The Mother's Act S. 1375--110th Congress (2007): Mom's Opportunity to Access Health, Education, Research, and Support for Postpartum Depression Act.

Bill S.1375 is currently in the first stage of the legislative process. It was introduced to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on March 11, 2008.

The “Mothers Act” would screen pregnant women for potential depression -- and treat them with antidepressants during and/or after pregnancy to avoid postpartum depression.

Co-sponsored by Barack Obama, and senators Bernard Sanders (VT), Sherrod Brown (OH), and Christopher Dodd (CT).

--- The bill is promoted under the pretext of protecting new mothers from depression and/or giving new mothers the tools to manage depression. Of course, many new mothers will be diagnosed in need of medication.

Another boost for BigPharma, and the drug pushers we sometimes refer to as "doctors." More payment to pimps, sometimes referred to as contributions to politicians. More dumbed down legal junkies, sometimes referred to as sheople.

Gosh Bubba, I can hardly wait for free healthcare so we can all be diagnosed and treated for something. (Spoonful of Sugar)
