Genetic database of newborns.

Quote:
One health care expert and prominent critic of DNA screening is Twila Brase, president of the Citizens' Council on Health Care who has written a detailed analysis (PDF) of the new law in which she warns that it represents the first program of populationwide genetic testing.


Brase states that S.1858 and H.R. 3825, the House version of the bill, will:
  • Establish a national list of genetic conditions for which newborns and children are to be tested.
  • Establish protocols for the linking and sharing of genetic test results nationwide.
  • Build surveillance systems for tracking the health status and health outcomes of individuals diagnosed at birth with a genetic defect or trait.
  • Use the newborn screening program as an opportunity for government agencies to identify, list, and study "secondary conditions" of individuals and their families.
  • Subject citizens to genetic research without their knowledge or consent.
"Soon, under this bill, the DNA of all citizens will be housed in government genomic biobanks and considered governmental property for government research," Brase writes. "The DNA taken at birth from every citizen is essentially owned by the government, and every citizen becomes a potential subject of government-sponsored genetic research."

I do not wish to play the Devil's advocate. For comprehensive genetic research to occur, it must occur on this scale, if not a larger scale. The potential gains in understanding are exponentially vast. What corporation could afford the research, and if there were candidates, which would you choose?

Just buy lots and lots of foil. And guns.

I can remember my Grandaddy with a bowed head and folded hands would pray, " Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition"...

You and I are Southern born and Southern bred. Many of my family are still a bit pissed about Reconstruction. "Anything north of Dallas is Yankee land", Pappy said as he reached for the cornbread.

Add ammunition to the shopping list.

All newborns will have their DNA characteristics barcode tatooed across their shoulders for easy reading through a shower webcam ...

And I LOVE cornbread! I used to make magic cornbread with the Jiffy mix. The key to great Jiffy cornbread was not only to add the egg, but to use milk instead of water.
