I don't think mothers with the 'baby blues' are the mentally ill ones in this story.

Branding Pregnancy as Mental Illness: Immediate Consumer Action Needed to Stop Mothers Act
by Byron Richards

The Mothers Act is pending legislation that will indoctrinate hundreds of thousands of mothers into taking dangerous psych drugs. It is a great example of how the Big Pharma lobby controls Congress to the detriment of health, as well as needlessly and dramatically inflating the costs of our health care system for everyone. Like any piece of legislation it purports to address a troubling issue – in this case the mood distress of mothers following birth known as postpartum depression. It is true that 10% - 15% of women need some assistance in dealing with this topic – but the majority of them sure don't need it from Big Pharma. That is the Big Lie.

The Mothers Act (S. 1375: Mom's Opportunity to Access Health, Education, Research, and Support for Postpartum Depression Act) (( )) has the net affect of reclassifying the natural process of pregnancy and birth as a mental disorder that requires the use of unproven and extremely dangerous psychotropic medications (which can also easily harm the child). Urgent consumer action (see below) is needed to stop this atrocity, as the Senate could now vote any day.

funny you should mention that

i've spent a lot of time over the past week reading about vaccines.
basically big pharma buys off the scientists and sits on the board that writes the policy that becomes the law that requires every toddler in the land to get stabbed with some relatively untested live virus.
funny how similar the railroading of the truth is whether it's health and medicine or 9/11 and the war on terror.
