So, I wanted to ask you all, and if some of you happen to be Jehova Witnesses PLEASE let me know about this. Ok, it's widely known fact they refuse
blood transfusions. "Blood is also sacred in God's eyes. God says that the soul, or life, is in the blood. So it is wrong to eat blood. It is also
wrong to eat the meat of an animal that has not been properly bled. If an animal is strangled or dies in a trap, it should not be eaten. If it is
speared or shot, it must be bled quickly if it is to be eaten.—Genesis 9:3, 4; Leviticus 17:13, 14; Acts 15:28, 29. " OK THAT is from their "offical
web site" The Wtchtower. Ok, so the point of my post IS, I'm dating someone who was raised with this religion. I'm trying to be cool about it, but
it bugs me. So ANYWAY, his mother had an organ transplant. But what is the difference between a transplant and and a transfusion. Ok, chemically duh.
But it seems like splitting hairs to me. Doesn't the person need a transfusion when they get an organ transplant away?
