The state Senate voted overwhelmingly Thursday for legislation that would prohibit involuntary implantation of microchips in any body part.
“By passing this bill, we are sending the message that Georgia is committed to upholding its citizens’ constitutional rights and protection of their person,” the bill's author, Sen. Chip Pearson (R-Dawsonville), said in a written statement. He said technology is moving fast and “we must be careful that it doesn’t come at the harm of citizens. The benefits of a microchip that can be internally implanted are also available in many external forms.”
The Senate voted 47-2 in favor of the bill.
The Internet is awash with rumors about the government inserting microchips into people's heads without their consent or knowledge. This bill would prohibit that.( More Craziness Under the CutCollapse )
