Australian PM discriminates HIV Patients
Apr 15, 2007
Dear Dr. Bob,
What do you think about this latest news report about John Howard, the Aussie PM. I have pasted the link here : http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/04/13/aidsaustralia.ap/index.html
Is this man worthy of being the PM of a civilized nation like Australia ? I guess NOT! I dont have HIV, but have suffered for many months thinking that I had the virus. Thanks to your encouraging words that helped me make up my mind to get tested. During those fearful months, I was always on your website and found out that HIV is just another disease like cancer etc. Why should these B*stards discriminate people with HIV Dr. Bob ?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Most discrimination results from fear and ignorance. Unfortunately 26 years into this pandemic, there really isn't any justification for ignorance or irrational fear pertaining to HIV/AIDS! John Howard is a lot like Bush, except Dubya (AKA The Shrub or King George the W) is even dumber! Wanna trade? Whoever would have guessed that two villages could be missing their idiots at the same time?!?
