Coercion to Refuse Blood
Today I uploaded a new article to my blog documenting instances of inappropriate coercion to have Jehovah’s Witness patients refuse blood.
The article clippings from the early 1950s are a must read. They share the story of Bethelites who came home from Watchtower for the sole purpose of forcing their will against blood transfusion onto their unconscious sister. Your eyes will pop when you get near the end of this story.
The later articles from reputable news sources and vetted medical journals further demonstrate that inappropriate coercion continues, though these days it is more sophisticated with Watchtower’s Hospital Liaison Committees and all.
The article it titled Coercion to Refuse Blood and is available at: http://marvinshilmer.blogspot.com/2011/05/coercion-to-refuse-blood.html
