A new survey was published yesterday by HCD Research showing that a large majority of physicians and the general public favor MANDATORY HIV testing.
The survey revealed that among the general public:
— 63% of Americans believe that mandatory, federally funded HIV testing would improve the overall health of the U.S. population
— 60% indicated that the associated health care benefits of mandatory, federally funded HIV testing outweigh the social implications
— 40% indicated that the social implications of mandatory, federally funded HIV testing outweigh the associated health care benefits
Hat tip on this one goes to Charging Rhino. And Ted has his own very strong thoughts on the prospects.
First comes the “mandatory testing”.
Next comes the databases.
Followed by armed raids, and “…rounding up the usual suspects”.
From there it’s tattoos and “legal” sanctions.
Then the “camps”.
…From my cold, dead hands.
Well, I’m not so sure. I haven’t had to think about this…. so I’d like to open up to comments and see what y’all think. This is a toughie.
Also, an enterprising reader might want to find out more about HCD Research. Follow the money, as they say…
