Help Protect the Sanity of Children sign now

In light of recent evidences uncovered by the inquiry by Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa an American Congressional investigation into Joseph Biederman, a world-renowned Harvard child psychiatrist whose work has helped fuel an explosion in the use of powerful anti-psychotic medicines in children this petition to the UN Human Rights Council is being mandated.

Dr. Biederman is the world's most prominent advocate of diagnosing bipolar disorder in even the youngest children and of using anti-psychotic medicines to treat the disease.

The inquiry revealed that much of his work has been underwritten by drug makers for whom he privately consults. Beiderman's work helped to fuel a controversial 40-fold increase from 1994 to 2003 in the diagnosis of pediatric bipolar disorder.

The inquiry revealed last year that Dr. Biederman earned at least $1.6 million in consulting fees from drug makers from 2000 to 2007 but failed to report all but about $200,000 of this income to university officials, according to information given Congressional investigators.

Court documents dating over several years that Dr. Biederman wants sealed show that he told the drug giant Johnson & Johnson that planned studies of its medicines in children would yield results benefiting the company.

Dr. Biederman was director of the Johnson & Johnson Center for Pediatric Psychopathology Research at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston and has been the spearhead of guidelines for treating ADHD world wide which has seen Ritalin sales explode world wide.

In addition to this, evidences uncovering that 7 of the 10 people in-charge of setting the ADHD guidelines had financial links back to the ADHD drug makers putting profits before the sanity and well being of millions of children--world wide.

It is clear from this evidence that the rights of children are seriously at risk when such a close collusion and working relationship exists between the the drug makers and that of the medical profession; who are entrusted to help and succor their patients with standard care, unbiased and uncorrupted in their duty and observance of the Hippocratic Oath.

The following articles taken from The Convention on the Rights of the Child are being violated with the wide and rampant psychotropic prescriptions and diagnoses of children all in the name of profits; attributing to such physical and mental abuses within children; in their families and at their schools the likes which the world has never seen before.

Article 3

1. In all actions concerning children, whether undertaken by public or private social welfare institutions, courts of law, administrative authorities or legislative bodies, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.

2. States Parties undertake to ensure the child such protection and care as is necessary for his or her well-being, taking into account the rights and duties of his or her parents, legal guardians, or other individuals legally responsible for him or her, and, to this end, shall take all appropriate legislative and administrative measures.

3. States Parties shall ensure that the institutions, services and facilities responsible for the care or protection of children shall conform with the standards established by competent authorities, particularly in the areas of safety, health, in the number and suitability of their staff, as well as competent supervision.

Article 6

1. States Parties recognize that every child has the inherent right to life.

2. States Parties shall ensure to the maximum extent possible the survival and development of the child.

Article 19

1. States Parties shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s) or any other person who has the care of the child.

Article 24

1. States Parties recognize the right of the child to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health and to facilities for the treatment of illness and rehabilitation of health. States Parties shall strive to ensure that no child is deprived of his or her right of access to such health care services.

4. States Parties undertake to promote and encourage international co-operation with a view to achieving progressively the full realization of the right recognized in the present article. In this regard, particular account shall be taken of the needs of developing countries.

Article 27

1. States Parties recognize the right of every child to a standard of living adequate for the child's physical, mental, spiritual, moral and social development.

And in particular the following article in its fullest sense:

Article 33

States Parties shall take all appropriate measures, including legislative, administrative, social and educational measures, to protect children from the illicit use of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances as defined in the relevant international treaties, and to prevent the use of children in the illicit production and trafficking of such substances.

We the undersign, request that the UN Human Rights Council embrace this matter into its arms for the sake of all Children world wide before millions more are recklessly placed on unwarranted anti-psychotic mind bending drugs all in the name of profits and money.

As the evidences have clearly shown that national authorities and the inherent "checks and balances" are failing in their duties and responsibilities in seeing that the psychotropic drugs recommended, prescribed and used to treat children are factually safe and are being done so, in the best interests of the child and their physical and mental well-being.

That such an investigation should follow the money trail uncovering all those psychiatrists and other professionals who have been involved in the process of producing the rampant drug culture which we are faced with today, seeing many of tomorrows future leaders being addicted to some form of psychotropic drug or drugs--before reaching high school.

While others as young as seven years old have committed suicide after being prescribed such "medications" leaving behind them a trail of emotional devastation and destruction for their parents, their brothers and sisters
and all others to pick-up while the company's cash register HEAVILY "Ka-Chings" as it exceeds last profits.

Millions of children world wide desperately need the UN Human Rights Council to use its power and authority to help guarantee that they all have a future replete with life, joy and happiness.

Investigate the matter now before many more lives and families are ruined.
