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!

My God. I had so many tears running down my face smh. I cannot believe this horrible injustice

What happened to the little boy John? There was not a thing wrong with that child! But the doctor was a complete lunatic

How in the hell could there be a place like this!! My heart bleeds for these people, they have hearts and care just like everybody else. This is disturbing to watch

As I watched I cried. As I process this my heart aches. I have a cousin who lived there for 60 odd years until her death. Visiting her was heart wrenching. She was obviously abused all of her dear life. Janey was her name. Pray for her soul.

Can't believe humans are capable of doing this. What a Shame

For the wacko Genesii Parson, Where did you learn this crazy bull@%% this happened to these people because of the sins committed by them , what Bible do you read, many of these children were normal and taken there only because the parents were not educated. Get real girl

While I think it's wrong to use the place as an amusement attraction, I don't think it should be demolished either. It should stand as a SERIOUS reminder to what happened there.
