Keeping tabs

Kansas City Star | 03/11/2005 | Clinics fight plan seeking fetal tissue:
A Johnson County lawmaker wants abortion clinics to collect tissue samples of fetuses aborted by girls under the age of 16 for use in criminal investigations.
The argument is that they can use the DNA to test for paternity of illegal sex. I'm dubious. It sounds more like they want a permanent government record of everyone who has an abortion.

Imagine that Janet Reno wanted a DNA sample from every gun owner. How would that make you feel?

Same deal.
