Student unions ban blood donation advertising posters... because they discriminate against gay men.

Two student unions have outlawed the National Blood Service, claiming it discriminates against gays.

Newcastle and Sunderland Universities’ unions have banned it from advertising in their buildings.

The service does not allow active homosexuals to donate as they are at ‘high risk’ of carrying blood-borne viruses including HIV and Hepatitis B, although this policy may be relaxed in the future.

Well of course everyone's blood should be tested for disease, and if found free of such, should not be discriminated against. Anyone's blood could be unfit to be given to
others, not just gays.

I agree too.  Working at a hospital, they have blood drives all the time. I get rather sick of telling people that they won't take my blood.

I agree as well. It makes no sense to discriminate - epecially when they are always in such need of blood donors!
