Is there a cure? Last time I heard, HIV is fatal.
That's an honest question. I really don't know.

Are you suggesting that having sex without a condom makes a person fair game for a psychopath who KNOWINGLY infects them with HIV?
Are you suggesting that contact with a person infected with HIV inevitably leads to infection?
Are you suggesting that a psychopaths gives a # about any laws?
Source: Me... I just made it up to show how silly your requirement for proof is.
A survey of HIV-infected individuals between the ages of 25 and 44 revealed that 94.3% of the respondents stated that they would fully disclose their medical condition to a potential sexual partner only if not doing so remained a felony. The respondents overwhelmingly stated that if non-disclosure were only a misdemeanor, they would not disclose their condition.
Alabama? Then you best be movin' on son.
just to thank God Almighty I don't live in California where endangering another person is a simple misdemeanor.
Under Alabama’s communicable disease exposure statute, any person with a sexually transmitted disease, including HIV, may be imprisoned for up to three months and/or fined up to $500 if they “knowingly” transmit the disease, assume the risk of transmitting disease, or perform any act that will probably or likely transmit such disease to another person. Neither the intent to transmit the disease nor actual transmission is required for prosecution.

I don't know how to respond to this.
AIDS used to be a death sentence.
I guess the moral of the story is really know who you're sleeping with.
