Donating blood is important especially if you have a rare blood type. The American Red Cross wants all the donations they can get but if you are homosexual or bi-sexual you may not donate! This is because they are still stuck in the past and still classifying homosexuals and bi-sexual individuals as a high risk because of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Technology has improved in so many different ways especially with the rapid HIV testing, if a homosexual or bi-sexual wishes to give blood why not have them take a rapid test? This help ensure that no virus is in the blood. PLEASE lets stop the American Red Cross from refusing homosexuals and bi-sexual individuals! Please sign this petition!
