The Implantable Microchip Smackdown


The Georgia Senate is ahead of the curve on this one.

About a month ago I posted some thoughts on the VeriChip implantable microchip for humans. You can read the post here. It stirred up a lot of conversation and the chip in itself has received a lot of feedback from folks around the country.

Well, some lawmakers are paying attention.

Last Thursday, the Georgia Senate proactively passed a bill banning the state’s government from requiring its citizens to have a microchip implanted in them should the time ever come.  The bill stated that the practice of implantation without consent would be considered assault and battery, a misdemeanor. Interesting. You can read the whole, yet short, AP article here.

Good for Georgia. That’s one state looking ahead and protecting its citizens and their freedoms. Let’s hope others follow their example.

By the way, here in PA we’re looking for more snow today 6-18 inches, depending on where you live. Time to grease up the old shovel again .  . .

  1. I’ve never even seen that much snow, Mike! It’s raining here in Alabama today…that’s enough! We don’t do snow well here in the South. 🙂

    I hope AL makes chip implantation a felony charge! Strange things on the horizon, huh? YAY Georgia!

  2. While I support this, it seems odd that a special law had to be passed for this. Wouldn’t forcing someone to do this be against the law anyway? If not, it seems like a significant hole in the law. Do we need another law to keep people from being forcibly tattooed?

  3. I think they’re being proactive to keep the federal government from passing a law mandating the implantation of the microchip. Maybe they know something we don’t . . . hmmm.
