Have any of you been following this whole “newborn DNA storage” stuff? On Wed we got the news that the “Court Backs Families In Handling Of Newborn Blood.”
First of all, I’m another person who didn’t know this was happening. I wonder how long it’s been going on. I guess I’m probably in the camp that says if it’s done for testing for potential problems with my baby and then taken and used for studies, I’m okay with that. But it does seem somewhat creepy to me to keep it and store it like that. It almost sounds like the makings of a Stephen King movie.
Where do you stand on it and did you know this went on? You guys all have young kids. Did you know this?
