HIV+ Visitors

You know, probably, that the United States has banned HIV+ visitors since 1990. To our shame.

The proposed Bush administration policies to alleviate the situation are only going to make things worse, says the HIV Medicine Association.

In other science news, premature births in the U.S. were up again last year, and still no one really knows why. The premature birth rate (12.7%) is up 20% since 1990, and up 30% since 1981.

I saw a headline saying Huckabee (?) was at that time and still is for quarantining people with AIDS. I'm not sure if that extends to people who are only carrying the virus. Bonehead beliefs aren't always coherent.
