I did not know that you did not want to discuss the medical part.
It is a given that there are risks with any medical procedure. JWs do not refuse blood because it has risks. The blood brochure that came out in the 80s made that point very clear.
JWs keep telling each other the dangerous lie that modern medicine has made transfusions unnecessary.
In cases of large blood loss - car crash, stabbing, shooting, hemorrhage - the choice is still very simple. Blood transfusion or death.
These things are not the topic of this thread.
What do you mean by OP?
That is where the author of the thread explains their point and sets the specific topic.
It is an annoying feature of all forums that people often don't bother to read an OP.
Later this evening I want to link the context of Genesis 9, Leviticus 17, and Acts 15.
