From The Washington Post: Representative Tim Murphy, who has worked to decrease the civil rights of those labeled mentally ill, has announced that he will resign from Congress this month. His resignation comes after a news report claiming that the pro-life Republican congressman had asked a woman with whom he had an extramarital affair to get an abortion.
Too bad this scandal didn’t go public before his legislation was approved.
Hopefully this means former and present mental patients will be sitting at the same table as some of those people who are said to represent them soon.
Good riddance to this Congressman, but we’re still left with Murphy’s new law : the worst ” mental health ” law in US history. The anti-abortion laws and pro- ” mental health ” laws should both be trashed.
