Federal health officials are urging everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 to get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care.

But now they're saying that everyone between 13 and 64 should get tested, as if it's now somehow gotten easier to contract the virus.
It still takes weeks or even months for the virus to show up in standard blood panels. Additionally, false-positives are common and could leave someone devastated thinking they have the disease before taking the test again after a few weeks.
If you’re in a heterosexual monogamous relationship, there’s absolutely ZERO need for an HIV test. This is a disgusting ploy by our government and the media.
It never ceases to amaze me that the very people who wouldn’t dare let tap water touch their lips or who begin coughing uncontrollably when near the slightest whiff of tobacco smoke don’t give a damn about homosexuals spreading AIDS or about getting ink injected under their skin for a tattoo.
This is conditioning. It is the mainstreaming of aberrant behavior.
That being said it is even very difficult to get HIV by most forms of sex. Drug needles and anal sex is about it-blood contamination. Even infection rate by oral sex, semen contact is only .04%
I’ve looked into adopting babies with HIV from other countries. Surprise, there are babies born IN THE USA with HIV! Yes, more people should be tested. Especially sexually active (even just with your man/husband) Latinas and black women.
No, people not I risk groups don’t need testing. But there are good, religious married women in the above groups who get it, don’t know it, and pass it to their unborn.
The same government who is discouraging at risk populations from getting proven life saving mammograms and PSA tests because they are being done “too frequently” now is telling us that everyone between 13 and 64 should have regular HIV testing just because.
And what do they plan on doing if everyone gets this? I don’t trust ‘em.
Isn’t it great not to trust the intent of your gov’t? Its not like they’ve never done anything to have me lose this trust or question the motivation...eh?
I didn’t want to quote anything out of my sphere of knowledge. I knew the contraction rate was low for normal, heterosexual sex.
Most doctor groups are now saying these test are done too frequently. Lot of these "frequent test" arose from lawyers torts cases...docs afraid of getting sued so they did every test every year to cover themselves.
we wouldnt want the true high risk people to feel stigmatized by being singled out now, would we?
this is like the TSA- submit everyone to useless instrusive procedure to be “PC”
And who is responsioble for the damage if a 13 yr old gets a false positive and commits suicide?
Isnt it great not to trust the intent of your govt? Its not like theyve never done anything to have me lose this trust or question the motivation...eh?
We are being conditioned for Obamacare.
I feel certain, that if obamacare is fully implemented, we WILL take any dang test that the government tells us to - to “keep down costs”.
Everyone has AIDS!
AIDS AIDS AIDS!
AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS!
Everyone has AIDS!
And so this is the end of our story
And everyone is dead from AIDS
It took from me my best friend
My only true pal
My only bright star (he died of AIDS)
Well Im gonna march on Washington
Lead the fight and charge the brigades
Theres a hero inside of all of us
Ill make them see everyone has AIDS
My father (AIDS!)
My sister (AIDS!)
My uncle and my cousin and her best friend (AIDS AIDS AIDS!)
The gays and the straights
And the white and the spades
Everyone has AIDS!
My grandma and my dog ol blue (AIDS AIDS AIDS)
The pope has got it and so do you (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
Cmon everybody we got quilting to do (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
We gotta break down these baricades, everyone has
AIDS! x 20
this is like the TSA- submit everyone to useless instrusive procedure to be PC
Exactly. A local TV station where I live runs abstinence ads (cartoons) and cites that group of people for "high risk". The particular group in the ad is not LGBT. But it has the highest HIV rate in the country.
That gets me too. I am not involved in the risky behaviors which spread HIV. So why should I be routinely tested?
“Unlike other cities where the at-risk population might be concentrated among intravenous drug users or men who have sex with men, Washington has a very mixed epidemic, with a huge burden falling on heterosexual African Americans. Officials said 90 percent of all women with HIV are black. Pappas estimated that 20 percent to 30 percent of the Districts HIV-positive population is probably walking around infected and dont know it, he said.”
the HIV infection rate for black heterosexual women in DC is estimated at 12%
I can remember back when that rate in Zimbabwe was used to predict a pandemic
So the real need is to HIV test minority teenagers (12 and up) and anyone who has sex with them, from poverty infected areas, maybe save a few lives
My hat is off to the homos who have played this farce brilliantly since 1976. They duped millions and raked in millions on a totally fraudulent basis. And now we have same sex marriage and kindergarten kids being taught how to slip a condom on a banana. Good grief what we let these sleaze get away with right under our very noses. El stupido!
