San Francisco Presses Feds to End Ban on Gay Male Blood Donations
In 1983, as the AIDS epidemic was raging, gays and bisexual men were banned from donating blood by the FDA. Now San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener has introduced a resolution to end the ban, and the city board is expected to approve it.
Weiner told KTVU in San Francisco that the city has to make a statement to the FDA that times and technology are changing. He charged, ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs discriminatory, it has no basis in public health. All donated blood is heavily tested, and it‚Äôs depriving our country of a lot of blood that could be donated to help save peoples‚Äô lives.‚ÄĚ
A lesbian who has been donating blood for thirty years snapped to KTVU, ‚ÄúI think it's time for the government to take its regulatory self and shove it, to tell you the truth. If the blood is clean, we need it. Use it.‚ÄĚ...
One way to "ease" the pain of sin is to have others involved with you. The Affordable Care Act is not about health care but rather about control and putting all groups together. Same with this blood issue.
Just go on the cdc web site and read who most likely will contact HIV. The same standards set up in the 90's still apply ,especially with so many young gay men not caring a whit about the results of their behavior on the rest of society.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs discriminatory, it has no basis in public health."
They have fought for this before; believing it's their right. I don't care what error prone medical science say or technogy can do, I don't trust it and wouldn't want a sodomites blood running through my veins. I see it like this: A person gets a transfusion and is pumped full with Sodomite blood. Unbeknownst to anyone, the blood is tainted; it's diseased. Nobody caught it, technology erred, or whatever the case. Now, that person sleeps with their spose, girlfriend, or sleeps around, passing the disease around. All of the people it's being passed to are heterosexual and have no reason to ever think they need to be tested for HIV/AIDS. So, an already uncurable disease gets spread by even more people as it spreads to people who would have never normally contracted it.
