No longer is involuntary drugging only a concern to those locked away in an institution. "Laws quietly passed in 36 US states now allow the government to court order you to take psychiatric drugs, even though you're law abiding and living at home, in your own neighborhood. These court orders are known as "Involuntary Outpatient Commitment" (IOC). Typically, you'd be required to report to your community mental health center every few weeks for a "depot injection" of a "neuroleptic drug" such as Prolixin or Haldol in your butt. These drugs are time released [in a base of oil and injected intramuscularly], so that the super-powerful impact lasts weeks until your next injection. The court orders can be routinely re-approved, so these injections can go on for years."
Disclaimer: Many of
the statements that follow in this report (Namely the effect that neuroleptic
drugs have on the duration of life span and sense of well being.) have not been
investigated or evaluated by the FDA (so they claim) nor do they care to. The
FDA does not even require animal studies to determine how these drugs affect the
duration of life span which is shocking considering that the FDA is supposed to
be charged with protecting the American people. The conclusions in this report
are based on available facts, for which a positive assertion can be made by
putting the information together so that the true nature of these drugs can be
established. This information is what the FDA, psychiatrists, and the
pharmaceutical companies do NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW. This information is both
shocking and scandalous and reveals a probable eugenics conspiracy so be warned.
The common people that are affected by this are not supposed to be smart enough
to understand and figure it out, but I have.
The purpose of this report is to prove conclusively that neuroleptic drugs (Also know as antipsychotics or antipsychotic drugs, tranquilizers, psychotropics or psychotrophics, or psychotropic drugs or psychotrophic drugs) shorten life span, destroy sexual function and fertility, take away sense of well being which can precipitate suicide and or violent behavior etc. This will be established in this discussion through a rudimentary explanation of some facets of biochemistry and by quoting reputable sources. Also to empower the people who may be affected by this with knowledge that they can use to defend their rights and help overturn these laws as unconstitutional and as basic human rights violations. Also to help educate people who have friends and or family members who are affected by this and to provide understandable information to the general public who are being denied the facts.
These drugs are not just given to those labeled as "schizophrenic" or said to be "psychotic" or have "psychosis" or have "schizophrenia". These drugs are often given to people with depression, manic depression or bipolar disorder, mania, Alzheimer’s patients or those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, people with brain damage or head injuries, retarded children and adults, many children with Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD or ADHD and children and teenagers who simply have a hot temper (which ironically the drugs will make worse) as well as many other things. If you are unsure whether a certain drug is a neuroleptic or not then here is a list of many names for neuroleptic drugs.
List of neuroleptic drug names: Chlorpromazine, (Brand names are as follows; Chlor-PZ, Klorazine, Promachlor, Promapar, Sonazine, Thorazine, Chlorprom, Chlor-Promanyl and Largactil) Fluphenazine, (Brand names are as follows; Permitil, Prolixin, Modecate, Moditen) Mesoridazine Besylate, (Brand name is Serentil) Perphenazine, (Brand names are as follows; Trilafon, Etrafon, Triavil, Phenazine and Etrafon) Prochlorperazine, (Brand names are as follows; Compazine and Stemetil) Promazine Hydrocloride, (Brand name Sparine) Thioridazine, (Brand names are Mellaril, Novoridazine and Thioril) Trifuoperazine, (Brand names are as follows; Stelazine, Clinazine, Novaflurazine, Pentazine, Terfluzine and Triflurin) Clozapine, (Brand named Clozaril, in Germany called Leponex) Haloperadol, (Brand name Haldol) Loxapine, (Brand name Loxitane) Pimozide (Brand name is Orap) Thiothixene, (Brand name Navane) Risperidone (Brand name Risperdal), Zyprexa (Brand name is Olanzapine), Sertindole, Ziprasidone (Brand name Geodon or Geodone was planned to be named Zeldox), Amperozide, Remoxipride, Melperone, Zotepine, Isofloxythepin, Setoperone, Perospirone, Quetiapine (Brand name Seroquel)Methotrimeprazine (Brand name Nozinan or Nosinan, called Levomepromazin in Germany), Zuclopenthixol (Brand name Clopixol), Zuclopenthixol Acetate (Brand name Clopixol Acuphase), Amisulpride (Brand name Solian). Also the antidepressant drug Sertraline (Brand name Zoloft) is molecularly indistinguishable from that of the neuroleptics and has even been tried as a neuroleptic. This list contains generic names and many brand names used in the USA and Canada. This list is by no means comprehensive.
The compulsory administration of neuroleptic drugs by order of the state is not only a violation of one's right to liberty but also the right to life and the pursuit of happiness. The right to life because neuroleptics shorten life span and the precipitous onset of degenerative disease that these drugs induce. The right to the pursuit of happiness because neuroleptics take away sense of well being. The right to liberty because of not being able to make ones own decision regarding the administration of these drugs and the right to freedom of religious worship when the administration of these drugs precludes their use when it violates one's religious values and convictions. For legitimate religious grounds to refuse these drugs see Footnote C below.
The compulsory administration of neuroleptics because of state order is a violation to one's right to life because the drugs not only shorten life span but also make the quality of one's life inferior due to the precipitous onset of degenerative disease that these drugs induce. This is not a statement unsupported by fact. Let me now explain.
Dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine all belong to the class of neurotransmitters called catecholamines. Catecholamines are synthesized from the amino acids L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine. This is the complete step by step synthesis of these substances: L-Phenylalanine --> L-Tyrosine -- > L-DOPA --> Dopamine --> Norepinephrine --> Epinephrine. L-Tyrosine is also converted to the thyroid hormone thyroxine by the thyroid and dopamine is also converted to the skin pigment melanin.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is synthesized from the amino acid L-Tryptophan. Melatonin the sleep-inducing hormone produced by the pineal gland is synthesized from Serotonin. Here is the complete step by step synthesis of these substances. L-Tryptophan --> 5-Hydroxy - L-Tryptophan (5-HTP) --> 5-Hydroxy - L-Tryptomine (Serotonin) --> Melatonin (O-methyl - N - Acetylserotonin).
The main function of neuroleptics is blockage of catecholamines in the brain. They have greatest affinity for dopamine receptors and to a lesser extent norepinephrine and epinephrine. (A future report of mine will prove that these drugs destroy dopaminergic receptors. See Footnote B for a simplified explanation of this.) Neuroleptics block dopamine receptors in the brain with generally greatest affinity for D1 and D2 receptors. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a receptor is the "keyhole" which dopamine like a key, plugs into for neuronal communication. There are many other neurotransmitters, all with their respective "key holes" or receptors. But the analogy of a "keyhole" is insufficient because there are different receptors that fit their corresponding neurotransmitter. Different sides of the neurotransmitters will fit into the different types of receptors. It is like the fact that a puzzle piece has different sides with different shapes. It's the different sides of the neurotransmitter that fit into their corresponding receptors. Since these neurotransmitter molecules are three dimensional in shape, the different sides of its shape fit the different receptors.
When a dopaminergic neuron fires, it releases dopamine into the synapse from vesicles within the presynaptic dendrite. The synapse is a gap or space between dendrites, which are branches off the neuron and a presynaptic dendrite is the dendrite that releases the neurotransmitter. Think of this gap as if it were the gap of a spark plug in an automobile except it is not electricity that fires within this gap it is a chemical messenger; a neurotransmitter. This dopamine then binds with dopamine receptors on postsynaptic dendrites, which are the dendrites on the other end of the gap that are the recipient of the neurotransmitter that branch off another neuron. The neurotransmitter then floats within the synapse and through quantum mechanics is drawn to the postsynaptic receptors on the end of the other dendrite where they bind activating ion pumps. Ion pumps are tubular molecular machines made up of amino acid building blocks, which is a protein. Ion pumps are also called channels. These receptors surrounding the circumference of the ion pump cause this ion pump to dilate when activated by the stimulating neurotransmitter dopamine which allows electrolytes to pass through the cell membrane causing an electrical shift in polarity which causes the neuron to fire an electrical charge down its axon. When the electrical charge reaches the other end it causes dopamine to be released from that neuron’s presynaptic dendrites and the process continues in a cascade.
The neurotransmitter Serotonin is an inhibiting neurotransmitter that mediates the expression of the stimulating neurotransmitter Dopamine. There are third dendrites from neurons of the serotoninergic system utilizing this inhibiting neurotransmitter serotonin that act as variable switches at different points within the dopaminergic system. If serotonin is being released into a synapse from a third dendrite where dopamine had just been released, this inhibiting neurotransmitter then acts as a chemical straight jacket by binding to serotoninergic receptors on these same ion pumps which mediates the degree to which dopamine will cause this neuron to fire its electrical charge. This is the simplified relationship dopamine has with serotonin. There are many other neurotransmitters both stimulatory and inhibitory that act in many complex ways that have yet to be understood by science up until this point in time. (For instance the neurotransmitter GABA (4-AminoButyric Acid) is another inhibiting neurotransmitter that has a mediating effect on the stimulating neurotransmitter Glutamate and also has a mediating affect on the stimulating neurotransmitter dopamine in some dopaminergic pathways. The seizure drug Valproic acid or Valproate (brand name Depakote or Depakane) is often prescribed for "mania" or "manic psychosis" and Bi Polar disorder also known as manic depression. Depakote causes an increase in GABA in the brain by inhibiting the two enzymes that are involved in breaking down this neurotransmitter.) Many newer neuroleptic drugs bind with both dopamine and serotoninergic receptors. These serotoninergic receptors are activated continuously by these drugs while at the same time blocking normal serotoninergic function, greatly inhibiting dopaminergic expression.
Neuroleptic drugs block dopamine receptors in all areas of the brain for the types of receptors they have affinity for. Antagonism of a type of receptor is not neurological pathway specific and antagonizes all receptors of the type it has affinity for without regard for the actual function of the neurological pathways they affect. Most dopaminergic function takes place within the limbic system of the brain. (See the article in the magazine called "American Scientist" March-April 1996 Volume 84 called "Reward Deficiency Syndrome" on pages 134 and 135 for an explanation of the limbic system and how it relates to the "reward cascade" which I will discuss later in this report. Click Here for the Article Online
The limbic system of the brain contains a structure called the hypothalamus. This area of the brain called the hypothalamus is responsible for the regulation of pituitary hormones by the release of controlling hormones. The pituitary is a small gland located at the base of the brain just under the hypothalamus. The pituitary in turn regulates all other bodily hormones. See the book "Facts and Comparisons" III W. Port Plaza, Suite 300 St. Louis MO. USA 63146-3098 (telephone 314-216-2100 or 1-800-223-0554). (Note this book is currently used by Rite Aid Pharmacies in the USA as a reference aid and it is a loose bound updatable book. The updatable section called "Antipsychotic Agents" is (c) 1990) This book states under "antipsychotic agents" that "Antipsychotics block postsynaptic dopamine receptors in the basal ganglia, hypothalamus, limbic system, brain stem and medulla... The phenothiazines appear to act at both D1 and D2 receptors, whereas haloperidol appears to act primarily at D2 receptors." ("D" here stands for dopamine and each different receptor is numbered.) Also see the book "Drug Info for the Health Care Professional 17th edition volume I 1997" by Authority of the United States Pharmacopeial Convention, Inc. (c) 1997 by The United States Pharmacopeial Convention Inc. printed by Rand McNally, Taunton, Massachusetts. Distributed by USPC 12601 Twinbrook Parkway, Rockville, Maryland USA. This book states on page 2321 in the section on phenothiazines under the subheading "Mechanism of action/Effect" that neuroleptics "block postsynaptic mesolimbic dopaminergic receptors in the brain... and depress the release of hypothalamic and hypophyseal hormones." Hypophyseal hormones are pituitary hormones.
One hormone the hypothalamus produces is TRH (thyrotropin releasing hormone or thyrotrophin releasing hormone). This hormone when released by the hypothalamus stimulates the release of the pituitary hormone TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone also called thyroidea stimulating hormone, thyreotropic hormone, threotrophin hormone, TTH, thyrotropin, thyrotrophin). TSH in turn when released by the pituitary stimulates the production or release of the thyroid hormone thyroxine which is abbreviated T4 (four because this is the number of iodine atoms the hormone contains). Thyroxine is the hormone that regulates bodily metabolism. Lowering metabolism by lowering the body's capacity to produce thyroxine shortens life span. See the book "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones 2nd Edition" by Roman J. Kutsky, Ph.D. published by Van Nostrand Reinhold Company New York (c)1973. On page 369 in this book under "Essentially for Life" it states "Deficiency" of thyroxine "in adult shortens life span". Also on page 367 of this book in paragraph three it states that the capacity to produce this hormone is associated with aging. And on page 371 under "Deficiency Symptoms" where it states among other things that deficiency of thyroxine causes "Decreased BMR" (BMR is the abbreviation of Basal Metabolic Rate), "Increase in blood lipid and cholesterol" (lipid is fat). Also see the book "Fats that Heal Fats that Kill" (c) 1986,1993 by Udo Erasmus Ph.D. and published by Alive Books, Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby BC Canada V5J 5B9. On page 37 of this book at the top of the page it states that "Decreased metabolic rate is also involved in aging, arthritic diseases, cancer, and cardiovascular disorders, and is another general symptom of degenerative diseases." Published by Alive Books, 7436 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby BC Canada V5J 5B9. (c) 1986,1993.
Exposure to cold temperatures will stimulate the production of TRH by means of dopaminergic neurons within the hypothalamus which stimulates the production of TSH by the pituitary which in turn stimulates the production of T4 by the thyroid which raises metabolism and body temperature to keep the body warm and to regulate the burning of fat and carbohydrates as fuel. The increased body temperature from a good metabolism stimulates the production of the anabolic hormone testosterone and anabolism keeps the body rejuvenated and fights aging. As I have shown interfering with this process lowers metabolism and shortens life span. Lowered metabolism causes weight gain and according to the American Medical Association's own statistics the more overweight a person is the more likely that person will suffer a premature death. See the chapter called "Drugs Used in Obesity" starting on page 2439 of the book "Drug Evaluations Annual 1995" by the American Medical Association. Neuroleptic drugs suppress the production of T4 thereby lowering metabolism by suppressing the release of the hypothalamic hormone TRH. Metabolism is the main mechanism that promotes thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is the production of body heat from the burning of fatty acids and glucose when body heat is lost due to exposure to cold temperatures and simply the continuous normal loss of body heat. It is T4 in the end that is responsible for helping to generate body heat that is lost and to keep the bodies metabolism going which includes both catabolism the burning of fat and glucose as fuel and anabolism the building up of the body through the maintenance and manufacture of replacement biochemical substances and structure which fights aging. Metabolism is both catabolic and anabolic. Although T4 technically is a catabolic hormone catabolism and anabolism are interconnected in a continues cycle so catabolism through T4 promotes anabolism. A healthy well nourished body will not burn protein as fuel.
Because of the neuroleptics or antipsychotics actions on the hypothalamus suppressing the release of TRH the pituitary doesn't produce as much TSH and in turn the Thyroid doesn't produce as much T4. See the book again "Facts and Comparisons". This book states under "Antipsychotic Agents" that neuroleptics "depress various components of the reticular activating system which is involved in the control of basal metabolic rate and body temperature, wakefulness, vasomotor tone, emesis, and hormonal balance." Also see the book "Cecil Textbook of Medicine 19th edition" edited by James B. Wyngaarden, MD, Lloyd H. Smith, Jr., MD and J. Claude Bennett, MD published by W.B. Saunders Company, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Inc. Philadelphia London, Toronto, Montreal, Sydney, Tokyo. This book states on page 1569 under "The Pathogenesis of Fever" under the subheading "Initiation of Fever" that "...thermoregulation originate[s] in the hypothalamus" and "... neuroleptic drugs are capable of disrupting the hypothalamic response and may interfere with the development of fever. Among these, [the neuroleptic] phenothiazines are the best known for their poikilothermic effect. These agents are not specifically active in febrile states; rather, they act to disable thermoregulatory mechanisms at all times following their administration." Also see the book called "AHFS 96 Drug Information" published by American Hospital Formulary Service and "published by the authority of the board of directors of the American Hospital Formulary Service. This book states on page 1617 at the bottom right of the page; "Phenothiazines have a poikilothermic effect, interfering with temperature regulation in the hypothalamus: depending on environmental conditions, hypothermia or hyperthermia can occur." Hypothermia is under heating of the body and hyperthermia is overheating of the body. Many people forced to take neuroleptics have died of heatstroke. See footnote A at the end of this thesis.
Again see the book "Drug Info for the Health Care Professional 17th edition volume I 1997" on page 2321 in the section on phenothiazines under the subheading "Mechanism of action/Effect" that neuroleptics "block postsynaptic mesolimbic dopaminergic receptors in the brain... and depress the release of hypothalamic and hypophyseal hormones." These effects are the result of blockage or destruction of dopamine receptors within the hypothalamus. Suppression of this hormonal system is one of the main mechanisms in which neuroleptics shorten life span.
Many of the quotes are obtained from statements concerning the class of neuroleptics called phenothiazines but since all neuroleptics block or destroy dopamine receptors they all produce the same undesirable symptoms. For instance this quote from the book "Drug Info for the Health Care Professional" page 1564 under the heading of "haloperidol" a neuroleptic in a class by its self; "[The] Pharmacological effects of haloperidol are similar to the effects of... phenothiazines". All neuroleptics block or destroy dopamine receptors so therefore all suppress hypothalamic hormone secretion. Now again see the book "Fats that Heal Fats that Kill" on page 37 at the top of the page where it states that "Decreased metabolic rate is also involved in aging, arthritic diseases, cancer, and cardiovascular disorders, and is another general symptom of degenerative disease." On page 191 of the same book at the top of the page it states; "The brightness of the fire is the rate at which our body produces energy our metabolic rate. For continued good health, it is vital that the fire of life burns brightly." Decreased metabolic rate not only leads to obesity but also to degenerative disease. Not only do neuroleptic drugs shorten life span but also make life inferior due to inducing the onset of degenerative disease.
See the book "Facts and Comparisons" again under "antipsychotic agents" and note that one of the neuroleptic drugs is sarcastically named "thioridazine" (Brand names are Mellaril, Novoridazine and Thioril) denoting the fact that these drugs suppress the production of the thyroid hormone thyroxine or T4. "Thio" being a grammatical construct from the beginning of the word thyroxine and also the beginning of the word iodine, which is the mineral that this hormone contains, followed by the word rid in the middle of this construct denoting the fact that these drugs get rid of or suppress the release of this hormone. In my opinion this reveals the utter contempt the designers of these drugs have for those labeled "mentally ill". Also the question must be asked, why would a drug be named after a life span shortening "side effect" unless that was its sole intended purpose? This also reveals that the designers of these drugs knew the biological effects of these drugs even before they were pushed on the public. Also notice that one of the neuroleptics is called "mesoridazine besylate" (Brand name is Serentil). Meso means middle which is where the limbic system is located in the brain. Since neuroleptic drugs shorten life span, the compulsory administration of these drugs by court order of the state is a violation of one's right to life.
Again see the book "Drug Info for the Health Care Professional 17th edition volume I 1997" on page 2321 which states that neuroleptics "block postsynaptic mesolimbic dopaminergic receptors in the brain ... [and] ... depress the release of hypothalamic and hypophyseal hormones." Again hypophyseal hormones are hormones produced by the pituitary gland. Because hypothalamic hormones control the release of pituitary hormones this is the reason pituitary hormones are suppressed. Most hypothalamic hormones are releasing hormones. One hypothalamic hormone which is an inhibiting hormone is prolactin release-inhibiting hormone (abbreviated PRIH also called PIF, RIH, prolactin inhibiting factor or prolactin inhibiting hormone, PIH, prolactostatin).
Since neuroleptic drugs suppress the release of this inhibiting hormone then the pituitary is free to secrete abnormal amounts of this female hormone that regulates lactation into the blood stream of both males and females. Most other bodily hormones are suppressed by neuroleptics except for prolactin for this reason. Since phenothiazines were the first neuroleptics used starting with Thorazine and the fact that phenothiazines have been used on more people then all other neuroleptics combined, the affect on hormone production caused by these drugs has been well established. All the other neuroleptics have been designed after what has been learned from the phenothiazines.
