Topic: Deadly blood colors debate


"A woman who watched her husband die of AIDS after receiving a tainted donation and who now has the disease herself is torn over gay rights versus blood supply safety."

"At issue is a quarter-century-old ban on blood donations from men who have sex with other men. The ban was imposed to contain the spread of HIV, but gay-rights activists say scientific advances have made HIV contamination of the blood supply next to impossible. Maintaining the ban unfairly stigmatizes gay men, they say."
