If you found out your blood was a rare cure for a desease, would you feel obligated to donate it?

i would feel morally obligated to donate but thats me, not everyone shares the same set of morals.. i used to donate on a regular basis just because i have a rare blood type, then i started doing alot of drugs that i wish i hadn't gotten into, i have since quit doing drugs(cept pot) but just haven't gotten back into donating because i take meds for pain management and as such i think that makes it where they can't use my blood.

Considering my panic disorder would cause me to pass out over and over again if I ever tried to give blood, I don't think I'd be able to.
User avatar #80 to #37 - theugandanhero (06/22/2013) [-]
For a reasonable amount of money, I would.
#128 to #80 - fukyu (06/22/2013) [-]
so then no you wouldn't feel obligated to donate... there is a difference between selling and donating.. not saying you're in the wrong for selling it just saying the question was would you feel obligated to donate not sell. personally i can't say 100% that i would donate it, i am struggling to make ends meet and would be very tempted to also make a profit on it since we all know the pharmaceutical companies would make more than a little money on your blood, you might as well get your cut too.

well even if my blood could cure every disease ever according to dumb ass federal laws I wouldn't ever be allowed to donate it anyway.

You say you aren't able to donate it, but you don't give a reason?
User avatar #62 to #61 - sparkyoneonetwo (06/22/2013) [-]
I am not allowed to donate blood for the fact that I am homosexual.
#208 to #62 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
No. You can give blood as long as you haven't had sex with another dude, if you are a virgin and homosexual you can donate all the blood you want.

Homosexuals have a higher chance of becoming infected with certain diseases, like HIV and Hepatitis. If you have any of the mentioned diseases they won't appear on tests until you've had it for around half a year. In some countries homosexuals can donate blood, but only if they have had the same partner for more then that duration of time. (1/2 year)

If your blood could cure a disease, I am sure they would ask you to stick with one dude, test you for HIV/Hep. and if you were negative, use your blood as a cure.

In most countries, the demand for blood is met, so the risk of allowing homosexuals to donate, is not worth it.
User avatar #212 to #208 - sparkyoneonetwo (06/22/2013) [-]
Virgin or not saying you are gay at place to donate blood they wont' let you do it anymore and you will be added to the list of people that are never allowed to give blood.

Saying gay people are at higher chances for STD's is bunch of bull **** as well. Being gay and ******* a bunch of dudes unprotected you would be at a higher chance but, using protection gay dude has the same risk level as any other guy.
User avatar #241 to #212 - wiredguy (06/23/2013) [-]
It is statistically true...
A far, far higher percentage of homosexuals carry STDs than heterosexuals.

Sucks to be us, right?

I still reckon it's nowhere near serious enough to justify that law though. That's just ******* retarded.
It's an excuse, and it makes me want to... I dunno. Write an aggressive letter.

I'm just trying to straighten out the facts.
#240 to #212 - anon (06/23/2013) [-]
Receiving anal is the easiest way to contract AIDs through sexual contact. This is not discrimination, it's a medical fact.

Detecting AIDs is incredibly difficult. It's pretty much invisible for the first several months. We actually look for the antibodies, which still won't be in high enough number to detect until the disease is advanced to a certain extent.

So it's generally accepted that male homosexuals with an active sex life should not donate blood because they have the highest risk of being infected. It's just statistics.

Sidenote:
The reason AIDs was associated with gays in the early 70s(?) is because it was easiest for them to spread it to each other. Someone noticed a high correlation between the two and made an (incorrect) assumption that the disease was caused by homosexual contact.
#136 to #62 - spacedunk (06/22/2013) [-]
Really? That's actually the law?

