The technique of transfusing blood was mastered in the year 1916, but Jehovah God chose to give "increased light" to the Governing Body re transfusions in 1945 (July 1st Watchtower). If giving and receiving blood is such a terrible offence to God why didn't He enlighten us in 1916? Why wait 29 years? Does anyone have any Witness literature re blood transfusions prior to 1945? I've seen one pro-transfusion article in a 1940 "Consolation" but surely there has to be more than that?
PS If your child needs a blood transfusion to survive and you refuse permission, and then he dies.... how is that not murder?!
