The effects of The Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007 could be something where HIGHLY unethical things are done, including eugenics (Remind you of anyone...Hitler, maybe?). I have refused and will continue to refuse this blood draw (drawn during the PKU heel stick - either right after birth or at the pediatrician's office...test and banking cannot be separated since tests are sent to Raleigh) due to religious reasons. I don't want my child's DNA floating out there in some government DNA bank. Who knows what they'll "create" and/or "test" in years to come with MY child's DNA! Scary stuff! What was Bush thinking? This just doesn't sit well with me, knowing all that I know about medical research on aborted babies who survived abortions. Ugh...........
Check out these important links...don't be ignorant of what this could mean for our future!
*This is a "deep" site...scary stuff is found on here in relation to the newborn screening tests (when sample is recovered at the PKU heel stick)
*Primer: Genomics and Its Impact on Science and Society Look at those questions they ask!
