Unofficially it's already been done. When you go to donate blood, there are a series of like 30 or so questions that you must answer..they're basically yes and no questions....One of them has something to do with Have you had sex with a gay male after 1970 somethin..if you check yes, they won't let you donate's along the same lines as if someone travels to a third-world country..can't donate blood for like ten years since the time spent there...only sex with gay men prohibits one from donating blood for the rest of their life...main reason significantly lowers the risk of HIV being transferred.
