Guess who else can get AIDS if you shoot drugs.
Your baby can.
Babies born to people who ever shot drugs have AIDS more than other babies. You don’t want a baby born to die.
When you shoot drugs and share, if the needle has the AIDS virus on it you could get AIDS. You Can’t tell if a needle is clean just by looking. You can’t tell if a person has AIDS just by looking. If you want a baby, protect your baby. Have the AIDS test first, both you and your partner. Be sure you and your partner haven’t been infected before you get pregnant. Until then, help protect yourself and your partner from AIDS by using condoms.
And get into treatment. It could save your life and your baby’s life.
STOP SHOOTING UP AIDS.
GET INTO DRUG TREATMENT.