What the actual **** ?!?
User avatar #138 to #136 - sparkyoneonetwo (06/22/2013) [-]
yeah it's pretty ****** up
#245 to #136 - jacofhearts (06/23/2013) [-]
I went to donate blood once and the woman asked me "Have you every had sex with a man who has had sex with another man since the year 1960?"
"No, but if I did, would that be a problem?"
"Absolutely. Homosexual men carry out a lifestyle that makes them more prone to HIV and AIDS."
And I just stared at her. "... That's ridiculously close minded."
"Yeah, well, show me one study where it's not true. You can't. Every year studies are conducted and money is spent on doing these studies because people like you doubt this. Every single time, it shows that homosexual men are far more likely to have HIV or AIDS and we don't want to take any chances."

So, the reasoning is, they're assuming that, as a homosexual male, you **** EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME, WITH NO PROTECTION, and they want your donation to be clean.

Well, you are a dude, right? You know what an average dude's sex drive is like, right?
#354 to #245 - ARRRGGGG (06/23/2013) [-]
If there was no reason for that policy yeah that'd be ****** up but if they're being backed by statistics why are you getting mad? When you're dealing with blood that is going into people who may be on the brink of death, physically weakened, prone to infection, and are just very susceptible in general would you be picky on which donors to accept?

personally if i was you and got put in that hypothetical situation where my blood could cure everything but by law couldn't donate cuz of sexual orientation even if they did make an exception i would refuse and tell them i am sorry but my blood is too gay for you remember.

screw that, you were discriminated against just because of your sexual preference you should charge by the eye dropper full. teach them a lesson.. there is a reason we can test blood for diseases, besides gays don't have any diseases that straights don't get. its not like your blood will turn someone gay.
User avatar #123 to #116 - sparkyoneonetwo (06/22/2013) [-]
yeah but, I don't wanna be that huge of dick. If my blood had that kinda power I'd want to use it for good. who knows maybe my blood would end up saving someone I love. So while making a big of cash out of my blood I'd still not be that dickish.

i guess you are just a better person than myself. i know if i was in your position i would be pissed off.. course none of this matter much since its a hypothetical situation.

The majority of religion: where a menacing book of exaggerated fact written by vindictive, authoritarian heterosexual supremacists claims that the universe's creator wants you to be generous and save lives but never donate your blood, even if it saved others.

Course, there are some people who simply believe there's just a creator that trusted them enough to allow them willpower to decide what to do. But it's never that simple.

It's actually not that big of a deal, seeing as there's much less of a demand for that type of blood.

I was actually told this by someone who works in the Blood Donation industry when he gave a lecture at my University.
Of course, you should give blood regardless of your blood type though.

I don't see why he has to donate. It's his own blood, so its up to him to donate or not, regardless of the basis of his reasoning. And forcibly taking blood from him is not just disgusting, it also breaches a ******* of ethical codes.

What you've said makes no sense in that context as well. How does it help advancement for someone to allow people to die by saying "Nope. Sorry. Can't help you. God doesn't want me to give blood.". That's ridiculous.

Growing up has nothing to do with hate, everyone hates something even if they know it doesn't matter in the long run. People hate cigarettes because they can kill you but the people that smoke them know this but continue anyway, the same goes with alcohol, drugs, races, religions, and even simple things like TV shows and music. You as a person are allowed to hate literally any and every thing that does or will ever exist.

There are thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses who all believe the same thing he believes. I've been to the mass gathering they have at their selective temples every year. I've heard their sermons, I've witnessed their beliefs, and I used practically live with a family who were Jehovah's Witnesses who tried to convert me from being someone who doesn't believe in any god to a practicing Witness. So..granted...thousands of idiots is a valid enough reason to hate religion. The fact that religion produces things like this is disgusting. Is hating the Nazi's not legitimate simple because a few didn't bash a Jew's head in? Were they not terrible because some of them might have hated Jew's, just wanted to be in the military?
And yes, it is a valid comparison.

One of the kids of this parent I am talking about was told that as long as she lives in the house that she will go to church and believe what the family does and if not they will be sent away. Also, once they are out of the house if their beliefs change then they will no longer be apart of their family. The other kids of the family have fallen under the same banner as the parents. I'm sorry, I don't see how that's not brainwash.

