Today’s Action: Tell Biden to fight to end the FDA’s policy preventing LGBTQ+ people from donating blood!

The recent surge in COVID cases has fueled the worst blood shortage in more than a decade, and yet many LGBTQ+ people are still barred from donating blood. 

With shelf-life issues, recurring climate crises, the ongoing pandemic, staffing shortages, and countless other obstacles taken into account, the blood supply is more than tenuous and vulnerable. The current policy, rooted in bigotry with zero scientific basis, places unreasonable restrictions on gay and bisexual men. Estimates suggest an additional 360,000 men would likely donate should the policy be lifted, which could flip the nation’s blood shortage on its head and help more than a million people. 

One LGBTQ+ advocate, Jay Franzone, remained abstinent for a year just so he could donate blood in January 2017. Since Franzone’s experience, the restrictions have changed to only allow those who have abstained from same-sex sexual activity for 90 days to donate. Franzone said “they can change the policy — even temporarily — and they can do so today.”  

Write President Biden and urge him to push for an end to the discriminatory policy that prevents gay and bisexual men, as well as others in the LGBTQ+ community, from giving blood! Send him this petition with over 100,000 signatures in support of stopping the policy.

Any policy that singles out the LGBTQ community is flat-out discriminatory. On top of that, this one in particular poses an unnecessary obstacle to ending the blood shortage. Safety technology and blood screening have advanced well past the science of time-based restrictions– now, the only thing that is standing in the way of change is pure bigotry.

 

The pandemic, antiquated restrictions, and more have some hospitals — especially in rural areas — rationing critical blood products. A blood shortage means medical professionals are making choices about who receives blood transfusions, with some centers one trauma patient away from running out of blood completely. In a world frequently facing unprecedented disasters, our emergency supply is nonexistent. Everyone capable and willing should be able to donate blood, especially during a blood shortage. 

Write President Biden and send him this petition with over 100,000 signatures demanding an end to the FDA’s anti-LGBTQ+ policy!
