Petition Closed

Allow gays to donate blood.

I'd like to keep this short and to the point:

Red Cross is always saying that they need more blood donations, but they aren't allowed to accept gay donations just based on their sexual orientation. We are in the 21st century and we know that HIV/AIDS is not just a "gay" disease, so to limit homosexuals only because of their risk factor is wrong and needs to change.With the heavy screening they put blood donations through now, there should be no reason that homosexuals cannot donate their blood.
