I made the above to express my thoughts on the following (using a drawing from xkcd).
- The Supreme Court of Canada will issue a ruling today on whether it is a crime for people with extremely low levels of HIV to withhold that fact from their sex partners.
- The Supreme Court will be ruling on two separate cases, from Manitoba and Quebec, essentially updating its landmark 1998 ruling on the subject.
- Some critics argue the old ruling is outdated because of medical advances since then in treating the virus that causes AIDS. (via CTV)
This is something I’ve mentioned before and seems to be an international trend.
