Soap Operas and AIDS: From Tragedies to Triumph
Robin Gives Birth to Emma; Marries Patrick on General Hospital, 2008
Much of this post has been about the horrors of AIDS— death, lost love, fear, etc. It's only fitting the final clips be about hope. Much like how real-life HIV patients, such as basketball legend Magic Johnson, have managed to lead long, productive lives, our beloved Robin has gone on to find love again— not once, but twice — give birth to a healthy baby and marry cocky-yet-well intentioned, recovering skirt chaser Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) on General Hospital. Now if the couple, affectionately deemed "Scrubs" by their vocal fans, can just vanquish that psychotic tramp Dr. Lisa Niles (Brianna Brown), they can get back to the business of showing you can be in treatment for HIV and still have your Happily Ever After.
