National Identification System



Should a national identification system in which each Americanís DNA pattern is registered be established?

Has the U.S. come to the point where we have to devise a national identification system in
which everyoneís DNA pattern is registered in a network of computers? I believe so, and
the process of using a personís DNA pattern for a national identification system is a very
good idea. This identification system could be used to offer new jobs, put criminals - who
are guilty - in jail, and also provide people with medical information about themselves
and their health.


I believe using a personís DNA pattern for a national identification system is a very good
idea, even better than fingerprints. Although every human being is 99.9% identical, that
.1% left makes a big difference between two people. By using a genome of 3 billion letters
Ė your DNA chain Ė that tenth (.1%) is actually three million separate links in your DNA
chain. That is how the difference between two people is figured out. I know itís a
difficult process, but it can be very useful in our society today, and that is why I think
it is a very good idea.
