Arthur Caplan’s Viewpoint

“[The gay blood ban is] a policy that is poor and out of date relative to the science. It represents more fear of homosexuals than it does any type of reasonable attempt to protect safety. We need blood donors. I think it’s a mistake to risk not having enough blood in pursuit of a tiny, tiny bit more safety.”

— Arthur Caplan, director of the University of Pennsylvania Center for Bioethics
