  You're being watched
You're being watched: "Earlier this year, for example, the Justice Department unsuccessfully attempted to subpoena abortion records from hospitals and Planned Parenthood offices, ostensibly to scrutinize enforcement of late-term abortion laws, saying consumers no longer had a 'reasonable expectation' of medical record confidentiality."

Free Registration required to read this article in the LA Times. After you read this, take a look at the Privacy Commissioner of Canada's presentation to Parliament about the Canadian version of the U.S. Patriot Act.


I would like to be very clear at the outset. We object strongly to this Bill for two reasons: first, because the legislation is far too broad; and second, because it co-opts private sector organizations by pressing them into service in support of law enforcement activities.
