The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has launched a petition drive for a ballot measure that would require condom usage in all porn produced in Los Angeles County.
"The county has a primary responsibility of protecting the public health," foundation President Michael Weinstein told The Times. Weinstein asserted that the county Board of Supervisors has "steadfastly refused" to take action against porn producers who don't use condoms in filming, putting performers at risk of HIV and other diseases. "So we will take it to the voters," Weinstein said. The ballot measure would "require producers of adult films to obtain a public health permit from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and pay a permit fee" to fund enforcement. The measure is modeled on health permit requirements for tattoo shops, massage parlors and bathhouses. The county would be authorized to revoke permits of film producers violating the ordinance, and violations could result in civil fines or misdemeanor charges.The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer, who has repeatedly called for the criminalization of all gay sex acts, is applauding Weinstein's words.
The porn industry, as you might guess, is riddled with STDs. Homosexual activists themselves are trumpeting loudly and clearly that gay sex is such a public health menace that gay porn actors are unacceptably exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases every time they film a scene without protection. "There are thousands of STDs in this industry," said Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, adding that jurisdictions pass the issue around like a hot potato. "It's the ick factor. They don't want to deal with this because it's sex, and because it's porn," he said. Wow. There is a homosexual activist talking about the “ick” factor of gay sex like he was Mike Huckabee or something.The AHF must collect 200,000 signatures by June 5th in order for the item to appear on the November ballot in Los Angeles County.
