Purposefully Exposing People to HIV is No Longer a Felony in California...
California is currently on a quest to prove to the world that they will do anything in the name of progress. Especially if it involves telling the President or the taxpayer to screw off (see Of Course! California Sues Trump Over Birth Control and Moronic California Votes to Become a Sanctuary STATE). Today's display? Apparently infecting someone with HIV on purpose is no longer a big deal in the west coast. So says Jerry Brown.
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.
"Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals," [Sen. Scott] Wiener said in a statement.
This is an ultimate example that leftism is beyond comprehension. They prioritize "safety" over freedom and liberty when it comes to, say, guns. Safety is the utmost priority there. But with HIV, meh, let's take our chances. Wouldn't want anyone's feelings to be hurt.
Look, nobody is saying those infected with HIV are inherently criminals (see Um, What?! Charlize Theron Claims AIDS is Caused by 'Sexism and Racism’…). But trying to infect someone with a life-altering (and sometimes life-ending) disease? Sounds rather criminal to me. We're not talking about cold sores here.
But don't just take my word for it, listen to someone who knows a thing or two about a thing or two.
