FDA to Implement Gay Sperm Donor Rules
They can't be serious. There are several things wrong with this entire issue:
1. The article states that there are better ways of finding and excluding an HIV+ donor. There are many scientific evaluations that can be made on a specimen. Why would the FDA mandate to encompassingly exclude an entire group of people who may or may not have had unprotected sex? I know a lot of risky behavior occurs in the gay community, but many of my heterosexual friends consistently participate in unprotected sex. Actually, more than my homosexual friends, myself included.
2. How would this ever be an effective screening process anyway? If someone wanted to donate sperm badly enough for whatever reason, he would obviously completely lie about any unprotected liasons or dates involved.
3. The FDA has repeatedly proven themselves to be an entire group of idiots. They allow deadly drugs to be sold, barely tested, they refuse to even evaluate any helpful, healthful herbs for medicinal use, and they seem to be so worried about public health, but they allow cigarettes and extremely unhealthy food to be sold in abundance. How can we trust them to make any intelligent decisions at all?
I wouldn't be surprised if this was a conservative, religious ploy to keep gay men's genes from being made available and being passed along. The American government obviously feels threatened by homosexuals and doesn't want them around or to be allowed to enjoy any inkling of happiness. I guess we'll see what happens.
