A bill that will further stigmatize and criminalize people living with HIV/AIDS in Kentucky is on the move. The House Judiciary Committee was divided as the Fairness Campaign and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Indiana and Kentucky testified against HIV Criminalization House Bill 193. Needing 11 votes to pass committee, HB193 barely squeaked by with 12.
Now, it’s posted for passage on Tuesday, February 20 in the full House, but it can still be stopped or amended!
