In Texas, I had to be tested for HIV while pregnant, by law. Guess that's not the case in MN. Anyway, it's not super easy to transmit HIV or other diseases via breast milk. This lady should probably chill about that part of it.
Santa is an elitist mother fucker -- giving expensive shit to rich kids and nothing to poor kids.
The woman who breasted must have been a real skank if she had hepatitis and HIV. I picture a real beauty.
Excuse me while I vomit, lady, overreact much? Oh, noes, I didn't get to film Cody's perfect homecoming!
That said, even at the thought of another woman breastfeeding my kid I would be beyond livid. Don't care if she's healthy or not, I would want heads to roll for this.
What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?
As delightful as denigrating a community of people with a health issue.
A health issue resulting from lifestyle issues. I don't know the woman in question and I don't know what form of hepatitis she has. If they fear she might have transmitted it then I suspect it's B or C. Those and HIV generally result from lifestyle choices. Right? If I were the parent I would immediately want to know her drug history. I actually wouldn't be too worried about the viruses but I would demand the mother be drug tested. Did I denigrate an entire community with that statement?
I didn't hear anything about the woman having a disease, so I'm positive the testing is just a precaution. But presence of certain diseases today are exactly why we have standard precautions in healthcare. You are to assume that anyone/everyone could possibly be HIV/Hepatitis/etc. positive until proven otherwise.
Regardless of how clean-cut vs. dirty and skanky they look, I might add. There are hookers and junkies in existence who've managed to avoid these diseases and there are housewives, elderly and children who have tested positive.
So yeah, I'd be a little nervous until at least two tests on my baby came back negative, no matter how nice and respectable a person she looked like.

I admit I misinterpretted the article and assumed that there was some evidence of illness to require the ongoing testing. But presuming 'lifestyle choices' as responsible for contracting HIV or hep is exceptionally small minded and pathetic. It's as if all of the education on these diseases since the early 80s never existed. Small minded bigotry makes me sad.
