One might say that if someone gets syphillis, it's there own fault anyway. AIDS is also an STD, although there are other ways to get it such as blood transfusions or being born to someone with AIDS in which the patient would be considered "not at fault." What if someone got syphillis from birth? Let's walk for the cure!
Actually, I think it's curable by antibiotics if I am not mistaken, but what about a syphillis vaccine?
