'AIDS Bills Don't Fare Well'

October 15, 1987

I see ("No Place for Doctors to Hide From AIDS," Op-Ed Page, Sept. 21) that for some in the medical establishment the Hippocratic Oath has given way to the Oath of Homophobia. It goes something like this: "I will serve anyone in need as long as it is not a homosexual with AIDS."

Considering that the risk of catching AIDS is infinitesimal for those employing the proper precautions, it remains the task of the medical societies and the courts to remind these people of the duties implied in their commitment to medicine.
