ACTION ALERT: Mental Health screening for all Children
« on: Nov 09, 2004, 10:49:53 AM »
ACTION ALERT

November 8, 2004


High-priced lobbyists in Washington are tough to beat; especially the ones
who represent the pharmaceutical industry.  But we can't let them win this
time.

On September 7th, we told you about the New Freedom Commission on Mental
Health's plan (a presidential commission) to subject every child in America
to mandatory mental-health screening; a plan that will result in the forced
drugging of children.  Two days later, Congressman Ron Paul tried to stop
this insidious plan by offering an amendment to the Labor, HHS, and
Education Appropriations Act for FY 2005.  The amendment received 95 "yes"
votes, but it failed to pass.

However, Congressman Paul and several of his colleagues are not giving up.
Neither are we.  They have drafted a letter to Congressman Ralph Regula,
chairman of the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services,
Education Appropriations, asking for his help.  The letter will be sent to
Mr. Regula this Friday.  As of today, 11 House members have signed the
letter which is a very good start.  But the high-priced lobbyists
representing the drug companies are already working to oppose our effort, so
we need to get additional support for our side.

Read the letter and then urge your U.S. representative to sign it.  If you
think mandatory mental-health screening can't happen in the good ol' USofA,
think again.  In 1995, while George W. Bush was governor, the state of Texas
launched the Texas Medication Algorithm Project.  The state of Illinois
launched a similar program in 2003.  Backers of those two state programs now
want to go nationwide!  We must stop them!!
