Elton John on the Price Paid by HIV-Positive Prisoners
September 17, 2012
"If you want to know what it was like to live with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s, state prisons in Alabama or South Carolina in 2012 offer some tragic examples. In the '80s, people infected with the AIDS virus faced horrendous, daily discrimination and injustice. Today, Alabama and South Carolina are blatantly and dangerously discriminating against HIV-positive prisoners. It's a policy that simply makes no sense." (Sir Elton John, The Washington Post, 9/16)
