YOUR RIGHTS CAN BE ABOLISHED AT THE STROKE OF A PEN: THE 1871 ARCHAIC WARD OF COURT LAW still in effect in Ireland today.

If you have an accident, maybe a car accident, a fall, a stroke, or an illness and go into a HSE hospital, you could end up being a Ward of Court. A HSE psychiatrist comes along and declares you a 'lunatic', there is no standard whatsoever of assessment required. They just have to say that they declare you to be of 'unsound mind and unable to manage their personal affairs'. Orders can then be made to remove you to ANY LOCATION and remove ALL contact with YOUR FAMILY and FRIENDS, and place all your assets with the court.

There is already an outstanding issue in the Wards of Court, people's funds have been lost and nobody is answerable for this.

HIDDEN & UNKNOWN but disastrous when it is applied to you in a Court where you become ANONYMOUS. Nobody is allowed to mention your name in public EVER AGAIN.

The UN CRPD does not create any new human rights. Instead, it states that all existing human rights apply equally to people with disabilities. 

There are thousands of people who are Wards of Court. They are not allowed to choose where they live, what they eat, what they wear or refuse medical treatment (any operations and medications are given against your will). Please stop psychiatrists using this archaic law.

To make decisions for yourself is WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN.

Help the Irish people remove the medieval Ward of Court System in this country now by making the government COMMENCE the long overdue ASSISTED DECISION MAKING ACT. 

The Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act will remove the 1871 Ward of Court Legislation and will comply with the UNCRPD.

BUT IT STILL HAS NOT BEEN COMMENCED!
