North America's Crime of the Century

In latest version of Freedom Magazine, published by the Church of Scientology International is a story by Christine Hahn and Thomas G. Whittle where Freedom reveals that tens of thousands of “Duplessis Orphans” may have died or disappeared in Quebec’s psychiatric institutions.

What is perhaps the most shocking aspect of this story is that it has never come to light before.

The survivors call themselves the Duplessis Orphans, naming themselves after former Quebec Premier Maurice Duplessis. The article states:"many of these individuals were not orphans at all, but had been born to poor families which had difficulty caring for them, or to unwed mothers. Although no official tallies were kept, over a span of several decades, it has been estimated they numbered in the tens of thousands and perhaps as many as 100,000."

Unfortunately this resonates today on the subject of "mentally ill children" who are being prescribed ADHD amphetamines and anti-depressants for what is really normal childhood behavior, despite the growing evidence that these drugs are harmful, INCREASE the risk of suicide and are highly addictive.

The Church of Scientology International supports the work of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights in exposing these crimes.
