Alert/Medical Privacy

February 9, 2000

Dear friend of liberty,

Your private medical records and those of your children will
soon be an open file - without your consent or knowledge!  This
is no joke.

"An unconstitutional and dangerous rulemaking procedure by the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is underway and
greatly threatens the health care privacy and freedom of
Americans," Congressman Ron Paul (a practicing physician
himself) stated recently.

The mainstream media have been touting the medical privacy
regulations proposed by the Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS), but what they have not told you is that under
the proposed regulations the following people and organizations
(to name a few) will have access to your medical records and
those of your children without your consent or knowledge:

1.  law enforcement officials (no warrant needed)
2.  medical researchers and students
3.  governments agents
4.  banks in order to process health care payments and premiums
5.  government health data systems.

"The proposed regulations do not guarantee true protection of
medical privacy.  In fact, they are the first step toward
creating a centralized database for electronic medical records,"
according to a special report published by Institute for Health

HHS will accept comments from the public about their proposed
rules until February 17, 2000.  Please help stop this
unbelievable yet true plan of our national government.

Every American needs to know what you now know.  Please help
with this nationwide, grassroots effort.  

Government officials and bureaucrats, regardless of nation or
time in history, work to increase their power when the populace
is complacent during times of prosperity or humble during times
of adversity.

Please don't be complacent.  

Please forward this message to family and friends.
