A 66-year-old British man said after giving 125 pints of blood over the past 50 years, he was shocked to be asked if he was pregnant before making a donation at a clinic in Stirling, Scotland, reports Fox News.

Leslie Sinclair told the Daily Mail he was ultimately turned away from the clinic for refusing to answer the pregnancy question, noting he was a man in his 60s.

“I am angry because I have been giving blood since I was 18 and have regularly gone along,” Sinclair, a father of two, told the Daily Mail.

“I’m very happy to do so without any problem. There is always a form to fill in and that’s fine – they tend to ask about medical conditions or diseases – and clearly that’s because the blood needs to be safe. This time around, there was a question I hadn’t seen before: ‘Are you pregnant, or have you been in the last six months?’ which required a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.”

The question has been added to “promote inclusiveness,” according to the director of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service.

Marc Turner told the Daily Mail: “Whilst pregnancy is only a relevant question to those whose biological sex or sex assigned at birth is female, sex assigned at birth is not always visually clear to staff. As a public body, we take cognizance of changes in society around how such questions may be asked without discrimination and have a duty to promote inclusiveness — therefore all donors are now asked the same questions.”
