About these 2 YouTube videos- Diana Loper. "It only takes a minute to destroy a brain. At 24, Diana Loper was given electroshock for post-partum depression and an inability to sleep after the birth of her child. After 24 treatments, she was released in a far worse condition, and could no longer care for herself or her family . As a result, her husband divorced her and her child was taken away by the courts. This is her story..."

I wish I had seen this earlier. I would have voted for “It’s barbaric and dangerous.” What a sad story! She even forgot her son.

Yes, it's a tragic story. ETC made her forget her son, and husband. She lost them both. Sorry that you missed the vote. I will have more polls in the near future on other topics.
