Remember the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) issue that was posted not too long ago? has a new petition up submitted by the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) that is working against the use of electric shock therapy and hopes, with the added weight of organizations across the globe, to close down JRC's practice with its efforts. PLEASE, for the sake of the victims, for the sake of the kids, please... take a moment to sign ASAN's petition at

I'm of the same mind. There were a few staff who had a good heart and cared about the kids and other young adults, but not enough of them to make a difference - eventually they left because they couldn't stand it either :(

Thanks so very much for signing the petition - I'm truly very grateful :)
