Nurses being put to death for spreading HIV..... or not.
« on: December 19, 2006, 10:23:11 AM »
While I originally (first paragraph) thought YEAH they deserve it!  Then.... I read on, this could have far reaching implications.  Imagine nurses not wanting to treat patients for fear of the death penalty!!!

TRIPOLI, Libya Dec 19, 2006 (AP) A court convicted six foreign health workers Tuesday on charges of deliberately infecting 400 children with the AIDS virus and sentenced them to death, setting off shouts of joy in Tripoli.

The verdict, which will be automatically referred to Libya's Supreme Court, drew quick condemnation from European nations, which have charged that the five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor were being made scapegoats. A Western medical study, released too late for the trial, said the infections occurred before the medical workers came to Libya.

LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

I read the study where it definitely supports their innocence.  Hopefully this will be overturned.

I also believe these people are innocent.  This whole thing is horrifying.

How depressing... the fate of the defendants and the just plain ignoring of medical and scientific evidence.  I hope we (the US) uses our leverage, as we generally do, to try and help 'em out.
