Think They Don’t Electroshock People Anymore? Think Again–Even toddlers and pregnant women are being shocked

by Dr. John Breeding, author of The Wildest Colts Make the Best Horses.

Ask the average person about the use of electroshock treatment in today’s society and 9 out of 10 will respond, "They still shock people?"

They do. It's estimated that more than 100,000 Americans are electroshocked each year; half are 60 and older, and two-thirds are women. In Australia, it was recently revealed that psychiatrists had electroshocked 55 toddlers age four and younger. In the UK, three year olds have been brutalized with it. And one of the country's leading mental health "patients' rights" groups—the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI)—recently endorsed the use of electroshock on pregnant women. One would wonder why a patients' rights group would endorse such an obviously harmful procedure if not for the fact that the group has recently been exposed as a major front for the psycho/pharmaceutical industry.
