Lib Dem Conference motion proposed by Chris Ward to demand the government go further to protect the blood bank and open it up to responsible gay and bisexual donors.
"Science Not Stigma - Ending the Blood Ban" will be debated at Autumn Conference in Birmingham. The motion calls for the government to end the ban on gay men and their partners from donating blood and to base donor criteria on the risk posed by individual behaviour rather than membership of societal groups.
We need as many Conference Voting Reps as possible to support this motion before we submit it to Conference Committee on 29th June 2011.
Welcome to our website, where we will continually update you and other supporters of news on our campaign to urge the coalition government to end the ban on men who have had sex with men (MSM) from donating blood.
