Voting 'Yes' to a Ban on Electroshock
Hastings Center Report. 1982 Dec; 12(6): 19.
Brief background information is presented on the 2 November 1982 approval by voters in Berkeley, California, of a ban on the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in local hospitals. The drive to ban ECT was spearheaded by Theodore Chabasinki, an activist for the rights of mental patients, and the Coalition to Stop Electroshock which he chairs. The Coalition is considering whether to seek a vote on a statewide ban on ECT, while the American Psychiatric Association is expected to challenge the Berkeley ban on legal grounds. (KIE abstract)
