A cancer victim concerned about the radiation emitted by airport body scanners was forced to go through the x-ray scanner by a TSA agent despite exercising her right to opt out.
Infowars has received multiple accounts of travelers saying they were told by TSA screeners that they were mandated to go through the body scanners, despite the fact that Americans have a legal right to opt out and be subjected to an “enhanced pat down” instead.
“I was in the New Orleans airport and asked to opt-out. They made me go through the x-ray AND I had to go through a pat-down. I’m sure that is in violation of the TSA policy. I was reduced to tears,” writes Lynn Baker.
“I wish I had the video, but I wanted to pass this along even without. It shouldn’t make any difference, but I have cancer and do not want the scans to trigger the cancer as I am currently in remission,” she adds.