The level of hypothalamic hormone production is in direct correlation with dopaminergic activity or the ability of the dopaminergic system to function normally without interference. For this reason all neuroleptics that block or destroy dopamine receptors or utilize the serotoninergic system or both will suppress the production of all hypothalamic hormones which in turn suppresses pituitary hormone production and in turn all other bodily hormones.
Serotonin is an inhibiting neurotransmitter that mediates the function of the dopaminergic system. Excess serotonin stimulation has the effect of suppressing the dopaminergic system. One neuroleptic called Molindone (brand names Lidone and Moban) utilizes this function by mimicking serotonin. Also this is why antidepressant drugs that raise levels of serotonin cause sexual dysfunction. One "antidepressant" drug Sertraline (Brand name Zoloft) is molecularly indistinguishable from that of the neuroleptics. In fact Zoloft has even been tried as a neuroleptic. Perhaps it's labeled as an antidepressant just for people who insist that their "problems are just depression". A man I talked to on the telephone at the FDA told me that Zoloft was so powerful at destroying sexual function that if just one pill is taken by someone with premature ejaculation it will slow him down. But don't take this man's word for it. Even the PDR says Zoloft causes sexual dysfunction. Percentage rates of impotence listed in the PDR for various drugs is misleading as only people who were sexually active and not embarrassed to speak about it would even report impotence or sexual dysfunction as a side effect. Every male I have questioned who has been on these drugs has confided in me that these drugs have caused them some type of major sexual problem.
See the book "Biochemistry A Case-Oriented Approach fifth edition" by the Department of Biochemistry, The University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa. Montgomery Rex Ph.D., Thomas Conway Ph.D. and Arthur A. Spector MD (c) 1990 The C.V. Mosby Company. This book states on page 761 that prolactin secretion is increased by "serotonin". See the book "Facts and Comparisons" again under "antipsychotic agents" under "Carcinogenicity / prolactin secretion:" which states "Neuroleptic drugs elevate prolactin levels which persist during chronic administration." This is a reference to all neuroleptics, not just phenothiazines. Also see the book again called "Biochemistry A Case-Oriented Approach fifth edition" on page 761 in the seventh paragraph where it states that "Some medications, acting as dopamine antagonist, increase prolactin secretion. Although many drugs of this type exist, the most common are the antipsychotic phenothiazines, such as thorazine." On page 778 of this same book it states in the first paragraph; "Dopamine is an active compound believed to inhibit prolactin secretion".
Since neuroleptics block or destroy dopamine receptors there is no dopaminergic activity to inhibit prolactin secretion. Going back to page 761 of this same book it sates in the fifth paragraph under "Disorders associated with prolactin" that "Prolactin secretion has a dramatic effect in blocking the pituitary gonadotrophs, and elevated prolactin levels are associated with sexual dysfunction. Hyperprolactinemia before puberty blocks sexual maturation and the pubertal growth spurt. After puberty, hyperprolactinemia is associated with loss of libido and impotence in males and amenorrhea in females." The gonads are testicles in men and ovaries in women and amenorrea is the abnormal suspension or suppression of menstruation. Hyperprolactinemia is the abnormal excessive production of the female hormone prolactin.
One pituitary gonadotroph is luteinizing hormone (abbreviated LH and also called luteotrophin or luteotropin, interstitial cell-stimulating hormone, ICSH, Prolan B, gonadotrophin II or gonadotropin II, metakentrin, corpus luteum-ripening hormone). See the book again "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" on page 323 under "Deficiency Diseases, Disorders" where it states that deficiency of this hormone causes "Hypogonadism". (Hypogonadism is the inability of the gonads to perform their function of remaining fertile and producing sex hormones.) Also on this page it states that this hormone is necessary for "reproduction". Now reference page 327 of this book under "Mode of Action" where it states that this hormone "increases synthesis of steroid hormones (sex hormones) ... estradiol (estrogen) ... [and] testosterone". Also here it also states that this hormone "stimulates rupture of follicles in ovary". (This is so the ova or egg can be released from the ovary.)
The other pituitary gonadotroph is follicle stimulating hormone (abbreviated FSH, and also called Follotropin or Follotrophin, Thylakentrin, Prolan A, gonadotrophin I or gonadotrophin I, gametogenic hormone, follicle ripening hormone, gametokinetic hormone). See the book again "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" on page 330 where it states that this hormone is required for "reproduction". Also see page 332 under "Deficiency Symptoms" where it states that deficiency of this hormone causes "Decreased gametogenic function and development (nonfunctional)". (This is just a fancy way of saying that deficiency of this hormone will cause any sperm or ova produced to be genetically incapable of producing offspring or rendering any sperm or ova (eggs) produced "nonfunctional") Also on this page it states that deficiency of this hormone also causes "Atrophy of the gonads" (atrophy means to waste away), "No maturation of ova, sperm", "Obesity", "Decreased libido, potency, hair growth" and "decreased blood levels of estrogen". (Estrogen is the female sex hormone.) Pituitary gonadotrophs stimulate the production of sex hormones by the gonads.
The hypothalamic hormone, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone regulates these pituitary gonadotrophs. (Abbreviated LRH also called LRF, LH-releasing factor or LH-releasing hormone, (LH-RH/FSH-RH), Gonadotropin releasing hormone (abbreviated Gon-RH or GnRH)) This hormone is suppressed by neuroleptics so here is another mechanism by which sex hormone production is inhibited besides the inhibition due to excessive prolactin secretion.
Going further on to the sex hormones which neuroleptic drugs inhibit we will learn more about what these drugs do to the body. Estradiol also called estrogen (some other names are female hormone, dihydrotheelin, dihydrofollicular hormone, dihydrofolliculin) "is essential for reproduction and female characteristics. Its chief functions are to maintain and regulate female sex characteristics and behavior. Its chief importance is as the major female sex hormone with its command of female sex development and maintenance of female body characteristics and behavior. ...Deficiency conditions include menopause and delayed maturation." As stated in the book "Hand Book of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" on page 415. (See footnote D) On page 419 of the book "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" it states that deficiency of estrogen will cause "Delayed maturation", "Female accessory and reproductive organs recess" (recess means not to function), "Decreased female behavior pattern", "Senescence" (means Growing old, aging), and "Menopause". Here is further proof that neuroleptic drugs program the body to self-destruct, grow old and die and proof that these drugs prevent reproduction.
Another female hormone that is stimulated by the hypothalamic hormone, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone through the pituitary hormone luteinizing hormone is progesterone. So therefore neuroleptics also inhibit the production of this hormone as well. On page 423 of the book "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" it states that progesterone "is indirectly essential for life, since it is a precursor to aldosterone and cortisol, which is essential. Its chief functions are to synergize the actions of estradiol (estrogen) in the female organs, especially during pregnancy. Its importance stems from the fact that it is a precursor to all the steroid hormones and that estradiol (estrogen) requires its presence for many of its actions. ...Deficiency conditions [include]... dysfunctional uterine bleeding." On page 427 under "Deficiency Symptoms" this book states that deficiency of progesterone causes "Termination of pregnancy", "Decreased production of steroids", Decreased ovulation", "Loss of normal cyclic changes" and "Decreased development for implantation and gestation". This is shocking because neuroleptics are routinely given to pregnant women who commonly have miscarriages and then the prescribing psychiatrists will deny that the drugs were the cause!
Now onto the male sex hormone testosterone; Testosterone's "chief functions are: development and maintenance of the male organs, male sex characteristics, and behavior, as well as stimulation of growth (anabolic), and metabolism of muscles, liver; and kidney. The chief importance of testosterone lies in its major command of male sex development, body characteristics, and behavior. Deficiencies include eunuchoidism, and male hypogonadism. ...Testosterone is formed mainly in the testes (interstitial cells) but also in small amounts in the adrenal cortex and the ovary[s]." (From page 431 of the book "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones") On page 433 of this book it states that testosterone is "essential for reproduction in all (male) vertebrates". On page 435 of this book it states that deficiency of testosterone will cause, "Involution of accessory organs (prostate, seminal vesicles)", (involution is the progressive decline or degeneration of normal physiological functioning occurring as a result of the aging process and or decrease in size of an organ.) "Decreased male behavior patterns and libido", "Decreased secondary sex traits", "Poor muscle development and function". Neuroleptic drugs will destroy sexual function in men and produce sterility and will cause musculature to waste away since this is another hormone that neuroleptic drugs suppress the production of. See the web address below that states that risperidone (which is a neuroleptic in a class by itself) will cause "testicular atrophy" because of its "antidopaminergic activity". All neuroleptics though will cause testicular atrophy due to hormonal suppression. See "Atypical Antipsychotics: A Practical Review" at: Risperidone and do a search on the page for "testicular atrophy". You must first have a user name and password before accessing this article.

I have received this
argument from someone who presented himself as a medical student. He said that
dopamine and Prolactin Release-Inhibiting Hormone is one and the same. He also
said "of course a drug acting as a dopamine antagonist is going to affect this
hormone". I had to set this man straight. I told him this: "That is not true.
Prolactin Release Inhibiting-Hormone (also known as PRIH, Prolactostatin, RIH,
Prolactin Inhibiting Factor or hormone, PIF, PIH, PRIF), which is produced by
the hypothalamus is a chain of amino acids similar in structure to Luteinizing
Hormone-Releasing Hormone. This can be found in the book "The Handbook of
Vitamins Minerals and Hormones" by Roman J. Kutsky, Ph.D. on page 303, which is
a very good biochemistry fact book written in outline form. At the time of
publication of this book the exact structure of Prolactin Release-Inhibiting
Hormone had not been determined but they knew enough about it that they knew it
was similar in structure to Luteinizing Hormone-Releasing Hormone which is a
chain of amino acids called a peptide which is a small protein. Dopamine is a
monoamine derived from the amino acids L-Tyrosine and or L-Phenylalanine. It has
been called "Prolactin Inhibiting Factor" but should never be called "hormone"
since it is a neurotransmitter. Apparently there is much confusion in the
medical field regarding this. I also told this man this; "I can understand your
confusion because it has been known for years that Dopamine affected Prolactin,
but by the mechanisms pointed out in this report. Dopamine affects the release
of all hypothalamic hormones not just Prolactin Release Inhibiting Hormone or
Prolactostatin. Here is the exact amino acid sequence of PRIH; Asp - Ala - Glu -
Asn - Leu - Ile - Asp - Ser - Phe - Gln - Glu - Ile -Val - Lys - Glu - Val - Gly
- Gln - Leu - Ala - Glu - Thr - Gln - Arg - Phe - Glu - Cys - Thr - Thr - His -
Gln - Pro - Arg - Ser - Pro - Leu - Arg - Asp - Leu - Lys - Gly - Ala - Leu -
Glu - Ser - Leu - Ile - Glu - Glu - Glu - Thr - Gly - Gln - Lys - Lys - Ile". I
also told him this: "Dopamine is not a hormone but a neurotransmitter. No doubt
there are many independent neurological pathways that utilize this stimulating
neurotransmitter in the control of the release of these hypothalamic hormones.
That is why the release of these hormones operate independently of each other
and that dopamine antagonism inhibits all hypothalamic hormone production
because antagonism is not neurological pathway specific and never will be. Which
is why the drug chemical approach to treating "mental illness" is fundamentally
flawed and will never be the answer.
Go to this web-site where the hypothalamic peptide prolactostatin or prolactin release-inhibiting hormone is available for sale for research purposes. http://www.penlabs.com/biopro/biopeptides3_32.html It is called Prolactin Release Inhibiting Factor or (PIF) on this Web-site. Go here to this German language web-site where it is identified as a hypothalamic hormone. http://www-stud.uni-essen.de/~st0184/Infos/eseldiv.htm. The name Prolactostatin is used on this web-site. There are three hypothalamic "statins" and they are all inhibiting peptides. The idea that PRIH is dopamine is outmoded and erroneous. Dopamine is the controlling neurotransmitter involved in the release of PRIH. There have been studies in the past that seemed to suggest that dopamine acts directly on the pituitary to inhibit prolactin, but such studies are flawed in that infusing dopamine into the area of the pituitary to observe the affect on Prolactin release could very well be effecting real PRIH release from the hypothalamus simply because of the close proximity of the pituitary to the hypothalamus. The pituitary is after all at the base of the hypothalamus and this dopamine infusion could easily be crossing over into the hypothalamus and stimulating the dopaminergic system and therefore releasing real PRIH which in turn would inhibit prolactin thus giving the appearance that dopamine was the sole causative factor acting directly on the pituitary.
As has already been established neuroleptic drugs inhibit the production of the hormone progesterone and it is a precursor to the hormone aldosterone, (Precursor means the body uses one substance to synthesis or to produce another substance. In simpler words the body makes the hormone aldosterone from the hormone progesterone) so therefore aldosterone is also inhibited by neuroleptic drugs. See the book "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" again on page 406 where many deficiency symptoms are cited which include "Muscular weakness" and "Stress intolerance". See the book again on page 401 where it states at the bottom of the page that aldosterone is "One of the most essential of all hormones; absence can be fatal in [a] short time period". Now look at the book "Facts and Comparisons" again under "antipsychotic agents" under "adverse reactions" where it states that after the administration of neuroleptics that "Sudden Death has occasionally been reported." Could this perhaps at least be partly due to the inhibition of aldosterone secretion by these neuroleptic drugs? Aldosterone secretion is partly governed by the pituitary hormone ACTH (the abbreviation for adrenocorticotropic hormone or adrenocorticotrophic hormone and also called adrenocorticotropin or adrenocorticotrophin, corticotropic hormone or corticotrophin hormone) which is in turn governed by release of the hypothalamic hormone corticotropin-releasing hormone or corticotrophin-releasing hormone. (Abbreviated CRH and also called CRF, cortical-releasing factor or cortical-releasing hormone, adrenocorticotropin-releasing factor or adrenocorticotrophin-releasing factor, corticotropin-releasing factor or corticotrophin-releasing factor.) See the book "Handbook of Vitamins Minerals and Hormones" again on page 342 at the bottom of the page where it states that ACTH is "one of the most essential hormones-Absence causes notable shortening of normal life span." Now see page 344 of this same book where it states that deficiency of ACTH causes "Decreased weight of adrenal (atrophy)", "Decreased mobilization of free fatty acids" (so fat can be burned as fuel). It also states here that deficiency of ACTH causes "Decreased steroids in blood, urine (17-hydroxy and 17-keto)" (ketones are produced as a byproduct of the burning of fat as fuel. Since deficiency of ACTH decreases ketones it means that fat is not being utilized as fuel which will lead to weight gain), "Fasting hypoglycemia" and "Increased insulin sensitivity" Which explains why it is common for people on these neuroleptic drugs to be glucose intolerant. Since neuroleptic drugs inhibit the production of all these hormones described above, they also cause all the problems associated with deficiency of these hormones. Here is unquestionable proof that neuroleptic drugs not only shorten life span but also destroy sexual function and fertility or the ability to procreate offspring or have children.
Aldosterone is not the only hormone that is controlled by the ACTH, CRH hormonal cascade. ACTH and CRH also control the release of the adrenal hormone cortisol (Also called hydrocortisone, Compound F, 17-hydroxycorticosterone. Substance M, glucocorticoid) (also cortisol is converted into cortisone in the body). On page 407 of the book "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" it states that the "chief functions" of cortisol "are to maintain stress reactions, capillary permeability, release of other hormones, liver anabolism, and extrahepatic catabolism. Its chief importance is maintenance of stress reactions". ("liver anabolism" is the rejuvenation of the liver and liver synthesis of substances that keep the body rejuvenated and "extrahepatic catabolism" is the burning of fat as fuel in all parts of the body except for the liver.) Also on this page it states that "Factors inhibiting the release" of cortisol "are: high glucocorticoids, low ACTH, and pituitary hormones." On page 408 of this book it states at the bottom of the page that "Absence" of cortisol "causes shortening of life span due to inability to respond to stress situations." On page 411 of this book it states that deficiency of cortisol causes decreases in "Kidney function, leading to death", "Liver glycogen, gluconeogenesis", "Intestinal absorption, blood sugar" and "Stress response-Ultimately death". Also on page 411 it states that deficiency of cortisol will cause increases in "Fat anabolism, hemoconcentration" (Fat anabolism is the depositing of new fat tissue), "Muscular weakness" and others. Here is further proof that neuroleptic drugs shorten life span.
Now on to another hormone which neuroleptic drugs suppress the release of which is the pituitary hormone growth hormone. (Abbreviated GH and also called somatotropin or somatotrophin, phyone, anterior pituitary growth hormone, adenohypophyseal growth hormone, somatotrophic hormone, STH) You may think that this is not a problem because most of the people these drugs are given to are already adults or in their teens. (I have been recently discovering that a growing number of children with ADD or similar "conduct disorder" are being given these drugs.) But growth hormone has other functions in adults. See the book again called "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" on page 307 where it states that "Because growth hormone controls the nitrogen balance of an organism, it is thought to be involved in the aging process." On page 309 of this same book it states that absence of growth hormone will result in a "decrease in normal life span." On page 311 it states that deficiency will result in "Increased fat deposition." The hypothalamic hormone growth hormone-releasing hormone (abbreviated GRH and also called GHRH, GRF, somatotropin-releasing factor or somatotrophin-releasing factor or somatotropin-releasing hormone or somatotrophin-releasing hormone, growth hormone releasing-releasing factor or growth hormone releasing-releasing hormone, SRF, GHRF) stimulates the secretion of growth hormone by the pituitary. As we have already learned neuroleptics suppress the release of both hypothalamic and pituitary hormones. Here is further evidence that neuroleptic drugs shorten life span. Therefore the compulsory administration of neuroleptic drugs by court order of the state is a violation of one's right to life.
Neuroleptic drugs also possess "adrenergic blocking effects". Again reference the book "Facts and Comparisons" under the section "Antipsychotic agents". The book states on the first page of this section "In addition, the drugs exert anticholinergic and alpha-adrenergic blocking effects." Also see the book "Drug Info for the Health Care Professional" again on page 2321 under the section on phenothiazines where it states under the subheading "Mechanism of action/effect" that "Phenothiazines also produce an alpha-adrenergic blocking effect." (Phenothiazines being just one of the classes of neuroleptic drugs all of which block dopamine receptors and cause the same effects due to blockage of these receptors.) This is so because of the chemical similarity of dopamine to the adrenergic neurotransmitters, all of which belong to a family of neurotransmitters called catecholamines. The adrenergic neurotransmitters are adrenaline and noradrenaline. (Also called epinephrine and norepinephrine) These two neurotransmitters are synthesized or created from dopamine; thus the similarity in their molecular structure. Both these neurotransmitters double as hormones. Since neuroleptics block or destroy alpha-adrenergic postsynaptic receptors this would simulate a deficiency.
See the book again "Handbook of Vitamins, Minerals and Hormones" this time under "Epinephrine". This book states on page 445 concerning epinephrine that "It is not essential for life, but it is indirectly essential, since it is involved in stress responses via cortisol, which is essential". (We have already learned the importance of cortisol.) On this same page it states that one of the functions of epinephrine or adrenaline is increasing metabolic rate in time of need to respond to stress or emergency. Also see page 447 under the subheading "Essentiality for Life" where it states that deficiency of this hormone and neurotransmitter will cause "possible shortening of life span due to decreased response to emergencies." So if threatened by a life threatening situation neuroleptic drugs make one physically ill equipped to face the threat. Also on page 448 under "Deficiency Symptoms", "Not fatal, but organism cannot respond to emergency, hard work, temperature extreme, emotional disturbance". Not fatal of course unless one fails to respond adequately to an emergency or dies of heatstroke. Again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" under "Antipsychotic Agents" under "Adverse Reactions" where it states that "Heatstroke/Hyperpyrexia induced by neuroleptics has occurred. They may act in several ways including disrupting the hypothalamic thermoregulator center, alpha-adrenergic blockage and autonomic mechanisms." (Hyperpyrexia is overheating of the body.) And of course not being able to respond to emotional disturbance or stress blocking the stress response making one incapable of dealing with stress thus precipitating agitation. This is destructive to the body in it's own right so here is another way these neuroleptic drugs shorten life span. Also appetite is controlled in part by noradrenaline within the hypothalamus. Lowered metabolism and the compulsion to consume more food due to increased appetite from the blockage of noradrenaline receptors within the hypothalamus equals weight gain. It can not be avoided. See the book again called "Facts and Comparisons" under "antipsychotic agents" under "Adverse Reactions" under "Miscellaneous" which states that neuroleptics will cause "increases in appetite and weight".
