The world’s largest drug companies are encouraging
pregnant women to take prescription drugs, get vaccine shots, and even
have chemotherapy. Among these are selective serotonin reuptake
inhibitors (SSRIs) or antidepressants, which are causing miscarriages
and a variety of birth defects.
Excessive prescription drug use in
pregnant women is also linked to the increase of babies born with
autism, preterm birth, newborn behavioral syndrome, persistent pulmonary
hypertension of the newborn and longer-term neurobehavioral effects.
feel that corporations are strongly pushing a distorted psychiatric
view of drugs recommending that essentially everyone, including pregnant
women, needs to be medicated in order to be normal. While
antidepressants increase all different kinds of risks for pregnant women
their dangers have been left largely unexamined. Corporate media
downplay these serious risks as drug companies are major advertisers on
corporate outlets and stand poised to make substantial profits.
