saves Jehovah's Witness lives
Another point is that any Jehovah's Witnesses that donates blood is immediately kicked out of the religion which they call dis-fellowshipping. The Watchtower organization's view is that God will severely judge any person that donates blood to save another humans life. But then they readily go and accept blood fractions which come from blood which is donated by the same people who have supposedly been condemned by God. Ask any Jehovah's Witness hemophiliac (a hemophiliac is a severe bleeder) where the factor eight comes from which keeps them from bleeding to death. It cannot be manufactured synthetically yet, so it comes from human blood. In short: Blood saves Jehovah's Witness lives.
In conclusion, the Jehovah's Witness blood policy is plainly illogical and inconsistent. It is a standpoint that is struggling to keep up with modern technology and is still firmly stuck in the nineteenth century.
Good health to you.
