Medicine: FDA to reconsider Blood Donor Ban

The FDA is scheduled to reconsider a 20+ year ban on blood donations from MSM (men who have sex with men). It's so easy and commonplace to screen for HIV these days that a ban is just not necessary. I, for one, hope they do reconsider and lift the ban. Blood products are too precious and scarce to keep millions of people from not donating.
