I see loads of economical pluses if people increase blood testing, even if it's to amplify safeguards that prevent infected blood from being transplanted. Our society is fueled by capitalism, the blood banks recognize that too. However, when the potentiality of HIV being transferred though blood transfusions became fully realized, no one in their right mind wanted to receive blood from a potential carrier. At the time of this scare, AIDS was referred to as 'Gay Cancer'. Catch my drift?

Homosexually active men are not the only individuals who are excluded from donating blood....Reasons that other potential donors are permanently excluded from donating blood include evidence of HIV infection, male homosexual activity since 1977, a history of intravenous drug abuse, or a history of viral hepatitis.
