I am not comletely against abortion, and I admit, as a male, I am confused about what is right and wrong. However, I do have a beef to pick with some pro-choice activists, and I highlight the word some. Activists sometimes seem so proud of their stance that it almost appears as if they think the actual act of abortion is a good-righteous thing. They blast anti-abortionists/pro-life activists for not being open, but often are unwilling to question their own viewpoint. Perhaps they are merely just portrayed as egotistical and only considerate of thier own bodies. I am not making an arugment against abortion, but I do think it is more than just a matter of women’s rights.

New information from the CDC says ‘blacks’ and ‘gays’ are more likely to be newly infected with HIV. At least this is how it is worded by a CNN article. However, HIV is mostly a lifestyle infection, and so they are only more likely to partake in a risky lifestyle than to actually be infected. A young ‘black,’ ‘gay’ male who does not partake in risky behavior would have the same chances of being infected as any ‘straight,’ ‘white’ male. They are trying to attribute HIV to a group of people rather than to a lifestyle of which those people do not have to be involved. This is futher evidenced by claims such as “AIDS in America continues to be a black disease.” Doing so is a hindrance to society, and to the ‘black’ and ‘gay’ community. If HIV is attributed to lifestyle, maybe they would come to see the unnecessary risks rather than accept the risks. If HIV were to be attributed to lifestyle maybe society as a whole would come to better accept the ‘gay’ community and the ‘black’ community (Citation: CNN).
