A group of Democratic lawmakers Monday urged Health and Human Services officials to move swiftly on a pilot study on blood-donor policies so that the "indefensible" and "discriminatory" ban on donations by gay and bisexual men can be lifted.

During Thursday's national prayer breakfast, President Obama said, "I am my brother's keeper, and I am my sister's keeper." The problem is that he actually believes it.
