    Hey, sex with me might kill you. You got a problem with that?

    This really does qualify under need to know. I mean, who does PP think we are? Spiders? Mantids?

    "In a guide for young people published by the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the organization says it opposes laws that make it a crime for people not to tell sexual partners they have HIV."

    I agree with that. I do not think it should be a crime to keep your medical information private. Anyone having sex under any circumstances does so at their own risk. You can never be 100% certain that you or your partner is free of any sexually transmissible diseases.

    One could argue it is protected by Hipaa.
    When I take care of someone, they don't have to tell me if they have a certain disease.
    But I think you should tell your partner.

    I disagree.

    I think it should be a crime if you have sex with someone and do not inform them that you have HIV or Hepatitis B or C. It should be a misdemeanor if they do not become infected and a felony if they do become infected.

    If the status is not known, then there would be no penalty.

    It should not be mandatory to disclose your information to employers or other members of the public. And the physician should not be required to disclose this information.

    But that is because you use universal precautions if you are going to come in contact with any fluids.

    I don't know if its a crime not to disclose in the U.S., but I do know purposely infecting someone is. Disclosing HIV status should be encouraged. Period.

    God I'm glad I'm not single. Dishonesty and selfishness seems to be all the rage.

    Tell that to a 9th grader whose girlfriend is on the pill. Many young people do not use condoms.

    Neither Hep B or C are sexually transmitted diseases.