Neuroleptics also have "anticholinergic blocking effects". Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter. The brain produces an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase to break down excess acetylcholine to prevent it from accumulating to abnormal levels. This break down of acetylcholine by this enzyme comprises the anticholinergic system. Neuroleptic drugs have "anticholinergic blocking effects" meaning they cause the accumulation of acetylcholine to abnormal levels. Nerve gas's method of causing death is by its anticholinergic blocking activity. Also insecticide kills insects by this same method causing an abnormal build up of acetylcholine in the brain and nervous system of the insect.
See the book again called "Facts and Comparisons" under "antipsychotic agents" at the bottom of the first page in this section where it states that "In addition, the drugs exert anticholinergic and alpha-adrenergic blocking effects." Now see the book called "Brainscapes" by Richard M. Restak, MD published by NY Herperion (c) 1995. On page 57 of this book it states; "As we have discussed earlier, after a neurotransmitter and it's receptor have reacted, the process must be brought to a halt, which is accomplished either by the destruction of the neurotransmitter and recycling of it's constituents, or by a so-called reuptake system, whereby the neurotransmitter is recaptured and stored once again within the vesicle. In the case of acetylcholine, the process involves a breakdown brought about by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which cleaves the neurotransmitter back to its original chemical building blocks. This process can be interfered with by compounds responsible for some of the worst horrors of twentieth-century warfare. Nerve gases, such as the deadly Sarin released into the subway system in Tokyo in March 1995, form irreversible bonds with anticholinesterase [acetylcholinesterase], thus inhibiting the enzymes' ability to break down acetylcholine in the synapse." Then on page 121 of this same book it states; "In the section on neurotransmitters we mentioned another class of neurotoxins, inhibitors of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which breaks down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Many pesticides are designed to attack the nervous system of insects by altering the breakdown of acetylcholine. Not surprisingly, these agents also act on our brains and nervous systems to produce symptoms like weakness, difficulty in breathing, visual disturbances, and in some cases explosive violence. With low rates of exposure the problems are more subtle, a prevailing sense of tension, disturbed sleep, restlessness, chronic anxiety, and nervousness when standing in lines."
All of these symptoms can be observed in people on neuroleptics. For instance "visual disturbances", see the book again "Facts and Comparisons" under "Ocular" in Adverse Reactions which states that neuroleptics will cause "Glaucoma; photophobia; blurred vision; miosis; mydriasis; ptosis; star-shaped lenticular opacities; epithelial keratopathies; pigmentary retinopathy. Eye lesions may regress after drug withdrawal." Also as Richard Restak MD reports insecticide exposure will cause "restlessness" and or "nervousness when standing in lines." This has been given a name "Akathisia", see the book again "Facts and Comparisons" under "Extrapyramidal" under "akathisia" which states that neuroleptics cause "a condition of constant motor restlessness [called akathisia] and may include feelings of muscle quivering, an inability to sit still and an urge to constantly move about." Akathisia comes from the Greek word meaning "can't sit still," and refers to significant physical and mental agitation. Akathisia is to violence what a match is to gasoline. Also he reports that insecticide exposure will cause "difficulty breathing", again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" in the same section under "Respiratory" which states that neuroleptics cause "Laryngospasm; bronchospasm; increased depth of respiration; dyspnea." (Dyspnea is difficulty breathing or shortness of breath.) Also he states that insecticide exposure will cause "weakness", again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" in the same section under "Other CNS effects:" that neuroleptic drugs will cause "Cerebral edema, headache, weakness, tremor, staggering gait; twitching; tension; jitteriness; akinesia; ataxia; fatigue; slurring [of speech]; abnormal cerebrospinal fluid proteins;" etc. Also Richard Restak MD reports that insecticide exposure will cause "disturbed sleep". Again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" in the same section under "Other CNS effects" where it states that these drugs cause "insomnia" and under "Adverse behavioral effects:" where it states that neuroleptic drugs cause "nocturnal confusion" and "bizarre dreams". Richard Restak MD also reports that insecticide exposure will cause "a prevailing sense of tension", again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" under "Other CNS effects" where it states that neuroleptics cause "tension". Also he reports that insecticide exposure will cause "anxiety". Now see the book called "The Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs Revised Edition" (c) 1980 by James W. Long MD and published by Harper & Row on page 344 under haloperadol (a neuroleptic drug) that this drug can cause "anxiety". Also Richard Restak MD reports in his book that insecticide exposure causes "in some cases, explosive violence." Now see the book "Facts and Comparisons" in the same section under "Adverse behavioral effects:" where it states that neuroleptics can cause "hyperactivity" and "agitation". (See the commentary coming up concerning a Star Trek Voyager episode entitled "The Chute" where the story centered on this very effect.)
Of course nerve gas and insecticide are poisons and neuroleptics have blatantly poisonous properties in that part of their function is the same as that of nerve gas and insecticide in causing an abnormal build up of acetylcholine. In fact the very molecular base of one class of neuroleptics called phenothiazines is used as an insecticide! See the book again entitled "AHFS 96 Drug Information American Hospital Formulary Service" in the second paragraph in the right column, which states that "Phenothiazine [a class of neuroleptics] is still used as an anthelmintic in veterinary medicine and as an insecticide." The very insecticides that Richard Restak MD is referring to in his book "Brainscapes" are being given to those labeled mentally ill as a claimed "beneficial medical treatment"! Here is further evidence that neuroleptics shorten life span. Again remember that all neuroleptics interfere with the breakdown of acetylcholine so don't assume that because the drug isn't a phenothiazine that it will not have these effects. Other neuroleptics may even be worse at interfering with the break down of acetylcholine then phenothiazine.
Personally every time I have been on neuroleptics I have been extremely agitated sometimes breaking things. One time I even assaulted my father because of these drugs. These drugs can cause extreme feelings of rage. This is precipitated by the horrible torturous feelings that these drugs induce. This well-known effect of excess acetylcholine was even the theme for a Star Trek Voyager episode called "The Chute" (this is an American science fiction television show) in which two of the members of the crew were abducted and placed aboard a space station prison. In order to keep the prison population down the prisoners where unknowingly exposed to a chemical that caused the build up of acetylcholine by interfering with its breakdown. This caused the prisoners to be violent and enraged often killing each other. After the crew members were rescued the "holographic" doctor on Voyager revealed that it was interference with the breakdown of acetylcholine that was causing the violence and that the prison's operators must be using the chemical to keep the prison’s population down. (Could this be why many prisoners in the USA are forced or coerced into taking neuroleptic drugs?) Based on this fact of neuroleptics, not only is compulsory administration of neuroleptic drugs by court order of the state a violation of the right to life but also the pursuit of happiness because these drugs take away one's sense of well being causing "agitation". Ironically these drugs are often prescribed under the pretense that they will prevent violence when in reality they can actually promote it.
This leads to another problem with neuroleptic drugs and how they take away sense of well being. Within the limbic system of the brain is an electrochemical cascade called the "reward system". This system is responsible for giving a person their sense of well being. Disruption of this electrochemical neuronal cascade results in ones sense of well being, being supplanted with negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, anger and generally a very negative outlook on things. The end result of the reward system's neuronal cascade is stimulation of dopamine D2 receptors within the nucleus accumbens and the hippocampus, which are located within the limbic system of the brain.
See a problem yet? Remember neuroleptic drugs as you have already learned block or destroy dopamine D2 receptors preventing their stimulation by the neurotransmitter dopamine. Again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" under "Antipsychotic Agents" where it states on the first page of this section; "Antipsychotics block postsynaptic dopamine receptors in the basal ganglia, hypothalamus, limbic system, brain stem and medulla. ...The phenothiazines appear to act at both D1 and D2 receptors, whereas haloperadol appears to act primarily at D2 receptors."
Neuroleptics do indeed take away one's sense of well being by utilizing more then one mechanism. This is very self destructive to the body and will result in a premature death if one doesn't commit suicide first. Ironically these drugs are prescribed to people to prevent suicide when in reality they actually promote it. Perhaps the designers of these drugs want to give the person that extra amount to push them over the edge and actually do it. Personally two times I was on these drugs for extended periods I attempted suicide because of them.
So here is further proof that the compulsory administration of neuroleptic drugs because of court order of the state is not only a violation of one's right to life but also one's right to the pursuit of happiness. This is so since the administration of these drugs take away sense of well being making it very difficult to feel happiness.
Read the article entitled "Reward Deficiency Syndrome" as published in "American Scientist" magazine March-April 1996 for a detailed and in depth discussion of this brain function called the "reward cascade". Click Here for the Article Online.
Neuroleptic drugs block dopamine receptors in all areas of the brain for the types of receptors they have affinity for. Antagonism of a type of receptor is not neurological pathway specific and antagonizes all receptors of the type it has affinity for without regard for the actual function of the neurological pathways they affect. Most dopaminergic function takes place within the limbic system of the brain. (See the article in the magazine called "American Scientist" March-April 1996 Volume 84 called "Reward Deficiency Syndrome" on pages 134 and 135 for an explanation of the limbic system and how it relates to the "reward cascade" which I will discuss later in this report. )
article states on page 135 under figure 4, "If the activity of the dopamine D2
receptor is deficient, the activity of neurons in the nucleus accumbens and the
hippocampus is decreased, and the individual experiences unpleasant emotions or
cravings for substances that can provide temporary relief by releasing
dopamine." On page 132 of this article it states that disruption of the
stimulation of D2 receptors as part of the "reward cascade" will "supplant an
individual's feeling of well being with anxiety, anger or a craving for a
substance that can alleviate the negative emotions." In this magazine article it
explains that "reward deficiency syndrome" is the cause of behavioral disorders
such as attention deficit disorder (with and without hyperactivity), personality
disorder, conduct disorder, antisocial personality, aggressive behavior, autism
(autism is the abnormal introversion and egocentricity, acceptance of fantasy
rather then reality).
After reading this article I came to understand the source of many of my own problems and why neuroleptics were exasperating them. And also why I had an insatiable craving for alcohol whenever I was on neuroleptics that even persisted for a long time after they were discontinued since the damage caused by neuroleptics to the dopaminergic system is long term. Or I would consume caffeinated cola flavored soda - craving the caffeine - until my stomach would become bloated and I would throw up. Again see the book "Facts and Comparisons" under "antipsychotic agents" under "Adverse Reactions" under "Adverse behavioral effects:" where it states that neuroleptics will cause "...restlessness; hyperactivity; agitation; ... depression; ... paranoid reactions." And again see the book "The Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs Revised Edition" (c) 1980 where it states that haloperadol (a neuroleptic) causes "anxiety". Also as reported in this report, since these neuroleptic drugs cause adrenergic blocking and inhibition of the adrenal hormone cortisol, these drugs reduce capacity to deal with stress both emotionally and physically. So here is irrefutable proof that these drugs not only take away sense of well being but also shorten life span.
The state does NOT have the right under any circumstances to order the compulsory administration of a substance, which shortens life span and takes away one's sense of well being, a substance with poisonous properties like that of nerve gas and insecticide! The constitution of the United States of America guarantees certain inalienable rights, namely the right to liberty (making one’s own decision regarding personal matters), the right to life, and the right to the pursuit of happiness. When the state orders the compulsory administration of neuroleptics EVERY ONE of these inalienable rights is being violated.
Mental health officials will first do their very best to intimidate and coerce a "patient" or "client" into "voluntarily" taking neuroleptics before they will attempt to get a court order that will allow them to involuntarily drug someone. They will use mind games or psychology on a person coming back to them repeatedly telling them such things as "Don’t you want to get better?". Many times when doing this they will invade your personal space. Perhaps in an attempt to provoke you into an act of violence that they will then use as "evidence" that you "need" these drugs. Many times they will tell the person that they will not qualify for social security assistance if they do not take the drugs or that they will remain locked up in an institution if they do not take the drugs. Any call to the Social Security Administration will reveal that it is not required that someone takes neuroleptics in order to receive or continue to receive social security. Perhaps what the psychiatrists are really saying is that they will not support a disability claim if the person doesn't take the drugs. In such case this is blackmail. Don't be tricked by a psychiatrist's attempts to get you to try a new drug that is supposed to be "safer" then the older ones. All neuroleptics block or destroy dopamine receptors even the newer ones. Therefore the newer so called, "safer" neuroleptics will also cause what has been described in this report by the very fact that they also block or destroy dopamine receptors. Risperidone (Brand name Risperdal) and Zyprexa (Brand name is Olanzapine) affect higher reasoning centers and make it almost impossible to form complex thoughts. This is due to its effects on the neurotransmitter Serotonin. If I were on either of these two drugs it would have been impossible for me to do the research and write this report. I speak form experience because I have temporarily taken both Zyprexa and Risperidone. On just two pills of Zyprexa I could not even access my memories of research on these drugs. On Risperidone I had slurred speech, word substitutions, difficulty forming complex thoughts pages of text appeared as blank piece of paper when previously I could rapidly digest the material.
Resist psychiatric drugging. Use the evidence in this report to argue in probate court that the involuntary administration of these drugs is a violation of all your fundamental constitutional rights, most importantly the right to life and the pursuit of happiness. They will not be able to get around these two rights. They take away liberty from the "mentally ill" under the guise that they are supposedly not competent to make their own decisions regarding their own medical care, but they will not be able to get around these other two rights. If possible get your own attorney rather then allowing the court to appoint one for you because it is my experience that these court appointed attorneys are not really motivated to defend you and may even be secretly serving the interest of the mental health officials and the state. If you do not get a favorable decision in the probate court then insist on an appeal and remember to attempt to maintain your determination to follow through with the appeal realizing that these drugs take away your will power and ability to resist domination. Use this knowledge to fight this effect of the drugs. If necessary appeal these constitutional issues all the way to the Supreme Court. Only when we as a people fight and defend our rights will changes be made, not only for our personal protection but also for that of our loved ones and our children and our children's children. It is not just the "mentally ill" that are affected by this. Routinely these drugs are administered to the retarded (including children) and the elderly in nursing homes as well as Alzheimer's patients, people with head injuries or brain damage etc.
It is very clear that the motivation behind the administration of antipsychotics, antipsychotic drugs, neuroleptics, or neuroleptic drugs to the "mentally ill" and others is eugenic in nature. For those who do not know what eugenics is, it is idea that the human race can be improved by preventing "inferior stock" from reproducing and by inducing an early death. The eugenic idea got its start with psychiatrists in the USA. Later Hitler shocked the world with the holocaust of millions of people, basing his program on eugenics practices that were already being carried out in the USA. But the first to be killed in Nazi Germany was the "mentally ill". Before Hitler did the things he did, the forced sterilization of the "mentally ill" in the USA was common practice. But as you are already probably starting to see after reading the evidence centered on neuroleptic drugs, the same eugenics program is being covertly carried out under the guise of a "beneficial medical treatment". In the 1960s, the Eugenics Society of England adopted what they called "Crypto-eugenics", stating in their official reports that they would do eugenics through means and instruments not labeled as eugenics. Abortion and the push of birth control is one of these and as it should be clear from reading this report on the true nature of neuroleptic drugs that it is a eugenics conspiracy also.
After World War II so many psychiatrists immigrated to the USA that some time after the war, one third of all psychiatrists in the USA were former Nazi's.
The founder or "father" of psychiatry in the United States was a Freemason named Benjamin Rush. He was one of the signers of the United States constitution. Psychiatry was founded as a means to take care of critics of Freemasonry or the Masonic Lodge. Also to take care of people who are revealing "National Security Secrets" and also to take care of people who "step on the big guys toes" by challenging their interests or causing them to loose money. Also to take care of "whistle blowers" and to take care of people who are attempting to change Satan's demon inspired "status quo". "Status Quo" means the generally accepted viewpoint which is often wrong. To take care of true Christians who are discovering truths from the Holy Scriptures and revealing them to the people. The Mason or Freemason named Benjamin Rush invented a restraint chair with straps on it that he named "the tranquilizer" which is where this word originated. He also invented the straight jacket. The electric chair today is a modification of Benjamin Rush's invention. The Masonic Lodge is evil to the core.
The Catholic Church is no better because they also run psychiatric wards and cooperate with the government to silence people by "taking care of them". The Catholic Church has a lot of stock in the pharmaceutical industry which includes psychiatric drugs. Psychiatry has become for the Catholic Church their new means of inquisition and their psychiatric wards in their hospitals are their inquisition halls were people are tortured chemically. I was personally drugged with a double dose of Haldol in the hospital named "Mercy Medical Center" in their emergency room in Springfield Ohio and when I cried out that I was a Jehovah's Witness being drugged by a Catholic hospital they shipped me to the State Mental Health facilities at Twin Valley Behavioral Modification in Dayton Ohio instead of putting me in their own facilities there.
A Freemason probate judge by the name of Richard P. Carey sent me by his order to a state mental health facility where I was repeatedly drugged by court order. I told him in court that he was a Freemason and he read an internet site I once had online exposing Freemasonry. It is clear his motives were to attempt to silence me for exposing Freemasonry or the Masonic Lodge. The Masons are very strong in Clark County Ohio. For instance Sheriff Gene A. Kelly of Clark County Ohio is a 32 degree Freemason. I know because he admitted it once to me on the telephone.
Judge Richard P. Carey is a Freemason Nazi. He attempted to silence me but the Almighty Father Yehovah protected me. USA courts have forced drugs on me many times in the past by court order. But the Almighty Father has protected me and I still have my mind intact and have two new sons by his blessings.
Willful unrepentant poisoners can not enter into the Kingdom of Yehovah Elohim (Jehovah God). See http://www.watchtower.org/ for people who can help you rely on the Almighty Father in spirit and truth so you to can receive the protections of the Almighty Father from wolves like Richard P. Carey Freemason.
Once congressman David Hobson (congressman Hobson or congressman Dave Hobson) in Springfield Ohio tried to get me institutionalized because I gave him a copy of this report. That did not work so Sheriff Gene A. Kelly attempted to get my father to institutionalize me. I even got multiple death threats in my E-mail for writing this report and speaking out against Freemasonry on the internet. I want these people to know that I forgive them and pray for them and that they can be forgiven of anything as long as they turn to Yehovah in genuine repentance. See http://www.watchtower.org/

The following excerpt is taken from the public service publication entitled "Psychiatry Destroying Religion in the Name of Salvation" by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights under the chapter entitled "The Devil's Doctors - From the Nazi Holocaust to 'Assisted Suicide'"
"While psychiatry has tried to expunge any connection between itself and the racial genocide of the Nazi Holocaust, the hard facts is that psychiatry spawned "eugenics" almost three decades before the Nazi's took power in 1933. It was psychiatry that turned the Nazis into the mass murders, not vice versa. And it was their ideology which fired Hitler's mania to eradicate religion."
"As early as 1895, German psychiatrist Alfred Ploetz wrote: "Should it turn out that in spite of it the new-born is a weakly and ill-bread child, then a gentle death will be provided for him by the medical board, which decides over the citizenship papers of the society, let's say through a small dose of morphine.... [The parents] will not give themselves over to rebellious feelings for long but will try it fresh and happily a second time, if they are permitted to do so and have a certificate granting them the right to the procedure."" [Dr. Thomas Roder and Volker Kubillus, Manner hinter Hitler (Malters: p Pi-Verlag fur Politik und Gesellschaft, 1994) pp. 65-66]
"Within ten years, Ploetz founded the German Society for Racial Hygiene, joining with another psychiatrist, Ernst Rudin who would later turn sterilization operations into one of the Nazi's most prolific death machines. Declaring racial hygiene a "spiritual movement," Rudin and his associates worked to disseminate their ideas and principles to the public. Despite "quietly and gradually winning over the hearts and minds of our best Germans," they could not gain support at upper government levels. Eventually they found a willing collaborator in Adolf Hitler. "Only through [the Fuhrer] did our dream of over thirty years, that of applying racial hygiene to society, become a reality,"" Rudin said. [Dr. Thomas Ruder, Volker Kubillus and Anthony Burwell, Psychiatrist the Men Behind Hitler (Los Angeles: Freedom Publishing, 1995) p. 94.]
