Is it to extreme?
UK Health Officials announced this week that gay men will soon be permitted to donate blood.
This new policy will reverse a decades-old ban that has prohibited men that identify as gay from donating blood.
UK Health Minister, Anne Milton, explained the change in policy was due to concerns that the old policy was discriminatory and could violate equality legislation.
However, the participation criteria is highly selective. Only those gay men who have not had sex with another man in the past 10 years will be allowed to donate. Thus, sexually-active gay men are still banned from donating.
