VIDEO: Obama’s FDA Ends Male Homosexual Blood Ban – Kincaid Interviews AFTAH’s LaBarbera

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

USA’s homosexual blood policy now weaker than Australia’s (on which it is based); homosexual men were violating ban; self-absorbed “gay” activists still not satisfied

Weaker Than Australia's Homosexual Blood Policy: Inexplicably, although the new Obama FDA policy relies on Australia's move to a one-year deferral of blood donations by MSM (men who have sex with men), the U.S. policy does NOT contain measures that would yield a higher compliance with the policy. See around the 10:00 mark in the video below.

USA’s Blood Safety & MSM Policy Now Weaker Than Australia’s: Inexplicably, although the new Obama FDA policy relies on Australia’s move from a ban to a one-year deferral for blood donations by MSM (men who have sex with men), the U.S. policy does NOT contain measures that have helped yield a high compliance rate in Australia. See around the 10:00 mark in the video below. This verbiage is found on page 6 of the new FDA blood donation recommendations; click on graphic above to enlarge.

This Skype interview aired December 30. Cliff Kincaid, founder and of America’s Survival, Jerry Kenney and AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera discuss the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recommendation to allow donations by “men who have sex with men” (MSM)–ending the ban of donations from men who practice unhealthy an unnatural homosexual behaviors. In the 40-minute interview, they discuss the risks associated with MSM that are laid out in the FDA report, “Revised Recommendations for Reducing the Risk of [HIV] Transmission by Blood and Blood Products,” available HERE.

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. Make your views know to the FDA HERE. Click on graphic to enlarge.

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.

Latest ‘Gay Disease’: Syphilis Is Predominantly a Homosexual Male Epidemic, CDC Reports

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014

As debate over ending “gay” male blood ban escalates, so do homosexual disease rates

Homosexual bathhouse "Steamworks" sits prominently in Chicago's "gay" "Boystown" neighborhood.

Catering to Promiscuous ‘Gays’ Is Big Business: The CDC revealed in 2014 that syphilis is now “predominantly” a homosexual male “epidemic.” Above is a photo of the homosexual bathhouse “Steamworks,” which sits prominently (at the 3246 address) on Halsted Street in the heart of Chicago’s homosexual “Boystown” neighborhood. ‘Homo-promiscuity’ is a major factor in the spread of syphilis, HIV and other STDs, but politically-speaking, orgiastic “gay” sex clubs like this one are apparently untouchable. AFTAH has long called for such perversion centers to be closed down in the name of public health, to no avail. Note the nondescript, windowless Steamworks building and the official “rainbow pillars” demarcating the city’s “gay-borhood.” Photo: AFTAH; click to enlarge.

WARNING: Offensive CDC photo of syphilis

By Peter LaBarbera

One way that 2014 was not unique compared to previous years is that it brought further evidence of the destructiveness of homosexual behavior. In May, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that such a high percentage of new syphilis cases are linked to homosexuality-practicing males that it now considers syphilis “predominantly an MSM [men who have sex with men] epidemic.”

The health agency’s May 9, 2014 Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report (MMWR) [reprinted in PDF format HERE] found that almost 84 percent of primary and secondary syphilis cases reported in 2012 were among homosexual men (MSM)–up from 77 percent in 2009.

The report states (emphasis added):

“In 2012, primary and secondary syphilis cases in the 35 reporting areas that reported the sex of sex partners for [equal or greater than] 70% of male cases comprised 83.7% (13,113) of all nationwide cases. In those areas, the proportion of male primary and secondary syphilis cases attributed to MSM [men who have sex with men] increased from 77.0 (6,366) in 2009 to 83.9% (8,701) in 2012. Increases in incidence occurred among MSM of all ages and races/ethnicities from all regions. The greatest percentage increases occurred among Hispanics (53.4%, from 1,291 in 2009 to 1,980 in 2012) and whites (38.1%, 2,449 to 3,381), when compared with blacks (21.2%, 2,267 to 2,747)…By age group, the greatest percentage increases occurred among MSM aged 25-29 (53.2%m 1,073 to 1,644).”

