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.

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.
I think you are thinking about the other brother’s employer.
I am sure I read that one Emanual brother is a homosexual.
Maybe it’s not the doctor “Mengele reincarnated” brother but a third one?
As soon as I hit “post” I realized what you meant...
Now I’ll have to find out if there are three, I’m pretty sure there are, and they all had to take ballet.
I wonder if their parents are happy at how the little perv leftists turned out.
Well, that makes me happy. I was funny. ,-)
If all the sexual perverts were removed from DC, the population would be reduced by a huge percentage, and everyone would be better off. Except the location where the pervs were sent...
We better kick these clowns out of office in the coming elections...
