This morning we posted Mark Brush's story about giving blood, including why some people are disallowed from giving.
The story started with a post to Facebook about giving blood, and the comments you posted about the rules for giving.
Now that the final story has been posted, people are still reacting.
Anita Weber says, "Here's one way they can start...by using different sized needles! I've been turned away three times because they only use one size of needle. I avidly exercise so I'm not buying them telling me to lift weights more! My veins are the size they are! Their loss! I wanted and still want to donate!"
Carrie Paps responds, saying, "I give all the time, 2 gallons so far, but I understand the issues. Sometimes my iron is too low and sometimes they can't find a vein."
Craig Hennigan still objects to rules for giving blood. He says, "The lifetime ban for gay men is still stupid, homophobic, and wrong."
