In futuristic movies like "Aliens 2" and "12 Monkeys," prisoners are bar coded for easy identification. But today's reality is even wilder: Scientists have proposed bar-coding embryos.
Researchers from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in Spain have just finished testing a method for imprinting microscopic bar codes on mouse embryos -- a procedure they plan to test soon on humans. The venture is meant to avoid mismatches during in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer procedures. But privacy experts and children's rights advocates were instantly concerned by the concept of "direct labeling" of embryos, calling for transparency in the process.
An embryo is a human life, so we have to move forward with this very, very cautiously, Pam Dixon, executive director for the World Privacy Forum, told FoxNews.com. Obviously we cant ask the embryo what it wants, so the individual making the donation must consent to this as well as the individual receiving the donation.

Mengele clones no doubt with the same goals.
Not in my lifetime!
I’d like these IDIOTS tagged! Won’t say with what....
Someone bucking for a Mengele Award? Would this be a Nuremberg Code violation? Or don't the embryos qualify as "human" under the law?
This sounds like the Mark of the Beast stuff...
This is even weirder and scarier than science fiction. Will their bar codes be run by the bar code of a certain powerful politician whose code number consists of three identical digits?

Welcome to the real Twilight Zone of Liberal Insanity.
15And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. 16Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
