I can't begin to tell you how RETARDED that would be, what a civil rights violation that would be, and how discriminatory and disgusting that would be. What an ignorant, fascist piece of legislation! Not to mention unconstitutional. There's a difference between encouraging responsibility among HIV+ people and legislating private behavior.
How would you even enforce a law like that!? And what next? Make sodomy illegal again because anal sex is the primary method of HIV transmission?
Jesus Christ! They're still people! HIV does not turn a person into a subhuman monster! And to equate it with assisted suicide -- fucking Christ!
Also, if you think that the government exists to ensure that we have a right to life even at the expense of civil rights, you seriously need to reexamine everything you know about government.
Really? Is it so retarded? I'm an engineer, if I make a mistake in my job, or worse if I knowingly ignore a problem that puts others in danger I am fully responsible for it. I can be fired, prosecuted and convicted if someone dies or is hurt by something I design or work on. How is that different from knowingly infecting someone with HIV? Engineering isn't illegal and neither is being HIV+ but there are safety laws that engineers must observe and duly I think there should be for those living with HIV. No one is subhuman, but we cannot expect everyone to play the game nicely or honestly, that's why there are laws to protect everyone.
And yes, government does operate on a balance of life vs. liberties. It always has and that premise is even in the preamble to our constitution.
You alarmists and your "what next?!" crap. Right-wingers and left-wingers do it alike and all it is, is a token that you have no valid arguing points left. No, people will not marry animals and no, we will not recriminate gay sex. Making one move does not signify a trend in any direction, but worse still is refusing to make a decision and going nowhere.
