forgive me, i only skimmed the article...if i'm not mistaken, they will use the pku newborn screening to obtain this, right? so what are our options if we want the test but not the theft of our children's dna?!
From the research I've done, you don't have an option. They aren't even required to tell you that they are doing it, AND they are already doing this in all 50 states! (I could be wrong, but that's what I've gathered.)
You have the right to refuse ANYTHING medical for yourself or your children. They may not have to tell you that they are doing it, but if you refuse that it be done, they can not do it. You CAN have the PKU done without the DNA theft, but you must put it in writing, just as you would put a Birth Plan in writing, sign it and give it to the Dr. Nurse, anyone in charge of touching your child in any way. This is NOT required!! Just like vaccines, they say it is required, but it is not, they just don't tell you the whole story. REFUSE, REFUSE, REFUSE, and REFUSE SOME MORE!!!