"Hitler was also influenced by two psychiatric books: The Release of the Destruction of Life Devoid of Value (1920) by Hoche and Binding and The Principles of Human Heredity and Racial Hygiene (1921) by Bauer, Fischer and Lentz. Lentz wrote, "I have heard that Hitler had read the second edition of Bauer-Fischer-Lentz during his incarceration in Landsberg. Some parts of it are mirrored in Hitler's phrases. In any case, with great mental energy, he had made the basic ideas of racial hygiene and their importance his own, while most of the academic authorities still look upon these issues rather unappreciatively." [Roder, Kubillus, and Burwell, op. Cit., p. 37.]
"According to Hoche and Binding:
1. The suffering of a sick or wounded person who is about to die can be shortened through the use of a medical drug.
2. The acceleration of the death process is not an act of murder but "in truth a pure act of healing."
3. A doctor should be allowed to employ euthanasia on any unconscious person without legal consequences.
4. There are people who are worthless to society. Primary among these are the inmates of the "idiot institutions," who are "not only worthless, but of absolutely negative value."
5. The incurably dumb who can neither agree to survive or to be killed should be killed. "Their death will not be missed in the least except maybe in the hearts of their mother or guardian.... When we become more advanced, we will probably be saving those poor humans from themselves."" [Ibid., p.41.]
"With Hitler providing the public face and vehicle for implementation, the next few years saw an avalanche of legislation which legitimized psychiatry's demonic plans. On July 4, 1933, the Sterilization Act was enacted, clearing the path for wholesale euthanasia. July 4, 1933 saw the Law for the Prevention of Genetically Diseased Children passed."
"By 1936, the first systematic transfers of the mentally ill from various institutions to the concentration camps began. In 1937, criminals and repeat offenders were relocated to the camps, followed by "vagrants, alcoholics, work dodgers, welfare recipients and even already-sterilized, feeble minded women." That same year, the Third Reich embarked upon a cleansing of the churches and charitable establishments. People were relocated first into state institutions, then ultimately to the death camps."
"The number of sterilizations performed in Germany between 1934 and 1945 is estimated to be as high as 350,000. And while German psychiatric hospitals held 300,000 to 320,000 patients in 1939, only 40,000 were alive in 1946. The rest had met their deaths at the hands of psychiatry. [Ibid., p. 48; Fredric Wertham, M.D., A Sign For Cain: An Exploration of Human Violence (London: Robert Hale Limited, 1966), p. 158.] In 1941, the Hadamar psychiatric institution "celebrated the cremation of the ten thousandth mental patient in a special ceremony. Psychiatrists, nurses, attendants, and secretaries all participated. Everybody received a bottle of beer for the occasion," author Fredric Wertham, M.D. reported." [Wertham, A Sign For Cain..., op. Cit., p. 157.]

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is a non-profit anti-psychiatry organization that works hard to expose psychiatry for what it is. They offer many public service publications free of charge. But I recommend a small donation so they can keep up their very important work. Their address is: Citizens Commission on Human Rights International, 6362 Hollywood Boulevard, Suite B, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Their telephone numbers are 1-800-869-2247 or 213-467-4242. Their web-address is: http://www.cchr.org Although this organization is run by the Church of Scientology their anti-psychiatry public service literature doesn't teach Scientology. My quote from them above should not be misconstrued as my endorsement of Scientology as I am not a Scientologist nor am I familiar with what they teach.

It is very clear that psychiatry kills. The term psychiatric abuse is an understatement because the whole purpose of psychiatry is to abuse. The only legitimate form of psychiatry is that of the talking psychiatrist who doesn't use mind altering chemicals. This is the type of psychiatrist Dr. Peter R. Breggin, M.D. author of Toxic Psychiatry is. God bless Dr. Peter Breggin MD for his work. If you haven't already, read his book entitled Toxic Psychiatry for a lot of good info. This is Dr. Peter Breggin’s web-site address. http://www.breggin.com Psychiatry kills.
The thesis above concerning the biological ramifications of the administration of these drugs is new and is not contained in Dr. Peter Breggin's book but his book does contain a great deal of useful information not contained in this report.
Resist psychiatry’s forced drugging. Use the evidence in this report to argue in probate court that the involuntary administration of these drugs is a violation of all your fundamental constitutional rights, most importantly the right to life and the pursuit of happiness. They will not be able to get around these two rights. They take away liberty from the "mentally ill" under the guise that they are supposedly not competent to make their own decisions regarding their own medical care, but they will not be able to get around these other two rights. If possible get your own attorney rather then allowing the court to appoint one for you because it is my experience that these court appointed attorneys are not really motivated to defend you and may even be secretly serving the interest of the other side. If you do not get a favorable decision in the probate court then insist on an appeal and remember to attempt to maintain your determination to follow through with the appeal realizing that these drugs take away your will power and ability to resist domination. Use this knowledge to fight this effect of the drugs. If necessary appeal these constitutional issues all the way to the Supreme Court. Only when we as a people fight and defend our rights will changes be made, not only for our personal protection but also for that of our loved ones and our children and our children's children.
You can beat psychiatric drugging. If you resist they will more then likely back down. It costs a lot of money to house someone in an institution and the county you live in must pay for it. In Ohio medicaid pays $480 a day and the state picks up the rest for a total cost of $800 to $1000 a day. Nine times out of ten they will be unwilling to do this, so stick by your guns and resist psychiatric drugging. Don’t show up to get the injections and make them send a police officer after you to bring you into the inpatient unit. All this resistance will pay off because they will more then likely give up. They will lock you up in isolation for a few days hoping they will be able to brake your will power. If you continue to resist and maintain your resolve they will give up. Believe me, I speak from experience. If they do send you to an institution then 9 times out of 10 this will be a scare tactic and will only be temporary so maintain your resolve to resist. Be sure to never sign anything they want you to sign no matter what. If they apply a lot of pressure to get you to sign something just say that you want your lawyer to read it first. They keep people up to 90 days by court order in an institution so stick by your guns on the rare chance that this happens to you. Use the evidence in this report to fight for your rights in court and appeal if necessary all the way to the USA Supreme Court. Also remember to not fight back in any physical way even under extreme provocation because they will take this as proof that they are justified in any action they take against you and will be detrimental in any defense you may offer to the court. Use passive resistance. Make them hold you down to give you injections but do not try to harm the provocateurs.
You can also protect yourself by getting a living will, which states your wishes should you ever become "incompetent". If you are currently involved in the mental health system it will become necessary to have your lawyer accompany you to see your psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, therapist etc. to get them to sign an affidavit concerning your current competency to enter into a living will. Don’t tell the mental health official that you want this affidavit for the purpose of avoiding involuntary drugging or you will most likely not get their cooperation. Tell them that you need a living will so you will not be kept on life support should you become brain dead etc. so they will be likely to cooperate. You will need this affidavit as a technicality so it can not be claimed at a later date that because you were involved in the mental health system that at the time you entered into the living will you were not competent to do so.
It is not just the "mentally ill" that are affected by this. Routinely these drugs are administered to the retarded (including children) and the elderly in nursing homes as well as Alzheimer's patients, people with head injuries or brain damage etc... These drugs are even prescribed to teenagers and young children who simply have a hot temper, which ironically the drugs make worse.

This list contains generic names and many brand names used in the USA and Canada. This list is by no means comprehensive. Please help provide the names used in other countries by E-mailing me.
All the drugs above affect metabolism and the production of hormones in the body by their dopamine antagonism. All these drugs will shorten life span by their very nature and the FDA does not even require animal test on these drugs to determine how they affect the duration of life span. Such test should be done with guinea pigs because of their inability to manufacture their own vitamin C within their livers like that of us humans. Psychiatry is abusive and the whips and chains of Bedlam live on but they are now chemical in nature.

Footnote A: Support Coalition International reported: Consider the well-publicized heat wave deaths in the summer of '95. Member Jerry Egan sent Dendron the Chicago Tribune (7/22 & 7/26/95) in which Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen revealed that "in Milwaukee, 15 of the 24 deaths due to heat stroke also involved psychiatric drugs." In other words, the coroner attributed more than 60% of these deaths to psychiatric drugs. According to the US Dept. of Health & Human Services, neuroleptics are indeed a major culprit in heat wave deaths (DHHS MMWR; 6/30/95, p. 467) Dr. Frederick Zugibe, medical examiner of Rockland County in New York State, is a hero in our movement for breaking the silence over these past 20 years about neuroleptic-related deaths. In a phone interview, he recalled how his autopsy findings about frequent neuroleptic-related deaths made the front page of The New York Times [7/17/78]. Whistleblowing led to harassment. "Colleagues even called me late at night saying I should resign," said Zugibe, "but I stayed at my job, and later I won awards." Little has changed he said, and he partly blames coroners for remaining so silent.
Footnote B: An inspection of the molecular structure of most neuroleptics will reveal reactive compounds molecularly bounded to the benzene ring of these drugs such as fluorine and chlorine. It is these reactive compounds that give the molecule its catalytic ability to destroy the receptor by cleaving the protein apart that makes up the receptor. Both the neuroleptics that act on dopamine receptors (as well as other psychoactive drugs) and the neurotransmitter dopamine and other catecholamines contain a benzene ring. This is the mechanism that most neuroleptics employ in destroying the receptors, which are on the ends of dendrites. So as you can see the function of these drugs is to create damage to the dopaminergic system. In effect the drugs cause brain damage. Dr. Peter Breggin reveals in his book "Toxic Psychiatry" studies that have been done that reveal people who have been on these drugs for ten years or more have a severely atrophied brain (brain shrinkage). People in their thirties who have been on these drugs for ten years or more have the brain size of a person in their seventies. Since these drugs destroy or disable the dopaminergic receptors they prevent dopamine from interacting with the receptor ever again forcing neurons to randomly grow new dendrites creating neurofibrillary tangles in a defensive measure to counteract the brain damage. After a person goes off the drugs in time new receptors will form but the brain changes caused by the drugs are permanent. Personally I suffered problems with hyperpyrexia two years after I received two 100mg Haldol dec injections and still have a very low tolerance to high temperatures. I have a theory that the brain shrinkage caused by these drugs is at least partly due to fact that the brain is constantly attempting to replace lost receptors and amino acids are constantly being used to construct new receptors taking away from the amino acid needs of other brain systems leading to the atrophy. Studies have also shown that phenothiazine promote the production of free radicals in the brain and body. (Chignell, C.F., Motten, A.G. and Buettner, G.R. (1985) "Photoinduced free radicals from chlorpromazine and related phenothiazines. Relationship to phenothiazine induced photosensitization." Environ. Health Perspect., 64, 103 110.) Free radicals are believed to be one of the causes of the neurofibrillary tangles found in Alzheimer's patients and also the brain damage of Parkinson's Disease. Ironically these drugs are commonly given to patients with Alzheimer's Disease which these drugs make worse. Also free radicals are believed to be a major cause in the aging process. Here is more proof psychiatric drugs shorten life span.
Footnote C: A legitimate religious ground for not taking these drugs would be the Christian Biblical teaching that the use of mind altering chemicals and poisons on someone is witchcraft. Witches used to exercise their control over others through a "magick spell" using secret mind altering chemicals. Or a witch would use something like deadly nightshade to poison someone. See http://www.dogma.org/femmegothique/intro.htm and look for the words "Deadly Nightshade" on this neo-witch site. Unfortunately the site has been taken down but there still is a link on the host site that still has the words "deadly nightshade" but the link will be dead. I don’t know how much longer it will remain. See Richard Restak MD’s book called "Receptors" for a detailed discussion of how witches used to use anticholinergic drugs and how the myth that a witch could fly on a broomstick came about.
Also these neuroleptics drugs can be very sedating making one sleep a lot. Witches used such drugs as a means of control over people in the past. This fact is revealed in the Disney fairy tell "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". The evil queen who was also a witch soaked an apple in a cauldron of mind altering chemicals and tricked Snow White into eating it and she fell asleep. Also in the Disney fairy tell "Sleeping Beauty" the witch poisoned the prick of a spindle and used hypnosis to get the princes to prick her finger on it and she fell asleep. In the movie "The Wizard of Oz", the "wicked witch of the west" caused Dorothy and company to fall into a deep sleep by means of spreading a poison dust over a field of flowers which Dorothy and the Lion breathed in because the scent of the flowers inspired deep inhalation. There is symbolism here as well because the flowers are the opium poppy the source of codeine, morphine and heroin. These drugs except the last one have been a favorite of doctors for years. Granted these are just "stories" but stories have basis in fact. See sub-footnote A for a tangential discussion of the wizard in the movie "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and Freemasonry.
The psychiatrist witches want to turn you into Sleeping Beauty with a figurative poison apple, a neuroleptic drug. Psychiatrist have been known to put the neuroleptics into the juice of "patients" who were refusing to take the drugs "voluntarily" and the nurses would offer it to the "patient" who unknowingly would consume the poison. Believe me, I speak from experience. The hospital this happened to me at was Grand View Hospital in Dayton Ohio. I also read in a medical book under one neuroleptic how the author described how easily Depakene could be added into the food of a "noncompliant patient".
The Bible book of Revelation states at chapter 21 verse 8 this: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and the murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Revelation 22:15 says: "For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murders, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." These two scriptures are quoted out of the King James Version of the Holy Bible. The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures reads as follows: Revelation 21:8 "But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake of fire that burns with fire and sulphur. This means the second death." Revelation 22:15 "Outside are the dogs and those who practice spiritism and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone liking and carrying on a lie."
Notice that the King James Version uses the word sorcerers and the New World Translation uses the phrase "those practicing spiritism". To understand the root meaning of this word it will be necessary to look up the word sorcerers in The New Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Of The Bible (King James Version) by James Strong, LL.D., S.T.D. Copyright 1890. After finding the word sorcerers in the index you will see these two scriptures of Revelation listed. There will be two numbers which are 5332 and 5333 on the far right where sorcerers is indexed. You will need these numbers to locate the original Greek words in the Greek Dictionary in the back of this book. You will notice in this dictionary will be listed different grammatical forms of this Greek word from number 5331 to 5333. They are pharmakeia, pharmaeus, pharmakon, and pharmakos. These are the same Greek words that the English words pharmacy, pharmacist, pharmacology, pharmaceutical, pharmacist, phramacopoeia or pharmacopeia, etc. are derived from. In the dictionary at the back of this book it will say the Greek words above mean, druggist or poisoner, magic (magick), sorcerer, magician, witchcaft. If you are not a Christian and you are faced with involuntary drugging now would be a good time to convert. If you are already a Christian and face involuntary drugging but didn't know this Bible teaching from God then don't blame yourself, you know now.
The older version of the MD hypocratic oath was addressed to false pagan gods. Also the symbol that medical doctors (MD not DO) use of two snakes wrapped around a pole is pagan in origin. To see this symbol used by the Medical Society that MDs belong to go to this web-site: http://www.drkoop.com Here is a Satanic Witchcraft illustration taken from the web. Notice that this same medical drug symbol is in the goat of mendes lap. To understand the symbolism of some of this such as the candle on this goats head it will be necessary to go to these web-site resources.
Tell the judge that as a Christian it violates your religious faith to allow witchdoctors to practice witchcraft on you. Explain what you have learned. According to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in the USA the judge must follow certain guidelines when you raise this objection, however it has come to my attention that the Supreme Court has ruled this act as "unconstitutional". To find out about this Trojan Horse go to this web-site, http://www.lex-rex.com/newpg.html and http://erlc.com/RLiberty/RFRA/1997/625SupCt.htm. Despite this act being shot down you still have religious liberties granted by the constitution of the USA and can still appeal based on your constitutional rights. Also it is illegal for them to label any religious belief a "delusion" and it is illegal for them to "treat" you based on your religious beliefs labeled as "delusions".
If the judge doesn't allow you to exercise your religious liberties by allowing you to remain drug free then file and appeal. If it is difficult for you to remember this information then just print it out so you can read it to the court and tell them these are your beliefs as a Christian.
Remember the web-sites above and look up Leviticus 17:7 which says "And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations." King James Version. This is how this same scripture reads in the New World Translation: "So they should no longer sacrifice their sacrifices to the goat shaped demons with which they are having immoral intercourse. This will serve as a statute to time indefinite for you, throughout your generations." The big difference in these two translations is the use of "devils" verses the phrase "goat shaped demons". To find out why the New World Translation rendered this scripture this way it will be necessary to reference the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the King James Bible Again. Look up devils in the index and find this scripture and see the number 8163? Take this number and look in the back of this book in the Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary and find the number 8163. This will be the original Hebrew word translated into devils in the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Notice that the Hebrew word is saweer' which means shaggy; as noun, a he-goat; by anal. A faun: - devil, goat, hairy, kid, rough, satyr. This is the same satyr in the Disney cartoon Hercules. Isaiah 13:21 speaks of "dancing satyrs" in the King James Version and the New World Translation speaks of "goat shaped demons skipping about". The mythological figure named Pan was a satyr, a half man half goat creature depicted with a musical pipe and dancing about. According to Dr. Anton LaVey author of the Satanic Bible, Freemason and founder of the Church of Satan, Pan and Lucifer are two of the many "infernal" names of Satan the Devil. There are other names listed in the Satanic Bible but these are listed only as support for this footnote. Here is the web-site of the Church of Satan http://www.churchofsatan.com or http://www.churchofsatan.org and the Satanic Network http://www.satannet.com . Satanists promote what they call a "Heroic Society". They support the evil of eugenics.
For the truth about Yehovah Elohim's (Jehovah God’s) Holy Word the Holy Scriptures (Bible) please visit http://www.watchtower.org and fill out the online form to request information. A wonderful paradise on Earth awaits all who put their trust in Jehovah and serve Him. He is going to set up a Kingdom on Earth through His son Yehoshuvah ("JESUS Christ") as King for a thousand years. Armageddon is close so please look to Jehovah before it is too late. True Christians do not support any political party and do not vote. True Christians do not give their allegiance to any nation on the Earth but to Yehovah’s coming Kingdom on Earth. True Christians do not take up arms and go to war. If you are forced to take drugs by injection or have then put down your throat with a plastic tube then pray to Yehovah for protection because he will protect you from poison if it is forced on you if you pray to Him using His Name and end your prayer through His Son Yehoshuvah ("Jesus"), Yeshuah for short. In the Holy Scriptures it promises that Christians will be able to drink poison that is forced on them and it will not harm them. There is also the example of the apostle Paul who was bitten by the poisonous snake and it did not harm him. In Africa and elsewhere Voodoo Witchdoctors are not able to turn Jehovah's Witnesses into Zombies with their Zombie potions. I still have my mind and health intact today and more children because the Almighty Father Yehovah has protected me. But do your best not to take the drugs "willingly" because you may grieve the Holy Spirit and therefore receive no protection.
