It is time to modernize. The FDA is currently in the process of reviewing its long standing ban on blood donations from MSM. Australia, Japan, South Africa, New Zealand and the UK have all recently revised their comparable bans. The American Medical Association, American Association of Blood Banks and Red Cross have all called for reform. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, and 80 of her congressional colleagues have recently submitted a letter to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius urging modification of the policy, proposing that each donor's medical risk profile — not one's sexual orientation — be the benchmark for fitness of blood donation.
