We are excluding the possibility of perfectly good organs from benefiting and potentially saving the lives of those who are dying or have a poor quality of life simply because the donor happens to be a homosexual. We have started this petition because the FDA regulations are out of date and impeding individuals from receiving life saving organs ans tissue.We can make a difference by forcing these rules to be changed and better testing measures to be enforced. Far to many people are dying while perfectly good organs are being wasted due to the sexual orientation of the donor. 

There has also been a ban on homosexual men from donating blood since 1977 

To:
C.O.R.E /FDA, Center for organ recovery and education /food and drug administration
Change the policy of automatically excluding homosexuals from donation of organs

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I'm signing on behalf of a childhood friend . Also because I believe everybody is equal. Who says its wrong to be gay ? & if you say well its not so then why can't they donate their eyes ?

      Its important because my brother was gay. He and his partner were together 28 yrs. His partner died of liver cancer and my beloved brother couldn't deal w/ it.. almost 5 yrs later he committed suicide. I would have liked to think this healthy vegan could live on through someone else and give sight to a blind or a beating heart to a failing heart.. same on them...