Sub-footnote A: It is interesting to note that the wizard (In the movie "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz") who claims to be a good man seems to be a Freemason because he speaks of going back to the land of "E Pluribus Unum" so he can be with his "brother wizards", not fellow but "brother" which is what freemasons call each other and freemasons practice the occult what they call the "craft" (Witchcraft). "E Pluribus Unum" means one out of many which is originally all the states of the USA but around the pyramid on the back of the one dollar bill are the words "Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum" which means Announcing the Creation New Secular (or World) Order. The Freemasons are the ones responsible for everything on the back of the one dollar bill. It is interesting to note that the pyramid has thirteen rows of bricks, the shield on the eagle has thirteen stripes, and the eagle holds thirteen arrows and an olive branch that has thirteen leaves and also thirteen olives. There are thirteen stars above the eagle. There are thirteen letters in "Annuit Coeptis" above the pyramid and thirteen letters in "E Pluribus Unum" above the eagle. In Washington DC the thirty three degree Freemason lodge is thirteen blocks North of the Whitehouse. On the back of the one dollar bill the eagle has thirty two feathers on one side representing the thirty two degrees of Freemasonry Scottish Rite and on the other side thirty three feathers for the honorary degree for which one is initiated into the Illuminati. The tail has nine feathers representing the nine additional honorary degrees of the York Rite of Freemasonry. To understand what the pyramid and the eye represents it will be necessary to visit www.maitreya.org and see the document called "Master Plan for Planet Earth" and also see the gratuitous use of the term "World Order". Freemasons are behind the "Mission of Maitreya" and also the United Nations backed "Share International" run by the British theosophist Benjamin Crème. The Mission of Maitreya is claiming no previous affiliation with the UN backed Share International and Benjamin Crème but is inviting them to join them. Crème had always maintained that he was in direct contact with Maitreya telepathically and that Maitreya would make his presence known at anytime. This is a ruse to make it look like things are happening as Benjamin Crème foretold. Bemjamin Creme once called "Lucifer" our God and called him "the director of our planetary evolution". Benjamin Creme is a supporter of Nazi eugenics. For more information see the links below.
Footnote D: This
brings to mind a story that a man at the FDA told me of how a women he knew of
that was institutionalized because her husband who was a doctor pulled some
strings with connections he had, because he was having an affair with another
woman. This man at the FDA told me that when this woman had gotten out of the
institution in her late 30's after years of being forced to take neuroleptics
she had already gone through menopause and her back was humped over with the
characteristics of an old woman. This same man at the FDA told me that the FDA
does not conduct animal studies to determine how these drugs affect the duration
of life span nor do they require the pharmaceutical companies to do so. Does
this shock you? After all the FDA is supposed to be charged with protecting the
safety of the American public. It would be a simple thing to conduct such
studies on animals. Personally I knew of two young women being held in the state
hospital in Dayton Ohio against
their will and being forced to take neuroleptics that have already had to have
hysterectomies because of these drugs. One of these women is now out of this
state institution and I do not know the status of the other woman at this

Nazis, and the United Nations! (U.N.)
by Anton Chaitkin
ROCKEFELLER AND MASS MURDER
The Rockefeller Foundation is the prime sponsor of public relations for the United Nations' drastic depopulation program, which the world is invited to accept at the UN's scheduled September conference in Cairo, Egypt.
Evidence in the possession of a growing number of researchers in America, England, and Germany demonstrates that the Foundation and its corporate, medical, and political associates organized the racial mass murder program of Nazi Germany.
These globalists, who function as a conduit for British Empire geopolitics, were not stopped after World War II. The United Nations alliance of the old Nazi rightwing with the New Age leftwing poses an even graver danger to the world today than the same grouping did in 1941.
Oil monopolist John D. Rockefeller created the family-run Rockefeller Foundation in 1909. By 1929 he had placed $300 million worth of the family's controlling interest in the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey (later called "Exxon") to the account of the Foundation.
The Foundation's money created the medical specialty known as Psychiatric Genetics. For the new experimental field, the Foundation reorganized medical teaching in Germany, creating and thenceforth continuously directing the "Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry" and the "Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Eugenics and Human Heredity." The Rockefellers' chief executive of these institutions was the fascist Swiss psychiatrist Ernst Rudin, assisted by his proteges Otmar Verschuer and Franz J. Kallmann.
In 1932, the
British-led "Eugenics" movement designated the Rockefellers' Dr. Rudin as the
president of the worldwide Eugenics Federation. The movement called for the
killing or sterilization of people whose heredity made them a public
The Racial Laws
A few months later, Hitler took over Germany and the Rockefeller-Rudin apparatus became a section of the Nazi state. The regime appointed Rudin head of the Racial Hygiene Society. Rudin and his staff, as part of the Task Force of Heredity Experts chaired by SS chief Heinrich Himmler, drew up the sterilization law. Described as an American Model law, it was adopted in July 1933 and proudly printed in the September 1933 Eugenical News (USA) with Hitler's signature. The Rockefeller group drew up other race laws, also based on existing Virginia statutes. Otmar Verschuer and his assistant Josef Mengele together wrote reports for special courts which enforced Rudin's racial purity law against cohabitation of Aryans and non-Aryans.
The "T4" unit of the Hitler Chancery, based on psychiatrists led by Rudin and his staff, cooperated in creating propaganda films to sell mercy killing (euthanasia) to German citizens. The public reacted antagonistically: Hitler had to withdraw a tear-jerker right-to-die film from the movie theaters. The proper groundwork had not yet been laid.
Under the Nazis, the German chemical company I.G. Farben and Rockefeller's Standard Oil of New Jersey were effectively a single firm, merged in hundreds of cartel arrangements. I.G. Farben was led up until 1937 by the Warburg family, Rockefeller's partner in banking and in the design of Nazi German eugenics.
Following the German invasion of Poland in 1939, Standard Oil pledged to keep the merger with I.G. Farben going even if the U.S. entered the war. This was exposed in 1942 by Sen. Harry Truman's investigating committee, and President Roosevelt took hundreds of legal measures during the war to stop the Standard-I.G. Farben cartel from supplying the enemy war machine.
In 1940-41, I.G. Farben built a gigantic factory at Auschwitz in Poland, to utilize the Standard Oil/I.G. Farben patents with concentration camp slave labor to make gasoline from coal. The SS was assigned to guard the Jewish and other inmates and select for killing those who were unfit for I.G. Farben slave labor. Standard-Germany president Emil Helfferich testified after the war that Standard Oil funds helped pay for SS guards at Auschwitz.
In 1940, six months after the notorious Standard-I.G. meeting, European Rockefeller Foundation official Daniel O'Brian wrote to the Foundation's chief medical officer Alan Gregg that "it would be unfortunate if it was chosen to stop research which has no relation to war issues" so the Foundation continued financing Nazi "psychiatric research" during the war.
In 1936, Rockefeller's Dr. Franz Kallmann interrupted his study of hereditary degeneracy and emigrated to America because he was half-Jewish. Kallmann went to New York and established the Medical Genetics Department of the New York State Psychiatric Institute. The Scottish Rite of Freemasonry published Kallman's study of over 1,000 cases of schizophrenia, which tried to prove its hereditary basis. In the book, Kallmann thanked his long-time boss and mentor Rudin.
published in 1938 in the USA and Nazi Germany, was used by the T4 unit as a
rationalization to begin in 1939 the murder of mental patients and various
"defective" people, perhaps most of them children. Gas and lethal injections
were used to kill 250,000 under this program, in which the staffs for a broader
murder program were desensitized and trained.
In 1943, Otmar Verschuer's assistant Josef Mengele was made medical commandant of Auschwitz. As wartime director of Rockefeller's Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Eugenics and Human Heredity in Berlin, Verschuer secured funds for Mengele's experiments at Auschwitz from the German Research Council. Verschuer wrote a progress report to the Council: "My co-researcher in this research is my assistant the anthropologist and physician Mengele. He is serving as Hauptstuermfuehrer and camp doctor in the concentration camp Auschwitz.... With the permission of the Reichsfuehrer SS Himmler, anthropological research is being undertaken on the various racial groups in the concentration camps and blood samples will be sent to my laboratory for investigation."
Mengele prowled the railroad lines leading into Auschwitz, looking for twins -- a favorite subject of psychiatric geneticists. On arrival at Mengele's experimental station, twins filled out "a detailed questionnaire from the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute." There were daily drawings of blood for Verschuer's "specific protein" research. Needles were injected into eyes for work on eye color. There were experimental blood transfusions and infections. Organs and limbs were removed, sometimes without anesthetics. Sex changes were attempted. Females were sterilized, males were castrated. Thousands were murdered and their organs, eyeballs, heads, and limbs were sent to Verschuer and the Rockefeller group at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute.
In 1946, Verschuer
wrote to the Bureau of Human Heredity in London, asking for
help in continuing his "scientific research."
In 1947, the Bureau of Human Heredity moved from London to Copenhagen. The new Danish building for this was built with Rockefeller money. The first International Congress in Human Genetics following World War II was held at this Danish institute in 1956. By that time, Verschuer was a member of the American Eugenics Society, then indistingishable from Rockefeller's Population Council.
Dr. Kallmann helped save Verschuer by testifying in his denazification proceedings. Dr. Kallmann created the American Society of Human Genetics, which organized the "Human Genome Project" -- a current $3 billion physical multiculturalism effort. Kallmann was a director of the American Eugenics Society in 1952 and from 1954 to 1965.
In the 1950s, the Rockefellers reorganized the U.S. eugenics movement in their own family offices, with spinoff population-control and abortion groups. The Eugenics Society changed its name to the Society for the Study of Social Biology, its current name.
The Rockefeller Foundation had long financed the eugenics movement in England, apparently repaying Britain for the fact that British capital and an Englishman-partner had started old John D. Rockefeller out in his Oil Trust. In the 1960s, the Eugenics Society of England adopted what they called Crypto-eugenics, stating in their official reports that they would do eugenics through means and instruments not labeled as eugenics.
With support from the Rockefellers, the Eugenics Society (England) set up a sub-committee called the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which for 12 years had no other address than the Eugenics Society.
This, then, is the
private, international apparatus which has set the world up for a global
holocaust, under the UN flag. [For more information about the Planned Parenthood

Bayer, Hoechst AG, IG Farben and Nazi Germany
By Matt Burg
In 1945 the German army surrendered to the allied powers ending World War 2 in Europe. WWII left Germany humiliated and economically devastated.
The Nuremberg trials were conducted to punish those who had committed acts against humanity. I.G. Farben, the corporation that provided the German army with the gas Zyklon B used to exterminate over 6,000,000 Jews was found guilty of war crimes. The International Military Tribunal ordered the corporation to disband. The result of the disbanding of I.G. Farben was the creation of several smaller corporations. One of these corporations called Hoechst AG grew to become a prosperous company with many subsidiaries. Hoechst AG did not die like the court had intended.
In 1980 a group of French scientists accidentally synthesized a molecule that chemically resembles the hormone progesterone. This molecule has a unique ability to bond the progesterone receptor cells and block their normal activity. The result of the molecule's activity is to block the hormone progesterone, vital to maintaining a pregnancy. The Drug was not invented with the goal of terminating pregnancy, however by the time it was synthesized there was the demand for a new and simplified abortion technique.
The drug first entered the spotlight in 1982 and the controversy erupted shortly after. In 1988 the after extensive testing the French government accepted Mifepristone for public use. The drug is now commonly known as RU 486, the name assigned by the inventor Rousell-Uclaf, a division of the chemical company Hoechst AG. The drug was removed from circulation in France only a month after it was released for public use. The drug was removed by Rousell's CEO Wolfgang Hilger; a devout Catholic after Rousell Uclaf was flooded with letters from outraged Roman Catholic doctors, and after Church-sponsored protests marched through the streets of Paris. The drug was returned to circulation after a group of Pro-Choice Doctors met in Rio de Janeiro and petitioned the French Government. Less than 48 hours later the French Government forced Roussel Uclaf to return the drug to circulation.
RU 486 will allow Rousell Uclaff, a division of Hoechst AG to increase the corporation's production in America. The company has deeper intentions than what is obvious. Hoechst AG a company with deep roots in the Nazi party intends to control the population of the world and eliminate the lesser races as Hitler intended through the use of RU 486 and the World Health Organization.
Rousell Uclaff is a division of Hoechst AG, a large worldwide chemical corporation that was founded in 1863 in Germany. This small company with, only 5 employees, manufactured chemical dyes. In 1925, several German chemical companies merged into a single corporation with the name IG Farbenindustrie, Inc. (IG Farben) World War I created a demand for chemical products. After WWI, the devastated German government gave IG full government support by eliminating taxes and loaning the company funds. In 1925, the company changed it's to IG Farbenindustrie A. G. IG became one of the military industrial powers of the Ruhr, owning its own coalmines.
In 1932 IG gave Adolf Hitler its full support during the election and so Hitler was presented with the Chancellorship of Germany. Without the support of the IG and the rest of the German monopolies and cartels, Hitler could not have won his political fight. And the German industrialists could see that without Hitler their empires would crumble. During WWII IG produced all of Germany's synthetic rubber, lubricating oil, synthetic gasoline, the greatest bulk of German explosives, 90% of plastics, and light metals. More than any other corporation IG sat at the center of a web of international cartel agreements. IG participated in the plunder of conquered countries including Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Norway, Holland, Belgium, France and the rest of Central Europe. IG took over control of every chemical plant of importance in countries conquered by the Nazi Empire. IG played an important role in adapting the industries of those countries to the purposes of the Nazi war machine.
IG Farben ran the Buna Rubber Works at Auschwitz by opening a corporate concentration camp known as Monowitz on May 21, 1945. I.G Farben used slave labor extensively in many of their factories throughout the Nazi Empire.
IG was a big part in developing chemical/gas warfare. Toxic gases were produced at Hoechst, Afga and Leverkusen plants.
IG produced fully 95% of the poison gases for Germany. It was called Zyklon B, a commercial form of hydrocyanic acid, which became active on contact with air. It was manufactured by a firm called Degesch which was largely owned by IG Farben, and it had been brought to Auschwitz in the summer of 1941 as a vermin-killer and disinfectant.
In 1945, when the International Military Tribunal was announced and began trying Nazi officials for crimes committed during WWII, the list of crimes which one could be indicted were as follows:
(1) Conspiracy to commit charges 2, 3, and 4, which are listed here;
(2)crimes against peace-defined as participation in the planning and waging of a war of aggression in violation of numerous international treaties;
(3) war crimes-defined as violations of the internationally agreed upon rules for waging war; and
(4) crimes against humanity-"namely, murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, and other inhumane acts committed against any civilian population, before or during the war; or persecution on political, racial, or religious grounds in execution of or in connection with any crime within the jurisdiction of the Tribunal, whether or not in violation of domestic law of the country where perpetrated."
On July 29, 1948, sentences for mass murder and slavery were handed down at the Nuremberg trials to twelve Farben executives. The longest sentence dealt out was to Dr. Fritz ter Meer, a top executive and scientist on the Farben managing board was seven years. After WWII, IG Farben was liquidated and the companies like Bayer, Hoechst, BASF, and AFGA took its place.
In 1949, less than a year after the Nuremberg Trials had ended; Hoechst AG opened a branch in Brazil. The company offered the whole representation of products in Brazil by establishing Pontosan Productos Quimicos, Farmcuticose e Aniilianas and appointed Wilhelm Kurtz as President. The company rapidly expanded and manufactures products ranging from pharmaceuticals to welding and cutting equipment. In 1995 Pontosan Productos Quimicos, Farmcuticose e Aniilianas acquired the company Anilsud, formerly owned by Hoechst Argentina forming an Argentine branch. Today, Pontosan Productos Quimicos, Farmcuticose e Aniilianas renamed Hoechst Commercial is one of the leading companies for the distribution of chemicals in Brazil.
Hoechst International headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany with branches in Asia, Oceania and America. Hoechst employs more than 145 thousand people. Hoechst is one of the largest groups in the chemical industry, with sales of approximately US$ 13158 in DM billions for the first quarter of 1997.
Methods of Action Mifepristone resembles the hormone progesterone yet it has a far different effect on the progesterone receptor cells. Progesterone is a hormone secreted by the uterus when a female gets pregnant. The hormone is vital to maintaining the pregnancy because it stimulates the endometrial lining to supply the embryo with nutrients. Mifepristone is given in 600mg doses When mifepristone enters a progesterone receptor cell, the molecule blocks any further action of the hormone progesterone making the body act as if it were not even pregnant. The lack of progesterone causes erosion of the endometrial lining and so the embryo dies. Two days later Prostaglandin is taken which causes the uterus to contract and will expel the embryo in 97% of the cases. Mifepristone is effective for up to seven weeks after coitus.
Mifepristone has several side effects of varying degrees. Use of Mifepristone can cause heavy bleeding, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and painful uterine contractions. About 2% hemorrhage and more than one in one hundred require hospitalization. Mifepristone effectively terminates pregnancy about 95% of the time.
Researchers have found that mifepristone is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy when used as a method of postcoital contraception if used within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.
In 1983, clinical trials on the use of RU 486 as a method of early abortion began in the U.S. at the University of Southern California, Five years later, Mifepristone was "approved" by the French government forcing the entire country to choose a side on the moral debate. The outrage from members of the Roman Catholic Church brought Roussel Uclaf to their knees and prevented the drug from further circulation. Three days later, the combined efforts of various physicians convinced the French government to force Rousell Uclaf to return the drug to circulation. Anti-abortion forces threatened Roussel Uclaf's parent company, Hoechst AG, with economic reprisal if RU 486 was ever marketed in the United States. In March of 1989, Hoechst informed the anti-abortion forces that the company had no intention of marketing or distributing RU 486 outside of France. President Bush responding to his pro-life platform along with fellow anti-abortion congressional representatives enacted a ban on the importation of RU 486 for personal use.
In July of 1990 the Feminist Majority Foundation delegation met with Rousell Uclaff CEO Edouard Sakiz. Eleanor Smeal, acknowledged as one of America's rights advocates, and Peg Yorkin, a prominent feminist producer and philanthropist founded the FMF in 1987. The organizations with 150,000 male and female members stand up for women's rights (including reproductive rights), equality, and empowerment. Hoechst AG Officials argued that the U.S. political climate is not conductive to U.S. distribution because the current administration had banned the importation of the drug and as the current views of the administration on abortion, distribution was not possible.
In February of 1991, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) endorsed the testing and use of RU 486. With the support of the AAAS, the FMF aggressively and successfully pursued endorsements of RU 486 from almost every scientific and medical organization in the country.
In July of 1992, the first direct challenge of the FDA import alert on RU 486. Last year a pro-choice group called Abortion Rights Mobilization decided to force a court challenge of the import ban imposed on RU 486 (Mifepristone) by the Bush Administration in 1989. The organization helped Leona Benton, a pregnant 29-year-old California social worker, fly to England, obtain a dose of RU 486, then try to bring it back into the U.S. through New York City's Kennedy Airport. Customs officials seized the pills. The ensuing legal battle went up to the Supreme Court, which refused to order the government to return the pills. (The Pill that changes Everything, Pg. 52)
On November 4, 1992, Bill Clinton was elected President of the United States. The FMF immediately sent a letter to a Rousell Uclaf CEO Edouard Sakiz and Hoechst AG CEO Wolfgang Hilger informing them that with Clinton's election and the election of more women and pro-choice members of Congress the political obstacles to RU 486 in this country had "effectively been removed."
FMF is not alone in the legalization debate, other organization who support mifepristone in America are Planned Parenthood Federation of America, a government funded organization specializing in sex and reproductive education. Planned Parenthood Clinics provide pregnancy tests, birth control and abortion services. The organization is also an avid supporter of reproductive rights.
The National Organization for Women is another supporter of mifepristone in America. NOW is a strong supporter of Abortion and Reproductive rights. Now has strongly urged the United States Government to approve mifepristone in America.
There are many organizations that strongly oppose mifepristone in America. The National Right to Life Committee is a strong force in the Abortion debate. The NRLC supports the right to life in all cases including Euthanasia and Abortion.
The National Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee for Pro-Life Activities is a group of eight active U.S. Cardinals who influence the government according to the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. They oppose abortion in all forms stating that life is sacred from conception to birth.
Hoechst and the United Nations
In October of 1996, the United Nations/World Health Organization Codex Alimentarius Commission met in Bonn, Germany to make changes in the rules governing dietary supplements for member nations. Codex is empowered by governments to set standards of operation for the health industry. Over 90% of the international organization are allowed to send delegates to the meetings to represent large multinational pharmaceutical corporations. A proposal made by the German delegation and sponsored by Hoechst, Bayer and BASF the three corporations that were formerly IG Farben before they were ordered to disband after the Nuremberg Trials. The drug company backed proposals call for the following:
1) No vitamin, mineral, herb, etc., can be sold for prophylactic (preventive) or therapeutic reasons.
