Will all European babies be microchipped after May 2014?

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.

Video Rebuttal

We have a short video rebuttal to this story on YouTube, which you can watch below.

Bottom Line

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.

Note that we no longer link to viral satirical or bogus stories such as these, for this reason.

    I must agree with my namesake. Humans have already been chipped and offered to be chipped in public so to pass this story over and to claim it’s pure science fiction is naive to say the least. There is no doubt what so ever that the government wants to chip people and they use the TV to try and make it seem normal. In the UK a tv series called ‘The Gadget Show’ showed them and said how it was envisaged that people would have them so they ‘wouldn’t need to open their front door’. OK, so let’s have the real conversation. Is Microchipping the population a good idea for security, or a bad idea for freedom and democracy?
