Microchip Implants; Teen Pregnancy Prevention Funding Cut
A Wisconsin company threw a "chip" party this week for its employees. No dip involved. Instead, workers stepped up to have a microchip implanted in their hand. The company says it's all about convenience and contends this is the technology of the future. But is making it easier to buy a can of pop or log onto a computer a good reason to implant a microchip? Is there any good reason? We'll discuss the technology and the issues surrounding it with privacy, ethics and tehnical experts. Plus, the Department of Health and Human Services axes funding for its teen pregnancy prevention program. What's the potential impact for teens in Cuyahoga County?
