"Farrah's Law" Grants Fawcett's Last Request

Farrah's Law backed by STOParazzi, proponent of Rihanna's Law, is now also backing which will make it much easier to prosecute individuals who leak and buy the stolen private medical information.

Hollywood,CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2009 -- STOParazzi, proponent of Rihanna's Law, is now also backing Farrah's Law which will make it much easier to prosecute individuals who leak and buy stolen private medical information. Leaking private crime victim photos, such as in Rihanna's case, is bad enough, but what happened to Farrah Fawcett is an absolute outrage and something must be done immediately. Farrah's private medical information was outright SOLD to the tabloids by a UCLA Medical Center employee.

Farrah Fawcett said in a recent interview, "I'm holding onto the hope that there is some reason that I got cancer that may not be very clear to me now, that I will do." Farrah expressed her indignation over UCLA Medical Center employees leaking her private medical information to the tabloid press, namely The National Enquirer. Perhaps the enactment of Farrah's Law, legislation making it illegal for medical staff, or others who may have access, to leak private medical information to the media, whether they are paid for that information or not, will be something good to come out of the anguish Farrah has had to endure. "As in Rihanna's Law, the issue is the distribution of illegally obtained PRIVATE information, to the press, not the exchange of money. Even if law enforcement is unable to prove money changed hands, that should make it no less of a crime. The detrimental effects of these leaks are the same whether the information is sold or given away for free. The monetary aspect of it would be an additional criminal charge," states Terry Ahern, President of STOParazzi, and ( Farrah's Law, inspired by Farrah's horrific ordeal of betrayal by her own medical care providers, is currently in the works. To support her cause is an online petition people can sign to show their support. It shines a bright light on the dire need for reform in this area of privacy protection not only for celebrities and public figures, but for all individuals. Medical records are something no unauthorized person should have access to, especially not the press.

Ironically the employee guilty of selling the stolen medical information, has since died of cancer. It was found the hospital staff member's husband was paid $4600.00 for information Farrah's cancer had returned. "Seems there are areas that should be off limits," stated Farrah in CNN interview. Worrying about the press getting a hold of her medical records and publishing her condition to the world before she can share it with her family is something a person fighting cancer should not have to even worry about. Recovery should be her only concern at this moment but instead she has had to spend the past months battling anxiety and frustration over stories printed by tabloids who should have never been able to obtain the information let alone print the stolen private information.

To show support for Farrah's Law and help make what she endured into a positive legacy, go to (FarrahsLaw) and sign the online petition. (Stoparazzi) is an advocacy rights group that fights for celebrity's rights to privacy.
