Takes A Position
L.A. Shanti has announced that it opposes mandatory HIV testing of newborn babies. "Instead of mandating testing, we should be encouraging education and counseling," said Sue Crumpton, Executive Director of L.A. Shanti. "We at Shanti believe in empowering individuals to make their own choices -- not in letting the government dictate personal health decisions."
L.A. Shanti provides services especially for women with HIV, including the Women For Positive Living weekend seminar, a free weekend of information, education and support.
