    I'm not thrilled about it but AIDS isn't the death sentence it once was. As for the blood, it should be tested for AIDS
    Before it's taken or given...I forget which.

    It is not a death sentence if you want to be on their drugs for the rest of your life

    Even better not getting aids from a person who will get their hands slapped for doing it

    Obviously it's better not to get aids....I'm not worried about it now or before the law was changed.

    Abstinence doesn’t always save a person. I lost a daughter-in-law to aids, and she was on those drugs as well. We never figured out how she contracted the disease. The young black boy we adopted from the Virgin Islands never got it, and that’s been some time now. We don’t know if his genetics saved him or what.

    I hear AIDS drugs are astronomically expensive.

    Your paying to stay alive. The most expensive drug are the ones that don't work there is no cure in this drug. This is a big deal for the pharmaceutical industry captive costumers

    Anybody who has Aids and knowingly gives it to another person is sentencing them to a slow, torturous death. They deserve some kind of harsh punishment.

    At least now there are laws that make it necessary to test people’s blood before they are allowed to donate to the blood banks that most of us have to depend on. Had that very action been implemented when the medical institution first fessed up to the public that our counrty was going to face such a scourge, it could have saved so many. Maybe my daughter-in-law would still be alive today.

    @Shirley Martin
    Cannot agree more. Those already infected and know it, likely don't give a sh!t about others at all. Let's say YOU were told yer going to die soon, guaranteed. Would yer first thoughts be directed toward protection of yer loved ones? Likely not, if you lacked Saintly Worthiness, a virtue I just made up! This issue is a most interdicted and convoluted one, impossible to resolve in the short term. Frank
