An open letter to the U.S. Congress


885 so far! Let’s get to 1,000 signers!

To whom it may concern, I am calling on the FDA to enforce a complete ban on the horrific use of the graduated electronic deceleration (GED) device. For decades, this device has been used for the purpose of “behavior modification,” but these devices have been proven to be instruments of torture to the autistic community that are unethical, inhumane, and dehumanizing. Recently, the DC circuit overturned the ruling to ban these devices and the autistic community will suffer if these devices are implemented once again. I ask that you demand their immediate ban to protect the lives of autistic people. Thank you for your time and consideration,
