In 2014, America faces the gravest threat to civil rights in the mental health area in decades.

In a dire blow to basic human dignity, congress threatens to pass the Murphy Bill, providing a massive funding boost for brutal forced injections of psychiatric drugs against society’s most distressed and overwhelmed people. This bill expands so called ‘outpatient commitment’, the government practice of forcibly drugging people in their own homes. People in crisis are forced to live in terror of being rounded up out of their own homes, and forcibly drugged by an invasive and violent mental health system founded on Big Psychiatry / Big Pharma dogma about sham ‘chemical imbalances’. In Colorado, they are trying to add ‘resource mismanagement’ to the commitment laws, this means that if state psychiatry believes you are mismanaging your credit cards, they can use this as yet another justification to terrorize people with forced government needles full of brain altering drugs. In Boston, the Justina Pelletier case continues to capture the public’s attention. Justina, an innocent teenager, has been ripped away from her family and forced into psychiatric ‘care’, her case shows once and for all how much danger forced psychiatry poses to the rights of every parent, and of every citizen in the land. http://justiceforjustina.com; #FreeJustina