2) Natural remedies can be sold as food but they must not exceed the potency levels set by the commission. This means that consumer access to dietary supplements will be limited to the RDA dosage as a maximum limit for vitamins. Supplements without a RDA would be illegal to sell because they would become drugs.
3) Codex regulations for dietary supplements would become binding, eliminating the escape clause within the General Agreement of Tariff and Trade (GATT) that allows a nation to set its own standards will be heavily fined by the World Trade Organization (WTO) creating the potential of crippling the entire sectors of that nation's economy.
4) All new supplements would be banned unless they go through the Codex approval process.
This policy is has been enacted in Norway and Germany. This policy if approved would cause pharmacy regulation of many supplements and vitamins causing a significant price increase. Any country not following the policy would be subject to fines from the World Trade Organization.
The Codex process is
now at "Step Five"- formalization and debate concerning the specific features of
the policy. In two years, Codex could jump from step 5 to step8 to finalize the
Hoechst AG a company with deep roots in the Nazi party intends to control the population of the world and eliminate the lesser races as Hitler intended through the use of RU 486 and the World Health Organization. Hoechst AG intends to get RU 486 approved for manufacturing and distribution in America and other countries worldwide so that they can use it to achieve goals further down the road. In 1949 with the disbanding of the formerly IG Farben Corporation into smaller corporations was not set back to Hoechst or any of the other corporations. The corporations could continue to business and the International Military Tribunal had almost helped the corporations out by making them split up.
This helped them in several ways, first the corporations were no longer known by the less than desirable name of IG Farben Corporation the former supporter of Hitler and the German army. Second of all, using the "divide and conquer " tactic, the smaller corporations quickly spread to other countries where they purchased small corporations and used the identity of the smaller corporations to increase sales and profits. The main example of this was the spread of Hoechst AG to Brazil. Less than a year after the Nuremberg Decision had been reached; Hoechst AG had already begun to rebuild in Brazil. This was the first evidence that the liquidation of IG Farben had not worked. The new corporation quickly began to purchase smaller corporations and added them to the increasing list of corporations owned by Hoechst AG International.
Hoechst is an extremely rich and powerful International corporation. The reason why they are building and expanding their branches in new countries is so they can market mifepristone in many countries worldwide. Hoechst will not only achieve financial gain through their expansion but they will also have more control over the countries that they supply with mifepristone.
Hoechst's real motive eludes the groups supporting RU 486 in America. Hoechst's attempts to market mifepristone in America through it's subsidiary Rousell Uclaff could not have come at a better time. The company knew that the Clinton administration supported abortion and reproductive rights so they simply waited until the atmosphere in the country was a bit more to their liking. Using the support from groups like the Feminist Majority Foundation and the National Organization for Women Hoechst would not need Hoechst's ultimate goal is to increase production worldwide of RU 486 to gain representation in the Codex. Because Codex representation is based on nationality, the more countries that Hoechst manufactures in, the more representation in Codex they get. Hoechst can gain representation in the Codex and essentially can control the Global Health Market. Control over the global health market would allow Hoechst to gain control of Global Health Care.
The approval mifepristone in several UN countries would make it much easier for Hoechst to distribute the drug worldwide. If the drug is already legal in the majority of the UN countries then Hoechst will have to do little convincing to get the drug approved in the other countries. This is why Hoechst is attempting to market mifepristone in America and is already manufacturing and distributing the drug in the United Kingdom and in China.
The money and power held by Hoechst could easily influence the World Health Organization which would allow Hoechst to dictate World Health Policy. The backup support of the World Trade Organization would make it almost impossible for any country to oppose the policies influenced mainly by Hoechst.
The corporation would become so powerful that they could regulate the use of mifepristone. They would be able to control who was allowed to use mifepristone and who was not allowed to use mifepristone. Hoechst, with their power and influence could bring the Nazi party back into power in order to continue Hitler's goal of establishing the "perfect race". No longer would they need to use Zyklon B to exterminate the "undesirables."
When a female got pregnant they could simply have her take a dose of Mifepristone and they would not have to waste the time or money to eliminate the "undesirables" by means of lethal force. Hoechst could simply make all of the races other than the Aryan race slowly deplete in number and then simply go extinct. The unfinished goals of World War 2 would be taken care of. There would finally be an end to the Jewish problem. The "perfect race" would rule the World for the rest of Mankind's existence.
become a problem very quickly. Population control is the final explanation for
mifepristone. Humans need to learn to be responsible for their own actions. In
order to prevent history from repeating itself, we need to make sure that humans
never become so irresponsible that an outside force such as Hoechst can come in
and take control. Hitler did it once, let's not let it happen again.
Here is an article taken from the web dealing with eugenics. Author is unknown.
Eugenics is false science. It is about the selective prevention or encouragement of births for social, racial, or political ends. When promoting anti-natalist measures, such measures are often hidden beneath rhetoric about freedom of choice or reproductive health.
When eugenic goals demand increased fertility, those goals may be advanced in the name of national power, race survival, or even family support programs (including maternity leave, day care, child care allowances, etc. as in much of Europe today) which would be considered progressive if not for the intent behind them.
Eugenics is not about reproductive freedom. It is, in fact, the antithesis of reproductive freedom because it is essentially concerned with competitive fertility. As such, it is similar to -- but not identical to -- population control. The distinction here is that eugenics supplies a biological or genetic interpretation to its means and aims. If it is a particular race that is to targeted, for instance, the eugenicist will first offer a "scientific" basis for such a plan -- usually consisting of statistical "evidence" that the disfavored group is less capable of achievement, more prone to anti-social behavior, or otherwise disproportionately responsible for a prevalent social problem. Most importantly, the eugenicist will insist that this "inferiority" is hereditary -- that "excessively" high birthrates among these people will lead to a general decline in the quality of the society as a whole.
Thus the eugenicist will believe it a legitimate and necessary public policy that minimizes procreation among certain groups (sometimes coinciding with the promotion of greater fertility among other segments of the population).
It should be added that an activity designed to influence levels of fertility is not the only tactic available for use under a eugenic program. High rates of incarceration (especially where a large number of young adults are concerned) may be tolerated precisely because imprisonment results in a loss of reproductive opportunity.
Eugenic goals also extend to immigration when an incoming population is defined in some "scientific" way as socially inferior or if an exclusion policy selects by ethnicity or class. As was made abundantly clear under the Nazi program of mass genocide, a well-functioning eugenics operation is never satisfied for long with modest results. It is almost inevitable that the escalation of what is deemed a "useful" activity will be seen advocates as "more useful."
The word eugenics comes from the Greek for "good genes." Therefore, any policy that is thought by advocates to stimulate the prevalence of "good genes" is considered eugenic in its effect. Another term -- dysgenic is applied to a situation in which the undesirable elements grow at a greater rate than the rest.
Finally, it should be pointed out that eugenics can be broken down into several distinct philosophies. Social Darwinism is a term commonly applied to class-based eugenics. The operative theory here is that wealth is spontaneously distributed throughout the society according to the merits of the individuals within the society.
In other words, adherents believe the wealthy are rich because of inherent traits that make them productive members of the community. The poor, on the other hand, are said to be destined to want precisely because they are of "inferior stock." Thus, in the mind of the eugenicist, any effort to promote economic justice will have a dysgenic effect because it only encourages breeding among these "lesser" types.
This kind of thinking can be found not far beneath the surface of contemporary proposals like the "family cap" for welfare parents, certain campaigns to halt teen pregnancy and the flap about an "illegitimacy." Racial eugenics defines people from different regions of the world as having unique evolutionary characteristics which make one group more suited to certain pursuits than another. This is the ideology behind The Bell Curve and similar publications that have aroused controversy in the past few years.
Some proponents of eugenics cite physical or mental disabilities as cause for limits to reproduction. In terms of policy, they are more interested in stigmatizing the alcoholic, the drug abuser, or the mental patient than in seeking authentic forms of treatment and measures that would influence the economic or social environment in which such problems flourish. This form of eugenics has made inroads into many of the more legitimate sciences such as human genetics and bio-ethics. Indeed, eugenics is especially dangerous in this area because of the opportunity to apply obvious truths -- the fact that children inherit physical features from their parents, to name one -- to political issues, such as "criminal tendencies" or an "underclass" culture, in a way that results in discriminatory policies.
For almost 150 years, psychiatry has been masquerading as a medical science and as a branch of medicine. It is not and never was a science or a type of health care. Modern psychiatry is driven by unproved empirical assumptions, medical biases, and pseudo-scientific opinions. There are no scientifically established, independently proven facts in psychiatry. Psychiatry, in fact, has no laws or testable hypotheses and no coherent and comprehensive theory. Psychiatry conspicuously lacks scientific proof or evidence to support its news-media-parroted claims of "mental illness" or "disorders".
After about seventy years of psychiatric practices and research, there is still no diagnostic test for schizophrenia or any of the other three hundred so-called mental disorders listed in the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is essentially a list of class-driven moral judgements of allegedly abnormal behaviour, published and propagandized by the American Psychiatric Association. The DSM is the official bible of organized psychiatry. The DSM is the equivalent of the Malleus Maleficarum in the middle ages, which Spanish inquisitors used to identify, target, stigmatize and burn witches and heretics. Today's witches, heretics, and scapegoats are labeled mentally ill or schizophrenic.
Hospital psychiatry with its emphasis on the control of inmate behaviour through high risk behaviour modification programs, biological "treatments", physical and mechanical restraints, locked doors and wards, and seclusion/isolation rooms, have always exhibited several fascist elements. I want to focus on three: fear, force and fraud. These are the guiding principles and policies used to control citizens and groups in the population whom government leaders and other authorities, including the police and so-called mental health experts, have judged to be dissident, problematic or difficult to control. Hospital psychiatry is very similar to the prison system. In the prison or correctional system psychiatrists have been used as consultants to design dangerous, unethical behaviour modification programs and to conduct high risk drug experiments on prisoners. Both the psychiatric system and the prison system systematically use fear, force and fraud for the purpose of social control and punishment - not for purposes of treatment or rehabilitation, both of which are euphemisms. It is or should be obvious that forced treatment is in fact punishment. It is frequently cruel and usual and should therefore be banned in the United States under that nation's Eighth constitutional amendment. Virtually all treatments in psychiatric facilities are forced or administered without informed consent. They are administered against the "patient's" (the prisoner's) will or with consent obtained by threatening the "patient" with worse consequences, or with consent obtained by keeping the "patient" unaware of important information about serious risks and alternatives. Informed consent in psychiatry is a cruel sham. It doesn't exist.
Fear/Terror - "Terror acts powerfully upon the body through the medium of the mind and should be employed in the cure of madness. Fear accompanied with pain and the sense of shame has sometimes cured the disease". That was written almost two centuries ago in 1818 by Dr. Benjamin Rush, father of American psychiatry, and the first president of the APA, whose face still appears on the official seal of the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Rush advocated and practiced terror by designing and using the straitjacket, the tranquilizer chair and "fear of death" on numerous inmates in 19th century lunatic asylums. Rush once had his son locked up in an insane asylum - some father!
Fear is a powerful motivator in enforcing conformity, obedience and making people submit to authority. Historically, inducing and manipulating fear or masked terror has always been a key policy and practice in all fascist regimes, such as Italy under Mussolini, Nazi Germany under Hitler, and the Soviet Union under Stalin - in fact, under any dictatorship. The threat of punishment, torture and the threat of being killed is enough to cause fear, panic, and terror if most of us. We do as we're told or else.
As used in psychiatry, fear or terror is more selective but is widespread and powerful. In the institution, psychiatry frequently resorts to blackmail to control the more "uncontrollable" and difficult or non-compliant patient. Psychiatrists and other therapists threaten their patients with longer incarceration, higher doses of forced neuroleptics or "antidepressants", and/or threatened transfers to more severe maximum security institutions if they misbehave, fail to follow doctors' orders, refuse to take their "medication", refuse to follow institutional rules, or annoy their captors in other ways. Generally aimed at captive populations of involuntary patients, these threats typically strike fear in many of them, and psychiatrists know it. For example, some years ago, several patients and former patients of Queen Street Mental Health Centre, Toronto's notorious mental hospital or psycho-prison, told me and other activist-critics that psychiatrists have threatened, if they didn't calm down or control themselves, to transfer them to Penetang, the Oakridge division of Penetanguishene Mental Health Centre, a maximum security behaviour modification facility in Ontario, known for its harsh and brutal environment. Penetang was and still is recognized as punishment, one of the most barbaric psycho-prisons in Canada. It should have been shut down years ago, especially after a scathing report about many of its abuses by psychiatrist Steven Harper.
Threatening patients with physical restraints or solitary confinement is also extremely effective in arousing fear or panic in patients. On virtually every psychiatric ward or unit, there is a place, euphemistically called "The Quiet Room", a barren and forbidden cell-like room, with a mattress or sink, usually no toilet or blankets. While languishing the quiet room, patients are sometimes further restrained by leather cuffs, two-point and four-point restraints, tightly wrapped around their wrists and/or ankles so they can barely move, for hours at a time. The mere threat of loss of freedom, involuntary committal, or being locked up in a psychiatric ward or institution against your will, and without any trial or public hearing, is enough to frighten most of us. In virtually every province and territory in Canada, these are the main criteria or reasons for being locked up or committed to a psychiatric institution: judgement of mental illness or disorder; judgement of threatening to physically hurt yourself or another person; judgement of being unable to look after yourself. Note that these criteria are subjective moral judgements of dissident behaviour based on observation and opinion, not medical or scientific facts. Despite the fact that mental illness or mental disorder, which in my opinion is a metaphor for dissidence, has never been officially classified as a medical disease or illness, only physicians are legally authorized to make these non-medical and fateful judgements.
In Ontario, any doctor can sign a committal form which forces an individual to be locked up in any psychiatric facility for the first 72 hours for observation and assessment. Two other doctors can sign a form authorizing an individual's imprisonment for another 2-4 weeks. During the last few years, approximately 50% of thousands of people treated in Ontario's nine psychiatric hospitals were involuntarily committed.
The threat or fact of losing your freedom being locked up in a psychiatric facility for days or months at a time is terrifying. The minimal or non-existent advocacy currently provided in Ontario makes the right to appeal or protest a sham, and this serves to heighten people's fear and despair. The mere threat of forced psychiatric treatment as well as the treatment itself can be terrorizing - e.g., electroshock, also called electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), but more accurately called electro-convulsive brainwashing by shock survivor critics such as Leonard Frank. My close friend Mel told me of being dragged by several aids along the hallway to a hospital shockroom. I can imagine his terror and the terror of others who suffered the same fate. I suffered a similar terror when I was forcibly subjected to over 50 subcoma insulin shocks in the 1950s. To the surprise of many people, this barbaric brain-damaging and memory destroying treatment not only exists, but is expanding in Canada and the United States. Its main targets are women and the elderly, particularly elderly women.
There is also the threat of psychiatric drugs, euphemistically called "medication". These chemicals such as minor tranquilizers, antidepressants and the anti-psychotics such as Haldol, Modicate, Thorazine, and the so-called mood modifier Lithium, are not natural substances but are manufactured poisons, aptly called neurotoxins by psychiatrist and psychiatry critic Peter Breggin in several of his books and Joseph Glenmullen, a clinical instructor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, in his book Prozac Backlash. These chemicals have no scientifically proven medical value or benefit. What they do is control or subdue any problematic or disturbing behaviour, mood and emotion. These toxins, particularly neuroleptics like Haldol, Modicate, Chlorpromazine, are so disabling, powerful and fearsome that many psychiatric survivors and other critics call them chemical lobotomies or chemical straitjackets. These drugs have many serious and disabling effects, called "side effects" to minimize how they are perceived, such as trembling, uncontrollable shaking or movement of the hands or other parts of the body (which occur in the neurological disorder such as Parkinsonism or tardive dyskenisia), powerful muscular cramps, blurred vision, restless pacing, nightmares, sudden outbursts of anger, agitation, memory loss, fainting, blood disorders, seizures, and sudden death. These so-called side effects are the drugs' intended effects. This fear of psychiatric drugs is compounded by ignorance and uncertainty, because psychiatrists and other doctors fail to inform patients of the drugs' horrific effects.
Without the use or threat of force, fascism could not exist. Machiavelli, Mussolini, Hitler knew this. All dictators, would-be dictators, and bullies know this basic fact. And this is the case with psychiatry. Without the use and threat of force, institutional psychiatry would die. Lots of psychiatrists would be out of a job. I wish that would happen! Psychiatry gets its authority and power to force, imprison, involuntarily commit, and treat individuals against their will from the state.
Mental health legislation gives psychiatrists and other physicians the power to involuntarily commit any person they "believe", after only minutes of examination, to be dangerous to themselves or others. This is problematic. The Mental Health Act wrongly assumes that doctors can predict dangerous and violent behaviour, which they cannot do. It is worth emphasizing that Ontario's Mental Health Act, as with other mental health acts across Canada and the United States, legally sanction the state to use force to detain or imprison people for days, weeks or months at a time. Unfortunately, there has never been a public outcry or protest over the fact that people judged or assumed to be crazy or dangerous, but not charged with any crime, can nevertheless be locked up without a trial or the legal rights accorded to people charged with crimes such as murder or rape. This is prevention detention, which is illegal in Canada and other so-called democratic countries, but it is legal and a common practice in all police states and totalitarian countries. I know of no lawsuit challenge to involuntary committal as preventive detention and therefore as unconstitutional.
In institutional psychiatry in fascist states, forced treatment is the rule, not the exception. Forced treatment and tortuous terminal medical experiments inflicted on thousands of Jews, gypsies, political prisoners, women and children, were carried out in death camps during World War II throughout Nazi Germany. There is now irrefutable, documentary evidence that it was the German psychiatrists, particularly prominent professors of psychiatry, and psychiatry department heads, who were chiefly responsible for initiating and administering the infamous T4 program, which involved the mass murder of over 200,000 mental patients and thousands of sick and disabled children and adults during the holocaust. The term euthanasia and mercy death to describe this murderous program is a cruel euphemism.
Much of biological psychiatry, which is largely based on unproved assumptions about the biological and genetic causes of schizophrenia and other mental disorders, can be traced back to the racist, eugenics-driven psychiatrist in Nazi Germany, Ernst Rudin, who propagated the myth that schizophrenia is a genetic disease. He, along with hundreds of other psychiatrists in the T4 program of mass murder of psychiatric patients, is still cited in some psychiatric journal articles, as documented by researcher-activist Lenny Lapon in his brilliant book, Mass Murderers in White Coats: Psychiatric Genocide in Nazi Germany. He states that several German psychiatrists from the Nazi era emigrated to the United States and Canada and succeeded in indoctrinating many of his colleagues in his biological, genetic and racist theories of mental illness. Heinz Layman who emigrated to Canada in 1937, is chiefly responsible for introducing Thorazine or Chlorpromazine, and propagated the use of psychiatric drugs in Canada.
We now have an epidemic of brain damage caused by psychiatric drugs, partly due to Layman and all the other doctors he taught. In one 1954 journal article, Layman admitted that Thorazine was a "pharmacological substitute for lobotomy". Despite publicly acknowledging this alarming fact, it never stopped Layman from using it on many "schizophrenic" patients in Montreal's Douglas Hospital. Layman also persuaded Ewen Cameron to administer chlorpromazine and many other drugs and massive amounts of electroshock. Chlorpromazine, considered an experimental drug at the time, was widely used on many patients during Cameron's infamous brainwashing experiments at the Allan Memorial Institute in the 1950s and 1960s.
There was no informed consent then, and there is none now. During the Nazi years, the doctors didn't seek permission. According to Nazi ideology, these were "useless eaters", "subhumans". This is a mindset that still rules in biological psychiatry throughout North America. Another legacy of psychiatry in Nazi Germany is the widespread acceptance and justification of abuse to break the will of non-compliant or rebellious patients. Physical or mechanical restraints such as straps, ropes, belts, handcuffs and solitary confinement are used in psychiatric institutions not to treat or protect but to punish people for dissident or rebellious behaviour. It is this naked display of force and threats against patients by hospital staff which resembles the awesome brutality of German psychiatric staff during the holocaust.
