Family Gets Computer Chips Implanted:
Family Gets Computer Chips Implanted: I find this story disturbing…
“BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) – A Florida family on Friday became the first to be implanted with computer chips that researchers hope will someday become an easy way to provide emergency room staffers with patients’ medical information.
I don’t care if this family wants to implant chips under their skin but when you start talking about providing “emergency room staffers with patients’ medical information” you’re implying widespread and perhaps even mandatory usage. That’s not going to fly with a large percentage of the American population. There are a lot of people who are not going to allow computer chips to be put into their bodies for a variety of reasons. There are people who’ll see this as the “mark of the Beast” mentioned in the Bible, some people won’t want foreign objects in their bodies unnecessarily, and this of course has the potential to be the most monstrous abuse of human privacy in the history of mankind.
Under no circumstances imaginable would I allow someone to stick a computer chip in my body and I think that’s the opinion of the majority of Americans. Personally, I’d like to see legislation that forbids the use of mandatory implants in government and private industry while this technology is still in it’s infancy.
