Patient Contracts HIV From Kidney Transplant

I sure am glad they’re banning gays from donating blood because of that huge risk of transmitting all the HIV we’re carrying, unlike organ transplants, where the risk is totally negligible. Oh, wait. You’re telling me a patient contracted HIV from a live kidney transplant? And it’s “the nation’s first documented case of HIV transmission via a transplant from a living donor since a sensitive test for the virus was approved and implemented for donor screening in 1985”? Better cut the gays off from donating their insides, too.
