LaBarbera Decries Proposed FDA Weakening of Homosexual Blood Donation Ban – on WVCY ‘Crosstalk’

HIV-Young-Adult-Males-2011-CDC

Homosexual Disease Rates Are Very High: Sexually transmitted disease rates remain at very high levels among homosexual men (“men who have sex with men,” or MSM), This 2011 CDC graphic reveals that almost all of new HIV infections for males ages 13-24 were linked to the practice of homosexual sex. Now is not the time to weaken the FDA’s policy banning donations from MSM. Read the FDA Draft Recommendations on its weakening of the homosexual blood ban policy HERE.

AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera was a guest June 4 on VCY America radio network’s “Crosstalk,” with Jim Schneider as host [click HERE to listen online]. Among the issues discussed was the FDA’s proposed weakening of its policy banning blood donations from men who have engaged in homosexual sex (sodomy). Below is taken from the VCY site:

TAKE ACTION: From the WVCY website: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is moving forward with its plan to lift the ban on homosexuals donating blood if they have been abstinent from sexual relations with another man for a period of 12 months. You may read the draft guidelines hereThe FDA is receiving public comments through July 14, 2015.

Peter LaBarbera is the president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org). Jim and Peter noted the following regarding the issues listed in today’s title and more:

    • Media Hypes Jenner: The media is going ‘bonkers’ over the Bruce Jenner to Caitlin Jenner transformation story yet according to Peter, they are loath to cover stories regarding people who thought they were gay or lesbian and are transitioning to a healthy heterosexual lifestyle. Their propaganda has been so effective that now the average American believes that 25% of the population is homosexual when in fact, the actual number is 1.6% (Transgender is .7%)
    • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a guide to restroom access for transgender workers. Their core principle is for all employees, including those who are transgender, to have access to restrooms that correspond to their gender identity. Jim read a statement from them that basically communicates that forcing individuals to having to use restrooms not consistent with their gender identity or segregating them from other workers through use of gender neutral facilities, singles them out. This might cause transgenders not to use workplace restrooms due to fear for their physical safety and that could lead to potentially serious health consequences.
    • Robert Gates, the man who oversaw the transition to allow open homosexuals to serve in the military, is now the president of the Boy Scouts. It should come as no surprise that he is pushing for the inclusion of openly homosexual adults as scout leaders. Jim noted that the scouts were in a sustainable position because the U.S. Supreme Court had given them the right, as a private organization, not to have homosexual scouts and leaders. They capitulated and now the scouts are saying it’s no longer sustainable for them to have the ban on gay scout leaders.

  • Homosexual Blood Ban Change: The FDA has outlined their plan to end the lifetime ban on homosexual and bisexual blood donations. The proposal announces a one-year deferral for men involved in sexual relations with other men. Peter noted how the homosexual community seems to think this is all about the negative effects of the bigotry they feel by not being able to give blood like other people. It’s as though this is about their feelings and not about protecting public health.
  • Also included was discussion regarding a movement to have churches forced to remove homosexuality from their sin list.
