      The passages I have seen used is found in Leviticus 7:11, however when you read the context of 10-14 this is in reference to the sacrificial system for atonement. This text cannot apply because Christ fulfilled the sacrificial system Hebrews 10. Acts 15:20 is also used, however this is in reference to its connection to idolatry and false worship. The problem is when giving a transfusion your not eating blood but its being used to save a life. Except these 2 passages there is nowhere in Old Testament or New Testament that forbids it to save a life.

        The kindest thing I can say about such interpretations is that they seem overly legalistic. It's the same impression I have of absolute pacifists who would condemn the police officers who shot the gunman wandering the halls of that elementary school. The lens through which we should view such situations is the two Great Commandments.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

          The JW blood thingie is just something they started to make their cult distinct from their mother cult, the SDA. Simple truth is, about TXs, if God didn't want them to work, they wouldn't. Our blood isn't interchangeable with that of any animal. And no one can show me where it's a sin to save another person's life, except in a few Scriptural cases where God commanded the Israelis to kill everyone in some places & they failed to obey.
