LINKS FOR JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES ON BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS

We are grateful that Mrs. Researcher has put together Internet links of some of the best articles for understanding this very serious life and death issue.  Perhaps you have some you would like to recommend as well.  Here is what she has to share with us:

• On all blood transfusion topics:
Associated Jehovah’s Witnesses for Reform on Blood: http://www.ajwrb.org/
I especially recommend Jehovah’s Witnesses the section on the biblical perspective: http://www.ajwrb.org/bible/index.shtml

• On the doctrinal basis and the ambiguities of current policy:
Article: “Jehovah’s Witnesses, Blood Transfusions, and the Tort of Misrepresentation” Journal of Church and State, September 22, 2005. Author: Louderback-Wood, Kerry
Written by an attorney who was personally affected by the no-blood policy.  It seems longer than what it actually is because of the number of references listed, which give it substance and credibility. The essay exposes the vulnerability of the Watchtower Society to tort claims because of the religion’s misrepresentations of secular writers in the 1990 pamphlet: “How blood can save your life”, published by the Watchtower Society, used to teach Jehovah’s Witnesses the no-blood policy for the last two decades.

Now the full article is available online for free:

• On medical advances for bloodless procedures:
No blood!: http://www.noblood.com
This was a major site and excellent source for information on bloodless medicine. We would like to see the Watchtower Society provide financial backing for this site since the service they provide can help save lives of JWs who cannot conscientiously accept blood or blood products.

• Also on doctrine and policy:
JWfacts
http://www.jwfacts.com/watchtower/blood-transfusions.php

• Excerpt from “In Search of Christian Freedom”
http://www.commentarypress.net/cpn-essays/English/4C648686-695D-48C7-ACA8-A52794ED6128.html

• Library of blood links:

Some of you might have seen it before, but them it may new to others, and if a life can be saved, lets spread the word!

    I do not use blood and will not ever have blood transfusions. I’m a faithful member of congregation of Jehovahs Witnesses. To anyone that does not properly understand the blood issue they need to speak with one of our faithful brothers who is more knowledgeable than I am

      Friend,

      Do not shortchange yourself. Go study your material on the topic. Come back here and explain to us the evidence you find in the Bible against blood transfussions. We look forward to hearing from you, unless you do not feel you can find evidence in the Bible to support your view.

      When the Bible says abstain from blood it’s talking about not eating blood from the sacrifices of idols. Not blood transfusions.

    These are the latest leaked link on secret elders letters on blood transfusion and other surgeries etc.

    Thankfully the courts can beat the legal dept of the governingbody and protect the minor children.
    I wonder how many witnesses died or were df”d for not properly bleeding meat? Yet they ask this child to die for them. Child sacrifice Jer 25.

    Dear Alex
    Thanks for posting the links, I hope that some Jehovah Witness brothers and sisters will be able to use them to “carry their own load” on their conscience in this matter, rather than the Watchtower Society’s load . after all, their decision will affect THEIR and their LOVED ONES’ lives, not the Society’s Directory and Governing Body members’ lives. Brothers, just for a second consider what would be your load before Jehovah if you had rejected the gift of life unnecessarily, or even worse, if someone else died unnecessarily because of your decision.

    I have a couple of ammendments to suggest to the post:
    -The link for the article “In Search of Christian Freedom” is part of the section about doctrine and policy, as is the one from jwfacts, so if you can, put it under the same subtitle s the jwfacts link, so it is understood what I recommend it for.
    -In my last sentence I wrote “Some of you might have seen it before, but them it may new to others, and if a life can be saved, lets spread the word!” Obviously I did not proof read it and it should say: Some of you might have seen this information before, yet it may be new to others, so if a life can be saved, lets spread the word!”

    (You may not publish the section of this post on ammendments, just leave my comment, and if you can spare a minute, fix the above post.)

    Thank you very much for allowing me to make a contribution to push this cause a step further.

    Bless you

    Mrs Researcher
