Janice the issue is FORCED treatment. That is controversial. ECT is also still controversial outside the mental health industry.
Lobotomies are also being done and possibly should be done for people who threaten murder and generally blame their violent behaviour on "seizures or illnesses". You are a victimizer not a victim. No wonder you can't understand.
It's about individuals NOT generalities. It's about the value of ANY innocent human life, not your insensitivity to my personal experience.
It's your opinion and your shame.
