More than 80 lawmakers have called on the Obama administration to allow gay men to donate blood.
The lawmakers say the administration should change what they say is an "outdated" policy.
Eighty-two lawmakers in the House and Senate signed on to the letter, including Sens. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Enzi was the only Republican to sign the letter.
They said Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius should re-evaluate blood donation criteria that ban gay men from donating blood for life.

Let me guess... Congresscritters will be exempt from this as well...
Well, liberals are all about fair. And to them, it’s fair if we all get HIV.
Sick, rotten bass turds. The 82 who support this should be shot, they are dangerous.
sure wouldn’t want anyone’s feelings hurt.
Because giving them the ability to donate blood, despite their extremely high rates of HIV/AIDs is vitally important to people who need blood.
I know blood screening has gotten better, but my mother died from Hepatitis she contracts from a blood she received after surgery. I say no,
Ask Arthur Ashe if this is a good idea.
Are we short on blood?
I sure don’t want their damn blood.
Well this is just great. Enzi is an enabler and so is Cheney. Somebody else get into that race please.
Arthur Ashe was unavailable for comment.
And that blood should exclusively reserved for congresscritters, federal employees, and most certainly for the White House occupants.
And the blood source should be CLEARLY LABELED.
Think about getting Bawny Fwank’s blood...multiple problems...disease, threat of becoming just as stupid, and possibly very ugly and disgusting babies.
Those lawmakers should be forced to sign a card stating that if they ever need blood they can only use queer blood.
Sure as long as Democrats and their families get that blood and mine get the good stuff.
And you know homosexuals will all rush to donate AIDSee blood just because they can
If they support it they should be given a vial of every blood their type that comes from them....
Before screening it for disease....
Goose meet Gander!
Silly Goose, meet Silly Gander...

F*ck That! Let these 82 get a blood transfusion from them first!
Those people are some of the filthiest sex pervs on Earth. They dont care where they get it or from whom, and they have the STD infection rate to prove it.
It is criminal to subject people to being infected by them!
When you can only get 82 out of 535 brain dead idiots to agree to call for something, doesn’t that sort of confirm it’s a bad idea?
Just inject every single one of them with HIV. And then deny medical.
