ADAPT goes to FDA to end electroshock torture


"The Massachusetts-based Judge Rotenberg Center, named for a judge who greenlit the practice in one of the first battles with disability rights groups and concerned government officials, has claimed that the practice is relatively painless and is only used as a last resort when there is imminent danger.

According to advocates, the school is deceiving everyone. Former students and teachers who left because they disagreed with the practice have said in sworn testimony that the school uses the shocks for any random reason. ADAPT and many other organizations, including the United Nations, have called the practice torture."

Personally, I think it's past time the FDA got on this. They've been stalling to appease "desperate" parents for too long. Shut it down and direct state child protective agencies to sic social workers on any parents who squawk about it. Anyone who is cool with electroshocking another person's kid for twitching wrong is cool with doing anything to their kid.
