Costa Rica lifts ban on gays donating blood

Costa Rica's President Oscar Arias has signed an executive decree that ends a prohibition on Gays donating blood in the Central American nation. Activists say that Arias has been strong on GLBT equality, believing that all humans have the same rights. Alberto Cabezas, who led the fight, says that Costa Rica now has set an example for other nations to follow suit. In the United States, gay men may not donate blood.
