I had a rather disturbing thought while discussing HIV and AIDS on another board. You know how we have all these drugs now that will prolong the life of those who are infected with HIV. What if, because we created these drugs, we have inadvertantly provided more opportunity for people to be infected. Think about it. The Longer someone with HIV has their life prolonged the more they have opportunities to spread the disease to someone else. Have people seeking a way to prolong the life of others just ended up spreading the disease more? Disturbing I know. Especially since its probably true. The really disturbing part is the alternative which includes quicker, but still painful death for those infected. And honestly it disgusts me. Which of course brings me to the poll. If you had to choose to let someone die (or help them do so) or risk the chance of hundreds or thousands others die what would you do?
