The MOTHERS Act: Thalidomide Revisited?
Date:5/23/2008

Reports began appearing from Europe of the growing numbers of babies born with flipper-like limbs, with digits sprouting directly from hips and shoulders -- a condition called phocomelia. In November, 1961, Widukind Lenz, a German pediatrician, blamed thalidomide. He determined that half the mothers with deformed children had taken thalidomide in the first trimester of pregnancy. Before it was over, more than 10,000 such children in 46 countries had been born. But in the U.S., thanks to Kelsey and the FDA, thalidomide never made it to market and just 17 American children were born with thalidomide-induced phocomelia.

However, the FDA no longer protects us -- the public. They have become an arm of the pharmaceutical industry and do their bidding exclusively. They facilitate the victimization that is the psychiatric "diagnosis" and drugging of 20% of US school children and 50-75% of those in foster care. Should The MOTHERS Act be passed by the Senate, it will guarantee that more mothers-to-be, their unborn, still-developing, babies, and more nursing mothers and their nursing infants, will join the ranks of the psychiatrically drugged.