Fraud: A very apt quote by Leonard Roy Frank, author of Influencing Minds is "Mystification is psychiatry's defense against the danger of being found out". Many of the labels or diagnoses used by psychiatrists do not refer to real psychiatric problems or to actual illnesses. Psychiatry professor Thomas Szasz has exposed the fraud and the myth of the concept of mental illness in many books, starting with his classic The Myth of Mental Illness. This misrepresentation one of the greatest scientific scandals in our scientific age. The code words that are now used in biological psychiatry such as anti-depressants do not assist people with overcoming depression or get at the causes of depression. The term "Quiet Room" is a fraudulent code for solitary confinement. The word "medication" is also a misleading euphemism and misrepresentation for toxic substances to which many of us have been subjected.
I've tried to show that institutional, coercive psychiatry has a fascist history and that biological psychiatry as practiced today in psychiatric facilities in Canada and the United States is still based on fear, force and fraud. Psychiatry does not deserve public or government support. We must work to abolish psychiatry. We must also continue working to create self-help advocacy groups, more drop-in centers, and more affordable, supportive housing in our communities. We need to create our own alternatives to the monstrous and evil mental health system. By doing this, we empower ourselves. This is our work, our challenge, and our hope.

Brain Shrinkage in "Schizophrenics" Caused by Drugs not Disease!
By Shemuwel Antoine Moser
Recently within the USA and possibly elsewhere there has been much publicity within the media about so-called evidence of a biological cause for "schizophrenia." Recent autopsies performed on several "schizophrenics" revealed severe atrophy of the brain; also called brain shrinkage.
An extremist psychiatrist named E. Fuller Torrey who is an aggressive lobbyist for state sanctioned forced psychiatric drugging has taken this information and is arguing for a biological cause for "schizophrenia." Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is, nearly every one of these autopsies were performed on people who have taken antipsychotic drugs - also called neuroleptics or neuroleptic drugs - for ten years or more. These autopsies rather than providing evidence of a biological cause for schizophrenia, are actually providing evidence that the neuroleptic drugs have caused the brain shrinkage.
The truth is that before the advent of psychiatric medications, thousands upon thousands of autopsies have been performed on so-called "schizophrenics"; which did not reveal any brain shrinkage whatsoever. For many years long before the advent of antipsychotic medications, inmates of psychiatric institutions had no say so what so ever as to what would be done with their bodies when they died. Most of these inmates of the psychiatric institutions received autopsies where their brains were removed and used for scientific study, and their brains were determined to be indistinguishable from that of a "normal" brain.
The fallacious explanation of how this brain shrinkage is supposedly supposed to occur is that as a person matures they start pruning off dendrites but "schizophrenics" prune off an excessive number of dendrites until their brains shrink severely. There is no real proof whatsoever of these fallacious claims. What is actually happening however is that when the chemical that makes up the drug blocks the dopamine receptors on the ends of dendrites, therefore acting as a chemical straight jacket by preventing neuronal communication between dendrites, the receiving dendrites cut-off from communication from its neuronal mate can only make the assumption that its neuronal mate has died. So the only option the neuron can make is to prune off that dendrite because it has lost contact with the other neuron due to the chemical strait jacket of the antipsychotic drugs. If a neuron looses contact with enough dendrites the cell will commit "suicide" and die.
Rather than admit the truth about the severe brain damage that these antipsychotic drugs are causing due to fear of an avalanche of lawsuits, the government-backed psychiatric and pharmaceutical establishments are seeking a cover-up by making the reprehensible claim that the drug induced brain damage that they themselves are causing is actually biological evidence for a cause of "schizophrenia".
E. Fuller Torrey's last outrageous fallacious claim for a biological cause for "schizophrenia" was that our brains were infected with the herpes virus. E. Fuller Torrey is a manic fanatic that is foaming at the mouth with the insatiable desire to force antipsychotic drugs on anybody who violates the underwritten rules of society.
Now the rest of the government-backed psychiatric and pharmaceutical establishments have jumped on E. Fuller Torrey's bandwagon for fear of going bankrupt due to an avalanche of lawsuits which would be the result if they acknowledge the brain atrophy that they have caused to thousands upon thousands of victims. Perhaps even millions.
Remember that it has not been that long ago since the psychiatric establishment were performing brain butchering by jamming an ice pick like instrument between the eyes of their "schizophrenic" victims and then twirling the instrument around and around in circular like motions thereby destroying the frontal lobes of the brain which they called the lobotomy. Just as in the days of the lobotomy it is still the psychiatric establishment's desire to cause those labeled "insane" serious brain damage.
Long before the days of the lobotomy the Hospital of St. Mary of Bethlehem, an institution in London England for the "mentally ill" from which the word bedlam was coined, psychiatric inmates were chained to the wall and whipped with whips; thus the phrase "the whips and chains of bedlam." In Nazi Germany 260,000 to 280,000 psychiatric inmates were executed by the Nazis as they were the very first victims of the holocaust.
After World War II under a top-secret program called Project Paper Clip countless numbers of Nazi scientists were imported into the United States; a good portion of them being psychiatrists. In fact so many psychiatrists being former Nazis immigrated to the United States of America that sometime after World War II one-third of all psychiatrist in the United States were former Nazis. Many of these went to work for the CIA and helped with their mind control programs such as MKULTRA and MKDELTA. Many went into private practice while others procured employment within universities to teach the USA's next-generation of psychiatrists.
It is not surprising that the government-controlled media in the USA have jumped on the bandwagon of the government backed psychiatric and pharmaceutical establishments to promote this horrendous cover-up.
The psychiatric establishment started out as state-sponsored hate crimes against those who are different. Given the extremely long sordid history of the psychiatric establishment in abusing those labeled "insane" it is no wonder that they are willing to lie in order to cover up the incalculable damage that they have caused to countless numbers of their victims. It is incomprehensibly reprehensible that the drug induced brain damage that the psychiatric and psychological establishment are inflicting on their victims is actually being used as "proof" of a biological cause for "schizophrenia". E. Fuller Torrey should be hung from the highest tree as quickly as possible. And the government sponsored propaganda of the media should be ashamed of the continued disinformation campaign concerning the issue of psychiatric drugs and "mental illness". The "whips and chains of bedlam" live on. They are now chemical in nature.
Recently the DoD (Department of Defense) has given E. Fuller Torrey his own brain lab. Why would the DoD be interested in researching the brain unless it is to continue the sinister mind control efforts started by the CIA. These evil people will stop at nothing until they obtain complete ownership and control of everyone’s mind. Dan Rather of CBS news parroted on national TV the words of E. Fuller Torrey . Yes psychiatrists really are shrinks and they can shrink your brain if you don't get protection from the Almighty Father Yehovah. See http://www.watchtower.org/ .
Read the book by the psychiatrist Dr.Peter R. Breggin, M.D. called "Toxic Psychiatry" for more information on the brain shrinkage caused by psychiatric drugs and the fraud and nemesis of all labeled with a psychiatric label; Dr. E. Fuller Torrey.

Sterilization of Native American Women
Reviewed by Omaha Master's Student
Bruce E. Johansen
For: José Barreiro (editor-in-chief of NATIVE AMERICAS)
On the phone, during
long marches, occupying federal surplus property, in court fighting for treaty
rights -- wherever Indian activists gathered during the "Red Power" years of the
1970s, conversation inevitably turned to the number of women who had had their
tubes tied or their ovaries removed by the Indian Health Service. This was, I
heard one woman joke bitterly at the time, a "fringe benefit of living in a
domestic, dependent nation."
Communication spurred by activism provoked a growing number of Native American women to piece together what amounted to a national eugenic policy, translated into social reality by copious federal funding. (See sidebar) They organized WARN (Women of All Red Nations) at Rapid City, South Dakota, as Native women from more than thirty nations met and decided, among other things, that "truth and communication are among our most valuable tools in the liberation of our lands, people, and four-legged and winged creations."
WARN and other women's organizations publicized the sterilizations, which were performed after pro-forma "consent" of the women being sterilized. The "consent" sometimes was not offered in the women's language, following threats that they would die or lose their welfare benefits if they had more children. At least two fifteen-year-old girls were told they were having their tonsils out before their ovaries were removed.
The enormity of government-funded sterilization has been compiled by a masters' student in history, Sally Torpy, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Her thesis, "Endangered Species: Native American Women's Struggle for Their Reproductive Rights and Racial Identity, 1970s-1990s," which was defended during the summer of 1998, places the sterilization campaign in the context of the "eugenics" movement.
No one even today knows exactly how many Native American women were sterilized during the 1970s. One base for calculation is provided by the General Accounting Office, whose study covered only four of twelve IHS regions over four years (1973 through 1976). Within those limits, 3,406 Indian women were sterilized, according to the GAO.
Another estimate was provided by Lehman Brightman, who is Lakota, and who devoted much of his life to the issue, suffering a libel suit by doctors in the process. His educated guess (without exact calculations to back it up) is that 40 per cent of Native women and 10 per cent of Native men were sterilized during the decade. Brightman estimates that the total number of Indian women sterilized during the decade was between 60,000 and 70,000.
By 1970, anecdotal evidence of the surge in sterilization began to accumulate, according to Torpy's detailed account. For example, welfare case workers in Apollo, Pennsylvania had removed Norma Jean Serena's daughter Lisa, three years of age, and son, Gary, age four, from her home before she underwent a tubal ligation after the birth of her son Shawn, in 1970. One day after Shawn was removed to a foster home, Serena signed consent forms for the surgery, emotionally battered by accusations of case workers that she was an unfit mother.
Three years later, with legal assistance from the Council of Three Rivers Indian Center in Pittsburgh, Serena sued Armstrong County for return of her children from foster care. She also sued a number of area hospitals for damages related to her sterilization. A jury found that the children had been taken under false pretenses from Serena, who is of mixed Creek and Shawnee ancestry.
During trial, attorneys for Serena questioned the "evidence" on which welfare case workers had decided to take her children and recommend her sterilization. The main "problem" seemed to have been the fact that black friends of Serena visited her home, as reported by anonymous tipsters in the neighborhood who asserted fear for their own children. While one caseworker described Serena's apartment as "dirty and unkempt," and her children as "undernourished and dazed," unable to walk, speak, or hold eating utensils, a doctor who examined the children shortly afterwards found them "alert and in good health." According to Torpy's account, Serena was awarded $17,000 by a jury, and her children were ordered released to her. The Armstrong County child welfare bureaucracy stalled several months before returning the children, according to Torpy's account, and did so only after officials were confronted with a contempt-of-court citation.
Parts of Serena's case were not settled until 1979, when several doctors and a male social worker were acquitted of having violated her civil rights by taking part in her sterilization. The key issue was whether she had given consent for the operation. Serena said she could not recall having signed a consent form; the attending physician said he had explained the operation to Serena and that he was convinced she understood him. A jury agreed.
At about the same time that Serena had her run-in with case workers, a twenty-six year old Native American woman entered the office of a Los Angeles physician in 1970 seeking a "womb transplant" because she had been having trouble getting pregnant. The doctor, who never asked her name, told the woman she had been the subject of an hysterectomy, removal of her ovaries, which cannot be reversed. The operation had been performed under false pretenses. The woman, who was engaged to be married and who had hoped to raise a family was "devastated," according to Torpy.
The last vestiges of legally sanctioned eugenics played out during the 1960s, when concern about overpopulation expressed by industrial leaders in the United States (most notably by members of the Rockefeller family) became official federal policy -- with massive spending to back it up -- under the Nixon administration. Sterilization for the poor and minorities was officially sanctioned in 1970, just about the time students were killed at Kent and Jackson State universities as they protested expansion of the Vietnam War. Reservation populations became targets of a policy that also was being advocated nationally, especially for poor and minority women. In 1969, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists also had relaxed its own restrictions on sterilizations.
In 1970, when the IHS initiated its sterilization campaign (paid 100 per cent by federal funds), the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare vastly accelerated programs that paid 90 per cent of the costs to sterilize non-Indian poor women, following enactment of the Family Planning Act of 1970. The rate of sterilization for women as a whole in the United States then jumped by 350 per cent in five years, according to Torpy's research.
Before 1969 (following Nixon's election as president) funding of sterilizations (as well as abortion) had been banned by the federal government. Between 1969 and 1974, HEW increased its family planning budget from $51 million to more than $250 million, Torpy found. HEW records reveal that between 192,000 and 548,000 women were sterilized each year between 1970 and 1977, compared to an average of 63,000 a year between 1907 and 1964, a period which included the zenith of the eugenics movement.
Torpy reports that during 1977 Dr. R.T. Ravenholt, director of the United States Agency for International Development (office for population control), said that the United States hoped to sterilize 25 per cent of the world's roughly 570 million fertile women. Ravenholt linked such control measures to the "...normal operation of U.S. commercial interests around the world." These statements were published in a news story in the St. Louis Dispatch.
During this wave of sterilizations, no other medical structure had the captive clientele of the IHS, however. "Native American women represented a unique class of victims among the larger population that faced sterilization and abuses of reproductive rights," Tropy wrote in her thesis. "They had, and continue to have, a dependent relationship with the federal government which has put them at greater risk..."
Within half a decade, Indian Health Service doctors were sterilizing so many reservation women that, according to Torpy, one Native American woman was being sterilized for every seven babies born.
the Last Gasp of Official Eugenics
By the time sterilization reached its zenith of popularity in the Indian Health Service, it was the last official gasp of a century-old "scientific" effort to breed "desirable" human traits. The pseudo-science of eugenics was born at a time when forced assimilation was the order of the day for most Native Americans, a time when reputable scientists invoked a Social Darwinism that separated all human societies into three classes: civilized (reserved for white European or European-derived cultures), "barbarian," and "savage."
According to Sally Torpy's master's thesis, the word "eugenics" was first used in 1883 by an Englishman, Sir Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin. Galton defined the word as "the use of genetics to improve the human race." He was a recognized genius by the age of eight, having translated Latin into English. All through his life, Galton sought to genetically perpetuate intelligence and reduce procreation by the "mentally deficient." His writings helped to create a "science of race improvement." Galton's first priority was to stop reproduction by "imbeciles, feeble-minded persons, moral imbeciles, and such inebriates, epileptics, deaf, and dumb, and blind persons."
At the same time another pseudo-science, called Craniology, asserted that the intelligence of a race could be measured by the average size of a sample of skulls. Predictably, Nordic Europeans were found to have the largest skulls. In this context, Torpy quotes Edward Spriggs, Jr., writing in The Review of Law and Social Change. Spriggs, writing in the early 1970s, called involuntary sterilization "an unconstitutional menace to the poor." He also wrote that early eugenicists "espoused the theory that a wide variety of individual maladies and even social ills, such as poverty, were eugenic (incurable) in nature and that the best solution was prevention by sterilization."
Eugenics was alternately prescribed for just about anyone deemed to be retarded, antisocial or otherwise unfit to pass on genes to future generations. These theories often were propounded with a definite racial cant in the "era of the vanishing race," a time when Oswald Spengler also wrote that he foresaw the "decline of the West" in a maw of multiethnic madness. Schoolchildren memorized Rudyard Kipling's Gunga Din, with its poetic imagery of the "white man's burden." The theories of Thomas Malthus, a century old by the time eugenics was born, were called into the service of population-control advocates who recalled Malthus' dictum that population grows geometrically while food supply increases only arithmetically.
By 1907, when Indiana enacted the first compulsory eugenic sterilization law, eugenicists generally fell into two ideological camps: "positive eugenicists," who believed that those people with genes deemed behaviorally or racially superior should be encouraged to reproduce. "Negative eugenicists," the category into which the IHS campaign would fall, favored aggressive sterilization of people whose traits should not, in their view, be allowed to remain in the human gene pool.
Eugenics was championed by the American Breeders' Association in the early years of the century. In 1913, the ABA changed its name to the American Genetic Association. This "scientific" association published an academic journal, Journal of Heredity, whose editor, Paul Popenoe, popularized the idea of sterilizing children who (in Torpy's words) "did not show adequate improvement in their schooling by the time of puberty." Eugenic views also were advanced by the Human Betterment Association.
Eugenic views received support during the 1920s from Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendall Holmes, who is quoted by Torpy in a case involving sterilization:
It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime [which he seemed to assume to be predictable and incurable] or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.
society could require mandatory inoculation for disease, said Justice Holmes, it
could require that certain person's fallopian tubes be severed or their ovaries
removed. Eugenics was most often practiced on criminals, the mentally disturbed,
and the poor, many of whom were non-white. When the practice was aimed at
certain ethnic groups, including Native Americans, Spriggs called it "incipient
The International Indian Treaty Council, which helped to mobilize opposition to the sterilization campaign as it unfolded, agreed with Spriggs:
The United Nations Convention on Genocide states that imposing measures intended to prevent births within a group of people...are acts of genocide...[such as] sterilization of women are direct attacks on nationhood. Sterilization must continue as a birth-control choice for women, but for Native people it should be seen in the context of national identity. If an Indian woman is a member of a 3,000-member nation, sterilization has serious consequences for the survival of [her] people as a whole.
opinions popularized the practice throughout the rest of the 1920s and 1930s in
the United States. The American Eugenics Society initially condoned
sterilization of Jews and other "social undesirables" by Hitler's regime in
Germany, then reluctantly distanced itself from Nazi practices after their
manifest cruelty became known.
The effort to enact eugenics legally reached a zenith by 1930, by which time 30 states and Puerto Rico had passed laws requiring mandatory sterilization for a great number and variety of committed or anticipated crimes or moral offenses. Nearly all of the states with such laws allowed legal sterilization of the mentally ill or "defective." In nineteen states, sterilization was legal for parents whose children were thought likely to experience "physical, mental, or nervous disorders." Six states allowed operations to prevent childbirth to parents whose children might be "socially inadequate."
In Michigan, sterilization was legal for anyone deemed "criminally insane." Eleven states allowed sterilization of epileptics. Seven states allowed sterilization of habitual criminals, and two (Washington and Wisconsin) could sterilize "nonhabitual criminals." In Iowa, a person who was deemed to be a "menace to society" might be placed under orders to lose his or her reproductive rights. Also in Iowa, as well as South Carolina, a case of syphilis could earn a court order for sterilization, and in California, Iowa, and Michigan "moral degeneracy" was enough. Five states prescribed sterilization for "sexual deviants or perverts." A sixth state, South Dakota, allowed sterilization for "perverted or abnormal mentality." Other laws prescribed compulsory sterilization for drug addicts and prostitutes.
The state sterilization laws were held to be unconstitutional for the general population under the Bill of Rights (prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment) before the same practices came into vogue within the federal Indian-management bureaucracy.
Outside of very occasional, anecdotal reports in a few major newspapers, the mainstream media generally ignored the wave of sterilizations as it was happening. The first large-audience, detailed description of the sterilizations was published not in the United States, but in Germany. Torpy tapped sources of information in small, specialized (often leftist or health-related) journals of opinion that, taken together, sketch a history of the sterilization campaign. She credits Brightman and the International Indian Treaty Council and others, including Constance Redbird Pinkerton-Uri, for keeping the issue alive enough to spark the interest of Senator James Abourezk of South Dakota, which led to a General Accounting Office report and congressional oversight hearings that eventually curbed the practice.
By 1974, some IHS doctors who were critical of the sterilizations began investigating on their own. Pinkerton-Uri, a physician and law student who is Choctaw and Cherokee, started her own inquiry after complaints were lodged by Native patients against the Claremore, Oklahoma, IHS hospital. Taking publicity about the Serena cases and what she had found at Claremore, along with other pieces of evidence, Pinkerton-Uri began calling Senator Abourezk's office. The office also had received inquiries from Charlie McCarthy, an IHS employee in Albuquerque, regarding sterilizations of Native American women.
Torpy followed the trail of Abourezk's investigation, beginning with an intern in his office, Joan Adams, who took the initiative to investigate whether Native women were being sterilized "without their consent and under duress." This preliminary investigation convinced Adams (and, later, Senator Abourezk) that further study was needed. Abourezk, using Adams' research, then called for a GAO investigation.
