UGH. I tried to get out of the syphilis/HIV/STD tests, but no. It's required by law. If I refuse the HIV test they will test my baby. Ridiculous, especially since I have to pay for it! Honestly, why don't they just require that I have an MRI just in case I have fill in the blank cancer. It's a lot more likely than me having HIV!
Interesting - I wonder if every state requires this.
