Watch out Moms!!!

June 26, 2008

Frightening legislation is moving through Congress.  Already approved by the House of Representatives “The Mother’s Act” ( HR20/S. 1375) provides for mental health screening for every mother.  Can you imagine, pregnant women will be “educated” about the new mental illness of being susceptible to postpartum depression.  The treatment is of course prescription drugs, there is no alternative treatment discussed, just the big pharma answer to life’s difficulties, more of their products, dangerous mind altering prescription drugs.  The FDA documented drugs for depression cause mania, psychosis, hallucinations and suicidal ideation.  People on these drugs have committed horrendous acts of violence against others.

Would it be good for your business if you could screen your fellow citizens,  mandated by the federal government, to find out if they would qualify to be offered your company’s latest piece of equipment or service?  What subjective questions could you develop to check on their status?   Just think, with every doctor’s visit in this country you could get the patient screened to see if they should buy your products. There is the bonus that these doctors are unpaid as marketing representatives, they just do that for you in the course of every patient visit.  This legislation is that crazy, all under the guise of educating moms about depression.  Why not screen everyone for mental illness at every doctor visit, you have indigestion but you get asked questions about depression, make sense?

Moms know the feeling of “empty” after months of carry a baby, it is a distinct sensation and although they have a lovely baby to care for there are those moments when you feel like something is missing, it is.  It is a momentary problem in life.  You could easily call it depression.  Every one of us feels overwhelmed in some way at the prospect of living up to the responsibility that comes with a family.  Soon all the hormone fluctuations normalize and you start feeling like yourself again.  There is a very wide range of moods, aches and pains, and real physical problems that come with having children.  There are normal hormonal imbalances that do not require medical care or drugs.   Taken to the extreme why have kids at all if you become an instant psyche case?

We also need to screen the dads in this picture, I can imagine it must be pretty hard on them, they must feel the panic of a new mouth to feed and all the extra work they need to do to help their wife and newborn.  Think of all the rest they miss with all the extra runs to the store for every little thing, exhausting.  A real potential mental case.  Prescription drugs to numb the mind would be just the thing.

This is so horrifying I am totally shocked the Congress could have been so taken in as to pass this legislation.  The drug company lobby sure is effective.  We need to take our bodies and our lives back and do something to kill this legislation before the Senate votes on it, it is in committee this week and could come out for a vote very soon.  Please contact The Citizens Commission on Human Rights, and inform yourself and then do something, please.  All moms and daughters deserve to conduct their lives without their doctors being made to question them about their social and personal lives.    Coleen Maulfair

    There are a few documents I posted on my website that can help everyone trying to contact the senate:

    A fax:

    A list of phone / fax numbers for all 100 senators:

    A letter I sent that has some important data in the addendum for everyone to read and consider mentioning to the aides when you call:

    Also see:

    Please take action immediately, even on Sunday. This was supposed to be voted on on Saturday July 26, but it could be tomorrow (Sunday the 27th) or the next day. If we could kill this thing NOW we might be able to buy some time until the next session. Congress needs to be re-educated. Ethics investigations need to be initiated for anyone who cosponsors the legislation. We need to reform the drug companies / lobbyists system and somehow prevent them from being allowed to accomplish so much mass murder by federal mandate.

    Amy, I reposted your information for others to see, we do need to work on the legislative process that permits such idiosy. Thanks for all you are doing. The possiblility of broad drugging of mothers and children reminds me of pre WW2 Germany; they also saw mental illness in an entire class of people leading wonderful full lives. Coleen Maulfair
