I read this page http://www.jwfacts.com/watchtower/medical.php about old light about organ transplants..
Anyways so here is the timeline in short after reading that page.
Organ transplants Acceptable in 1961
...it does not seem that any Scriptural principle or law is involved. It therefore is something that each individual must decide for himself." Watchtower 1961 August 1 p.480 Questions from Readers
Organ transplants unacceptable in 1967
"Sustaining one's life by means of the body or part of the body of another human...would be cannibalism, a practice abhorrent to all civilized people… It is not our place to decide whether such operations are advisable from a scientific or medical standpoint… Christians who have been enlightened by God's Word do not need to make these decisions based simply on the basis of personal whim or emotion. They can consider the divine principles and use these in making personal decisions as they look to God for direction, trusting him and putting their confidence in the future that he has in store for those who love him" Watchtower 1967 November 15 pp.702-704
Organ transplants still unacceptable in 1975 for some preposterous reason. The oddest one yet. Hell, cannibalism made more sense then this
"A peculiar factor sometimes noted is a so-called 'personality transplant.' That is, the recipient in some cases has seemed to adopt certain personality factors of the person from whom the organ came." Watchtower 1975 September 1 p.519
Organ transplants now acceptable in 1980
"There is no Biblical command pointedly forbidding the taking in of other human tissue…. It is a matter for personal decision…" Watchtower March 15, 1980, p 31
So in summary a total 13 years in which Jehovah Witnesses lost their lives for a wrong, laughable and down right stupid reason.
All I'm looking for is lawsuits during because of this doctrine. There had to be some uprising, not from the brainless pawns but from family members who lost loved ones during this period. Any help finding news artistically would be much appreciated. Thanks
