The CDC Doesn't Want You Donating Your Slutty Organs

Illustration for article titled The CDC Doesnt Want You Donating Your Slutty Organs

Boned more than two people this year and trying to donate an organ? GOD, keep that to yourself! And by that the CDC means whatever organ you had in mind.

The CDC's new proposed policy will ask donor candidates about their specific sexual history and discourage those with a rather—ahem—active lifestyle from donating. The CDC believes those who've had more than two sexual partners in the last 12 months have higher risks of transmitting life-threatening infections like HIV, hepatitis B and C. With these personal questions, the CDC aims to be more transparent with patients though it is already putting off many potential donors. I mean, geez, way to be a bunch of prudes. Good sexual health does not necessarily correlate with numbers of sexual partners.

However, people who fall under this proposed skanky category aren't entirely banned from donating. If an extreme situation arises where that donor's organ can be life-saving, a more scrutinized testing will ensure the organ is good to go. That is, if you're still willing to donate to the place that morally judges your organ to begin with. [MSNBC]

It's simply risk mitigation. Same reason why anyone who has lived in Africa, or homosexual men, or anyone who has taken any kind of illegal drug in the last 12 months, can't donate blood. They are simply groups that are statistically at a higher risk.

The time and man hours saved by pre screening probably saves more lives than if they were to not pre screen and allow EVERYONE, simply for the sake of "equality". Idealism vs reality. I'm sure that the American Red Cross and the CDC wish they could have more donor participants, but the infrastructure to handle letting 100% donate now and then test and filter 100% later isn't there.

I'm sure this pre-screening enrages a lot of people's liberal sensibilities, but the logic behind it isn't all that difficult.
