Gays' 'blood war' slammed
Herald Sun ^ | 16 January 2006

Posted on 01/15/2006 2:29:21 PM PST by Aussie Dasher

South Africa's blood supply service today slammed gays who gave blood this week without revealing their sexual status to protest the policy of turning away donations by homosexuals.

Some 120 members of the Johannesburg-based Gay and Lesbian Alliance (GLA) on Friday donated blood at clinics in response to a statement by the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) asking gays not to do so.

The group's members lied about their sexual status on an admission form and only after donating blood told the SANBS that 65 per cent of them had engaged in high-risk sexual behaviour and were unsure of their HIV status, while at least one member had full-blown AIDS.

"What bothers us is that someone could not do something like this without realising their responsibility to the safety of the blood supply," SANBS spokeswoman Ianthe Exall said.

"Blood donation is not a right, it's a privilege. Everybody has to meet the right criteria," she said.

Those involved should be charged and locked up.

Do these people have any sense of responsibility at all?

"Blood donation is not a right, it's a privilege. Everybody has to meet the right criteria," she said.

Perhaps it would have driven the point home to the gays had she said "Blood TRANSFUSIONS are not a right, but a kindness, and not everybody deserves the kindness.

Oh, this is a GREAT p.r. move for gay people. This is the perfect way to win over public opinion!

Gays place more importance on the acknowledgment of their sexual status than the health and well being of the general public. They try to say that their being gay doesn't affect those around them. Obviously the "Gay attitude" does. In this case, it may result in the murder of an innocent bystander. If so, I hope the innocent bystander is gay them self. Being gay is a CHOICE!

Well, right there is just an example of the crux of the problem. You got all these folks including some politicians out there that are trying to preach a view that homosexuality is perfectly fine and natural and just another normal way to express their sexuality - and that runs all the way to examples like SSM becoming legalized in Canada. So if it is perfectly fine and natural, on what grounds shouldn't they be allowed to donate blood? Hmmmm... if the conclusion is faulty, try going back to the original premise.

I just don't understand these people. I am considered higher risk for Mad Cow Disease because I lived in Europe in the early 80's (and visited the UK in that time). I am not supposed to give blood, and I understand that. If I do have some sort of infectious disease, I certainly do not want to risk spreading it. Why do people have to put politics and stunts above the well being of others?

The Gays sued and lost the "Right" to donate blood in this country. Keeping the blood supply HIV free is "Heteronormative".

Most veterans who were stationed in southern Europe are banned from giving blood due to Mad Cow. I'm one of the Mad Cow carrying group.

The sexual orientation of the victim does not matter. If he dies, he deserves justice against these homo-sociopaths.

Cancer "survivors" like me are excluded from donating blood products for life, but you don't hear me bitchin' and moanin.' The only people carrying on about being excluded are the alternate-lifestylers. Why should they receive breaks that you and I do not? A safe blood supply is the paramount object, not the ability of high-risk groups to donate blood.

Like firing a shotgun into a crowd. They should be tried for murder/attempted murder.

I for one think it's great. Gays should be encouraged to give blood, and to identify themselves proudly. Then, when a gay needs a transfusion, they'll have a ready supply of gay blood to give him.

In other words, the blood supply is wrecked. When people start dying because they can't get blood in a medical emergency, their families can direct all lawsuits to the GLA. They can work their 50-cent prison jobs their whole lives to pay it off. Bunch of scumbags.

And of course the the gay agendists could care less about increasing the risk of HIV infection via accidental needle stick to the blood drawers. Thats a real problem in the healthcare workers.

A few years ago I was behind a car on the freeway...on the left rear bumper was the "Give blood - the gift of life" sticker....but on the right bumper was a gay rainbow decal.

Shudder...

This is not suprising, When one becomes a homo he has already rejected society norms of decent human behavier.

No they don't. If they did they would not think that their imagined right to donate blood trumped the concern of the blood banks that recepients of donated blood not risk, AIDs and/ or hepatitis. These people are not only selfish they are to put it simply evil.

Or check this:

What is a "gift giver?"

A gift giver is an HIV positive gay man who deliberately transmits the virus, often times to bug chasers, or those willing to contract it. [...]"
