15 years ago I'd say no but the advancements in treatment are incredible and babies don't necissarily get it. As long as its done safely.

Even if the mom know she will not live to see her baby grow up or could pass HIV to the baby?

I personally don't think so, because they can pass it on to baby. But, it isn't my life, body, or choice. I just know I wouldn't.

Um that isn't something anyone can answer - Those that have tried to say, No they shouldn't be allowed to procreate due to diseases they carry, have been labeled as monsters who want to control others and are said to basically be like Hitler wanting a master RACE of only perfect humans who carry no diseases - Till someone can figure out how to do so ethically there will continue to babies born who are destined to suffer because of a "mothers right to do as she please, regardless of the quality of life the child might be forced to suffer"

Amazing how grimly we hold on to our misery, the energy we burn fueling our anger. Amazing how one moment, we can be snarling like a beast, then a few moments later, forgetting what or why. Not hours of this, or days, or months, or years of this... But decades. Lifetimes completely used up, given over to the pettiest rancor and hatred. Finally, there is nothing here for death to take away. (Henry Chinaski )
