    One baby step at a time; let’s be grateful for that. Imagine if you had HIV+ status.

    About time too.

  4. “long way to go before the ‘land of the free’ can live up to the name.”

    You said it Rose… the US is all rhetoric but not much substance when it comes to human rights. Ironically we have more freedoms and civil liberties here in the EU, but you don’t see us ranting on about it!

    Even contemplating a ban on someone with a disease from entering a country is an affront to the liberties they claim to uphold, let alone implementing one…. so really they should not be expecting too many thanks for rescinding it.
