Illinois Launches Compulsory Mental Health Screening for Children and Pregnant Women.
July 19, 2004
The Leader-Chicago Bureau
Orwellian program in Illinois seeks to place all pregnant women and children through compulsory screening for "mental defectives."-
One group of parents learned about the state's plans to proceed with this program and on Monday issued an alarm asking for parents and citizens
concerned about the new program to voice their opinions at the forums.
This might be old news, I just thought this was an interesting story.

I don't think it's old news as it's the first I've heard of any serious implementation of this. I see Illinois is doing this under the Children's
Mental Health Act of 2003. When did that happen? I continue to be completely lost here as to what's going on.
