Homopoz:
If she knew that she was poz and continued practicing unsafe sex without disclosing her status to her partner, then it is a crime.

There are two basic types of laws "out there" in some parts of the world. 
Some laws make non-disclosure a crime, whether there is transmission, or not. Whether there is safe sex, or not. All kinds of variations.
Other laws make hiv transmission a crime.
There is a lot of complicated overlap in these laws.

Where do you live?  You realise that people all over the world read this forum and contribute.  Laws about HIV are not universal, you are aware of that.... ?   But they are universally stupid. 

Why don't you read a bit about the situation around the world and also in your locale, wherever that is.

So when you say "it is a crime", be specific.  You mean, that is your opinion?  Or, is that the law where you live?

I live in the USA, and I understand that there are many different ferent laws in different parts of the world. I think that when someone who is a poz knowingly hides the status and puts person 's life in danger of being infected is a crime.

I live in the US as well, and the laws vary widely from state to state. In many states, transmission does not even need to occur before a person is prosecuted.

In some states. sexual behavior that has never transmitted HIV such as performing oral sex and kissing have been grounds for prosecution.

In some states, spitting on an arresting officer is considered Assault With a Deadly Weapon if the person is positive.

I am completely and utterly against prosecution for HIV transmission between consenting adults who choose to forego condoms.

H-poz... while you grapple with the implications of your opinion, keep in mind that its a personal choice to have unprotected sex. it's each persons responsibility to protect themselves.


added: my spit is a deadly assault weapon?! I LOVE THAT!!!!!!
