Petition Against the MSM Blood Ban

We the undersigned students of UCD would liek to express our dissatisfaction at the Irish Blood Transfusion Service' refusal to allow gay men their right to donate blood. We would like you to follow the example set by the NHS' Blood and Transplant Department (Giver Blood) in Britain in allowing gay men to give blood. Gay men (and women who have had sex with gay men) would like to be treated as equals in all regards in Irish society and your organisation is standing in the way of this progress.

Thanks for writing your story and I hope the entire world reads it because it is knowledge we all can profit from.Who knows when we might need to consider the same process for ourselves or someone else? I am hoping that everyone reading it will be alert for ways for patients to keep lab staff and everyone else on their toes. Having been a working RN for 30 years, I could write several books about quirky hospital errors myself. We all need to work on ways to save patients time and trouble.
