Flying out of Philly? You might bump into James Babb, co-founder of wewontfly.com.
He’s at Philadelphia International Airport this morning, representing one of several grassroots organizations leading "National Opt Out Day” - a protest of Transportation Security Administration's full-body scanners and pat-down procedures. Babb has never gone through a full-body scan or pat down, but he says travelers should refuse to be searched because the scanners hurt health. He said they should also protest in the name of privacy, calling security screeners "gropers." Here's what you should know about security procedures at the airport.
Babb spoke with American Morning Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
"I want us to have the best security possible," Babb says. "That means we have to abandon the security theater, and we have to bring in common sense. What they're doing right now is for show. It's actually creating a false sense of security. It could make passengers less vigilant."
A recent USA Today/Gallup poll shows most frequent travelers are not bothered by the new TSA scanners, and the majority are willing to giving up personal privacy if it means they'll be safe.
So, which side are you on? If you’re headed to the airport, will you "opt out?" Send your answer to CNN's iReport.
