    Hey! I look after my own blood. No way I will ever need a transfusion. Why should I have to donate my blood just so some lazy sicko can get out of the hole he’s bled himself into? That’s just unconstitutional!

    (Canadians appreciate their health care)

    Ironically enough, Gammagard and similar blood products come from Canada.
    .
    A major (scandal is too kind of a word for it) in the blood industry in the U.S. in the mid 1990s ended the collection of many blood products in the U.S. Over 1100 people died from HIV from contaminated blood. The companies involved were getting blood donated from criminals in prison and street people who wanted to supplement their income. Hepatitis, HIV, you name it.

    When my mom and dad were dating, he used to sell his blood to pay for their nights out. She thought it was romantic. Four kids later, apparently she was right.

    I like the Icelandic and Australian systems – more or less.

    Just so you know, the blood that gets donated goes to children, parents, grandparents, and our troops. But if you want to be a selfish jerk, go right ahead and not donate, but keep your comments to yourself if you have nothing nice to say.

    They do tend to have some nice snacks for you to have afterwards, but knowing that your donation will save lives is a great feeling, too.

    They won’t take my blood in Aus. ’cos I lived in the UK in the eighties … “Mad Cow Disease” times …
    (Safer that way !!).

    Personally, I’m not 100% sure JP was serious…

    I can’t even donate. Not old enough yet.

    Time to calibrate your sarcasm detector.

    Strod knows me! Just trying out some of the anti-medicare arguments I’ve seen on these lists.

    Not long ago I was at an emergency c-section (I am a respiratory therapist) in which the mother was hemorrhaging and the baby lost blood as well. The baby would not have survived if it were not for the blood donation (in which he received in the resuscitation immediately after birth) of some kind soul. This baby required full resuscitation (chest compressions and everything) because of the blood that he had lost, his body could not function. I am very happy to say that the little boy (and his mom) are doing just fine. Basically, it literally saved his life, nothing else would have worked. When you literally see with your own eyes the good that things like that do, and the lives it does save, you appreciate it all the more. I pray that you are never in an accident or emergency surgery in which you would require life-saving blood, but you never know when or if that would happen.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Thankfully, they have come a long way in screening the blood that is donated and used!
