    Hold on there, Chief. This is INGO. The Republicans here only want to limit the rights of those that disagree with them.
    It only looks that way because progressives approach all discussion as if what they believe is in fact unchallengeable truth and that whatever they want to do or be given by FedGov is a 'right'

    Why would people put their dna info in a database?

    I would suspect some sizeable percentage is white people trying to be more interesting and they think talking about their .03% Innuit background and that they are 4th cousins to Cher's dog's hair stylist's assistant helps them do that.

    Some are white guys who can't grow facial hair and wonder if it's genetic. Not naming any names or anything.

    I would say the more serious reason is to look for genetic predispositions for certain ailments and treatments thereof. If, hypothetically, people with a certain DNA marker were much more prone to a certain type of cancer, a database would help suss that out.

    Would you like to claim ownership of everyone who kinds looks like you?

    You cannot claim ownership of someone else's DNA because sequences are shared. It is someone else's DNA. Not yours.

    If you want limits on private DNA testing services making information available to law enforcement, work that angle. Don't try to limit other people's rights.

    Just out of curiosity how would your thinking go toward identical twins?

    One wants to share "their" dna and the other doesn't.

    Regards,
