"Two student unions have outlawed the National Blood Service, claiming it discriminates against gays.
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.
Greg Du Bois, union president at Sunderland University, said: ‘They don’t allow gay men to give blood and that has been determined as not a satisfactory reason.’
But the move has been condemned by those who have relied on the service for life-saving procedures.
She said the rule could cost lives and that 'it would be a tragedy if the boycott meant that people didn't donate blood'.
Mrs Olley, from Houghton-Le-Spring, Tyne and Wear, added : 'The blood service needs more people to donate blood. It wouldn't stop an entire group from donating without good reason.
'In order to assure the continued safety of the blood supply, we currently ask that those in groups shown to have a particularly high risk of carrying blood-borne viruses do not give blood.
'While safer sex through the use of condoms does reduce the transmission of infections, it cannot eliminate the risk altogether." - from: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1084680/Student-unions-ban-blood-donation-advertising-posters--discriminate-gay-men.html

"The next logical step after applying affirmative action to the blood supply will be forcing us all to get transfused with AIDS-infected blood, so that we can attain equality by spreading the disease around — the mirror image equivalent of the impending Obama economic policies. - When everyone has AIDS, we will be equal at last."
