Trump's new forced psychiatric drugging czar Ellie McCance-Katz doesn't believe you should have the right to own your own body.

Grab 'em by the frontal lobes: MindFreedom founder David Oaks on President Trump's new forced drugging czar, Ellie McCance-Katz, a proponent of the heinous human rights abuse of state-sanctioned brain rape, forced drugging. Trump's new forced drugging czar McCance-Katz, seeks to radically expand the terrifying and inhuman practice of rounding up and forcibly drugging American citizens long-term in the community... motivated by the pseudoscientific and hate-filled belief that without even performing any objective test on a citizen's brain, a citizen should lose their right to own their own brain and become a second class citizen, because Trump's big government forced drugging policy trumps your right to choose.

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at madinamerica.com, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'" (See 'Related Content' links below for link to Mad In America web site where Laura's blogs.)
