Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Canadian Blood Services is seeking urgent blood donations to prevent a blood shortage;
  • The current government has promised to remove the deferral period for men who have sex with men to donate blood;
  • By maintaining the deferral period, the government is complicit in stigmatizing gay men; and
  • There are many countries around the globe that have adopted a lifestyle-based questionnaire and have lifted the ban on gay blood for examples, Argentina, Israel, Italy, Poland, Russia, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Ukraine, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Bulgaria.
We, the undersigned, Citizens and Residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to lift the ban on gay men’s ability to donate blood.
