  • Blood Transfusions

    Why do JW's think blood transfusions are the same as eating blood? Where to begin? If you ate blood, it would get broken into iron and protein. A blood transfusion would put more blood in the circulatory system to save someone's life(life's in the blood, meaning you die if you lose too much). Maybe the 19th century JW's didn't know the difference between blood entering the digestive tract ans entering the circulatory system?

    I am not even sure other than a few old testament quotes.

              She said if you accepted blood, you were guilty of bloodlust.

                Donating blood isn't life threatening...

                  JW logic, not mine. By JW logic, god would strike blood donors and blood recipients dead in the impending apocalypse.

                    That's stupid. Giving of oneself to save lives is a good thing. So, JWs think God will kill people for trying to help others?

                      Blood donations save lives
                      Saving lives is a good thing
                      Blood donations are a good thing and JWs are fools

                        JWs are very literal when they want to be about the bible.

                        Acts 15:20
                        But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

                        It is talking about eating blood which some people used to do ceremonially as part of their idol worshiping.

                        But they take it as not taking in any blood by any means.

                          They apparently don't know biology! Circulatory system is not the digestive system!

                              You mean to say someone who's involved in doctoring is not a doctor?
