So, as I suspected, you both confirm your preference for the death of people with Aids (option A) rather than prevention (option B).
Correct?

Nearly right - replace AIDS with disease, famine, drought, flood etc and as far as I'm concerned you would be right. It's one reason I replaced dying of AIDS with Death but of course you had to bring it back in trying to make out that I have something against people with AIDS as opposed to other diseases etc which I don't. Sorry if I didn't make the distinction clear enough for you.

Sorry, BB. So you didn't mean to suggest it was just people with Aids for whom you prefer death over prevention, you prefer death for all those suffering from "disease, famine, drought, flood etc". I stand corrected...

So the choice is to die or be immortal? So far as I can tell, we all are going to die, and immortality is not an option, so what's all the fuss about?

"At its most basic level, marriage is a union between a man and a woman for the purpose of procreation and mutual support, or love."

I assumed that the medical would be to prove fertility and potence, not as a check on diseases. But the thread moved on ...

I can confirm they need a medical certificate for marriage in Cairo which must be obtained at a hospital and signed byu a doctor and hospital main boss, but also I can assure you there was no medical check just a question.....have you had any operations if you answered no then it was signed........it cost around 5LE for the paper and you needed 2 picutres.
