There is a nasty little rumor circulating that within the Affordable Health Care Act/aka Obamacare, there is a premise that is now law that everyone will be forced to have a microchip implant–beginning on March 23, 2013. This is a FALSE RUMOR. It’s not truth. Please review the information below and see for yourself.
Christians are being upset and scared by this rumor so I wanted to help share the truth via a posting, so that we can put this rumor to rest. When the time comes that the Mark of the Beast is actually implemented, we all want to be absolutely certain of what we’re getting into. We’ll each have a choice to make. We will not be tricked into taking the mark of the beast; we will choose of our free will.
For now, though, this isn’t the truth; it’s mistaken, erroneous information and rumor.
Debunked: Obamacare RFID Chip Implant Law Hoax
There’s a hoax going around that the health care reform act HR3200 (The Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare”) requires everyone to get a chip implanted in their body.
This has already been quite well debunked over on Snopes:
The bottom line is:
The proposed law did not require anyone to get anything implanted. It just created a national registry of a huge of range of medical devices from pacemakers to dental implants. The intent of the registry was to collect statistics on how safe and effective the devices are. HR3200 is not the bill that passed. That’s HR 3590, which does not have the registry.
An implantable RFID chip is just one example of a class II implantable medical device. Others include:
vascular graft prostheses
bone-conduction hearing aids
long-term intravascular catheters
intracranial pressure monitor devices
peripheral nerve stimulators for pain relief
eye sphere implants
intramedullary fixation rods
Here’s the original bill (which did not ever become law):
And here’s what it says:
SEC. 2521. NATIONAL MEDICAL DEVICE REGISTRY.
‘‘(g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that—
‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and
‘‘(i) a class III device; or
‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining
There’s a little more about administrative things, but the above is the entirety of what the conspiracy promoters base their theory on. They get away with it in part because the language of the bill is rather complex and difficult to read, so they can basically make up whatever interpretation they like, and many of their readers will be fooled.
They then build upon this by claiming that a Class II device is a
“implantable radiofrequency transponder system for patient identification and health information.”
When actually the three classes of medical devices have nothing to do with what the devices are, but are to do with how much they are regulated to ensure safety. For example:
Examples of Class III devices include implantable pacemaker, pulse generators, HIV diagnostic tests, automated external defibrillators, and endosseous implants.
Examples of Class II devices include powered wheelchairs, infusion pumps, and surgical drapes.
Examples of Class I devices include elastic bandages, examination gloves, and hand-held surgical instruments.
So the law simply creates a registry for this HUGE range of different medical devices.
Implantable RFID chips would be covered under the law, but that’s simply because they are one of thousands of devices that are classified as Type III or Type II implantable.
It’s not a law, and even if it was, it no more mandates you get a chip implanted than it mandates you get a hip replacement.
