Bodily Integrity Act – Protective Legislation to prevent Mandatory Implantation

• The Bodily Integrity Act expands the definition of “tracking device” to include devices other than microchips.

Here’s why:
New technologies such as the Somark chipless RFID tattoo do not contain a microchip, and would therefore be exempt from legislation referring only to “microchips.” We have expanded the definition to cover all immediately foreseeable advancements in human tagging and tracking.

• The Bodily Integrity Act raises the age of consent for chipping to 18.

Here’s why:
Society recognizes that children lack the maturity to act in their own best interest when it comes to certain issues. For example, children are prohibited by law from smoking or joining the military. Being implanted with a microchip is at least as serious, and should not be undertaken by anyone who lacks the maturity to fully understand its implications from a personal, spiritual, ethical, and societal standpoint.

• The Bodily Integrity Act prohibits a parent or guardian from making a chipping decision for a child or other dependent person.

Here’s why:
In the same way that parents cannot force (or allow) their minor children to smoke or join the military, they should not be allowed to decide a chip implantation issue for them. Many people consider injecting an implant into another person’s flesh without that person’s full consent as violent and invasive as rape. Parental permission is not enough to allow a violating and violent act to be performed on a child. A guardian’s consent is not enough to allow such an act to be performed on an incapacitated person, either.

• The Bodily Integrity Act prohibits the chipping of a person’s remains after death.

Here’s why:
Injecting a microchip into someone’s body after death is a desecration of that person’s remains, and deeply violates many people’s religious sensibilities. No one’s body should be desecrated or their belief system compromised after death.

• The Bodily Integrity Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of chip implants.

Here’s why:
To protect people from forced or coerced chipping, society should be as blind to Implant status as it is to race, color, and creed. No one should be discriminated against because they refuse to take an implant. No employer, insurance company, government body or other entity should be allowed to discriminate against a person for refusing to be chipped. Incentives, discounts, or other programs that favor chipped individuals must also be prohibited.
