Here's something that might surprise you: electroshock therapy is being used as a form of behavior control for special needs children. Ask President Obama to immediately outlaw the practice of eletroshock therapy

Thank you so much for sharing! Signed, noted, recommended, etc. In my comments on the petition I noted that if this had happened to a 'normal' child, there would have been a massive uproar! Special needs children need our protection from cruel and unusual practices like this.

This is very wrong not what the so called great medical community thinks could be the best option

Why is this story from 2013 on front page and current news isn't?

Well Obama is on his way I don't think he'll be able to do much now. Is there an update to this?