User avatar #373 to #371 - osimonmagus (06/23/2013) [-]
Why wouldn't you hate religion? This isn't saying hate all the people practicing the religion, this is hating the existence of religion. You know, that thing that has caused there to be unrest, killing, murder, oppression etc in the Middle East since the dawn of man kind writing down words?
"BUT NOT ALL KILLING IS DONE BECAUSE OF RELIGION!"
No, but it certainly doesn't help.
"BUT RELIGION CAN LEAD TO GOOD THINGS TOO!'
Then why haven't those good things exposed themselves in the most active religious place on earth? One would deduce that the more religion there is the more turmoil there is.
"BUT MUH RELIGION"
The best someone can do who is religious (yes I know you said you are not) is to be a good example for as long as you can. You and a thousand others may do a good thing with your faith but the larger picture is that you wanting to do good with your religion actually causes more trouble than its worth.
>"BUT THIS ONE THING?!?!"
Well, the guy said he had about 10,000 or so reasons why. I'd say there is more reasons to despise religion than there are to praise it. One good thing may help one person but when it kills fifty ...it's not logical. If this one thing was the only problem with religion would it justify hating it? Of course not, it would still be a nuisance. Hell, I'm not even religious and I think the Abrahamic religions and all that has come from them are the most destructive things on the planet right now, but I'd give my life if this was made the only problem just so people I cared about wouldn't have to live in a world where religion destroys everything it builds.


User avatar #378 to #373 - thetoyscissors (06/23/2013) [-]
It gives people hope and I can see it helps them at times. However they want too explain the universe is their business, so I don't hate their personal way of explaining it. I know it does bad. Everything does bad. Every child born takes away more resources from already finite pool. We still view every childbirth as a good thing. We send men and women overseas to kill people we don't know for some vague and yet still morally false goal. We still call these people heroes and award them with only the highest respects. Everything does something bad in its own right. Yet, we don't hate everything. Or many things for that matter. So, here's what I ask. Why hate religion? Oh, boohoo, it does bad things and conflicts with your personal beliefs. People want to believe in something, let that be. There doesn't really seem to be a reason to hate religion. It doesn't make people stupid. It doesn't make people violent. It doesn't set people's views. People are stupid by nature. Not a goddamned thing you can do about that. People are ****** in the head and become violent. Not a goddamned thing you can do about that. It doesn't set people's views, in fact, I bet you that most Christian's haven't even read the bible. Their views are dictated by them, and them alone. As for your "religion helps killing" thing, it doesn't. People who are set to kill will do so anyways. They just choose religion as a scapegoat. Religion didn't make them do anything. The ****** anatomy of their brain did. Emotions did. Religion isn't perfect, and it isn't nice. Nothing is, though. So, why are you aiming your guns right at it when there are so many other perfect goddamn targets? Religion is just as bad as anything else in the world is. It's even as bad as Atheism. As science. As bad as video games, books, newspapers, TV shows, movies, math, knowledge, ************* nature. Nature kills a lot of us, why aren't we pointing our guns at it? Books have been the reasons for murders, why not blame it?
User avatar #381 to #378 - osimonmagus (06/23/2013) [-]
For chrissake, sure it gives people hope but goddamn, you have an entire area of the planet that cannot sit down and agree on something because they believe in a different book!! Without that book that's one less thing they would have to disagree about!
Could you imagine the world today if the Middle East didn't have to worry about religious differences? Nothing you say to justify religion is going to justify it. In no way, especially abrahamic religions, does it do more good than harm. It separates people.
"So do politics!!" - Yeah, but you can't have a world without politics. You can have a world without false books that automatically make entire countries hate each other. A video game has not caused a war, a book has- a religion book.
Science has not caused a war. TV has not caused a war.
Nature does not wage wars for religion or politics, it kills for instinct. And actually that comparison has pissed me off beyond measure and I cannot hold this conversation any longer because that is so goddamn ******* ignorant I don't even want to hear what else you have to say and I would like to refrain from having to insult you and make you feel like the fool you are. Good day.
User avatar #379 to #378 - osimonmagus (06/23/2013) [-]
What's bad about atheism? Tell me what direct effect that atheist has caused.
'Religion didn't make them do anything"
Well, that's where you're wrong. The atrocities caused by religion are by people who believe their God. The conflict with Israel all started because a man wrote in a book that a certain people were destined to have that land. They have been killing for that land ever since that book was written. That is a direct cause from religion. It started that mayhem. There is no scapegoat, there is no 'brain is ********* , religion cause that. Religion caused people to sacrifice virgins for the Sun god to bless them with harvest, etc etc. Is religion used as a scapegoat? Sure, it's called the Catholic Church. BUT WITHOUT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IT WOULD BE ONE LESS THING TO WORRY ABOUT.
Ending religion is going to save the world, but keeping it around is only going to make it worse. It hinders social progress, anyone can see that.
Science creates weapons, it also tells everyone that weapons are bad.
Video Games- have ratings
Shows-have ratings
Books- Not **** , it's called religious text. Mein Kampf didn't cause anyone to kill a Jew or a Slav. Books in modern age can be read instantly by nearly everyone on the planet if needed. It can be deemed bad or unwanted very quickly.
Knowledge-What????
Nature- Well, people hunt, people put of fences. Nature isn't killing because someone told it to, Nature kills do to instinct. Nature is innocent. None of those things combined can cause the destruction religion has caused to the human mind. Religion is outdated. You have to start thinking realistic and not just throwing out anything to defend religion. We can tell people that all those things are bad and people can read about it and learn about it without consequence. Try and tell someone religion is bad and you get war. You get riots, you get a social stigma for it. Try and tell the world a game is bad and what? "Thanks, I won't buy that then."

