HIV carriers shouldn’t marry – MP

22/12/08

HIV carriers should not be allowed to marry, in order to avoid having sick children, a top Malaysian politician has been quoted as saying. “Somebody who is very sick like that should not be allowed to get married,” Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, chief minister of northern Perak state was quoted as saying by New Straits Times newspaper. “If there’s any breeding, sorry for having to use that word, the embryo will also carry the same virus. So that is even more unfair because you are actually passing that disease on to the child.”
