Crazyfornia Democrats are rallying around a new bill by state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco,(where else?) that would make it a misdemeanor instead of a felony to intentionally expose someone to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
Under current laws , if someone who knows they are infected with HIV infects someone else deliberately – say, with unprotected sex or even sexual assault – it’s a major felony and can lead to years of jail time if they’re convicted. Wiener’s bill wants that repealed.
Wiener’s bill, SB239, would also repeal California laws that require people convicted of prostitution for the first time to be tested for AIDS and that increase penalties for prostitution if the prostitute tested positive for AIDS before after a previous arrest.
The rationale for this? Believe it or not ‘science.’ And equality, of course!
