Jehovah's Witnesses blood transfusion confusion

Modern Ghana/July 31, 2011

Simple fact - The Bible does not prohibit Blood transfusions. If you are bleeding to death it is more dangerous to refuse a blood transfusions than to take one.

Bloodless surgeries are great if they can be elective.1/3rd of all trauma deaths are from blood loss.

Jehovah's Witnesses elders will investigate and disfellowship any Jehovah Witness who takes a blood transfusion, to say the issue is a 'personal conscience matter' is subterfuge to keep the Watchtower out of lawsuits..

Jehovah's Witnesses children die every year worldwide due to blood transfusion ban. Rank & file Jehovah's Witness are indoctrinated to be scared to death of blood


1) JW's DO USE many parts aka 'fractions' aka components of blood,so if it's 'sacred' to God why the hypocritical contradiction flip-flop?

2) They USE blood collections that are donated by Red Cross and others but don't donate back,more hypocrisy.

3) The Watchtower promotes and praises bloodless elective surgeries,this is a great advancement indeed.BUT it's no good to me if I am bleeding to death from a car crash and lose much of my blood volume and need EMERGENCY blood transfusion.

Remember the Jehovah's Witnesses use thousands and thousands of pints of blood donated by others.They use 60% of the blood volume as broken down "fractions" then go on Bible thumping rants about how dangerous and sinful blood transfusions are.

(JW do allow organ transplants which has more risk than whole blood transfusions so their arguments of disease transmission is bogus)

Watchtower society will not allow a Jehovah Witness follower to bank their own blood ahead of surgery which is the best cheapest safest.

The Watchtower's rules against blood transfusions will eventually be abolished (very gradually to reduce wrongful death lawsuit liability) even now most of the blood 'components' are allowed.

Estimates range from 150,000-250,000 men,women,children have perished since Jehovah Witness blood ban inception year 1945.

The creeping adapted creed adhered to by the JW in 2011 is based on legal liability to keep the Watchtower from being sued for wrongful deaths. They do not *abstain* from blood they use all kinds of blood derivatives (that are donated by organizations like the Red Cross that they don't support).

They are such hypocrites!
