US: ‘Gay Blood Drive Day’ to call for end of gay blood ban
Pink News ^ | 7-7-2014

Posted on 07/07/2014 11:23:16 AM PDT by Citizen Zed

A Gay Blood Drive Day will be held on Friday, to protest the continuing blanket ban on gay and bisexual men donating blood in the US.

The Food and Drug Administration currently imposes a blanket ban on donating blood for all men who have had sex with men, because of the “increased risk” of sexually transmitted diseases.

The ban was initially put in place in the 1980s following the AIDS epidemic, and critics say it does not reflect modern advances in screening technology However, they have faced calls to implement a system that reflects actual risk, as opposed to discriminatory risk.

Why do they want to donate blood?

Because not being able to points out the “not normal” aspect of their lifestyle.

This is just as bad as a Prostitute blood drive. Add all the disease that goes along with it.
Homosexuals are the most promiscuous brand of sexual deviants in the world.
They will have sex with everything and anything and do not have any morals about doing it.

And their Blood is cursed with the evil they represent.

Who would honestly want AIDS blood. I mean, maybe if you were suicidal, but no normal person would want it. And why would you fight and shout so you can donate diseased blood? What benefit do you gain other than to rub people’s faces in your sickness?

This is an incredibly bad idea. I've done the research on this, and the numbers are scary. The CDC's own website states that MSM (men who have sex with men) in the U.S. account for 2% of the population, but 72% of the new HIV/AIDS cases each year. It's listed elsewhere on the CDC website that MSM also account for more than 2/3's of new syphilis infections. Syphilis is still a killer as well.

This isn't about discrimination or "homophobia" or anything else besides sound medical science. It's about protecting the blood supply from a very high risk group of potential donors, end of story.

If the States allow Homosexuals to donate blood I would refuse any type of transfusions.Knowing that they are likely carriers of HIV,Hep-C and Hepatitis.

They aren’t the only ones that can donate blood. Those who have spent time in malarial areas of the world are also prohibited..screening or no screening.
The whole AID’s epidemic was made worse by the lack of screening in the early years. Now there are other blood born diseases that are risk factors..like chagas.

Homosexual men live from 8 to 21 years less than heterosexual men. The average homosexual man has had sex with over 100 other men and nearly 40% admitted to having sex with over 500 other men and they have the list of STDs on their medical records to prove it.

I remember when BILL CLINTON, as governor of Arkansas, killed off lots of hemophiliacs by sending out AIDS tainted blood.

Take SODOMITE BLOOD at your own risk!

I'm excluded too as a Desert Storm veteran because of potential Gulf War Syndrome. I recently inquired if the ban had been lifted and it hasn't. Doesn't bother me. Sure there are gay men who are in monogamous relationships—but there are enormous numbers that are INCREDIBLY promiscuous. You can see how the AIDS spread so quickly in the gay community in the excellent book by Randy Shilts, And the Band Played On. Shilts, by the way, was in a monogamous relationship and disapproved of that lifestyle, but one of his partners wasn't monogamous. Shilts died of AIDS. The safety of the blood supply is paramount. As long as it is prohibitive to test the blood beforehand, I have no problem with the blanket bans, even though I 'm banned as well.

I’ve been donating blood regularly for about 30 years. The Red Cross has never asked for one’s “sexual preferences” when I’ve donated. They do ask whether or not one has ever had sex with another man, used illegal intravenous drugs, or have been incarcerated. They also inform the donater that their screening tests for infection are not 100% accurate. That’s good enough reason to ban homosexually active men from donating blood.

Temporarily.

A study I read recently reported that in no male-homosexual relationship studied had the partners been sexually exclusive for five years or more.

A church friend of my youth who was hemophiliac died of AIDS in 80s because the clotting factor he needed to live was contaminated by this crowd and their perversion. I shall neither forgive nor forget nor will I be cowed by the current PC crowd who would say I’m a hater. So be it...

Tchaikovsky, Schubert, Benjamin Britten, and Aaron Copeland were all reportedly homosexuals.

Tchaikovsky’s music is wonderful. I like Schubert too, I can take or leave Britten, and loathe Copeland’s music(even though he was an American Composer!).

So there you go. I judge a person by their fruits (excuse the pun!) rather than their inward desires.

What are the “fruits” of these “gay” activists? Politically Correct Speech, perverted parades, people losing their jobs for stupid reasons, the degradation of education, the corruption of children, and DISEASE.

I don’t judge them for who they are.

I judge them by their “contributions” to society.

If you are not getting emergency surgery, bank away a few units of your own blood. Otherwise you don’t know what you’re getting. I had an aortic graft done and got my 2 units back on the day I got released.

This should be good. Ask a homosexual what type of blood transfusion he/she wants - gay or non-gay blood. I’ll bet dollars to donuts that they’ll ask for the safer non-gay blood.

Not that I am a Jehovah’s Witness or a Christian Scientist... but if something happens and in order to live I need to be injected with blood or plasma... I think I may as well die.

As it is, I refuse to be a part of the government/medical industrial complex... and will not seek out a doctor for any reason... so long as my medical records may be digitized and perused by anyone that wants to take away my 2A rights.

I can understand this, the more people infected with AIDS, the more powerful the sexual deviants’ agenda will become. Especially once the “openly gay” homosexuals and “bisexuals” start pumping their blood into “the children”.

Those pushing for it should volunteer on the spot for a transfusion of ‘gay’ blood.

Note: HIV may take weeks or longer to show a positive result so testing might not exactly reliable. FYI.

Yes I am sure.
You are given the tag number to verify.
The blood bank is responsible to ensure your blood is transferred to the hospital blood bank the day of surgery.

You are told if your blood is not needed during surgery and you do not need it post-op that it would remain in the hospital blood supply for general use.

Thank you for your Desert Storm service.

I’m excluded because I was stationed in Germany more than thirty years ago, 1981-83. The window of exclusion is 1980-1990 and it still hasn’t been lifted.

I later got back in the military & was giving blood right after 9-11 until this poppycock Mad Cow disqualifier was imposed. Felt silly lining up with everyone in my unit at the bloodmobile & then getting turned away, no Coke or cookies for you, pal.

And now the faggies are at it again. Grrr.......
