H. R. 4518
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
April 29, 2014
Mr. Stockman introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce
To protect the constitutional rights of parents and children.
This Act may be cited as the
Parental Protection Act
The rates in the diagnosis of psychiatric disorders in children and the prescription of psychotropic medication to children has increased dramatically in recent years.
Nearly 70 percent of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–V) task force members report having ties to the pharmaceutical industry.
Many medical institutions are allowed to include wards of the State in research that presents greater than minimal risk with no prospect of direct benefit for the research subject.
There is a misuse of federally allocated funds to violate the First and Fourteenth Amendment rights of children and wards of the State.
The Department of Health and Human Services shall withhold all monies from State agencies or entities, hospitals, and medical facilities that—
allow research presenting greater than minimal risk to minors, juveniles, or wards of the State;
deny Fourteenth Amendment rights to the parents or child; or
investigate parents or charge them with medical neglect, or remove children from the parents’ custody when in disagreement with a subjective diagnosis involving psychotropic drugs.
The Department of Health and Human Services and the Attorney General shall enforce the provisions of section 4.
The provisions of this Act shall take effect immediately upon enactment.
