We don't want "biometric privacy laws", we want no "biometrics".  Surely people can see that measuring someone's "biometrics" is taking their most personal and private information.

Privacy advocates cheered when Illinois passed its Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) in 2008 regulating commercial use of finger, iris, and facial scans. With companies such as Facebook Inc. and Google Inc. developing facial tagging technology, it was clear that laws would be needed to ensure companies didnít collect and use biometric data in ways that compromised an individualís right to privacy. If you lose your credit card, itís easily replaced. But what happens when a company loses, or tries to profit from, your fingerprint?

When has any company or government ever followed the laws on privacy?

Don't want to be scanned? don't go where they are.

make a home off the grid, grow your own food, take care of your health, and most of all, keep your mouth shut and say nothing.
