I have personally witnessed the horrific aftermath of what the administration of electro shock to my father and brother has rendered. It transformed them both from highly able and responsible persons that previously displayed minor problems confronting issues at hand, into abandoning their confront altogether, blaming many others for their condition (except themselves and the psychiatrists), and left them with a continuous dependency upon psychiatric drugs which results in toxic overload...

Abusing a woman can "help" her turn into a loyal wife. You can tie a person to a bed for the rest of her life and prevent suicide 100%. I know I'm using hyperbole, because when something so outrageously wrong cannot be seen hyperboles come in handy. ECT is abuse, torture, and is not based on medicine nor science but on tyranny of psychiatry, junk science, pseudoscience, and abuse of a false authority. You are better off getting hit on the head with a bat. Probably that can prevent suicidal ideation 85% and the "treatment" can be free.
