Illinois Repeal Of HIV-Exposure Criminal Law Complete
« on: July 28, 2021, 12:51:45 pm »

Lede:

A decades-old Illinois law that opened HIV-positive people to felony charges for failing to inform partners before unprotected sex was repealed Tuesday, and access to insurance coverage for infertility treatment for LGBTQ couples and would-be single parents was expanded.

Link to story (Chicago Tribune, July 27, 2021):

Summary paragraph:

Previously, Illinois was one of 37 states that criminalized HIV exposure in some form, according to a review last year from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A mix of Democratic- and Republican-controlled states California, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia among them have updated their laws in recent years, but Illinois becomes the first state to fully repeal its law since Texas did so in 1994.
