The corporate drug pushers are now working on congress to require depressed pregnant women to take SSRI's. As my mother would say, "they have some gall".
Here's the article (thanks, Craig): http://www.naturalnews.com/022789.html

(NaturalNews) A new law being considered in the U.S. Congress would attempt to prevent postpartum depression in new moms by drugging them with SSRI antidepressant drugs while they're still pregnant. This legislation is being aggressively pushed by pro-pharma front groups in an effort to expand the customer base for SSRI drugs by targeting pregnant women as new "customers" for the chemicals. It's an example of the latest insanity from Big Pharma, whose drugs are already killing over 100,000 Americans each year while inciting violence and suicides in teens. Every single shooting massacre we've seen in the last ten years has been carried out by a person taking SSRI antidepressant drugs. The mainstream media pays no attention to this link, and the FDA ignores the reports in order to keep these drugs on the market.

SSRI drugs have never been approved for use on newborns, yet this new MOTHERS Act will effectively drug unborn babies and newborns with drugs like Prozac. This will certainly have an impact on their developing brains, and the bulk of the research available today shows that the impact will be negative. Will these children be more prone to violent thoughts and behavior? Will they contemplate suicide at younger ages? And what will be the impact of the drugs on the mother?

For one mother who was drugged with antidepressants -- Amy Philo -- the drugs caused her to experience thoughts of violence against her own newborn babies. After taking antidepressants prescribed by her doctor, she had visions of killing them (and herself). Upon returning to her doctor, Amy was told to increase the dosage! Eventually, Amy realized the drugs were wrecking her own brain chemistry, and she stopped taking the pills entirely, causing the thoughts of violence and suicide to subside.

Oh, for Fuck Sake. If they'd just teach them proper nutrition, many of them probably wouldn't even get postpartum depression.

Instead they'd rather have them eating Froot Loops and taking Prozac... it makes money for them.

Re: The Fruit Loop Diet
Yeah... but it is FrOOt Loops. No "fruit" about it. ;-)

I went to a baby shower once where one of the games was to feel and smell inside a folded diaper to figure out what was in there. They did things like mac&cheese, cat food and other yukky stuff. The one nobody could figure out? The wet froot loops. They stunk like shit and had the weirdest texture when wet, sort of spongy and squishy.

Re: The Froot Loop Diaper
Sounds utterly disgusting.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot...

Maybe they should just drink more tap water. It's pre-dosed!
