25. This should be a human rights issue, not a medical one.
This subject has become so muddled and cloudy, the ultimate answer is that every person should have the right to decide what they want to do to their own body, however this will be used as another excuse for people to force their own opinions on other people who may not want it done. AIDS needs a vaccine, or a culling. We're close on the first and don't have the stomach for the second.
