To the dismay of gay-rights activists, the Food and Drug Administration is about to implement new rules recommending that any man who has engaged in homosexual sex in the previous five years be barred from serving as an anonymous sperm donor.
The FDA has rejected calls to scrap the provision, insisting that gay men collectively pose a higher-than-average risk of carrying the AIDS virus. Critics accuse the FDA of stigmatizing all gay men rather than adopting a screening process that focuses on high-risk sexual behavior by any would-be donor, gay or straight.
I’m sorry, but they don’t check ALL samples for AIDS regardless?
Like, I donate blood, they check it before storing it in the blood bank. they haven’t been doing this with sperm all these years? WHY THE FUCK NOT?!
Today in fucking 1972.
Did I trip and fall into a time machine.
That articles’s from 2005, so yes. But it’s still in effect WOO HOO.
