I'm going to real quick put this out there before anyone else gets their tirades posted, but most ECT is not violent or torturous. I have personally seen it done and its really not a big deal. Also, it has helped some people greatly from certain illnesses.
Im not an expert though, and didnt watch the videos although Im sure they are gruesome or something. Just playing devils advocate here, ECT has gotten a bad rap because of movies and the like.
