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This ban was put into place in the 70's - it's outdated, discriminatory, and is preventing healthy blood from getting to the people who need it.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!
