Forums - Politics Discussion - In California, it is no longer a felony to knowingly infect someone with HIV

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.

More at the link but how messed up is that? You know you're exposing someone else to HIV but do not disclose it and infect that person and get away with nothing more than what a speeding ticket offense would give you. Is that really the best way they found to care for HIV patients? Surely there is an extent to how liberal you can be.

WTF is going on in USA ?

That's absolute bullshit.

Knowingly exposing another person to any disease is an atrocious act. You are exposing them to something that could either kill them or dramatically decrease their quality of life. Laws should not become more lenient for those exposing others to harmful diseases, whether it be HIV or something else. Wilfully putting someone in a position in which you can infect them without letting them know the risks is psychotic.

California gone mad .

I'm fine with most laws California does but this is bullshit



Progressivism. The only way forward for a disoriented person.
