WASHINGTON The Obama administration is inching closer to lifting the ban on gay men donating blood.
The Department of Health and Human Services said it plans to study alternatives to the 1983 ban on blood and plasma donations by men who have sex with other men.

Here is the test. Let gays donate their blood with the proviso that it can only be given to homosexuals and lesbians and that blood donated by heterosexuals can only be given to heterosexuals. It's consistent with their notion of marriage equality. Heteros can be married. Homos can be married. Two distinct cultures claiming the same status.
My guess lesbians and uninfected homos will cry discrimination that they can't receive hetero blood.
Yep, you nailed it.
Once again, liberalism will kill you before it will suffer some discomfort.
It is why they won’t profile at airports, allow soldiers to dip bullets in pig blood or allow soldiers to defend themselves.
Your death is insignificant compared to their comfy self-important worldview.
>>My blood boils EVERY SINGLE TIME I hear this...<<
Don’t let that happen. Look at the article. infecting you with HIV/AIDS is perfectly OK to this administration.
I’m one of those banned from donating blood, due to my time in the military in the UK 20 some years ago. There is no ‘civil right’ to donate blood, but the homo lobby isn’t concerned with reason. All they want is for everyone to bow down to them...
Send that one to Rush, just in case he thinks he hasn’t caused enough of an uproar lately.
The Obama administration is inching closer to lifting the ban on conservative blood donors.
WHAT!?! (idiots might get infected!!!!)
You can bank your own blood in case of future need. Maybe it needs to start coming down to that if this happens. These people are ripe with awful STD diseases that are permanent.
Can we just remind them of Ryan White and so many others who contracted aids from tainted blood?
Nothing could go wrong for the leftits.
They would love to see a hetero AIDS outbreak turning into a crisis because it would justify big government intervention and spending.
Why would anyone want to have a friend who is homosexual?
Never let a good crisis go to waste.
I am not screaming that i should be able to give blood. Who are all these homosexuals that just have to give blood?
maybe he just wants to be able to donate himself?
In a hundred billion years, neither Pelosi, Obama, or any other democrat party hack politician in Washington will ever allow themselves to receive a gay blood transfusion.
We peons will be infected with AIDS infected blood for their PC pandering purposes.
That’s one way of spreading equality.
But I’d bet the politicians and bureaucrats carve out a spescial loophole for themselves.
risk factors are risk factors, based on behavior, not on morality.
MSM spreads HIV, and the HIV test does not turn positive for several weeks or even three months. So if you have had sodomy in the last three months, you are at risk to spread HIV to someone who gets your blood.
So maybe they should ask if you have had anal sex without protection, which spreads HIV, rather than MSM...there are other MSM sexual practices that don’t spread HIV, and women can be sodomized.
Excuse my blunt language.
One would think gay men or those with high risk of contracting AIDS would want an untainted blood supply available to them in the event they contracted HIV.
Instead, it appears they want to spread their contagion so everybody is at equal risk from their immoral behavior. They’ve already accepted the fact they will likely die from their behavior, so now they want to murder others.
As long as they can keep the death losses down to the low thousands, and a few billions of dollars of medical costs, I guess they think that the public relations and politics are worth it.
