Moreover: what rights are we talking about? The right to life? The right to be free of pain? The right to food? Except the right to free speech ? all the other

We already know enough about AIDS to prevent its spread, but ignorance, complacency, fear and bigotry continue to stop many from taking adequate precautions.
