(NaturalNews) New evidence is emerging that the TSA is assaulting and humiliating cancer survivors as part of its aggressive pat-down procedures. Last week, a breast cancer survivor (and former flight attendant) who lost one of her breasts to cancer was forced by TSA to remove and show them her prosthetic breast as part of their security pat-down procedure.

Her name is Cathy Bossi, and she didn't even opt out of the naked body scanner. TSA agents suspected her breast prosthesis might be a bomb, so after she was irradiated by the body scanners, they subjected her to an aggressive pat-down as well. A DailyMail article reports Bossi describing the encounter with the TSA agent, "She put her full hand on my breast and said, 'What is this?'. And I said, 'It's my prosthesis because I've had breast cancer.' And she said, 'Well, you'll need to show me that'." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1331...)

TSA leaves another cancer patient covered in urine

In another outrageous incident reported by MSNBC, a retired teacher named Thomas Sawyer was left "humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine" after being subjected to an aggressive pat-down at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

"I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn't even speak," says Sawyer (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40291856/ns/trav...).

Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor who wears a urostomy bag that collects his urine. He has to wear special clothing to accommodate the urine bag, and even though he tried to explain his medical condition to the TSA agents, they treated him with the same arrogant "Whatever!" attitude as they began the aggressive pat-down procedure.

During this pat down, the TSA agent dislodged his urostomy bag, causing urine to start dribbling down Sawyer's body. He then had to walk through the airport soaked in his own urine, board the airplane, and wait until the plane was in the air before he could use the bathroom to clean himself up. The TSA never apologized, never offered to help and never even acknowledged that they had done anything wrong.

This is the kind of cruelty the TSA is now engaged in on a daily basis, it seems. Humiliating cancer patients is just a small taste of the outrageous actions carried out by TSA agents in the name of "security."

TSA head says nothing will change

Despite the horrific abuses of travelers at the hands of TSA agents, TSA head John Pistole insists that nothing will change. "If you're asking, am I going to change the policies? No." he said in a CNN interview (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/45...).

The TSA keeps citing "terrorism" as the reason they have to treat American travelers as terrorists. As long as they keep pounding fear into our heads, in other words, they think they can get away with molesting and humiliating us.

Beware of handing power to the federal government. Once granted such powers, it will always seek to expand those powers, even if it means trampling on the rights, freedoms and dignity of the American people. The TSA was once a department of a couple hundred people. Now it's over 65,000 employees, and they're not going to easily give up their power to molest and dominate air travelers.

What you can do: Opt out when you travel

It's up to you and I to protest this harassment. Opt out when you travel, especially on the upcoming national opt out day: www.OptOutDay.com

Stay informed by visiting websites such as www.FlyWithDignity.org and www.stopdigitalstripsearches.org and even www.VaccineLiberationArmy.com

Keep sharing the "Don't Touch My Junk" song and video

As part of the online protest against the TSA's outrageous actions, I've written the Don't Touch My Junk song which has now gone viral across the web, racking up 116,000 views on YouTube and 92,000 views on NaturalNews.TV just since Friday.

Here's the song page where you can watch the videos and download the music for free:

Warning: This song is NOT for children! This is a mature-themed song that addresses adult issues such as privacy, freedom, civil rights, etc. It attempts to use humor to make an important point about freedom.

Thank you for sharing this song and joining the grassroots resistance to an out-of-control government agency that is now terrorizing far more Americans than the terrorists themselves!
