A story circulating today claims that beginning in May 2014, all newborn children in Europe will be required to receive an implanted RFID chip.
The story is false.
Published by TopInfoPost, the article claims:
On May 2014, through Europe newborn children will be compelled to take in a subcutaneous RFID chip.
Public clinics in the European Union are to be alerted. The chip in inquiry will be contributed with the report sheet on the newborn.
Despite the official-sounding ominous report, it should be noted that this article cites no sources whatsoever. There are also no corroborating reports by any legitimate news organization confirming any of the claims made by this website and its author.
The image included with the false article above does not depict an RFID chip at all, but a proposed “biostamp” flexible-circuit tattoo developed by the engineering firm IC10.
We have a short video rebuttal to this story on YouTube, which you can watch below.
The article claiming that all newborns in Europe will be required receive a microchip is false. It cites no sources, nor are there any legitimate news organizations which corroborate this claim.