In a separate section of the CDC MMWR report (p. 405, in the blue text box), the authors write (emphasis added):

“What is already known on this topic?
Rates of reported primary and secondary syphilis in the United States have increased since reaching historic lows in 2000. Cases of primary and secondary syphilis increasingly are among males, particularly men who have sex with men (MSM).

“What is added by this report?
Primary and secondary syphilis rates increased among men of all ages and races/ethnicities during 2005–2013, from 5.1 cases per 100,000 population in 2005 to 9.8 in 2013, when men accounted for 91.1% of all cases reported in the United States. Although rates remain highest among black men (28.1), recent increases were greatest among Hispanic and white men. Currently, syphilis is predominantly an MSM epidemic.”

LISTEN: Cliff Kincaid Discusses Blood Supply Risks and Homosexuals in the Military at AFTAH Truth Academy

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011
AFTAH has launched a “Keep the Gay Blood Ban” campaign to oppose the renewed Homosexual Lobby push to end the FDA ban on “men who have had sex with men” giving blood. Cliff Kincaid discusses the extraordinary health risks associated with gay male sex.

The following is excerpted from a presentation by Cliff Kincaid [click HERE to listen; see listening instructions below] at the debut Americans For Truth Academy in August 2010. Kincaid discusses the risks of opening up the blood supply to men practicing homosexuality. The talk by Kincaid — Director of Accuracy in Media’s Center for Investigative Journalism and founder of America’s Survival — is titled, “The Battle over Blood: Gay Health Risks and Public Policy.” He focuses on the homosexual-related health threats to our military and spoke before the law was changed to allow homosexuals to serve openly in the military. AFTAH Radio Hour replayed this excerpted speech August 6, 2011.

Cliff Kincaid

Kincaid asks, “How can you admit gay males in the military if gay men can’t give blood” — and speculates that the renewed push to open up the blood supply to homosexuals is motivated by the need to address that quandary. He also mentions an in-depth America’s Survival report on health risks and the military by Dale O’Leary, “Asking for Trouble: How admitting homosexuals to the U.S. Armed Forces will undermine military readiness, order and discipline,” available in PDF format HERE. [NOTE: the full presentation by Kincaid includes Q & A; this and a second talk by Kincaid in Chicago is available on the Chicago 2010 Truth Academy DVD set offered below.]

Keep the Gay Blood Ban – California AIDS Flier Exposes Extreme Risks of Homosexual Sex

Friday, August 5th, 2011

AFTAH launches “Keep the Gay Blood Ban” informational campaign: “Anal sex is the riskiest sexual activity for getting/spreading HIV.”

WARNING: Graphic and Vulgar Descriptions of Homosexual Acts; NOT Suitable for Children

RIMMING: Section on "Rimming" from flier produced for the California HIV/AIDS Hotline. "Rimming" is a slang term for oral-anal sexual stimulation, as depicted by the drawing above. The text reads: "You cannot get HIV from rimming. You can get Hepatitis A (but you can get vaccinated against it), shigella, herpes, and intestinal parasites. To reduce your chances of getting sick, clean ass before you eat it, or use a dental dam as a barrier between your mouth and your partner's ass."

TAKE ACTION: Share this disturbing information with your adult friends, family and co-workers — as well as your U.S. Senators and Congressman [Senate 202-224-3121; House: 202-225-3121; www.congress.org].  Urge your representatives in Congress to put the safety of Americans — and a pristine blood supply — ahead of the demands of the selfish Homosexuality Lobby.  Also urge your representatives to launch a Congressional investigation into the health hazards of homosexual behaviors (just as the government studied the dangers of smoking).  We need the government to regulate the commercialized “gay” sex industry (e.g. bathhouses) — which fosters anonymous perversions and a reckless culture of promiscuity that spreads diseases and ultimately endangers innocents.

________________________________

“Infection with these parasites was a likely effect of anal intercourse, which was apt to put a man in contact with his partner’s fecal matter, and was virtually a certainty through the then-popular practice of rimming, which medical journals politely call anal-oral intercourse.” Homosexual reporter Randy Shilts, who died of AIDS at 42,writing in his book, And the Band Played On, pp. 18-19.

