State University has a commitment to fostering an environment of mutual respect and non-discrimination that it rigidly enforces and prides itself upon. The president of the university faces problems when the town that State University is located in faces a blood shortage, and the State volunteers to host a campus blood drive. However, the polices of the Red Cross and the American Medical Association, and blood banks continue to uphold a policy that bans men who who have ever had even one male on male sexual encounter from donating blood, a policy that many people find discriminatory. Should the president let the campus blood drive go forward?
