Were You Drugged?
October 29, 2005 permalink
Canada Court Watch is soliciting reports from former foster children who were drugged while in "care".
(Oct 26, 2005) Court Watch is gathering information relative to a specific investigative report which will deal with the subject of children being needlessly drugged while in foster/group home care. For this specific project we are interested in hearing from persons who are now above the age of 18, who were once in the care of CAS while under the age of 18, and while in CAS care were forced to take drugs such as Ritalin, Risperdol or other forms of medication. We would especially like to hear from those who had to be placed on a drug reduction program as a result of being given medication while in the care of the CAS or from those who believe that they now suffer long term physical or mental health effects as a result of having medication prescribed to them while in care of a CAS agency. Candidates must be willing to be interviewed professionally on videotape and be willing to go public with their information. A class action lawsuit against the CAS agencies, workers and the medical professionals involved in prescribing the medication will be discussed with those who involve themselves in this project. If you believe that you meet the requirements above then contact Court Watch at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us by phone at (416) 410-4115. If you are under 18 years of age, currently under CAS care or supervision and feel that medication is being forced upon you, we would also like to hear from you in relation to other investigations we are conducting into the abuse of children by CAS agencies and workers.