By Peter LaBarbera

Here we reproduce portions of a flier produced by the Asian Health Services and funded by the California AIDS Clearinghouse — as AFTAH launches its “Keep the Gay Blood Ban” (KGB²) campaign against renewed lobby efforts to open up the U.S. blood supply to homosexuality-practicing men. Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), one-time Democratic candidate for president, has stepped up his efforts to overturn the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) current ban on blood donations from any ‘man who has had sex with a man’ (MSM) since 1977 (and any woman who has had sex with such a man).

In the House, Sen. Kerry is being aided by Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Chicago), who represents the homosexual Boystown neighborhood in Chicago, and the two recently applauded Obama’s HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) for taking steps toward lifting the homosexual blood ban.

Sadly, Sen. Kerry and others crusading against the homosexual blood ban do so on the basis that the ban is mainly about “anti-gay discrimination” rather than preserving public health. Kerry previously cited the advent of legalized homosexual “marriage” as mitigating against the lifetime homosexual blood ban. Yet few seem interested in investigating — much less restricting — the actual high-risk homosexual practices and deviant behaviors depicted and described in this (pro-“gay’) flier, which crassly helps explain the immense heath risks of male homosexuality. We excerpt this flier — vulgar slang references and all — to help educate the public as to how this lifestyle is so dangerous that men who practice it must be kept from the nation’s blood supply.

Battle Over the Blood — FDA Upholds Ban on Homosexual Male Blood Donations

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

“In this battle, if the gays win, you lose,” says Kincaid

[NOTE: Corrected contact info for American Red Cross below]

“Detection of HIV infection is particularly challenging when very low levels of virus are present in the blood for example during the so-called ‘window period.’ The ‘window period’ is the time between being infected with HIV and the ability of an HIV test to detect HIV in an infected person….FDA’s MSM policy reduces the likelihood that a person would unknowingly donate blood during the ‘window period’ of infection. This is important because the rate of new infections in MSM is higher than in the general population and current blood donors.” — Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

In the book And the Band Played On: Politics, People and the AIDS Epidemic, homosexual journalist Randy Shilts documents how homosexual activists originally fought the effort to ban "gay" male blood donations, saying it was discriminatory. This caused a delay in starting the ban, which led to the needless deaths of many innocent people. Shilts himself died of AIDS.

Folks, thankfully, sanity has prevailed and the political attempt to weaken the FDA ban on blood donations from “men who have had sex with men” (MSM) failed in a 6-9 vote Friday by the FDA committee mentioned in Cliff Kincaid’s article below. (Note the American Red Cross’ condemnation of the vote, along with “gay” activist organizations; contact the Red Cross HERE.) I only wish the homosexual activists and their liberal allies (most importantly the CDC) would redirect their energies toward shutting down homosexual bathhouses and sex clubs — i.e., the venues that encourage the anonymous hyper-promiscuity that facilitates the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases. (See our story: “CDC: Gay Men’s HIV Rate 44 Times that of Other Men; Syphilis Rate 46 Times Higher.”) But this would run contrary to the history of homosexual activism, which elevates deviant sex and “rights” based on same above the public health and other interests of the public. TAKE ACTION: Contact the Food and Drug Administration HERE; Contact the Red Cross HERE; and you can reach Congress at 202-224-3121. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org,

The Battle Over Blood

By Cliff Kincaid, Reprinted with permission of Accuracy in Media, www.aim.org |  June 9, 2010

With the public focused on the calamity of the Gulf oil spill, another disaster that could affect millions of lives is in the making. The federal Advisory Committee on Blood Safety and Availability (ACBSA) is holding meetings on June 10 and June 11 to consider lifting the ban on gay blood.

In this battle, if the gays win, you lose.

Gay activists, who are expected to dominate the proceedings and intimidate federal policy makers, insist that the ban is discriminatory and homophobic and are demanding the “right” to donate blood. The lifting of the ban on gay blood is seen as a necessary prerequisite to lifting the ban on open gays in the military. After all, how can gays be on the battlefield, where they could be called upon to provide a blood transfusion to a fellow soldier, if they cannot legally donate blood?

What this means, if politics is played with the blood supply, is that that the five million Americans a year who receive blood transfusions, in addition to soldiers on the battlefield, could be exposed to the AIDS virus or other infections in the diseased blood of sexually active homosexuals.
