Other Versions 

On May 2014, through Europe newborn children will be compelled to take in a subcutaneous RFID chip.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:

These messages circulating widely through social media websites warn that starting from May 2014 all European newborn babies will be Microchipped with RFID by the public clinics in the European Union and will be tracked thereafter.

About the Claim

Claims of this sort saying mandatory implantation of RFID (Radio-frequency identification) chips in human bodies (hand skin usually) have been around for a while now. In early 2013, similar stories said that every American should implant Microchip by March 23, 2013. This was attributed to a new Obama Health Care Law and is supposedly used to track people’s movements, including their personal information relating to health and bank accounts. Although such a technology does exist, no such mandatory laws have been made. You can read about that in detail here.

The original story in the present claim is actually an article published on a 'news' aggregate website.

About the Article

From what appeared like a news article with the same title published on TopInfoPost.com, this story started circulating online. The article, however, does not cite any sources of information, and the website is basically a 'news' aggregate platform that publishes stories from various websites, also including conspiracy theories and fake, outlandish articles. Moreover, if the European Union has made any such mandatory law to Microchip newborn babies from May 2014, it would have easily made into media outlets. No such story was reported by any news source.

About the Picture

The picture that comes with the story does not show any RFID chip implanted under human hand skin, it is in fact a proposed “biostamp,” a flexible digital circuit tattoo developed by the engineering firm IC10, and is meant to communicate wirelessly with any device that needs to check who the person is.

Conclusion

Considering the aforementioned facts about article source and absence of any credible reports, the messages warning European Union is going to Microchip all newborn babies from May 2014 are hoax. It is a fact that there are speculations that governments could someday implant their citizens with these RFID tracking devices, but as of this writing, no such mandatory regulations have been made anywhere.
