“You can also get a normal relative to donate.”
Not always. There are time restrictions. The entire family is on the opposite coast. Family blood is not necessarily a match. Basically, if the ban is lifted on homosexual donation, we’re all potential and unwilling players of Russian roulette.
I understand, but if proximity permits, the likelihood of a match with a family member is quite high. It is unfortunate that we live in such a mobile age that family members are so often separated by great distance. I grew up close to many relatives and think back to how fortunate I was and the great memories that were a part of that time.
