Two things that I think will eventually happen, that right now most people would think would never happen.
One: we will chip our children. If you have a pet you know that a small computer chip can be put under their skin, so if they are lost and then found, an electronic wand can be passed over them and they can be returned to their owner. This technology is too easy to sell to parents that in order to protect all our children they will need to be chipped and all the children will be registered in a national database. It will be sold so that we can protect our children. We will also be able to probably track them via GPS like the lo-jack system. The fact that the government will have database and a way to track every human being born from a certain time will be wiped away by the people who sell the SAFETY of our children. Plus, why should you care if the government can track you as long as you aren't doing anything wrong. I would be surprised if DNA samples aren't somehow obtained at the same time. Fight against this type of idea, no matter what the rationale. This is wrong and would lead to worse things then most of us could imagine. The idea will start to be floated within the next five years.
Two: euthanasia is okay for older terminal patients. The aging baby boomers and the crush that they will put on the health care system will begin to bankrupt all of our resources. Therefore more and more States will look for ways to stem the bleeding. Ultimately the idea will be floated as a humanitarian gesture to save people from suffering. It will come in increments as first only the most severe situations, but ultimately it will be widen and become an morale dilemma for the generation in charge. You only have so much money to spend and you can't save everyone, so harder choices will have to be made. It will be sold as a benefit for the people receiving it.
I could be wrong, but I think both ideas will eventually be pushed into the main stream.
