Liberals Push Gay Blood in Risky Policy Change
Accuracy in Media ^ | March 15, 2010 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on 04/04/2010 7:24:45 AM PDT by Titus-Maximus

While the Obama Administration and its "progressive" supporters in Congress insist they want a federal health care bill to protect people from deadly diseases, liberal senators led by John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.) have pressured the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) into considering lifting the ban on male homosexuals donating blood. It's a decision that could mean disease and death for many Americans, and billions of dollars in additional health care costs.

"John Kerry Supports Gay Blood" declared a column on a pro-homosexual website.

Kerry, Franken and 16 other liberal senators insist they want the blood supply to remain safe and that donated blood must undergo two "highly accurate" tests that make the risk of tainted blood entering the blood supply virtually or nearly zero.

But writer and researcher Dale O'Leary says that male homosexuals, or men who have sex with men (MSM), as the FDA describes them, "expose themselves to such a wide variety of pathogens that medical professionals can never be sure that they have a test to identify every one of them. There could even now be something lurking out there, hidden in the blood of apparently healthy men, waiting."

O'Leary, the author of One Man, One Woman, and The Gender Agenda: Redefining Equality, is writing a forthcoming report on the medical and health impact of admitting open and active homosexuals into the U.S. Armed Forces.

"Senator Kerry argues that this policy is now arcane because we have tests to determine if donated blood carries the HIV, but the problem is not the diseases we know of and have tests for but the diseases which we haven't identified as sexually transmitted and blood borne and don't have tests for," O'Leary points out.

KEYWORDS: aids; blooddonors; bloodsupply; fdrq; gayblood; hiv; homosexualagenda; liberals; publichealth; riskybehavior
This is what America needs, take the population who willfully chooses to put itself in the highest risk category of blood borne sexually transmitted diseases, and demand that they be allowed to give blood to the rest of the population. Are Democrats tone deaf or are they just stupid? As in everything else they force us all to bear the costs of the selfish and the indolent.

Let Americans die on the altar of political correctness.

No thanks liberals, there are diseases in their blood that they have no test for. Homosexuals killed thousands of innocent people with their selfish habits and this nation is not about to risk another devastating outbreak that murders child hemophiliacs because Queer Nation is upset about the very necessary and intelligent rules.

Its interesting that Ezekiel Emanuel wants to control risky behavior IE obesity and smoking (more to come) but homosexual activity is never mentioned as risky.

But don’t expect these senators to partake, should a transfusion be required at some point in time. They’ll rely on their own vintage—a$$hat smackoff, Type A.

Not a problem ... —> as long as that gay blood goes ONLY to the President, his family... Democrat Senators/Congresspersons and their families... as well as the Obambi Czars and their families... and basically just any Dem elected official... and the moonbats of New England.

Assuming you are a man, I would say by having sex with another man.

____________________

Right now, blood banks rely on the honor system. They inquire at the time of donation if the prospective donor has had homosexual sex since the 1970’s, among other queries.

Anyone who says “yes” is not allowed to donate.

The policy makes good sense. Besides aids, active homosexuals can be a vector for hepatitis as well as other blood borne diseases especially including those not yet identified or isolated.

Considering that many studies show that chunky folks actually live longer than thin or even “normal” weight people, and it becomes even more interesting. It’s OK to hate fat people, but we must not criticize homosexuals.

I read that also. The study I read said men who are 30lbs over weight are more likely to survive a heart attack.

Well, maybe not eliminate, but a lot of gay lefties think that homosexual sex is preferable because they do not reproduce. They think of heterosexuals as a form of pollution to be tolerated on a limited basis.

I used to have a leftist radical lesbian friend who once told me that “men should be farmed for their sperm and then exterminated”.

That is a direct quote from her.

Heterosexuals are viewed as a threat by homosexuals because we see and speak out about their perversion. We don’t want our children and grandchildren to be indoctrinated and molested by them.

They want us GONE.

Yep. On a previous thread on this topic, I proposed starting a business selling certified sodomite free blood, for many times the price of the politically correct, but potentially lethal stuff. Nearly every patient would pay the premium for the safe blood.

Mindboggling.

I suppose now that they got the Health Care Monstrosity rammed through, the dimwits in Congress think they know everything there is to know about health and health care. Instant experts.

As the article points out, there are a lot of things besides HIV spread through the blood, and we may not even know about some of them yet.

Not really. Anywhere will do.

I think they use a form that asks questions and they trust the people who want to give blood to be honest.

Ah! And there's the rub - so to speak. Let's say someone is NOT gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) but fill out the form checking off that they ARE gay. They'll need proof. Will pictures do?

On the flip side - if someone IS infected but says that they aren't gay? That could cause problems - no?

Next up, mandate that IV drug users, prostitutes, mega-piercers and “bug chasers” be allowed to give blood to the general population. It’s their “right.”

Not necessarily. I've heard of people banking their own blood, but it's very costly. (Remember the Seinfeld episode where Kramer made a 'withdrawal' to keep in his own freezer?)

That, and the accessibility to your own blood products on short notice impose obvious limits.

If the despicable demonRATs don't get their way, expect outrage (as usual) from the sodomite community, resulting in HIV-positive degenerates rebelling and protesting by intentionally giving their tainted blood in droves. The most radical have done this before - theirs is a scorched earth mindset; a supremely nihilist outlook on life.

Such anarchists need to be charged with a federal felony, if not just outright shot. But they will, unbelievably, actually be lauded.

The form does not ask if you are gay (homosexual, please), it only asks, if you are a man, if you have had sex with another man since 1977. This implies that if you had man-with-man sex prior to this, you are allowed. Furthermore, a man may suffer from same-sex attraction (a pathology) and yet not engage in homosexual activity (yes, there are many such people, no matter what the media, educators and liberals will tell you.) He would not be banned from giving.

We need to wrest this idiotic discussion from the hands of the sodomites and put it back on a rational path. They want people to think that "gays" are being banned from donating because they are "gay", when it is merely the well-founded, rational, solidly proven risk that such behavior presents to the blood supply.

More overt, in-your-face destruction from the Donks. There is not one eensy teensy good reason for this, and a hundred clear reasons why it is very bad. The simple fact is that leftists are not dumb (well, a lot are but) - they want to destroy. Their policies are not designed this way because of stupidity, but hatred of truth and goodness.
