    Isn't that how it is with society though? Whites are willing to give everything to the community and other groups simply take until the whites are sucked dry and have no more life left in them to give? Genetic defect of white people. Gullible and easily tricked. For the life of me I can't understand why people would give away blood for free when the hospitols sell it at such high cost and it obviously drains energy from you. You care that much about someone else but then when you need that transfusion they don't care about you. They want you to pony up the money first. So it is with everything in society.

    From what I know I can go in to the hospital in advance, before an operation to stock up my own blood. If possible this would be my first choice.
    In an emergency my life is more important, then the blood in it.
    after I recover, and have my strength back, I would go on a cleansing fast to clean out my entire system of the drugs and any contaminants.
    I do this once a year anyway for 10 to 20 days.

    According to the Bible, the soul is in the blood.
    Would you want part of some strangers "soul" in you?
    Maybe its like being possessed.

    I dont eat blood either, The African Maasai tribe drink the blood of Lions in order to be "possessed" with the strenght and courage of a lion, not sure I would want to take on the atributes of a pig by eating black pudding, might explain a lot of modern behaviour however.

    I'm a very sick person. I have/have had much more than another man's blood in me. Some of those things are permanent. Ethnic compatibility of the donor was a must, however. I'm not certain if that's the case for all transplants, but it certainly was for mine. The doctor even inquired about my ancestry and said a bit of other British was fine, but Polish, for example, probably wouldn't be. anyway, it's kept me alive up till now so I'm not complaining

    I've always had three things I have felt very uncomfortable with, even way back before I understood my Heathen values -- fear of heights and deep water (fjords, anyone?), and sharing blood with other than kin.

    Well, blood is just blood. It's not the river of Jesus' tears, or whatever else religious folk tell themselves. Unless you have a brain transplant (or implant), your character or 'soul' won't be altered or impinged upon in any way whatsoever.

    I'd be a bit iffy about accepting blood. I have my doubts about the whole scanning process, what with all the restrictions they have in place.
    I won't be able to give blood for a while. Why? Because I have tattoos. I know for a fact that I am clean of any diseases, but they still won't let me give blood because of my tattoos.
    And you know what's really hypocritical? They are in desperate need of it.

    So, unless my life absolutely depended on it (as in I would die if I didn't take blood), no, I wouldn't accept blood.

    Well isn't that pretty much the only time when people get blood transfusions :p? Massive bloodloss? People don't usually do it for fun unless they are very weird, I would imagine.

    Anyway yeah sure why not. Not doing it reminds me of that family in the USA who didn't want their kid to get chemotherapy and wanted to do some religious "healing" or whatever it was.

    Don't take it personally, it's just that there are certain stereotype associations with tattoos (for example intravenous drug use) which in your case means you're in a slightly higher risk group than the "average", hence the "caution" by medical institutions.

    Stereotypes aren't necessarily true but otoh they wouldn't have been formed in the first place if there weren't grounds for them. So yeah.... it may seem unfair, hypocritical or stupid but it's a percentages game they're playing to err on the safe side of caution.

    I think you'll find that the majority of people who end up with Hep C or B or HIV/AIDS via tattoos usually got them from home studios. I don't know anyone who has ever recieved a blood disease from a clean, professional tattoo studio.
    I know for a fact that I am clean. If they're so iffy about people giving blood, they should develop a way to test the blood before the initial withdrawal from a donor.
    Get rid of all these stupid and overrated restrictions.
