Electroshock survivor arrested at protest in Clackamas

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 05/18/2015
Electroshock survivor and activist Deborah Schwartzkopff was arrested for Criminal Trespass during a protest on Saturday against the controversial practice at the Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center .
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is still widely practiced in the United States, despite public perception that it is largely a thing of the past.
A campaign to ban the procedure in the 1970’s and 80’s had some visibility and achieved at least one outright ban in Berkeley, California in 1982, but since then it has mostly faded from public awareness.
Schwartzkopff underwent numerous series of shock treatments for depression and says she has lasting neurocognitive damage as a result. 7:45 minutes (10.65 MB)
