There are no words to describe what went on at this asylum. I was invited to go check out the haunted attratction, after reading this I will NEVER support that exploitation!

I work for an organization that now cares for many of pennhurst former patients. Working with some, they still suffer from the treatment they received at pennhurst. Still at times yelling out about things that took place there.

I've worked with children who have severe mental and emotional disabilities. I was lucky enough to work at private facility that had plenty of funding. These conditions are deplorable. Next time you vote, remember funding for these types of facilities is one of the first things Republicans cut.

I am beyond angry at what society and individuals, do to children and adults with mental illness. And that is the proper term to be used and not the degrading word of retardation. No individual with an education should ever use that word.

I had a little girl that was handicapped according to some people. Her name was Amy. She was not to live a year according to the doctors, however God gave me my sweet miracle daughter for 36 years. She loved unconditionally, smiled, hugged, loved people and loved God. She knew how to live life.

If you disagree with Pennhurst becoming a haunted attraction, please sign this petition. I feel that the attraction is disrespectful to those who suffered in the asylum, and this upsets me greatly and makes me angry. https//www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/pennhurst-asylum-pennhurst-asylum-is-made-a-

I'm praying for the Governor of this state and the residents that let this place continue to remain open. I can not believe that a place like this still exist today. What is wrong with this world????

-to Ky, there are quite a few of these types of places with horrible histories, in america alone. do some research on Waverly Hills Sanitorium, specifically the body chute. pennhurst was set up because of nazi-like genecists who believe the handicapped werent human and non-society.

This still goes on to some extent. At a place called New Story in Wyomissing PA

I have a severly retard daughter, who is now 24 years old. It broke my heart to watch this, because some of these patients remind me of my girl. She has been my greatest joy, so loving and funny. She is truely my Gift From God.

God Bless all the souls at Pennhurst. They were treated awful, as no human being should ever have been treated. The people responsible have had their judgment day with the man upstairs. God Bless.

This is sick. It breaks my heart. My son has autism and I can not imagine him in a place like this. How horrible! Its crazy how inhuman humans can be. And shame on some of the people for sending their own children there when they could have taken care of them!
Alexandra Harrison11/19/2013
My God. I had so many tears running down my face smh. I cannot believe this horrible injustice
Sarah10/19/2013
What happened to the little boy John? There was not a thing wrong with that child! But the doctor was a complete lunatic
