FDA Must #StoptheShock “Therapy” Used To Torture Disabled People – Center for Disability Rights

Trigger Warning: Disability Abuse, Torture, and Judge Rotenberg Center

Imagine if someone shocked you every time you did not do EXACTLY what they wanted you to, at the speed or in the manner they wanted. You could be subjected to very painful, and medically dangerous shocks every time you did not make your bed correctly, if you ate too fast or too slow or if you spoke without being spoken to. You could be shocked for anything, or, for nothing.  Would you live like that? Would you let that happen to others? What many people do not realize is that this happens every day to disabled children, teens, and adults at the Judge Rotenberg Center in Massachusetts. That’s why members of the national disability rights group ADAPT are currently in Washington, D.C. outside the home of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Director Scott Gottlieb, who has the power to make the torture of disabled bodies cease.
