End The Blood Ban
This campaign aims to change the Canadian Blood Services ban on the donation of blood by men who have had sex with men (MSM) in the past five years. This policy is based on outdated science and stereotypes, but doesn’t take into account the use of protection in sexual activity, the various risk levels of different types of sexual interaction, or the donor’s relationship status into account, or substantial technological advancements in blood testing.
A significant portion of blood donations are collected during blood drives at the University of Toronto and other post-secondary campuses. For this reason, we must continue to challenge this policy that needlessly discriminates against a community that includes some of our members.
