"There is yet another suspected case of HIV infection in the Los Angeles porn industry and another moratorium on film production. This latest outbreak underscores the urgent need for immediate action by government to stop this occupational health hazard from continuing. The claim that HIV testing is an adequate substitute for condom use has once again been proven false. The question remains how many performers must become infected with HIV and other serous STDs before the industry will clear up its act and government will do the right thing. This outrageous disregard for the health and safety of the performers and the community at large is a shameful blot on the reputation of Los Angeles. We call for immediate action by the City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County. The temporary moratorium on filming should become a permanent one until condoms are mandatory. We request an immediate cease and desist order be issued by the County as a public health protection and that all permits for adult films be cancelled by the City until these productions certify that they are using condoms in the production of porn." - Michael Weinstein, AIDS Healthcare Foundation President