Torpy describes the findings of the GAO report, which surveyed IHS records in four of twelve Bureau of Indian Affairs regions: Albuquerque, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, and Aberdeen, South Dakota. The study covered only 46 months, between 1973 and 1976. (As of 1977, the IHS operated 51 hospitals and 86 health centers or clinics.) Within this sample, the GAO found evidence that the IHS or its contractors had sterilized 3,406 women, 3,001 of them of child-bearing age (15 to 44 years).
Since the GAO study did not even begin to arrive at a total number of sterilizations, opponents of the practice looked at the data in another way, as a percentage of the women of child-bearing age in each examined area who were sterilized. In Oklahoma, using the GAO study's numbers, 1,761 of roughly 17,000 women of child-bearing age were sterilized. In Phoenix, the number was lower, 78 of 8,000; in Aberdeen, the figure was 740 of 9,000. They began to make a case that, with only 100,000 fertile Native women of child-bearing age in the United States, the sterilizations were putting a significant dent in the gene pools of many individual Native American nations.
Regarding the threat to the Native American gene pool, Torpy quotes Ms. Pinkerton-Uri:
A 200 million population could support voluntary sterilization and survive, but for Native Americans it cannot be a preferred method of birth control. While other minorities might have a gene pool in Africa or Asia, Native Americans do not; when we are gone, that's it.
times, the battle over sterilization became localized and quite heated. In
response to Pinkerton-Uri's charges at the Claremore Hospital, physicians
threatened to close the facility. "In response," writes Torpy, "an unidentified
group of Native Americans pitched a tipi on the hospital lawn alongside the
American Indian Movement flag."
By the mid-to-late 1970s, the sterilization program was well known on the Native movement circuit. By 1974, Akwesasne Notes was carrying reports describing sterilizations, and Native American women's attempts to mobilize against them. As a Ph.D. student in Seattle who had become involved in Native American issues (beginning with fishing rights), I requested an airing of the sterilization program in The Nation, the magazine that, in 1977, had allowed me a forum to present the first nationally published account of Leonard Peltier's case. An editor at The Nation told me the magazine would publish the story only if I could supply a written statement from the IHS that genocide was its policy. No statement, the editor said, no story. I was unable to find such a tidy admission, although I could see a wave of sterilizations as I combined the GAO report's findings with case-study materials from my files.
By 1977, a class action suit had been initiated by three Montana Native American women. The names of the three Northern Cheyenne women who filed the class action suit were not released publicly out of fear that they would be condemned by other Cheyennes. The class-action suit never went to court, and never directly affected anyone other than the three claimants. Attorneys for the defendants approached the women's attorneys and offered a cash settlement on condition that the case remain sealed. The women accepted the settlement.
At about the same time, Marie Sanchez, the Northern Cheyennes' chief tribal judge, conducted her own informal poll, and found that at least 30 women she contacted had been sterilized between 1973 and 1976. It was Sanchez who found two fifteen year old girls who said that they had been told they were having their tonsils out, only to emerge from a local IHS hospital without their ovaries.
Torpy's account brings what became a general pattern down to a personal level:
Another woman who had complained to a physician about migraine headaches was told that her condition was a female problem, and was advised that a hysterectomy would alleviate the problem. Her headaches continued, however, until she was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
during 1977, the American Indian Policy review Commission found the IHS lacking
adequate policies, appropriations, delivery services, and oversight for
provision of health services to Native Americans. Even in 1977, the rate of
infant mortality on Indian reservations was three times that of the general
population in the United States; the tuberculosis rate was still eight times as
high. the average life span of a Native American living on a reservation was 47
years, compared with almost 71 years in the general population. The IHS seemed
to be short of personnel and equipment to treat many things, but the agency
always seemed to have enough doctors, nurses, equipment, and money to tie
fallopian tubes and remove ovaries.
By the late 1970s, sterilizations continued at some IHS hospitals despite protests and suits. Brightman visited Claremore's IHS facility for six months during late 1978 and early 1979, collecting records for six months, and found evidence of 81 sterilizations. Brightman later related his findings as part of a speech on the U.S. Capitol steps which was recorded and played for some of Claremore's nurses, who, according to Torpy, "validated that sterilizations were occurring and with greater frequency."
Many Native women looked at the battle against sterilization as part of a broader, older, struggle to retain their families in a culturally appropriate context. The battle against sterilizations brought back memories of having children taken from their homes, beginning with the establishment of Carlisle School in 1879, to face a gauntlet of forced assimilation in a factory model of education. In 1977, roughly a third of reservation children were still attending the same system of boarding schools that had become a principal part of the assimilative model a century earlier. In 1973, 33,672 Native American children lived in federal boarding schools rather than at home, according to statistics compiled by Torpy.
Many women also were reminded of the many Native children taken for foster care by non-Indians. In the middle 1970s, the proportion of Indian children placed in foster care in Western states (compared to the general population) ranged from 640 per cent, in Idaho, to 2,000 per cent, in North Dakota. This disparity was diminished (but not eliminated) by legislative measures beginning about 1980 which demanded that social workers appreciate Native ways of raising children instead of assuming that they were evidence of lack of parenting skills by Anglo-American, middle-class standards.
On many reservations today, Indian midwives or nurses advise women on whether sterilization is appropriate. The number of births to Indian women had risen to 45,871 in 1988, compared with 27,542 in 1975, according to census records cited in Torpy's thesis.
Even though the cruder abuses of the sterilization wave in the 1970s seem to have abated, "Even today," writes Torpy, "there remains a need for constant and close surveillance over physicians and health facilities and health facilities so that all poor women and women of color are allowed to make their own reproductive choices."
International sterilization anecdotes
While developing information about the impact of sterilization on Native American women in the United States, anecdotes popped up from time to time which indicate that sterilization is far from dead as a eugenic prescription for the elimination of Native populations in Latin America.
Christina Lamb reported in the London Sunday Telegraph September 13 that a politician in northeastern Brazil is using sterilization of a diminishing Native tribe to garner votes among non-Indian Brazilians who have taken much of (and want more of) their land.
At least eighty indigenous women of the Pataxuh-he band in the Brazilian state of Bahia have been sterilized by Ronald Lavigne, who is a medical doctor as well as a politician. Lavigne offers sterilization to women (who cannot get other types of birth control) every time he runs for office. Some women have complained after the fact that the finality of tube-tying was not explained to them.
Lamb reports that many of the operations were undertaken on women desperate to reduce the size of their families because many children in the area die of malnutrition.
"This is genocide," Lamb reported Roberto Liebgott, an activist with native peoples in Bahia, to have said. In some villages, every woman of child-bearing age has been sterilized, leading to the probable demise of entire peoples in a generation or two.
For Lavigne, sterilizations are paid back at the ballot box, where a study by the Brazilian Congress estimates that the candidate snags between seven and 25 extra votes for each operation from land owners, many of them recent immigrants, who fully understand their stake in reducing Native populations in the area. Within a few years, Pataxuh-he land holdings have been reduced from 50,000 to 20,000 hectares, according to Lamb. Lavigne is a leading figure in Brazil's right-wing Liberal Front, the party favored by new rich landowners in the Amazon Basin.
Blood also has been spilled over the immigrants insistence that the land's original inhabitants will not challenge their title. Last year, a local leader took his peoples' complaints to Brasilia, the federal capital. Galdino Jesus dos Santos was jumped by a gang of youths at a bus stop in the capital. They beat him, then dumped gasoline over his bruised, battered body and lit a match.
Far from Brasilia, in Omaha, Nebraska, medical personnel at local clinics caring for an influx of Mexican and other Latin American immigrants say that many women come to them complaining of having trouble getting pregnant. The Omaha care-givers are left to tell the women, many of whom are of Mexican Indian ancestry, that they have been sterilized or implanted with IUDs by Mexican doctors. Most of the women express surprise at this, to put it mildly, indicating that any form of consent they may have been given was not comprehended.
The flood of immigration to Omaha has been caused by a vibrant labor market (state unemployment is under 2 per cent) and economic hardship from the Rio Grande southward. The influx is so large that local Immigration and Naturalization Service officials estimate that a quarter of the workers in Nebraska's meat-packing plants are undocumented. The INS has set up a special program, "Operation Prime Beef," to catch them.
Compulsory sterilization (surgical procedure) programs sprouted up in many countries at the beginning of the 20th century, usually as part of a program of negative eugenics to prevent undesirable members of the population from reproducing. They generally specified that an institution or legal body could order that an individual be operated upon, for the purpose of preventing further procreation, against their will (and sometimes without their knowledge). Usually such programs advocated sterilization by means of vasectomy in males and salpingectomy or tubal ligation in females, as they were not operations which significantly affected sexual drive or the personality of the individuals operated upon (unlike, for example, castration). This increased the seemingly innocuous nature of the operations, adding a veneer of scientific objectivity. Plans for forced sterilization for the purposes of avoiding overpopulation are sometimes, but not usually, directly related to any eugenic intent. Please see population control for more information on this type of sterilization.
The first significant country to undertake compulsory sterilization programs for the purpose of eugenics was the United States of America. The principal targets of the American program were the mental retardation and the mental illness, but also targetted under many state laws were the deaf, the blind, the epilepsy, the physically deformed, and even orphans and the homeless. Some sterilizations also took place in prisons and other penal institutions, targeting criminality, but they were in the relative minority. The first state to introduce compulsory sterilization legislation was Pennsylvania, in 1905, but it was vetoed by the governor. Indiana became the first state to enact sterilization legislation in 1907 followed closely by Washington and California in 1909. Sterilization rates across the country were relatively low until the 1927 Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell which legitimized the forced sterilization of patients at a Virginia home for the mental retardation. The number of sterilizations performed per year increased until another Supreme Court case, Skinner v. Oklahoma, complicated the legal situation by ruling against punitive sterilization in 1942. After World War II, public opinion towards eugenics and sterilization programs became more negative in the light of the connection with the genocide policies of Nazi Germany, though sterilizations continued in a few states until the early 1960s. Some states continued to have sterilization laws on the books for much longer after that, though they were rarely if ever used. In the end, over 64,000 individuals were sterilized under state compulsory sterilization programs in the United States, with California leading the pack, itself responsible for over a third of all sterilization operations. Information about the California sterilization program was produced into book form and widely disseminated by eugenicists E.S. Gosney and Paul B. Popenoe, which was said by the government of Adolf Hitler to be of key importance in proving that large-scale compulsory sterilization programs were feasible. In recent years, the governors of many states have made public apologies for their past programs. None have offered to compensate those sterilized, however, citing that few are likely still living (and by definition would have no affected offspring) and that inadequate records remain by which to verify them.
The most infamous sterilization program of the 20th century took place under the most infamous regime of the 20th century: the Third Reich. One of the first acts by Adolf Hitler after achieving total control over the Germany state was to pass the Gesetz zur Verh?erbkranken Nachwuchses (The Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring) in July 1933. The law was signed in by Hitler himself, and over 200 eugenic courts were created specifically as a result of the law. Under the German law, any doctor in the Reich was required to report patients of theirs who were mentally retarded, mentally ill (including schizophrenia and manic depression), epilepsy, blindness, deafness, or physically deformed, and a steep monetary penalty was imposed for any patients who were not properly reported. Individuals suffering from alcoholism or Huntingtons disease could also be sterilized. The individuals case was then presented in front of a court of Nazi officials and public health officers who would review their medical records, take testimony from friends and colleagues, and eventually decide whether or not to order a sterilization operation performed on the individual, using force if necessary. By the end of World War II, over 400,000 individuals were sterilized under the German law and its revisions, most within its first four years of being enacted. When the issue of compulsory sterilization was brought up at the Nuremberg trials after the war, many Nazis defended their actions on the matter by indicating that it was the United States itself from whom they had taken inspiration.
Dozens of countries around the world, especially in Europe, also had similar sterilization programs, though very few had rates as high as the United States, much less Germany. In recent years it has come out that Sweden in particular had a strong sterilization program, sterilizing around 62,000 individuals over a period of 40 years. Other countries with notably active sterilization programs include Canada, Australia, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Switzerland, Iceland, and some countries in Latin America (including Panama and Puerto Rico).
In Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitlers T-4 Euthanasia Program was established in order to maintain the supposed purity (eugenics) of the so-called Aryan race by systematically killing children and adults born with physical deformities or suffering from mental illness. The name T-4 comes from the address of the office, Tiergartenstrasse 4 in Berlin. The operation was put by Hitler under the control of the Chief of the State Chancellery Philip Bouhler and Doctor of Medicine Karl Brandt. Defective children were removed from their families and taken to hospitals, where the exterminations were carried out at the Hartheim and Hadamar killing centres. The program was expanded to include adults to prevent any deficient member of the German Master race from breeding so they could not pass on their inferiority. One of the most important and well-known books about the Nazi Euthanasia action was written by Ernst Klee: Euthanasie im NS-Staat ? Die Vernichtung lebensunwerten Lebens. Klee describes the extermination hospitals like Grafeneck or Hartheim, where the first gas chambers were built, before the Holocaust, and where mostly adult victims were suffocated with carbon monoxide. Klee describes further the killing of crippled children by doctors with lethal injections and the starvation of patients marked for extermination. Klee describes as well the resistance from the churches and the relatives of the victims, which led to a slowdown and greater secrecy of the operation, but did not stop it. The operation was conducted still more covertly after August 1941, when 70,000 people had already died in the gas chambers of Grafeneck, Hartheim, Hadamar, Bernburg, Brandenburg and Sonnenstein. By that time every third inmate of a psychiatric institution in Germany had already died, either by being actively killed or by starvation, leading to about 93,000 free beds at the end of 1941, to use the Nazi terminology. On August 18, 1941, Hitler ordered a temporary halt to T-4. Graduates of the Aktion T4 program were then transferred to the concentration camps, where they continued in their trade. Euthanasia did not end in 1941, however, it still took place in hospitals around Germany and Austria, and crept East into a few of the occupied territories. An estimated 200,000 people died under the auspices of the T-4 program. As Klee notes, most of the persons responsible for carrying out the T-4 Euthanasia Program became active in the Holocaust as well, developing gas chamber technology and even helping to build death camps at Belzec, Treblinka or Sobib⠩n Operation Reinhard. Aside from the well-known Auschwitz concentration camp these were the main centers of extermination by gas for millions of people. Along with the euthanasia program, the Nazi regime also targeted the disabled through its compulsory sterilization program.

Alberta passes the Sexual Sterilization Act. It provides for the forced sterilization of inmates in mental hospitals.
Similar laws are enacted in other provinces, such as British Columbia.

Sterilization of the "feeble-minded" is supported by leading women's rights figures such as Emily Murphy and Nellie McClung.
The Sanger Paradox- the Myth of Choice
The founder of Planned Parenthood in her own words
"The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring... represents the most humane act of mankind."
Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1, Chapter 10
"We prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble-minded."
The Pivot of Civilization Margaret Sanger, Brentano's Press, NY, 1922, p. 263
"Authorities tell us that 75% of the school-children are defective. This means that no less than fifteen million schoolchildren, out of 22,000,000 in the United States, are physically or mentally below par.
Planned Parenthood was known as the American Birth Control League until 1942. (Backlash against the eugenics movement which the ABCL espoused, and its ties to Nazis here and abroad compelled the name change.) That said, now for some little known facts regarding Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and her stated aims from its conception...
The eugenics movement was a pseudo-science which advocated the forced sterilization of "feeble-minded" U.S. citizens in hopes of insuring racial purity; it was a doomed and tragic attempt to create what Sanger believed would be "a race of thoroughbreds." Eugenics as a "science" fell apart with the discovery of DNA and new insights on chromosomes and genetic mutation. But thought the sterilization program which Sanger and supporters advocated most adversely affected poor whites and minorities, it was also aimed at all Americans of every color and creed who didn't fit into an insanely narrow and scientifically invalid notion of who was fit to conceive. This was only 1 in 4 Americans, in Sanger's most generous estimates.
Confronted with these shocking truths about the menace of feeble-mindedness to the race, a menace acute because of the unceasing and unrestrained fertility of such defectives, we are apt to become the victims of a 'wild panic for instant action.' There is no occasion for hysterical, ill-considered action, specialists tell us. They direct our attention to another phase of the problem, that of the so-called 'good feeble-minded.' We are informed that imbecility, in itself, is not synonymous with badness. If it is fostered in a 'suitable environment,' it may express itself in terms of good citizenship and useful occupation. It may thus be transmuted into a docile, tractable, and peaceable element of the community. The moron and the feeble-minded, thus protected, so we are assured, may even marry some brighter member of the community, and thus lessen the chances of procreating another generation of imbeciles. We read further that some of our doctors believe that in our social scale, there is a place for the good feeble-minded.
"In such a reckless and thoughtless differentiation between the 'bad' and the 'good' feeble-minded, we find new evidence of the conventional middle-class bias that also finds ___expression among some of the eugenists. We do not object to feeble-mindedness simply because it leads to immorality and criminality; nor can we approve of it when it expresses itself in docility, submissiveness and obedience. We object because both are burdens and dangers to the intelligence of the community"

The Philippians version of Planned Parenthood is the Family Family Act.
In the Buck vs. Bell decision of May 2, 1927, the United States Supreme Court upheld a Virginia statute that provided for the eugenic sterilization for people considered genetically unfit. The Court's decision, delivered by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., included the infamous phrase "Three generations of imbeciles are enough." Upholding Virginia's sterilization statute provided the green light for similar laws in 30 states, under which an estimated 65,000 Americans were sterilized without their own consent or that of a family member.
Although Indiana passed the first eugenic sterilization statute in 1907, this and other early laws were legally flawed and did not meet the challenge of state court tests. To remedy this situation, Harry Laughlin of the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) at Cold Spring Harbor designed a model eugenic law that was reviewed by legal experts. The Virginia statute of 1924 was closely based on this model.
The plaintiff of the case, Carrie Buck, and her mother Emma, had been committed to the Virginia Colony for Epileptics and Feeble Minded in Lynchburg, Virginia. Carrie and Emma were both judged to be "feebleminded" and promiscuous, primarily because they had both had borne children out of wedlock. Carrie's child, Vivian, was judged to be "feebleminded" at seven months of age. Hence, three generations of "imbeciles" became the "perfect" family for Virginia officials to use as a test case in favor of the eugenic sterilization law enacted in 1924.
On the eve of the Virginia legal contest, the ERO dispatched its field worker, Dr. Arthur Estabrook, to provide expert testimony. After some cursory examination, Estabrook testified that the seven month old Vivian "showed backwardness." The Superintendent of the Virginia Colony, Dr. Albert Priddy, testified that members of the Buck family "belong to the shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of anti-social whites of the South." Upon reviewing the case, the Supreme Court concurred "that Carrie Buck is the probable potential parent of socially inadequate offspring, likewise afflicted, that she may be sexually sterilized without detriment to her general health and that her welfare and that of society will be promoted by her sterilization"
Buck vs. Bell was flawed in many ways. "Feeblemindeness" is no longer used in medical terminology; it was clearly a catch-all term that had virtually no clinical meaning. It is impossible to judge whether or not Carrie was "feebleminded" by the standards of her time, but she was not patently promiscuous. According to Carrie, Vivian's conception was the result of Carrie's rape by the nephew of her foster parents. She, probably like many unwed mothers of that time, was institutionalized to prevent further shame to the family. Just as clearly, Vivian was no imbecile. Vivian's first grade report card from the Venable School in Charlottesville showed that this daughter of a supposed social degenerate got straight "As" in deportment (conduct) and even made the honor role in April, 1931. She died a year later of complications following a bout of the measles.
Although in 1942 the Supreme Court struck down a law allowing the involuntary sterilization of criminals, it never reversed the general concept of eugenic sterilization. In 2001, the Virginia General Assembly acknowledged that the sterilization law was based on faulty science and expressed its "profound regret over the Commonwealth's role in the eugenics movement in this country and over the damage done in the name of eugenics." On May 2, 2002 a marker was erected to honor Carrie Buck in her hometown of Charlottesville.
