A man who shoots up can be very giving.
He can give you and your baby AIDS.
Most babies with AIDS are born to mothers who shot drugs or who sleep with men who have.
Babies with AIDS are born to die.
If you’re thinking of having a baby you and your partner need to get tested for AIDS. Only get pregnant when you’re sure both of you aren’t infected. Until then help protect yourself and your partner by using condoms.
And if your man shoots drugs, help him get into treatment now. It could save three lives, his, yours and your baby’s.
STOP SHOOTING UP AIDS.
GET INTO DRUG TREATMENT.
