The current FDA policy excluding gay men from giving blood is absurd and flies in the face of both need and science. That’s according to Dr. Art Caplan in the February 2010 issue of the American Journal of Bioethics.

Dr. Caplan argues this policy on gays excludes millions from giving blood during growing blood shortages. He explains in this edition of The Bioethics Channel with Lorell LaBoube.
