Stress Testing the MOTHERS Act

by Kelly Patricia O’Meara:

It seems these days that everything is a test. Yes, the powers that be have decided that taxpayer benevolence now is contingent upon passing a stress test.

pregnant_woman_200x327A bill that would subject pregnant women to mental health screenings – and possibly medications that would follow any diagnosis of “depression” – has returned and already is more than halfway through Congress, a concerned family group is warning.

WND reported a year ago when the plan was proposed to allow the government to order tests on mothers for baby blues. The proposal later died.

However, officials with United Nonprofits and Individuals for Truth and Ethics say the bill is back, and it already has been approved by the U.S. House and assigned to a Continue reading

In a large number of expectant mothers, once they give birth, an often profound feeling of loss and depression sets in.
