While the Zimmerman trial took the attention of the nation, the government quietly went about its business of making and passing laws.
Most recent is Executive Order 13649, which makes it MANDATORY that ALL Americans between the ages of 15 and 65 be tested for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
I get it. AIDS is a scary thing, and some people would rather not know… But is the government right to force you to know your “status”?
Some disturbing language exists in the order as well… For instance :
“The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recommends that clinicians screen all individuals ages 15 to 65 years for HIV, and the Department of Health and Human Services Guidelines for Use of Antiretroviral Agents now recommends offering treatment to all adolescents and adults diagnosed with HIV”
Is the treatment truly “offered” or as it is implied “up to the person” or will the use of the “antiretrovirals” be mandatory as well? What if a person refuses treatment and decides to prevent transmission through abstinence or the use of condoms? Will there be a penalty? A fine? Jail for endangering the public?
Another questionable phrase found within the order:
“initiating HIV treatment when the immune system was relatively healthy reduced HIV transmission by 96 percent.”
This part scares me and need FULL CLARIFICATION. Personally, the idea of introducing HIV treatment to my healthy body as a preventative measure is enough to make me never want to be intimate with another human being ever again. I am hoping this is a tactic for someone who HAS the virus, is relatively healthy, and wants to reduce the risk of transmission … But it is not clear if this is the meaning.
An “HIV immunization” is the point I’m getting at, and that is what this executive order sounds like…
Listen, I get it.. Again.. HIV/AIDS is scary and terrible. Especially with the proliferation of “downlow” men who engage in risky behaviors with both sexes while hiding who they are. They don’t care about themselves so you better believe they don’t care if they pass a life-ending disease on.
There are so many reasons why this is good, but I see how this can go bad REAL quick too.
– murder will go up as people get their diagnoses (they will kill whoever they think have it to them)
– suicide will increase
– privacy rights groups will holler about invasion of privacy
– the tactic is draconian and takes away a person’s health choice. Some people can’t handle a death sentence. That is why cancer diagnosis is optional and not mandatory.
– this will bring back a huge distrust of medical professionals as most Black Folk remember being used as fodder for government experiments … Injected with poison under the guise of immunizations… Sterilized without care..
– False positives. Pulling from the last point, we know the history of the medical profession and our people. Telling people they are sick just to get them to submit to life ending drugs while the corporations turn a profit. It’s always that old story of “he was fine when he went to the doctor.. They told him he was sick, gave him some drugs and he was dead within a month.”
– Denial. People will not believe a positive diagnosis because they simply don’t want to. Some will act like it didn’t happen. Like they didn’t hear the news. Unless they make a person’s status public, how will it control the spread? We have seen many many cases where once people knew, they went out and infected MORE people … On purpose. And if u make it public, then those FEMA camps you see being built all over the country begin to make sense.
I don’t know what good will come from I see a lot of lives being changed, and a populace being divided.
Guess we will all find out together. Whether we want to or not.
