CYNIC's Paul Masvidal Comments on Sean Reinert Being Rejected For Organ Donation

Earlier this year, we learned of the tragic passing of Death and Cynic drummer Sean Reinert. He was only 48 years old. Reinert was listed an organ donor, but an archaic law prevented him from being able to offer his blood, eye and tissue donations. Under current law created in response to the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, FDA regulations deem ineligible any donation from "men who have had sex with another man in the preceding five years." The law was eventually changed to 12 months.
