Canadian officials, in what is sure to be a politically incorrect move, have barred homosexuals from organ donations according to new Health Canada rules. The cause sited is known associations of homosexual activity with a host of dangerous diseases. The ban also includes injection drug users. The new rule which went into effect in December caught some off guard. It applies to any homosexual man who has been sexually active within five years.
Peter Nickerson, director of Transplant Manitoba, told CBC News that “sexual orientation and activity” would be among the list of questions asked of potential donors. Already, activist groups are calling upon the federal Health Minister Tony Clement to suspend the policy. They want a panel appointed to review the new rules. All of this hubbub is of course due to their great concern that “healthy viable gay organs will be thrown away.”
On record are the facts, that active homosexuals have considerably higher rates of serious disease than the general population. HIV/AIDS still tops the list, but there are numerous other sexually transmitted diseases among homosexual men. Infections, due to homosexual activity, can have long-term negative effects on organ tissues.
Cancer, human papilloma virus, gonorrhea, viral hepatitis and syphilis are among the disease most common. In addition, active homosexuals have elevated rates of drug and alcohol abuse. In only one other case have Canada’s public health officials overridden their usually amenable relationship with the homosexual activist community. That is the matter of a lifetime ban on blood donations.
These announcements typcially result in a storm of protest from homosexual activists who claim unfair discrimination. They have begun to protest at blood donor drives to create a shortage in the national blood supply as a means of changing the policy. Other tactics include lying about sexual dispositions and tainting the blood supply.
