Remove The Fda Policy That Bans Gay Men From Donating Blood.

There are national blood shortages constantly, and yet thousands of Americans are banned from donating blood simply because of their sexual orientation. This ban was put into place in the 70's - it's outdated, discriminatory, and is preventing healthy blood from getting to the people who need it. The American Red Cross as well as the American Association of Blood Banks both believe the ban should be removed. So what's up with the FDA? We can change this policy, but we have to do it together. Join me in standing with Banned4Life and sign this petition!

Remove The Fda Policy That Bans Gay Men From Donating Blood.

I muself have been lucky enough to be able when needed to give blood either as a donation or to give when a loved one was in need. to think that someone who is healthy and want s to donate is unable because they are a Gay Man is beyond belief. know when so many staes are legalizing gay marraige that their partner would not be able to give blood to their legal Partner speeks to a toally flawed system. we must put pressure on our health care system to change these laws.
