    It would be classed as Brazen conduct. And the individual would more than likely be marked

    Iā€™m off for a smoke! šŸ˜†

    It really does not make sense that say a JW offers to donate blood say for a relative with the same blood type so they could get the blood faction they need and then possible face sanctions but a friendly apostates donated blood is split into faction the JW can accept it.

    Can't believe I accepted all this stuff about blood.

    Giving blood for medical reasons (blood testing, dna testing, allergy testing, glucose monitor testing, high iron counts, ect....) is a non issue within the JW cong.

    Thou shalt not waste ones semen on the ground either but its necessary to test for a successful vasectomy. + 97.3% of JW males wank it regularly and 97.1% of the 97.3% of them do so without repercussion.

    Just sayin...

    Giving blood for testing is not a problem since it is thrown away once the tests are complete.

    The conundrum for witnesses is that fractions they are permitted, such as interferon, require several pints of blood donation...they need to be challenged with this piece of rank hipocrisy.

    Before testing the blood is stored. And JWs say, that blood should not be stored for any purpose. How does that fit in here ?

    JW say that giving or receiving blood, is an abuse of blood. But blood can be provided for medical tests and then can be thrown away. What a convoluted Logic. No wonder its a CULT

    Blood drawn for testing is not necessarily disposed of.

    A striking example in this discussion is premature infants, who cannot tolerate the loss of even a few cc's of blood.

    When blood absolutely has to be drawn, it is reinjected later.
