Banning Bisexual Blood Brings Benefit
Scottish students who are homosexual or bisexual want to be able to donate blood to save lives. However, the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS) wants no part of their blood.
To those who oppose the SNBTS’ action to ban homosexual or bisexual men from giving blood should not automatically make this into a homophobic issue. It is a shame any time anyone who is homosexual is opposed, it automatically becomes homophobia or bigotry.
That is not the case always. Yes, there are those who maybe homophobic or bigoted but I do not believe the SNBTS falls into that category.
The SNBTS really cares for the welfare of its Scottish citizens and wants them to be healthy. Research has shown that those who are homosexually active are more prone to carry blood-borne viruses.
The SNBTS has made the right decision to protect its blood bank. Other countries who do not have this policy should definitely follow suit.
Those receiving blood should ask themselves if they knew that the blood they were going to receive was coming from a homosexual or bisexual person, would they still want the blood.
My hunch is that they would rather not receive that blood because of the fear of blood borne viruses. This is not to say that all heterosexuals who are active may not have blood borne viruses. It is just that research has shown there is more danger in receiving blood from those who are homosexually active.
This is not being homophobic or bigoted. Now if blood from different races was banned because they are of a different race, then that would be bigoted and racist as long as they are heterosexual. All blood is red regardless of what a persons’ race is.
When a person is getting a blood transfusion they do not ask what race the blood came from but all they want to be assured is that it is safe.
There is a blood transfusion that is always safe! Whether someone is homosexual or heterosexual is offered a blood transfusion that is so pure and healthy. It automatically wipes out the deadly virus in a persons body and cleanses them.
I am talking about the precious cleansing blood of Jesus. Anyone who comes to Jesus can be covered by His precious cleansing blood wiping away all their sins and giving them a new beginning!
This blood is offered to anyone who receives God's free gift of grace through Jesus Christ! Jesus can change a person inside out!
