There’s something sinister about that little “heel-prick” test that hospitals routinely do on newborns. They say it’s to detect disease, but if that’s the case, why do some states try to keep the DNA samples taken during these procedures and store them for decades without ever telling the parents?
Some parents are wising up and going on the offensive.
A lawsuit has been filed by the Institute for Justice over a state program in New Jersey that has been obtaining and secretly holding onto blood from newborn babies.
The Institute for Justice explained in a press release it is representing two sets of parents in the case.
The state claims it can use the DNA from the babies’ blood samples for any reason without informed consent from parents.
The case charges that state law in New Jersey demands that when babies are born, blood be taken and tested for various diseases. This same demand exists in all states.
But, according to the attorneys representing the parents, what makes New Jersey different is that, “after the testing is over, New Jersey’s Department of Health keeps the leftover blood for 23 years. The state does not ask parents for their consent to keep their babies’ blood, failing to even inform parents that it will hold on to the residual blood. The only way parents could learn about such retention is by proactively looking it up on one of the third-party websites listed on the bottom of the card they’re given after the blood draw.
“And, once the state has the blood, it can use it however it wishes, including selling it to third parties, giving it to police without a warrant, or even selling it to the Pentagon to create a registry—as previously happened in Texas.” (emphasis mine)
That bit about selling it to the Pentagon “to create a registry” jumped out at me.
It’s a documented fact that part of United Nations Agenda 2030 is to create a birth registry for all people. Look it up.
Sustainable Development Goal 16.9 of Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development states, “Create a legal identity for all, including birth registration, by 2030,” and this “has been acknowledged as crucial for advancing the 2030 Agenda commitment to leave no one behind,” according to the website of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). On that same web page, they state:
Article 6 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights states that everybody has the right to a legal identity. Sustainable Development Goal Target 16.9 (“legal identity for all, including birth registration, by 2030”) has been acknowledged as crucial for advancing the 2030 Agenda commitment to leave no one behind. However, hundreds of millions of people still lack proper identification, and about half of the world’s countries do not have a universal system for registering births and deaths.
