Parents in New Jersey are suing their state for storing their baby’s blood left over from newborn health screening. According to this report published by Wired last November 8, 2023, all US states do newborn screening, but each one has its policies on how long blood samples are stored. In New Jersey, leftover blood is stored for 23 years which can then be used for purposes beyond medical testing.
In one example, the New Jersey Office used a baby’s blood sample to investigate its father for a crime. Meanwhile, in some states, baby’s blood samples are used for medical research.
Other states like Texas, Minnesota, and Michigan had to destroy their stored blood samples after families sued their state’s health department. Meanwhile, Wisconsin was forced to abandon a plan to retain newborn blood.
Editor’s Note: This article tells us two important things. First is that government authorities will not hesitate to keep highly personal data about its people. Second is that these invasive practices will only stop if we dare to speak up.
We must realize that during the COVID scamdemic, governments have been able to collect our DNA through the swabs. Where did the data go? Is it stored in a database we are unaware of? Will these DNA be used for creating the “universal flu vaccine”, or some other medical device they will force on us again in the future?
This article shows us the importance of questioning the actions of our governments. We must realize that in a democracy, the authority of a leader rests on the trust of their people. They must follow our collective will, not the other way around. If citizens act from an enlightened space, which prioritizes human life and dignity, then governments will be forced to do the same.
This now returns to us the responsibility of shaping the future of our societies. What kind of future are we going to bequeath our children?
