This bill should be regarded as the enabling step for future eugenics programs, ranging from covert and overt discrimination of individuals based on their genetic makeup up to precautionary 'confinement' and monitoring, imprisonment and on the longer run, if history is any indication, death, probably invoking public safety. The inherent dangers are tremendous, when you take into account that such DNA profles could f-ex. easily be used to find suitable organ donors, so you could become a target of assasination and organ robery without a warning, because the data WILL be leaked there's just too much money in it and i'll have to ask all of you whether you'd be willing to take chances with your life, depending on how 'benevolent' the administration of, say, 2032 will be.
This effort appears to be the latest Orwellian scheme which targets primarily children, with the clear intention to phase in a total surveillance
state, complete with DNA, Retina and Fingerprint profiles stored in a central database. (see 2nd ATS link)
Note that these profiles cannot be changed when compromised, making their use for purposes of identification problematic to say the least. Considering
the astronomic cost of such programs, the rela question is why are they really doing it.
Demand answers, and most importantly, do not comply with every totalitarian nonsense coming out of Congress if you can help it.
