Were whining about the So-Called Rev.Wright, Our own Dear leader signed into law a plan ordering the government to take no more than six months to set up a “national contingency plan” to screen newborns’ DNA in case of a “public health emergency.” Can you say Brave New World kids?
This thing sounds pretty scary. But, keep your heads barried in the sand my fellow “but he’s going after thoughts evil cave dwellers” sheep.
Here’s a good quote from a nice lady by the name of Twila Brase, who’s the President of “Citizens’ Council on Health Care”
“The public is clueless. S. 1858 imposes a federal agenda of DNA databanking and population-wide genetic research. It does not require consent and there are no requirements to fully inform parents about the warehousing of their child’s DNA for the purpose of genetic research. Already, in Minnesota, the state health department reports that 42,210 children of the 780,000 whose DNA is housed in the Minnesota “DNA warehouse” have been subjected to genetic research without their parent’s knowledge or consent.”
But the best quote came from, and no surprise here, Dr. Ron Paul.
“I cannot support legislation, no matter how much I sympathize with the legislation’s stated goals, that exceed the Constitutional limitations on federal power or in any way threatens the liberty of the American people. Since S. 1858 violates the Constitution, and may have untended consequences that will weaken the American health care system and further erode medical privacy, I must oppose it.”
I know, I know, I should be whining about Rev. Wright, cheering on the troops, and falling in line for Sen. Juan McStain.
I never did stand in line very well.
