|3 FOIA Requests Reveal Shock Treatment Used on Veterans and Their Fetuses|
Most disturbing, the draft data released shows that only 2 or more shock treatments were counted.
We have no idea of how many vets were shocked once.
Even more problematic, guidance on the use of shock treatment was released, and this included using shock treatment as a first line treatment for women who were pregnant.
That is electricity shot through her brain, general anesthesia, muscle relaxers, and pain killers, and not eating for long periods of time before the brain-damaging procedure, multiple times a week.

You can hear more on the Talk with Tenney episode, FOIA: Evidence of VMAs Electroshocking Veterans:
Right now, the FDA is trying to say that shock treatment is 'safe enough' for people experiencing a "depressive episode" as part of "major depressive disorder" or "bipolar disorder" that is "treatment-resistant" or "requires rapid response".
Please join our efforts to stop the FDA from being able to do this.
