Skip to comments.US: ‘Gay Blood Drive Day’ to call for end of gay blood ban
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.
And their Blood is cursed with the evil they represent.
OMG, I do wish they could climb out of their own heads once in a while. Do none of them work? I am so sick of this everyone who was famous and died was gay. All Gay all the time. Gads I am sick of them. GO BACK IN THE CLOSET!
as if the flood of illegals wasn’t enough
Yea... That’s the ticket.
Political correctness is now more important than the safety of the nation’s blood supply.
Their slogan should be, “Gay blood for gay patients!”
Well, if there ever needed to be a bigger push for bloodless medicine now is that time!
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 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.
Er, not sure why the text in my post turned red, but I’ll give this another go. Here’s the link I posted to the CDC:
Why do they want to donate blood?

So everyone will be infected with the HIV / GAY virus...
“men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error”
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.
The CDC will never allow this to happen.
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!
Political correctness kills
And I bet those illegal immigrants flooding over the border will soon be in the blood supply
Homosexual blood drive.
Prostitute blood drive.
IV drug user blood drive.
Undocumented immigrant blood drive.
Homeless blood drive.
Yeah, that’s it, that’s the ticket!
Obama will soon be pushing to allow infected homosexuals to donate their blood out of “fairness”.
Really? In our highly ideological, politicized Federal Government?
Does it come out rainbow colored?
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.
A study I read recently reported that in no male-homosexual relationship studied had the partners been sexually exclusive for five years or more.
The CDC will never let it happen. Don't be taken in by a story that appears in the Pink. Consider the source, its all drama.
ONE of his partners? Was he monogamous one gay lover at a time?
Their slogan should be, Gay blood for Presidents!
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...
That would be included in my formulation, if Obama needed a transfusion.
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.
The CDC still considers AIDS to be an epidemic. You will never see that reported on the nightly news.
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.
Syphilis, HIV, gonorrhea, HPV warts, chlamydia. Giving blood... It’s just an excuse to say I’m gay to a nurse.
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.
Only they deserve to have rainbow blood — I’m not worthy of such “special” transfusions!
Can you not see the conflict in that statement? You cannot be in a monogamous relationship with multiple partners.
Not no, but hell no.
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”.
Are you sure you can bank your OWN blood? We were told that blood banked for “you” just goes into the “pool.”
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.
I shook my head in horror and disgust as I read the info.
We’re supposed to accept this?!
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.......
