Electroshock: A Call to Action To Curtail Abusive “Treatment”

You can make a public comment to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) here: http://1.usa.gov/1Tx1lMg. The FDA has initiated a proposal that would reclassify Electroconvulsive Therapy Devices (ECT) from its current category as a high risk device, to a lower risk machine with less regulatory controls. This is despite the federal agency’s admission that the ECT device has not been proven safe and effective. To date, nearly five million Americans have received ECT “treatment” without ECT manufacturers being required to submit valid scientific evidence, such as clinical trials, of the device’s safety or effectiveness (which has never been proven).
