrrin Hatch R 202-224-5251, UTBernard Sanders, I: 202-224-5141, VTPatty Murray, D, 202-224-2621, WAMichael Enzi, R, 202-224-3424, WYThank you so much for caring enough to call and take action!
