Why has the Government been collecting genetic information on American newborn babies over the past decades, and who told them they could?
Newborn babies in the United States are routinely screened for a panel of genetic diseases. Since the testing is mandated by the government, it’s often done without the parents’ consent, according to Brad Therrell, former director of the National Newborn Screening & Genetics Resource Center.
Like a thief in the night nurses and medical practitioners come with their needles, and instead of taking candy from a baby they take the most sacred genetic code from our precious newborns. In the State of Florida, 383.14 (5), Florida Statutes screens for 32 different core disorders.
Like in the Laboratory of a Frankenstein movie, hospitals around the United States are collecting sacred genetic property and information from American new born babies and a high percentage of the parents are unaware that their child’s DNA is being stored in government labs. The narrative states that it’s in the best interest of the child in case of any future health crisis or external problems that could arise yet the facts are, these procedures are administered without the verbal or written consent of the parents.
President Trump is currently dealing with matters of tyranny and treason from the enemies deep within our own government who also aided and abetted those foreign enemies. They include but not limited to leaders in the political, military and various government offices, heads of major corporations, media personnel, Hollywood stars, and others. This news has begun to surface over the past year of the most abusive, vile and distorted crimes against the children of America and the children of the world. These crimes involving, child trafficking, sexual abuse, endocrine and body harvesting of children’s organs and other unbelievable and inhumane acts including child sacrifices. Americans are awakening to new levels of vigilance and patriots standing guard protecting their most treasured assets, our children and future legacy.
The majority of Americans support our 45th President of the United States as he champions for America’s forgotten people.
Mothers and Fathers across this great nation need to make their case to President Trump – with a plea to create an Executive Order removing the “illegal DNA screening of American Newborn babies in all 50 states”. Our children are not science experiments and we are living through a time in history like never before as we witness layer after layer of crimes committed by the very people who were suppose to protect the American people. The President is the only one who can save our future legacy from future malice and weaponized technology.
So how did hospitals gain the power against the parents knowledge and approval of newborns to extract their DNA?
President George W. Bush signed the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007 (Pub.L.110-204) (NBSSLA) into law on April 24, 2008, a day before DNA Day.https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/110/s1858
The Act amended the Public Health Service Act to establish grant programs concerning newborn screening education and outreach, as parents are often unaware that newborn screening takes place and the number and types of screening varies across states.
It also established grant programs to coordinate follow-up care, after newborn screening is conducted. The legislation also reauthorized programs under part A of title XI of the Public Health Service Act.
In his introductory remarks, Senator Chris Dodd stated that the legislation “protect[s] the most vulnerable members of our society: newborn infants.” Newborn Screening is a proven life saving and effective public health tool used to identify thousands of babies in the U.S. born with genetic, metabolic, and congenital conditions.
At the time of the legislation’s passage, only 15 States along with the District of Columbia required newborns to be screened for 29 core conditions as recommended by the Health Resources and Services Administration / American College of Medical Genetics’ 2004 Report.
Genetic testing for newborns started in the 1960’s with testing for diseases and conditions that, if undetected, could kill a child causing severe problems, such as mental retardation. Since then, the screening has helped save countless newborns. Over the years, many other tests were added to the list. Now, states mandate that newborns be tested for anywhere between 29 and 54 different conditions and the DNA are stored in state labs for anywhere three months to indefinitely, depending on the state.http://www.floridahealth.gov/programs-and-services/childrens-health/newborn-screening/nbs-disorder.html
Over the past couple decades, action has been taken and lawsuits filed as these parents concerns spark new debates about whether it’s appropriate for a baby’s genetic blueprint to be in the government’s possession.
Most parents were appalled when they found out, there is no reason to store a child’s DNA indefinitely. Another fear is the obtuse chance this information could become weaponized, as Americans have witnessed so many levels of abuse pertaining to government enforced laws and regulations. The repercussions hinder later in life could restrict the ability of the individual to obtain health insurance or even get a job.
Why is the Government collecting this sacred information on newborn human beings and who told them they could?
Surely it’s the gravest form of identity theft imaginable when specimens are often given to outside researchers.
Scientists have stated the collection of DNA samples is a “gold mine” for doing research and as technology progresses beyond that of human comprehension, and many patents are hidden, the average American parent has grown suspicious of any government involvement with their children at any level.
In the last decade alone, there has been a rise in autism alone, many claim it’s connected with a toxic mixture in vaccinations. Other concerns of newborns are those born with apparent inherited diseases such as Down Syndrome, Turner’s Syndrome, Patau Syndrome, or Cystic Fibrosis.
What about the trending influence of transgenderism?
In certain parts of the U.S. and the world are emerging groups of parents wanting to raise male children female, and female children male.
Many people question the fact that they feel our government has weaponized our health care and influenced our culture in the name of sterilization and Agenda 21.
According to the National Newborn Screening & Genetics Resource Center, “Newborn screening programs exist in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Each of these 51 programs has identified an individual contact person most knowledgeable about program and follow-up issues and a second individual whose responsibility is laboratory protocol. There are a number of state programs with either contract laboratories or multiple laboratory sites. In these states, the contact person listed remains the individual deemed most appropriate to address the laboratory issues for the state program. A few states prefer follow-up issues and laboratory issues to be handled by the same individual and those are so noted.”
If newborn DNA is sequenced into a numerical format, the government will soon have and own each child’s complete genetic code allowing them to make all manner of inferences about future medical conditions of not only that child, but future offspring of that child. According to Francis Collins, the current head of the National Institutes of Health, “whether you like it or not, a complete sequencing of newborns is not far away”.
While it is not unusual for newborn DNA, obtained either via neonatal methods or soon after birth, to be tested for potential genetic problems, several states are now storing the DNA and even turning it over for research purposes. A February 2017 report in the Texas Tribune revealed that the Texas Department of State Health Services was giving hundreds of infant blood spots to the Armed Forces DNA identification lab who is in the process of building a national mitochondrial DNA registry. Nudged by the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007, the government is offering federal funds to states that collect, store and share your babies DNA, usually obtained without parental knowledge or consent. Government ownership of your child’s DNA enables State Health Departments and future legislatures to use that DNA as they see fit. And according to Twila Brase, president of the Citizens Council on Health Care, “the only reason to store newborn DNA long term is to conduct genetic research. Every American child will grow into an adult who’s DNA is owned and accessible to the government for research, law enforcement, predictive analysis and social and genetic engineering.”
While some states are considering ways to prevent the abuse of this genetic information, the best action would be to take newborn screening out of the state health departments. Newborn screening should be a hospital procedure, NOT a government procedure. If states never get the blood, they would never be able to store it, use it or share it. Government storage of your child’s DNA and genetic tests without parental consent violates genetic privacy rights, parental rights, property rights, and Fourth Amendment rights. It is up to parents to pressure their local state legislature to pass laws requiring informed consent before it’s too late. While DNA is regularly collected from those who commit serious crimes, some states are passing laws requiring DNA collection from those charged with minor low level crimes. It’s just a matter of time before the government requires DNA to obtain a drivers license or a marriage license in order to build in a national DNA registry of everyone in the country.
