Bill to Curb Drugs In Kids Passes

Schools wouldn’t be able to deny enrollment, services or participation in activities to children that refuse to take mood-altering drugs to treat mental disorders under a bill passed unanimously Thursday by the House and sent to Gov. Jeb Bush.

Consumer Alert: Scientology

“Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill… (Scientology is) the world’s largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy.”
– Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, quoted at What judges have to say about Scientology

Before schools refer students for psychological evaluations, parents would have to be informed that behavior problems could be the result of physical conditions. They also must be told that they might want to consult a medical doctor, they can decline the evaluation and results may become part of the student’s school record.

Actresses Kirstie Alley and Kelly Preston last month testified in support of the bill (HB 209), which is supported by the Church of Scientology.
