I wouldn't be surprised if it was mandatory in some parts of the world...

I'm not sure I understand the plan here. Is someone suppose to scan their
partner with a VeriChip reader before they jump in bed with them?
Lawmakers in Indonesia's Papua <http://search.breitbart.com/q?s=> are
mulling the selective use of chip implants in HIV carriers to monitor their
behaviour in a bid to keep them from infecting others, a doctor said
John Manangsang, a doctor who is helping to prepare a new healthcare
regulation bill for Papua's provincial parliament, said that unusual
measures were needed to combat the virus.
"We in the government in Papua have to think hard on ways to provide
protection to people from the spread of the disease," Manangsang told AFP.
"Some of the infected people experience a change of behaviour and can turn
more aggressive and would not think twice of infecting others," he alleged,
saying lawmakers were considering various sanctions for these people.
"Among one of the means being considered is the monitoring of those infected
people who can pose a danger to others," Manangsang said.
"The use of chip implants is one of the ways to do so, but only for those
few who turn aggressive and clearly continue to disregard what they know
about the disease and spread the virus to others," he said.
