Witchtower view on corneal transplants.

    Over the years WTBTS teachings on many types of tissue replacement have gone up and down more often than a whore's drawers.

    Did they ever pontificate on corneal transplants (which I believe were being done before kidly and heart)

    If they have not rescinded the stand on this, is it nowadays right or wrong to have them??

    It is my understanding that all transplants from 1967-1980 were considered canabalism. Which would you rather be a jw going blind in 1979 or a jw going blind in 1981?

    I could be wrong on the dates, but check it out or maybe someone has the quote handy for you.

    I also believe cornea transplants are just like organ transplants, and they viewed it as wrong between 1967 and 1980. Of course, all it takes is one Washtowel or Kingdumb Misery article, and we can go right back to banning them--or making things even more complicated.
