Only in L.A.: Angelenos Discuss Condoms in Porn on Twitter
This election year, many Americans all over the country find themselves waiting in grueling, monotonous polling lines to exercise their voting rights. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, listed somewhere below the slot for the presidential race is Measure B, an initiative that seeks to make mandatory the use of condoms in porn. Whether or not the initiative will have any pervasive effect on L.A. if passed, Angelenos are surely getting a kick out of the fact that the measure is even on their ballots.
Twitter has been blowing up with their responses lately:
Weird that this LA measure for condoms in porn doesn't stipulate "unless performers are in a committed, loving relationship built on trust."— Emily Maya Mills (@emilymayamills) November 6, 2012
In my first election ever, I will be voting on the very serious issue of whether or not porn stars should have to wear condoms. #nojoke— Jacqueline Emerson (@jackie_emerson) November 6, 2012
Los Angeles. This is the most important election of our lifetime please please please vote no on condoms in porn.— Moshe Kasher (@moshekasher) November 6, 2012

April Valentine died at Centinela Hospital. Her daughter was born by emergency C-section. She'd gone into the pregnancy with a plan, knowing Black mothers like herself were at higher risk.