Depends im O neg and I do a process nicknamed double red, that's where they hook you up to a machine and get some nutrients out of the blood and give it back to you so you can give two pint's instead of one.

He's in Australia and he donates blood plasma. The Australian Red Cross Blood Service allows plasma donations every 2-3 weeks.

As blood plasma, in contrast to blood, can be donated as often as every 2–3 weeks, he was able to reach his 1000th donation in May 2011. This results in an average of one donation every three weeks during 57 years. Commenting his then record number:
I could say it's the only record that I hope is broken, because if they do, they have donated a thousand donations.

Well if your blood cured over 2m people then they'd probably make an exception

That's nothing-a woman named Irena Sendler saved THOUSANDS of infants from the Warsaw Ghetto, bribing guards and telling the Nazi officers she was going there to help and check on the sick holocaust captives, and would smuggle out the newborns in baskets back to her ambulance, and she had a trained dog with her that was trained to bark when the babies would cry so they wouldn't be heard. She was a runner up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She lost to Al Gore. What the **** .

Wow, he's been donating blood for 123 years. Amazing.
User avatar #348 to #347 - phsycokidx (06/23/2013) [-]
Based on what math?
User avatar #351 to #348 - icedragon (06/23/2013) [-]
You can only give blood 6 times a year, thus that man would have needed to give blood for 166 years in order to break 1000.
User avatar #355 to #351 - TommyV (06/23/2013) [-]
every 45 days, actually.
User avatar #356 to #355 - icedragon (06/23/2013) [-]

i just gave blood last week, i can confirm this, any you beat me to the punch my dear sir
User avatar #399 to #356 - TommyV (07/25/2013) [-]
The RedCross uses different standards than AABB.
Red blood cells will replenish themselves completely within 56 days.
(As in, the blood in your body will be completely different blood than the blood from two months ago.)
That is why they say 6 times a year, or roughly every two months.

But that is well outside the actual amount of time it takes to replace the one pint that you donate. (which is roughly a week or two)
User avatar #350 to #348 - TommyV (06/23/2013) [-]
How frequently the FDA, CDC, and AABB allows people to donate blood. Every 45 days.

1,000 times would mean 45,000 days which is 123 years. Rounded down.
User avatar #352 to #347 - spamalope (06/23/2013) [-]
Donating blood plasma, therefore he can donate twice in a seven day period
