Stop Infection - Endorse the "AIDS Protection Act"
The World AIDS Embassy is drafting a proposed bill, called the "AIDS Protection Act". This bill (law) would punish people living with HIV/AIDS who infects anyone intentionally. By establishing such a law, we hope to decrease the number of new infections. Your signatures will be sent to our Senators in an effort to gain endorsement to the proposed law, so they can bring it to congress for a vote. Currently not all states have laws that punish people for maliciously infecting people with the disease. To us, this act of crime should be considered attempted murder and that this federal law will hold people accountable for such actions regardless of their state\'s law. Our bill will state that if you are HIV+ or have AIDS and willingfully know of your condition, then you must disclose your status to anyone you intend to have unsafe sexual relations with, prior to doing so. If you don\'t, then the law will allow for criminal penalties, monetary damages, and the individual infected can sue privately for personal injury. This continued act of deception to infection must stop! Join us in signing our petition.
