    Genetic information is collected during torture, so where is this law on usage of the collected information? Where is the other comment?

    It is well known that for about 30 years now that American Citizens have had there DNA taken without there consent. What just took place from our Congress and Senators was a pardon if you will to protect these people responsible for breaking the law for 30 years. This is a violation of our 4th amendment rights. One again this 110th Congress and Senate gives another bunch of crooks a break. Here is one scary thing they could use our DNA for Framing us on a crime we did not do. This bill needs to be gone over and cover all of our rights to privacy so it is not used or abused against us. They can also use our DNA to make specific viruses that can only affect people with a certain trait. This may also be use as a form of genocide as genetic elimination in the future. I can not believe I am the only one that is out raged people get off the fluoride, we are being so dumbed down. Redo this bill. I will be writing my Representatives next.

    I’m sorry, but are you people braindead? Genetic information collected during torture? Use DNA for framing us on crimes? Where did THIS come from? Read the bill again! It specifically protects workers from having their family’s medical history being used against them. This is a civil rights act, not a free pass for genocide, torture, or any other extreme view.
