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 We have started this petition because the FDA regulations are out of date and impeding individuals from receiving life saving organs ans tissue.We can make a difference by forcing these rules to be changed and better testing measures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 am signing this petition because if God for bid I were ever in a position where I needed an organ donation I do not care if my new heart, lungs or eyes came from someone who was gay. I would just be grateful that I have a second chance at living my life to the fullest and very thankful to the person who donated the gift of life.

      This law is discriminatory, insensitive, and medically unsound.
