Welcome Mat for the HIV Positive

For 20 years, this country has banned people who are HIV-positive from entering. President Obama is changing that. AP reports that President Obama is opening the doors of the United States are those that are HIV-positive.

Thank you, President Obama. Are you out of your mind?

In all fairness to Obambi (and you know how much I hate to say those words), I believe this is just a continuation of the policy started under Bush 43.

Granted, but I am no fan of George W. either.

You do realize that this doesn't mean that everyone with AIDS gets to come here, right? All this means is that, on its own, your HIV status won't automatically make you ineligible to immigrate. Is that really such a bad thing? It's not as though a few more HIV positive individuals in the country will make much of a difference.

Conservatarian said...

Yes, Sophist, I realize that. However, immigration authorities typically bar all serious communicable diseases. Why should one as deadly as HIV-positive not be a disqualification to entry?

My assistant's British husband was threatened with being barred because of high blood pressure. Yet, HIV-positive is not a bar by presidential order? That is not rational.

1 in 4 sexually active teenagers become infected with an STD every year, in the United States alone. Now, more than ever, we need to join together to fight this growing issue. As I read through your website, it is clear that you share the same passion for STD/STI awareness. We here, at, understand the importance of STD/STI prevention and treatments. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. We can not reach every teenager, but together we can try.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

Thank you,
