IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF IOWA WESTERN DIVISION
DEFENSE FUND, et al.,
KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, Secretary,
United States Department of Health
and Human Services, et al.,
What does the government (the defendant in this case) have to say about what you may or may not eat?
"There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food." [p. 25]
"There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds." [p. 26]
"Plaintiffs' assertion of a '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." [p. 26]
"There is no fundamental right to freedom of contract." [p. 27]
Michelle Obama thinks that you are fat. She will be arriving in your kitchen shortly to "help" you make better "choices" about your eating habits.
The federal government argues that you have no fundamental right to choose your own food, I would argue that regulating my food choices it is not one of the enumerated powers given to the federal government.
