According to a new federal lawsuit, the state of Michigan is responsible for stealing the blood of around 5 million people.
The lawsuit claims that Michigan has been storing the blood of newborn babies ever since 1984, without the direct consent of the parents. The blood has reportedly been used for medical research.
According to the state, parents are welcome to contact them to stop the usage or storage of the blood. However, parents in the lawsuit say that the state is still taking away the decision from the parents by not asking before taking the blood.
