Californian Governor, Jerry Brown, has just signed off on a Senate Bill that means those who knowingly pass on HIV to others will no longer be charged with a felony… It gets worse.
This does not just cover those who knowingly infect a sexual partner, but also if someone gives blood to a blood bank knowing that they have HIV! Quite what California thinks it is doing is staggering belief.
A person afflicted with HIV can now go to a blood bank, give blood that is infected with HIV, and basically get away without any serious charges. This is asking for all sorts of trouble. It just takes one angry person (and let’s be fair, HIV is a terrible thing, someone is bound to have gone over the edge) and they could ruin the entire Californian blood supply for the rest of the population.
Dem Senator Scott Wiener said in a statement:
“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” “HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.”
This madness will spread HIV, not stop it. Do Democrats really want this terrible disease to become part of “mainstream culture” in the name of pandering to identity politics groups? They are playing Russian Roulette with the lives of every Californian.
