I fail to see the tragedy here other then the death of morals and the
failure of parents as you say. I have heard no reports of forceable rape
therefore all the sex was consentual. That being the case every infected
person assumed and implicitly accepted the risks. However, I suppose one
could argue that the youngest are not responsible. After all, abstenence,
the only 100% effective safegard against HIV is ignored and indeed
discouraged by liberal educators, the media and politicians. While
promiscuity is encouraged with free condoms ( I believe there is a PA school
district passing out condoms to 6th graders) and teens are given a false
sense of security to satisfy political correctness. There is the real
tragedy, but you will never read about that, instead there will be increased
demand for money to find a cure for a disease, 93%  the spread of which,
could be stopped overnight simply with moral behavior.
