“Fight For Kids” is a campaign launched by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit public benefit organization that has been the most effective international group to help achieve legislative protections against abusive psychiatric treatment and drugging of children. For example, it was the first to achieve legislation in the U.S. that banned the use of electroshock treatment and psychosurgery on children. It recently helped achieve a federal law prohibiting children from being forced onto psychiatric drugs as a requisite for their education in the U.S. Eight U.S. states have passed similar laws that ensure parents have the right to informed consent regarding psychiatric testing of children in schools.
The purpose of the Fight For Kids campaign is: To safeguard the health and future of children and ensure parents are given the right to “full informed consent” regarding their child’s needs by:
CCHR’s Fight For Kids campaign was created to educate parents worldwide on the facts about today’s widespread practice of labeling children mentally ill and drugging them with powerful psychiatric drugs. Armed in this way, loving parents will be able to prevail in the face of the enormous “drug children now” pressures so entrenched in society today.
With 20 million children worldwide being prescribed stimulants, anti-psychotics and other mind-altering drugs, urgent action is needed. This includes a massive international public awareness campaign that will send millions of information booklets and documentaries on DVD to parents, teachers associations and legislators. This also includes an advertising campaign that can reach millions more people who need this information and who can then access CCHR’s website to be given free information about parental rights.
CCHR was established in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and renowned Professor of Psychiatry Dr. Thomas Szasz to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights and to clean up the field of mental healing. It is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. It has more than 180 Commissioners (board of advisors), which include doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, attorneys, human and civil rights activists, celebrities and parents who all believe children have the right to grow up drug-free.
CCHR’s work is in accordance with the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular the following precepts:
WARNING: No one should stop taking any psychiatric drug without advice and assistance by a competent non-psychiatric medical doctor.
