Given that the risk to the baby contracting HIV is less than 2 percent, if the mother takes proper precautions (medicine, c-section), do you think a woman with HIV should have a baby?

definately. It should be up to the person who is infected to do what is right and to be allowed to live as normal a life as is possible. We dont chastise anyone who has increased risks for other problems for trying to have children so we shouldnt be against HIV infected mothers.
