    not having disclosed his hiv status to the women.

    io wish there was a bit more detail to the story -- all we know is that he countered with the fact that some of the women had "multiple partners" as if their sexual proclivities were causal as opposed tom incidental.

    it sounds like some of the women seroconverted.

      Always horrible. :)

      Past evidence of their sexual proclivities would have been pretty limited by the shield laws.  But I do think that a few women seroconverted, judging by the link of another poster (and he also flat out denied he was HIV+).  

      When I was in undergrad my senior thesis was on the nondisclosure statutes.  I have mixed feelings.  

      What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

      What do you think of the nondisclosure statutes? To the extent that they exist at all, I rather like CA's position.

        reckless endangerment laws i contend are sufficient.

        as you know, there is stigma associated with the culling out of hiv in stand-alone legislation.

        i could write a lot on this topic but i actually have to go to a memorial now of a friend.

        i'll check back later when i am home.

        sad day.

    •  What is seroconverted? - n/t (0+ / 0-)
      •  seroconverted means (0+ / 0-)

        going from being hiv negative to being hiv positive.
