I agree the ban should be lifted. I have a family member that is alive today because of a blood donation. I wish I had the option to donate without lying on the form. Lifting the ban will get more blood flowing to those patients that need it. The patient that needs it could be your child, your parent, or yourself.
PS: I've had many friends over the years just lie on the form and donate anyway. I'm quite sure the US blood bank systems have received thousands of gallons of gay and bisexual mens blood and will continue to receive it whether or not the ban is lifted.
