CANADA MAKES IT EASIER TO INFECT OTHER PEOPLE WITH HIV
Ottawa, Canada – To say that HIV and AIDS are the plagues of the modern era is an understatement. That disease has killed millions of people around the world and while it is certainly not have the power or widespread nature of ailments like the bubonic plague, it very well could have.
HIV has, of course, been under constant attack from medical professionals almost from the start of its mainstream appearance. Awareness and aggressive treatments for the disease have allowed us to get a foothold on the ailment that, had it emerged in a less enlightened or sophisticated time, would certainly have cut a devastating path across humanity.
That control, though, is the key to our success against the disease. It isn’t a fluke or chance that we have been so successful in fighting HIV, it has been the result of a lot of hard work and a lot of money, things that have staved off a crisis that could have threatened our species. Now, though, the disease is on the ropes and that has prompted a number of people to become more cavalier in response to it, including it appears the entire nation of Canada which has now made it much easier to infect other people with the disease.
The decision, which does not require disclosure unless there is “a realistic possibility” of transmitting the disease, has already raised alarms from advocacy groups across the country and around the world because people tend to lie about such things.
It’s not clear why the judges feel they can be so cavalier about a disease that is so easily spread and has no cure but clearly they don’t feel they will be personally affected by the ailment.
None of the judges have HIV themselves its assumed.
“From a purely legal standpoint this does make some sense but there are reasons that there are harsh rule in place in respect to HIV and AIDS and the main reason is we want to stop it from spreading. It’s pretty simple really, we just don’t want it around anymore and until a cure is found the best way to ensure that is to stop the spread,” said Scrape TV Health analyst Rebecca Phelps. “This law gets in the way of that. It also helps scumbags who want to spread the disease to other people on purpose but what it really does is help encourage the spread of the disease because people who have the disease are already people prone to risky activity.”
Previously the ruling made non-disclosure a type of sexual assault, as it is in most countries.
“It is true that Canada has a very low rate of infection and it is also true that just about no country in the world is going to follow Canada’s lead in really anything it ever does because, well, because it’s Canada but it does mean that the people of that country are now at increased risk of getting a deadly disease that could kill them,” continued Phelps. “So I guess what that means is don’t have sex in Canada. I mean it’s pretty basic, they don’t want people having sex which of course means no more babies and the end of the country and their AIDS loving ways forever. A shame really but I guess you get what you ask for in life, including AIDS.”
It’s not clear how many people have gotten HIV since the announcement on Friday.
