Planned Parenthood: Don't Tell Anyone you Have HIV. Just Do It.

Patterico has found just another facet of the Responsibility-Free Lifestyle™ that the left always champions, where no one should have to account for their actions and everything becomes a "right," from the "right" to marry whoever you want to the "right" to health care to the "right" to affordable housing to the "right" Planned Parenthood is trying to create, the "right" of HIV-positive people to have sex with someone without informing them that their life may be put at risk.

CNS News cites the shocking claim:

"Some countries have laws that say people living with HIV must tell their sexual partner(s) about their status before having sex, even if they use condoms or only engage in sexual activity with a low risk of giving HIV to someone else," the guide states. "These laws violate the rights of people living with HIV by forcing them to disclose or face the possibility of criminal charges." Under the heading "Sexual Pleasure and Well-Being," the guide declares that it is a human right and not a criminal issue as to whether a person decides if or when to disclose their HIV status, even if they engage in sexual activities.

According to this most favored and revered of liberal institutions, it is your "right" to put someone else's life at risk for your pleasure.


Beyond belief.

No CJ, we are American. Murder is a capitol offense. Free sex without informing the consensual partner that you are carrying a deadly disease is PREMEDITATED MURDER. In this world (and the next) there are consequences for your actions. It's time you liberal freaks learn that lesson, sit down, and shut up!

Lol-we can only hope that CJ's partner is more honest than (s)he thinks other human beings ought to be. On the other hand, if said partner DOES give CJ a nice little gift, IMO the collective IQ around here would go up a bit.

CJ put down the Kool-Aid, it's warped your brain.

Anyone diagnosed with a STD should be required by law to inform their partner before they engage in sexual activity.

Those that are non-life threatening should be liable for any medical costs incurred treating the disease they passed on. Those with AIDs or any future life threatening STD that may come along should be held criminally responsible.

Sorry but STDs aren't like the cold or flu and those that have one should be responsible for not spreading it to others. If said other person decides to go ahead and play Russian roulette then they have no liability.

Just to clarify. If you had the clap back in 1995 there is no need to disclose that. If you have herpes, syphilis, HIV, or some other incurable STD or are currently being treated for a curable one but are still contagious then you should have to inform your partner.

While being in agreement in general, let's examine the statement 'it is your "right" to put someone else's life at risk for your pleasure.' for just a second.

I claim in fact, that it is. In the sense where 'right' = 'behavior allowed by the state' (perverse leftie definition).

Consider the lowly automobile. I can take two tons of steel, get it going over 88 feet per second, and point it right at you (remember those muslims who did?). And I am allowed to do so by the state if I merely desire to 'drive', as it's called. I am allowed to 'drive' with no perticular destination, at my pleasure and leisure.

So the state approves of me putting you in danger of harm in pursuit of my own pleasure in this instance, why not in others?

However you are also held accountable for any injuries you may inflict while behind the wheel.
Also engaging in behavior like drinking alcohol and driving which increases the chances of you injuring someone while behind the wheel is illegal.

Bad example BJ.
