Big Brother Watch: Screening Pregnancies

My not so wonderful home state of Illinois launches a new program for the mandatory mental health screening of pregnant women & their children here's the article
I think we all need to face the reality of the fact that we are letting our children's & our own mental & physical states be dictated by our government & corporate institutions.
If you have not read Aldous Huxley's Brave New World i highly suggest you do so. matter of fact, get the version that includes BNW revisited.
more later...it was a long weekend.

  1. Reading the actual law makes it appear to be screening before a child with Medicaid can be placed into an in-patient hospital for psychiatric purposes. I didn't really get from reading the law that "they" were going to test all pregnant women and children. Although the boundaries aren't really set in place that "they" can't.

    Your thoughts?

  2. it's not the job of the state to determine something as subjective as mental health. considering the major evil that is the current mass behavioral modification thru the use of pharmaceuticals, i'd say we absolutely must be wary of things like this.
    we're going to see some massive lawsuits against the makers of these drugs in the next few years, as they are being proven to cause mental illness including mild schizophrenia, violent tendencies, disconnection from the waking state...
