I needed to go to the ER for a fairly routine matter. The hospital did not have good privacy practices. They closed curtains but you could not help but overhear everything. I was anxious in the setting. A patient was refusing blood transfusions. She had some blood disorder. I was struck by how calm the medical doctor was at her refusal. She was an attractive woman who appeared calm. I frequent ers with more privacy so this was the first time I overheard this decision in a real life setting.
It upset me. The blood doctrine can appear abstract on the surface. I don't feel she should receive the transfusion. She also did not strike me as mindless Witnesss. A real life person so certain that Jehovah is tangible and the blood doctrine is the only one to perceive God's commandment. It upset me a bit.
One time I would parrot the words. Was she really parotting?
