In what must be one of the most blatant acts of government criminal activity and total disregards for children’s rights, it has today emerged that the British Home Office did in the 1960’s approve drug trials at two British schools without the consent of parents
The drugs approved by the government were an anticonvulsant drug to see if it would control their behavior and a powerful sedative called Haloperidol now used as an anti-psychotic.
Furthermore, it has also emerged that one doctor who wanted to go even further, a Dr JR Hawkings, a psychiatrist attached to Richmond Hill School, did, back in 1967 write to the Home Office requesting permission to administer a drug called Beclamide, an anticonvulsant in an apparent effort to ascertain if it would control their aggressive behaviour. This drug is no longer widely used, but was used to control epilepsy.
The above doctor was given permission by the Home Office to carry out his experiments on the children. Alarmingly, all carried out without the parent’s knowledge or permission, furthermore the children, of course were not given the choice.
Did you attend the Richmond Hill approved school, were you forced to undergo this horrific experiment? We here at STB NEWS Stevethebloggers Blogspot would like to know.
