Trump's new forced psychiatric drugging czar Ellie McCance-Katz doesn't believe you should have the right to own your own body.

(Published: May 05, 2017 05:20 AM)
Grab 'em by the frontal lobes: MindFreedom founder David Oaks on President Trump's new forced drugging czar, Ellie McCance-Katz, a proponent of the heinous human rights abuse of state-sanctioned brain rape, forced drugging. Trump's new forced drugging czar McCance-Katz, seeks to radically expand the terrifying and inhuman practice of rounding up and forcibly drugging American citizens long-term in the community... motivated by the pseudoscientific and hate-filled belief that without even performing any objective test on a citizen's brain, a citizen should lose their right to own their own brain and become a second class citizen, because Trump's big government forced drugging policy trumps your right to choose.

Lauren Tenney, psychiatric survivor activist from New York State

First involuntarily institutionalized, at 15, Lauren Tenney is a survivor of psychiatry. She has been involved with the user and survivor movement since 1992. Her goal is to help stop forced psychiatric procedures, detainment, and confinement, human rights violations, psychiatric abuse and torture. Of particular concern are the elimination of forced electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) on people of all ages, but particularly children and senior citizens, forced drugging, restraints, seclusion, behavioral interventions, and coercion of any kind. Lauren, a Mad-Activist/ Artist/ Author/ Academic/ Adjunct Professor is coordinating The Opal Project, an outcome of participatory action research she coordinated for field research in the PhD program in Environmental Psychology at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her dissertation topic is: "The Institutionalized "Community." She became involved with WE THE PEOPLE when the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights and MindFreedom International needed someone on the ground in Brooklyn, New York to coordinate a response where Esmin Green was murdered-by-neglect. She now lives in Albany, NY with her service dog-in-training and cat. For more info: www.TheOpalProject.org and www.etrash.tv
