More on Greens LGBTIQ agenda
During the week we sent out the Greens’ new LGBTIQ policy and highlighted their position on same-sex ‘marriage’, Safe Schools and removal of religious freedom. A closer inspection shows that there are 14 areas they want change on… including hormones for teenagers to ‘change gender’, funds for mental health and foreign aid for LGBTIQ, IVF and adoption and more…
They’re also campaigning for people to be able to give blood regardless of their ‘sexuality’ or their sexual activity. The Greens claim that the ‘screening’ and testing procedures should be able to sort out if any blood is defective!
There are currently valid safeguards are in place, to protect the integrity of the blood service. The Australian Red Cross, which co-ordinates the Blood Service, does not allow anyone to give blood who has had homosexual male-to-male sex for a period of 12 MONTHS prior to donating blood. They note that they do not discriminate against people because of their ‘sexuality’ but, rather, they have regulations based on sexual ACTIVITY.
See the Fact Sheet from the Australian Red Cross Blood Service:
Keeping the blood supply safe – male to male sexual activity
There have been previous calls, and a long-running anti-discrimination complaint in Tasmania, to try and get approval for homosexuals to give blood – this now puts it as formal Greens policy
This is what the Greens say in the Greens LGBTIQ Election Plan:
BLOOD/MARROW DONATION BANS
The Greens believe that your capacity to donate blood or marrow should not be determined by your sexuality, especially when HIV screening and other medical interventions have advanced so far.
What do they actually mean by this? Presumably they don’t want any restriction based on whether people are actively engaging in male-male sex… they expect the ‘screening process’ to weed out any infected blood!
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.

True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
