Tasmanian blood case wraps up

Although it's now been about 3 months since the Tasmanian blood case was last in the news, it appears that case is now drawing to a close.

Michael Cain, a gay Tasmanian, has proceeded against the Red Cross, saying that it has discriminated against him as it refused to take his blood because he is gay.

The Red Cross says in effect that it was protecting blood users. In his closing submissions, counsel for the Red Cross said that it would be more altruistic for gay men not to donate.
