Obama urges all Americans to get tested for AIDS/HIV By Michael O'Brien - 06/25/10 03:24 PM ET

President Barack Obama urged all Americans on Friday to be tested for HIV.

Obama released a statement this afternoon marking National HIV Testing Day on Sunday, and encouraged people to get tested to learn their HIV status, the virus that contributes to AIDS.

"As we mark this day, I would like to renew my call for all Americans to help reduce the risk of infection by getting tested for HIV and learning their HIV status," Obama said in a statement.

"And research shows that people who know their status take better care of themselves and take steps to reduce the risk of transmitting HIV to others," he added. "That is why it is so important that people get tested."

Obama noted the advances in research and treatment of HIV and AIDS since the late 1980s and early 1990s, when AIDS was highly stigmatized and seen as an almost-certain death sentence.

He also called on philanthropic and faith-based groups, among other groups, to get involved in helping to fight AIDS.

"[A]ll of us have a responsibility to reduce our risk and know our status, to continue to support those already affected by this disease, and to fight the stigma and discrimination people still face," he said. "So on this National HIV Testing Day, let us all recommit to do our part to help stop the spread of HIV and AIDS."

Obama should likely be worried about AIDS.

Completely absurd and most likely an attempt by our first bisexual , drug using president to mainstream his activities.
This is like asking all Americans to take a pregnancy test .
And who would pay for this ridiculous waste of medical resources ?
Oh wait..let me guess.

Well if that suggestion that those who live a gay lifestyle are permitted to give blood, then maybe all people should be.

Comrade Hussein:Yes,of course all of *your* supporters should be tested.And knowing your ilk as well as I do I'd say that Michelle would be wise to get tested...regularly.

But I'll take a rain check because those who follow what,even 40 years ago,was considered moral,respectable behavior,have *very* little to fear.Particularly if they've never had a blood transfusion.

It wouldn’t surprise me if BO/BS uses this as precursor to make it mandatory with some manufactured crisis and use it as a scheme to accuse anyone who opposes him and his fellow socialists as being infected and therefore must be isolated from the population under the false pretense of doing so to eradicate the disease.

I'm pretty sure the wife and I are non-carriers. I'll pass.

I'm pretty sure Obama is an idiot, but that is something most everyone else knows, too. I don't think idiocy is contagious, but it might be hereditary.

and since he has been screwing the rest of America for the last 18 months... this is sound advice.

Him first. And I want to be there when he tries to explain to Michelle why he feels the need to get tested.

I grilled some steaks yesterday, does that put me at risk? This morning I drank some coffee! Now I’m really worried!

Will someone please publish a list of specific actions/behaviors that cause AIDS?

“He also called on philanthropic and faith-based groups, among other groups, to get involved in helping to fight AIDS.”

Last I looked, faith-based groups do fight AIDS. They teach abstinence pre- and post-marriage and fidelity during marriage. They teach to avoid high-risk behavior like drug abuse and casual sex. They teach to have God-centered morals and avoid takign advantage of others. They teach to give to the poor and minister to the sick. I would venture to say such practices and teachings have avoided much more AIDS than sex education or safe sex practices or treatments combined.

So which Obama contributor is in the business of doing AIDS/HIV testing?

Always follow the money with these people. Underneath their Ivy League veneer they’re just Chicago alderman.

“Obama urges all Americans to get tested for AIDS/HIV”

Given the circles he runs in, one can understand how he views America as being peopled with needle sharing sodomites.

Omoslem should urge Larry Sinclair to get tested for AIDS, since he gave Larry AIDS in the back of that limousine the night they smoked crack.

I’ll get one tomorrow, but I get tested every time I give blood. My local blood bank is having a pre-4th-of-July drive this weekend to increase their supply of type O blood. BTW, blood banks don’t want people to donate blood if they belong to high risk groups.

I don't have anal sex and I don't shoot up and I am faithful to my spouse.
Maybe he is just worried about himself.

Didn’t Michelle say that she and Obama got tested during their trip to Hawaii?

Maybe he doesn’t realize that many of us don’t live a lifestyle similar to that of his friends and cohorts!
