City's AIDS Ordinance

August 26, 1985

I am a dental professional and am now forced by an ordinance to be unwise in my medical decisions.

AIDS victims need to be helped, but in specific places with proper and accelerated sterilization techniques and with medical professionals who freely choose to treat them.To force all those in dentistry, not to mention medicine, to expose themselves to blood, saliva, mucus membranes, aerosol spray and endless realms of infection is foolish.

The City Council has not used common sense.
