Skip to comments.HHS weighs accepting men who have sex with men as blood donors
Posted on 03/13/2012 10:54:19 AM PDT by Nachum
The Health and Human Services Department (HHS) is seeking comments on designing a pilot program to create alternative donor deferral criteria for gay men. Currently, men who have had sex with other men (MSM) since 1977 cannot donate blood due to higher levels of certain transfusion-transmissible infections among that population, the notice explains. Members of Congresss interest and increased accuracy among donor testing have made the department reconsider the ban. [T]he increased effectiveness of donor testing for [Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)], [Hepatitis B Virus (HBV)], syphilis and other infectious agents has greatly enhanced

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Anything to spread the infections and upgrade the deviants.
If that happens I’ll just stop giving blood.
I believe people can bank their own blood in advance, if they know they will have a need for it in the near future. but that does not help with emergencies.
But the rule change is ridiculous even to consider.
Criminally insane. Will ping this one out.
This is a really, really bad idea. But, if they go ahead with it anway—they just can’t hel themselves. If (when) they do, the MSM will no doubt provide cover. Any poor bastard who gets infected as a result of a transfusion will be covered up. It will be silence or they will blame the victim.
“Men who have sex with men”
Does that mean queers?
I’ll bet congress and barry’s cabinet will have a separate special (read: safe) supply saved in case they need blood.
Since they are all ok with it, let the gay men have full advantage of this blood while shielding it from people that don’t engage in risky behavior.
What this tells you is if you ever have a family member needing a blood transfusion, to have friends or family donate DIRECTLY....INSIST on it. If the hospital will not allow this, INSIST on them providing you with a written statement denoting such. If they won’t provide the statement and say “take it or leave it”, stop right there and tell them you need a phone to call your lawyer - RIGHT NOW.
The real “pink slime” controversey
Isn’t it these Leftist sorts in power today that are stating a necessity to decrease the Human population by at least 85% to save the Earth?
Kill us off everyway they can eh.
That was my first thought too, and I donate every six weeks like clockwork. On further consideration though...if tens of thousands of us did that, then heteros in need of blood would face a higher likelihood of getting the stuff with, well, cooties. I'll keep giving for the sake of my fellow "men who have sex with WOMEN".
“Kill us off everyway they can eh.”
From the Sebellius Scrooge school of economics: ‘If they’d rather die, then they had better do it and decrease the surplus population. ..’
First the left promotes taxpayer funded unprotected sex, now this.
Yeah, I don’t see anything good coming from this.
How about “men who have sex with_____”
If HHS wants 1.5 million additional donors and 3 million boycott donating blood that’s a net loss of 1.5 million donors.
How fast do you think the rules would change back if the blood donation system had a big net loss of donors because of this absolutely insane possible rule change?
