I was discussing with my auntie how in the 70's transplants were not allowed, and then in the 80's they were, and asked that since people died by not having a transplant what evidence this had of Gods direction. He answer enlightened me. She said "transplants were dangerous in the 70's and so God was protecting his people from them."
The WTS could take the same route to get out of the bloody mess they are in. Over the last few years they have eased off on blood restrictions. They have just primed their members that God reveals new light. They can now make blood transfusions a conscience matter, but retain eatting blood as wrong. That way they remove any legal risk by being able to say that any JW that refuses blood did so without coaxing.
But how to get away with it without loosing members. Say that God was protecting his members by making blood transfusions wrong before. Reinforce the huge risks blood used to pose during the 20th century from AIDS, Hepatitis etc. Quote that old survey that 100,000 Americans used to get HepC each year from blood. Say how grateful every JW should be that God used the WTS to protect his people. Then end that now blood is not as dangerous it is a conscience matter.
JWs are so convinced that blood is bad that they will be awed at how great their religion is.
