Just found this article. Hoped it was BS. Not really much to add other than WTF.
Read it yourself and see. Link LA Tiimes
Here's a quote from the article...




Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection. The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.


His argument is that medicine is available, so it's not that serious.

CAUTION don't have sex or get a blood transfusion in Cali.

Nice population control policy.

Please someone debunk this.

A quote is good.
A source is better.

It would seem that the bill will treat the HIV the same as any other disease.


Existing law provides that a person who is afflicted with a contagious, infectious, or communicable disease who willfully exposes himself or herself to another person, or any person who willfully exposes another person afflicted with the disease to someone else, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

Is HIV special because it's gay?


CAUTION don't have sex or get a blood transfusion in Cali.
Perhaps you should read the bill.

California has lost any sense of right and wrong. The state is a trainwreck morally and legally. It is a place where criminals are afforded protection over law abiding citizens.

Really? There are 100s of thousands of heterosexual people with HIV.

What an idiotic statement.

I was speaking of assaulting someone with a deadly weapon like HIV not being a felony.

Stop being so obtuse.

What? If someone knows they have HIV they should absolutely be required to tell anyone b4 sex.. and especially before donating blood.

What a stupid thing to say lol.

HIV is not a deadly weapon. It is a virus.

Seriously, you need to lose your personal problem with me and imagine someone intentionally giving your family members AIDS.

WITF does gay have to do with this?

Sounds like you need a nap old man.

Isn't assaulting someone with a deadly weapon already a felony?

A deadly one that if intentionally spread should be a felony.

Is there a cure? Last time I heard, HIV is fatal.

That's an honest question. I really don't know.

Yes... Because HIV is not curable it is controllable. People would not have to tell about syphilis because get a shot of penicillin and its gone.
