Mississippi-Bigotry Kills

It was recently brought to My attention that living in Mississippi with HIV is like having a Curse.
Why you might ask? This is the United States of America, and we are after all a progressive country, and take health and safety measures to avoid epidemics, right?
Mississippi has refused federal funding for those infected with HIV which would allow them to receive Medicaid, in fact the state sued the Government to block them from giving the state funds. The state has the highest death rate amongst any other state for HIV related Deaths.
The state also refuses to educate their youth on HIV Prevention and Teen Pregnancy, instead teaching only abstinence only curriculum.
Ignorance Kills. Bigotry is Ignorance. They are Murdering People with their Ignorant Bigotry.
