Criminalization of Knowlingly Transmitting
My Position and Conclusion
I have mixed feelings on whether or not the transmission of AIDS should be a criminal act. I feel that it is morally wrong, and in effect, those who do it are committing murder. There is definitely a valid argument there. However, due to the validity of the arguments against the criminalization of passing AIDS on to others, I am partial to both sides. I agree that it would divert millions of dollars that could be put to better use in research and other programs. I also agree that it would be legally and scientifically impossible to prove intent.
I feel that because of these conflicting ideas that I believe, the best way to resolve the issue would be to make transmitting the virus a criminal act, but not subject to jail time. Instead of wasting the taxpayers money on giving free medical care and room and board to inmates, it should be put towards finding a cure for AIDS. Instead of a jail term, those who transmit the disease should be fined very heavily so as to discourage them from repeating the offense. The money accrued from the fine should then be used for research and other related programs, including helping those that are infected.
