RV Park Rejects Kid With HIV

The ACLU is battling an Alabama RV park for banning a 2-year old boy with HIV from using their swimming pool, a violation of the Americans with Disablities Act. The child's foster mother had mentioned at the park's office that the boy had HIV and management told the family that the child could not use the pool, shower, or common areas of the park without a note from his doctor.

Well into the third decade of AIDS, ignorance and discrimination continues. And don't make careless assumptions about Alabama, these outrages happen everywhere, every day.
