23 weeks... isn't that far enough along in the justational period to remove the twins? If she's HIV positive, it doesn't necessarily mean the twins are yet... Would consideration be given to removing the twins now to prevent transmission?

Women need to protect themselves. Because these men out here are dogs. They don't care at all. Women if you have a boyfriend he is having sex with other women too. You are not the only one. Always remember this.
True and vice versa. Everyone need to be careful out here.

he knew he had it from day one when he got sick and was hospitalized in 2002 the article says so. Also you are correct the legal system will take it's course and he will be held responsible for what he has done. All he had to do was open his mouth and say something. What's a few words to say to someone who you are engaged to marry and then follow through with the ceremony knowing what disease he had in his body. If she had never got pregnant she would have never known his condition until it was possibly too late and she was dead. I just pray that God put's up a shield over those babies and protect them.

This is horrible. Did he get it after she was pregnant? They need to give more details, other than that this is sad. Damn this is fucked up. If she has it then the babies have to have it. Isnt it tru that you can have aids for awhile without actually knowing?
They did give more details, you just didn't read it. It clearly stated that "he contracted the virus in 2002", she is 23 weeks pregnant! You also may want to read up on somethings too, because it never stated that he has AIDS, he has HIV, which is the virus that can cause AIDS. So yes, it is messed up because although she should have been doing something to protect herself and her babies, he knew since 2002 that he had contracted HIV so basically he was trying to get her infected. The fine of $5000 is ridiculous. His fine would have been higher than that had he committed a crime against an animal!

ummm HIV originated in Africa. It's not a 'white' disease. It has hit the black community hard on account of drug use and down low men who cheat on their women with men.

This is a horrible situtation for the mother and babies, but she is just as responsible for contracting this disease as the man is for giving it to her. Before she spread her legs, she should have ran down to the health department and had both of them get a FREE HIV test. If they were in the heat of the moment, then she should have been prepared and had a condom around and the next day get on down to the health department with him in tow.

And before anyone jumps on me, yes I did make my boyfriends get tested and I always kept condoms on hand. That might sound a bit extreme, but I ain't serving a life sentence for a little bit of fun. You can't trust anyone!

When did half of the black population get HIV? Most of new infections may be Black but half of Blacks having it are two different things. Black men have sex with more than Black women, aren't White women worried too. Stop saying stupid stuff and learn your facts. HIV negative and loving it.
PLEASE, I agree with you... for some weird reason "some" people that post on this forum seem to think crime, diseases, hatred etc only happens to one race, one community. When will they learn... or the bigger question >>> do they want to.

Ok i'm tired of reading about myself and all these negative comments. I was tested October 2006 after being in the hopsital with a illness and the test was negative. I asked him over and over again have you been tested and he always told me yes. If i had known this about him from day one all of this wouldn't be going on right now. So before you judge or try to come to your own conclusions just ask and maybe you will get an answer! Also from a previous comment we are married and have been since Agust 4, 2007. You can't believe everything you see or hear in the news all they did was disect the police report and took out facts they wanted to expose to the public.
