Apparently not satisfied with releasing thousands of violent criminals, decriminalizing under-age prostitution, and their own personal gun running to international terrorists, California senators have a new mission: make it not so bad to intentionally give someone HIV.
Main proponent? The name is Wiener, Scott Wiener. Same guy that wants California to adopt an estate tax.
SACRAMENTO, CALIF. Exposing a person to HIV is treated more seriously under California law than infecting someone with any other communicable disease, a policy some lawmakers say is a relic of the decades-old AIDS scare that unfairly punishes HIV-positive people based on outdated science.Several lawmakers are promoting a bill by state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, that would make it a misdemeanor instead of a felony to intentionally expose someone to HIV, the virus that causes the immune system-weakening disease AIDS. The change would treat HIV like other communicable diseases under California law.
