California passes HIV Rights Law

By TwoScoopsMcGee following x   2017 Oct 7, 7:31pm 303 views   18 comments   watch   quote     share  

... making knowingly transmitting to a partner HIV/AIDS without any warning or disclosure a misdemeanor from a felony.

Because if you're charged with a felony to deliberately spread incurable disease without fear of punishment, then what freedom do you really have?

I hope they give drug-resistant TB sufferers the right to visit schools and convenience stores and breathe on the Slurpee Machine. After all, why discriminate against one disease but not another?

Just don't bend over near a Realtor and you should be OK.

Not entirely correct. Sex with a drunk person is very highly debatable and usually centers around having the capacity to give consent. I personally believe that getting passed out drunk is not an excuse for withdrawing consent after the fact but the courts have ruled both ways on this issue.

Sounds about right. It's now the same penalty for parking in a loading zone, just parking dick in a loading zone.

@zzyzzx, where do you find these lies about California, and why do you spread them? The law changed from felony to misdemeanor, but your other assertions are false.

As if that isn't bad enough?

KNOWINGLY infecting a person with a deadly disease is only a misdemeanor?

@iwog

Why do you continually log in with all of your Alts at the same time, RentingSusan, Storm1, and Iwog?

Trying to read all the posts of the people you have on ignore?

Or, just doing 3x dislikes?

@socal2 @TwoScoopsMcGee, the change from felony to misdemeanor prosecutes potentially deadly disease transmission the same, whether HIV or TB. You could argue they should both be felonies, as one legislator did contend. Frankly, the part of the story that surprised me was that intentional transmission of serious diseases had been only a misdemeanor. The debate seemed to center around whether people would get tested or choose not to know (in order to avoid felony prosecution). If you want them all to be felonies, that's a consistent position, and you should write your legislator.

Apparently some California Legislators took time from bankrupting our State to lower the bar for trying to kill someone. Shouldn't they have raised the bar on other diseases to be consistent?

People lives are at stake - and regardless if someone endangers a person's life through negligence or malice, it should be a more serious crime than a speeding ticket,

bankrupting


State prisons have already more felons than capacity. You should ask your legislators to end the drug war, in order to make resources available for other priorities.

I appreciate this curious2, if so then spreading TB knowingly and willingly should also be a felony.

I would say that TB has detectable symptoms ("Steve, you're really coughing a lot") whereas HIV generally does not have obvious symptoms in many people, at least early on.

What the State should have done is add communicable chronic diseases to the list of felonies, rather than remove HIV,.

Yes - if only California would cooperate with ICE and deport illegal alien criminals instead of wasting hundreds of millions on them in our criminal justice system.

Oh wait!

This.

Intentionally infecting someone with a disease should be a felony. Yes a person with HIV can take a pill for the rest of their life, but what if for some reason they loose access or something else happens to them such a mental illness that impacts them taking a pill later on down the road. Once you have HIV you life is forever changed with relationships, reproduction, side effects, and giving it to yet more people. Just because you don’t rapidly deteriorate like before changes nothing.
When this disease first appeared we should have treated them like lepers.

Homos and prostitutes got their wishes granted.

Ca no longer represents normal people, taken over by liberal loonies.
