There were more than 50 demonstrations planned as part of the National Gay Blood Drive in various U.S. cities on Friday. The drive was planned to help draw attention to the number of potential blood donors who are automatically disqualified due to their sexual orientation. In addition to men who have sex with men, women are disqualified from giving blood if within the last 12 months they have had sex with a man who at any point since 1977 has sex with another man.
The FDA's decades-long ban stared during the AIDS crisis and restricts any man, who has had sex with another man since 1977, from donating blood.
In recent years as HIV testing has improved the policy has come under fire for being discriminatory and outdated. In June the American Medical Association voted to oppose the ban....
Even after the angels blinded the sodomites oppressing Lot's household prior to that city's destruction, they STILL wearied themselves trying to get to Lot's door rather than fleeing in the face of such overwhelming rebuke.
Makes one wonder if today's sodomites have similar degrees of stubbornness regarding their moral state. Not even caring, evidently, that a lift on the ban could endanger the blood supply.
I served in the U.S. Army in Europe duing the 1980's and as a consequence I am prohibited from dontating blood due to 'Mad Cow Disease' of all things. It's nothing to protest over! As long as aides is part of the homosexual life-style they must be prohibited. The blood supply must remain disease free!!!
