Don't taint the lifeblood of discourse: From this Sprigg grows frightening ideas!

Dear Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Blood Safety and Availability (ACBSA):

It has come to my attention that tomorrow, the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg will testify before you, in hopes of keeping the ban on gay blood donors. So let me now give you a pre-taste of what kind of mindset you will be getting from the FRC's Senior Policy Fellow:


Call me a bleeding heart (with ineligible blood) if you must. But somehow I think the majority of the American public would agree that a man who calls for exportation and criminalization operates outside the boundaries of conservative interest, working instead inside a hurtful realm wherein the desired discriminatory endgame informs the carefully plotted, spun, and cherry-picked maneuvering.

Thank you for your time, attention, and belief that I should be free to live as an unjailed citizen of this country,

Jeremy Hooper
