Planned Parenthood: You Don’t Need To Tell Partners If You Have HIV

Planned Parenthood is not a “women’s health” organization. It is an organization committed to mass murder and the profiteering that can come from such murders. It is a ghoulish organization that prides itself on its “counseling,” but which offers a stacked-deck to overwhelmed young mothers-to-be to highlight the convenience of abortion while downplaying the options of adoption and even keeping the child.

Now, the infamous organization that traffics in baby parts can boast of another shameful practice: they advise young people with HIV to not tell their partners about their infection as laws that require people to inform their partners of their HIV status, the organization alleges, are discriminatory.

LifeSiteNews reports on the criminal conspiracy:

The International Planned Parenthood Federation published in 2010 a guide for youth infected with HIV titled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” The pamphlet is being introduced overseas in new areas, recreating controversy by teaching that those with HIV do not have to disclose their infection status to those they could infect. HIV is the virus that leads to Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

“People living with HIV have the right to decide if, when, and how to disclose their HIV status,” the brochure instructs, despite U.S. law to protect the health of potential infectees.

This flies in the face of sound medical advice, according to the world-respected Mayo Clinic. Mayo Clinic medical experts write that in addition to using condoms, infected persons should “[t]ell your sexual partners if you have HIV. It’s important to tell anyone with whom you’ve had sex that you’re HIV-positive. Your partners need to be tested and to receive medical care if they have the virus. They also need to know their HIV status so that they don’t infect others.”

The Planned Parenthood instructional booklet even goes so far as to advise young people to break the law. “Your decision about whether to disclose may change with different people and situations. You have the right to decide if, when, and how to disclose your HIV status.”

Planned Parenthood considers the law to be discriminatory. “Some countries have laws that say people living with HIV must tell their sexual partner(s) about their status before having sex, even if they use condoms or only engage in sexual activity with a low risk of giving HIV to someone else. These laws violate the rights of people living with HIV by forcing them to disclose or face the possibility of criminal charges.”

Planned Parenthood continues, “There are lots of people who don’t mind whether their partner is HIV negative or positive” and tells teens that it’s their right to “experience sexual pleasure” and that “you’ve done nothing wrong.”

In 35 states, it is illegal to knowingly expose another person to the deadly disease without consent.

This is shocking (even for Planned Parenthood). While adults should be able to choose their sexual partners, this is predicated upon a good faith belief that the partner is willing to divulge information that may cost lives.

It is not, altogether, unsurprising that Planned Parenthood has taken this stance, however. Aside from the obvious disregard for human life for which they are known, the left is infinitely more concerned with the plight of the supposedly “discriminated” than they are with the safety and wellbeing of society as a whole.

Truly, only a sociopath would believe this is okay; lucky for sociopaths, there is an organization dedicated to the promotion of selfishness.
