    The Mothers Act allows for the drugging of unborn children that can and will result in spontaneous abortions. These drugs are dangerous and mind altering. Boys as young as 13yrs have been growing milk producing breasts as a result of antispsychotics. Children as young as 7yrs have committed suicide. These drugs kill and maime and never should be allowed on newborns or Mothers.
    This bill has got to be banned as well as the drugs.
    Never should it be approved.
    As an ex teacher, I have seen the horrors these drugs do to people. Children are given them like candy and the test scores prove they are zombiefied. No one deserves to be subdued into a mental deficiency like that.

    just another way of government getting bigger and committing murder!!!!

    I can’t wait for the ‘Bachelor’s Act’

    This is stupid. Is that supposing that having a baby puts you at sudden risk? When drugs like Prozac and others cause mothers to become suicidal and manic? So they can force a drug on me because of my right to a child? That’s almost along the lines of a forced abortion. I might as well not have a kid for fear of being labeled mentally insane.

    This is sexism, it has nothing to do with the crappy drugs. Or ‘Brave New World’ here we come.

    I want to know why the National Organized women have remain silent when
    Gov. Palin and Carrie Prejean have been sooo violently attacked over and over and what about the piece that was put in the Playboy Mag about conservative women. Where are you all?????? We are all women black white green, no matter our religions or our political preferences. Where are you ? Why the Silence?

  5. I am an American and I lived in Iceland 1998-2007. In 2004, at 38, I became unexpectedly pregnant. In Iceland they said a “shrink student” to your bedside shortly after you give birth to screen you. The country has posters everywhere from their national medical association showing a woman holding her child saying “I love my child” and then suggests you see your doctor. Before, during and after the pregnancy I experienced Tachycardia (which runs in my family). Instead of giving me help for a cardiac condition, I was given Seroxat (European name) and Effexor (European name). These drugs made the Tachycardia unbearable and I believe that if I had stayed on either of these drugs 1 day longer than I did, then I would not be here writing this. I believe the drugs nearly killed me with what they did to my cardiac condition. I am on actual heart medication now. What happens in Iceland is frightening and I am scared of this spreading. In Iceland doctors are paid by the governement for 2 weeks of “pharmaceutical classes” on new drugs – i.e. medical cruises and conferences. I really thought the US was a better place, obviously I was wrong.

  8. Ceecee says:

    The organized mainstream feminists are silent about this because they are so fiercely pro-abortion. Anything that makes pregnancy look like a disease or that brings down society’s punishment for having a baby will help sell more abortions. To the hard core pro-aborts, this is something that, if they cannot openly advocate it, at least they will not protest it.

    But you better believe that the pregnant girl being “counseled” in an abortion clinic will be told about these drugs, their dangers, and left with the feeling she’ll have no choice but to take them, and blow her mind, if she has the baby. It will be one more thing used to scare hesitant girls into abortions that they really dont’t want.

    Some of these drugs are not only connected to suicide, but also to violent thoughts about the baby. Isn’t that special. If women can’t be manipulated into killing their babies before birth, don’t worry, we can use drugs to manipulate them into killing their babies after birth.

    LIsten girls, doctors can prescribe all the crap they want to you. But in the privacy of your own home, who’s going to force you to take it?
