There are drugs now that help extend the life of people with AIDS. Personally, I think thats a bad idea. We already have an AIDS epidemic, and now we help them live longer, possibly spread the disease? I say, let the natural selection do it's job.

Well the only people who would take AIDS meds are people who know they have it, now I would hope that anyone who knew they had AIDS wouldn't be foolish enough and stupid enough to put someone else at risk, and there for wouldn't harm others by living longer.

But I guess some people are just stupid and should be shot.

We don't have the right to decide that for them. If they want to prolong their life, then they have to accept the responsibility of not spreading it further.

I think people using the drugs would probably know better than to spread it-- It's not worth denying people the chance to live longer...

A new drug doesn't even really matter. I want to say that the number of AIDs patients who can't afford any medical treatment is really high, like somewhere around 90% or something.

Well if you know you have aids you damn well (should) know not to engange into any form of sex with somebody who isn't infected. If you can live a few years longer then why not give them that oppertunity. Besides it might bring is closer to a cure so except from a few idiots who would spread it on purpose I see no harm in all this.

They will die horrible deaths when their immune system finishes decaying. If I realised I had the disease i'd sign up for a tour in Iraq in 3 years (or whatever the current conflict is in 2008, when i'd be 17 and could join the Army, if they'd let me in. Otherwise i'd take a gun and go anyways). And what they should do is put some dye in it that changes colors so we would know who has the virus, or assign them parole officers to make sure they don't have sex when non-AIDS/HIV people. And gays get it anyways, no problem for us straights.

That is a blantantly wrong statement, anyone can get AIDs, and everyone needs to use caution. An attitude like that is what makes the disease so deadly.

What the F*?! :wtf: Sorry but you ar either making a sick attempt at a joke or really ignorant and miss-informed. Not all homosexuals have aids and changs that they carry or spread aids aren't much higher either I think (anybody knows of a source to prove/disprove that?).

Is this whole post sarcasm? ^ I'd like to see what you'd ACTUALLY do with your last years alive... I suppose friends and family are out of the question then? You'd just make your way to Iraq? I think that labelling AIDS infected people with some sort of dye is not the answer. It leads to isolation of people and a false set of alarm-- you shouldn't be afraid of someone with AIDS. We should set something up to make sure that they aren't having sex anymore though, but that's too extreme. Education is the key, or else you might as well label everyone with cancer, too, even though there is no reason to be afraid of them. And maybe you've missed out on the 90s, but as it turns out, it's not only "gays" who get them anyway. It can be anybody. It's just more prominent in gay men.
