Each couple must determine if and when they will employ appropriate methods of family planning. Granted, their decision would be particularly telling if there were confirmed medical assurances that mother or child faced grave medical risks, even a probability of death, with a future pregnancy. Some in that situation have reluctantly submitted to a sterilization procedure as described earlier to make sure that no pregnancy would threaten the life of the mother (who may already have other children) or that of a child who might later be born with a life-threatening health problem
So...let me get this straight...the WTS says, "No!" to sterilization, right ? But, then they turn about face and allow that, if, "mother or child faced grave medical risks, even a probability of death," by another pregnancy, then, it's "OK"? Or at least understandable ? Especially if she has other children ???
So, why not allow the same 'humane' or even "godly" reasoning when the JW mother has other "grave medical risks" that may kill her ? Like when she needs a blood transfusion ?
My JW mother was too old to get pregnant, but, she had several kids and a husband when she was smothered to death by the GB's blood ban. She never got that 'humane' consideration or forgiveness that JW's who are considering sterilization.
Damn hypocrites...they can't keep their own doctrines from conflicting.
