Truthfully, the statists have always disturbed me at their blatant support of the violation of the basic human right to life. To date, approximately 40 million lives have been prematurely snuffed out as a result of this distortion of the truth.
After spending decades supporting a policy that the statist does not have the right to tell you what to do with your body, they are now looking to control what you put into your body. Such hypocrites.
This case is particularly disturbing. The right to life does not come from the government or the FDA. The statist however, is now looking to take control over what you can and cannot put into your body.
"Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no 'fundamental right' to obtain what food they choose."
"The FDA essentially believes that nobody has the right to choose what to eat or drink,"
"You are only 'allowed' to eat or drink what the FDA gives you permission to. There is no inherent right or God-given right to consume any foods from nature without the FDA's consent."
In a past blog post discussion on the food modernization act, in summary, the government attacks the Amish, and is looking to not only control your food supply, but ensure you consume pesticides and genetically engineered food, as well as remove your access to natural seeds that will germinate and replace it with government engineered seeds that will not generate plants with seeds that can be used to grow your own food.
Now the statist who once proclaimed from the rooftops that you could do what you want with your body yet denied your right to life, is now looking to take possession of your life and your body. You will no longer have rights to your own body.
But they are not going to stop there. The statist now wants control of your children.
"States receiving federal grants provided for in the bill would be required to annually track the Body Mass Index of all children ages 2 through 18. The grant-receiving states would be required to mandate that all health care providers in the state determine the Body Mass Index of all their patients in the 2-to-18 age bracket and then report that information to the state government. The state government, in turn, would be required to report the information to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for analysis."
"The Healthy Choices Act–introduced by Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee….amends the Public Health Services Act by stating that health care providers must record the Body Mass Index of all children ages 2 through 18. “The provision relates to all children in states that accept grants under the bill,” a spokesperson for Rep. Kind told CNSNews.com. '….BMI will be taken at times when the child makes an otherwise scheduled doctor’s visit.' "
The government is no longer pro-choice, as in citizens no longer have the right to their own life. All things considered, I think the citizens should be monitoring and controlling the government BMI, which is in essence the Bloated Marxist Index.
