First, let's get the terminology straight. No one can be "injected with AIDS". AIDS is a syndrome, HIV is the virus.
Second, the actual virus, HIV, wasn't formally discovered or even known for sure to BE a virus until 1983-4 (the year Bayer started shipping those products). The first antibody test for HIV wasn't created until AFTER Bayer shipped the blood products in 1985.
So, please tell me how a company can screen for something they don't know the nature of. Seems a little silly to me.

Thank you mechang, I did a search but came up with nil, sometimes it just doesn't seem to produce results.
As for shedding light, this story tells itself. I was only presenting it. I can see though, that some people (bsl4doc) just can't get enough of a topic. They are still here defending the poor, innocent pharma company, even when facts are laid out for them.

As you guys know, Texas Governor Perry mandated it here in Texas. There has been outrage by us here that lawmakers are now looking into it. Nobody wants to be told what to do especially from the government. If this virus was transmitted like airborne viruses, I can see the need for a mandate. Last thing you want is an epidemic at a school. However, this is a sexually transmitted virus. I'm sorry but not all females are promiscuous. Like condoms being given out at schools, it's the type of thing that upsets parents. How dare they presume my daughter is like that. And we haven't even began talking about the religious morals involved for others. As if a parent with half a brain can't make that decision for themselves? We take care of our children. Come on people, haven't we already lost enough rights. Now, we are losing the right to choose. Don't ever give away your right to choose. Show me any right that has ever been taken away and then given back by the government. Once it is gone, it's gone.
Having said that, the whole story is being misrepresented at least here in Texas, because in the fine print, it says parents will be allowed to opt out for "medical, philosophical, religious or moral reasons".
Much ado about nothing. But as for the right to choose, always fight to keep them folks.
