• New Mexico Law Prohibits Forced Psychiatric Drugging of Children - First Such Law in the U.S.

    I have four sons. My second son was not reaching normal, age appropriate, developmental milestones. He was withdrawn and self abusive and violent towards adults. At 2.5 years of age I took him to see a pediatrician and he wanted to put him on a trial of Ritalin. I was quite certain my son was autistic and I absolutely refused to use Ritalin. He is now 29 years of age and is a wonderful, loving son (never used med's).. Drugs are the cause of a great deal of heartache in our society and it isn't just the illegal ones!!! NO ONE should have the legal right to force us to drug OUR children!
