Raw milk brings out the ‘Police State’ as farmers fight FDA

The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF), an organization whose mission includes “defending the rights and broadening the freedoms of family farms and protecting consumer access to raw milk and nutrient dense foods”, recently filed a lawsuit against the FDA for its ban on interstate sales of raw milk. The suit alleges that such a restriction is a direct violation of the United States Constitution.

This is from the FDA response:

There is No Right to Consume or Feed Children Any Particular
Food (page 25):
“established the existence of a fundamental right to make child rearing decisions free from unwarranted governmental intrusion,” these cases do not “establish an absolute parental right to make decisions relating to children free from government regulation.”

Same section, page 26:
“But there is no “deeply rooted” historical tradition of unfettered access to food of all kinds.”

Next section entitled: There is No Generalized Right to Bodily and Physical Health. (starts on page 26)

“fundamental right to their own bodily and physical
health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish. In addition, courts have consistently refused to extrapolate a generalized right to “bodily and physical health” from the Supreme Court’s narrow substantive due process precedents regarding abortion, intimate relations, and the refusal of lifesaving medical treatment.”

You are only allowed to eat or drink what the FDA gives you permission to.

You have no right to choose what your child can or cannot eat without the FDA’s permission.

You have no natural right to food.

Lastly, didn’t you read the abortion laws, marriage laws, medical treatment laws — the judicial system has already told you that government controls what you do.

I can’t believe a simple interstate commerce case over milk could pull back the curtain on Big Government’s police state perspectives.
