by Maggie Young

Alaska has one of the highest STD rates in the United States. 

In hopes of reducing them, Planned Parenthood and supporters rallied for more testing and education.

What we need to do is make people Obligated by law to share their information BEFORE HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH ANYONE if they are aware of their STD Status. Most states you can only prosecute someone if they have AIDS or HIV and jump into bed with you without telling you. STDs that are incurable should join that list and people should stop being so SELFISH. I have been a victim of someone who did not believe they were morally obligated to share their STD status and was extremely surprised 5 months after we started dating and I was diagnosed. There is nothing worse than realizing someone you thought loved you just gave you HPV Genital Warts without believing or trusting that you would've given them the chance had they given you the choice. This is a FOR SURE end of a relationship EVEN if it continues on, you can almost guarantee this persons deceit and denial will constantly be seething from their soul.
