Forced fluoridation offends civil rights and social justice

Fluoridationists pretend they are doing their victims a favour. You don’t help people by violating their civil or human rights.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Water fluoridation needs to end. It is good that organizations are lending their support to help push this outdated and harmful practice of fluoridation toward collapse.
Bernice A. King, daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr.
This is a civil rights issue. No one should be subjected to drinking fluoride in their water, especially sensitive groups like kidney patients and diabetics, babies in their milk formula, or poor families that cannot afford to purchase unfluoridated water. Black and Latino families are being disproportionately harmed.
Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The League of United Latin American Citizens has passed a resolution titled Civil Rights Violation Regarding Forced Medication in relation to forced fluoridation.

LULAC supports efforts by all citizens working to stop forced medication through the public water system because it violates civil rights
The League of United Latin American Citizens
LULAC demands to know why government agencies entrusted with protecting the public health are more protective of the policy of fluoridation than they are of public health
