Skip to comments.Angle campaign working to quiet Scientology question
Posted on 05/26/2010 6:14:08 AM PDT by Fred
Carson City Surging Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle has had to defend her support of a prison program that her opponents linked to Scientology. Trying to head off that theme, Angle has eliminated from her campaign website mention of prominent members of the church, whom she worked with on other legislative efforts.
Angle has removed the claim that she, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, approached Sen. John Ensign to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants.
Preston and Elfman are high-profile members of the Church of Scientology, which does not believe in the use of psychiatric drugs.
Instead, Angles website, sharronangle.com, says only that Ensign sponsored a bill at Angles request.
(In 2001 and 2003, Angle introduced legislation in Nevada similar to the federal legislation, which passed.)

How can a school employee require students to take a prescription drug? Are they doctors?
Scientology is a cult, but I have to say that I, too, am opposed to school officials being allowed to REQUIRE my child to take drugs. School officials are seldom also medical doctors, and even medical doctors should not be allowed to REQUIRE my child to take certain drugs.
to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants.
This, in and of itself, is not a bad thing...other than such legislation should be necessary in the first place. Allowing school employess to REQUIRE your child to take psychotropic drugs was one of the incremental steps leading to commie health care. Where was the outrage when this "law" was made?
I have never heard of such a thing in my state (Virginia).
Thanks Sal, great choice....
Thye do it through school counselors, who set stuedents up for “evaluation” by School psychologists.
The abuse was mostly for drugs to control ADHA (attention deficit Hyperactivity disorder), and yes, there were school districts who required this in order for students to attend school.
I believe also that as families became smaller, there were a lot more women who had no experience of boys growing up, as they did not have brothers, and did not know what was normal for boys.
Hence, the stigmatizing of normal boy behavior as pathological.
