"We expect more out of this advisory committee and this administration than to uphold an unnecessarily discriminatory policy from another era. The most critical issue is to ensure that the blood supply is safe and abundant, and this means maximizing the potential donor pool and making sure all donors are screened appropriately and assessed based on actual behavioral risk independent of their sexual orientation."
