    However, congregations have never been instructed to disfellowship those who voluntarily take blood transfusions or approve them.

    What a pack of lies, I have known of instances that they have been DF'd for this. SHEESH............. idiots.

    Oh wait............. I just noticed the date of that WT, it is true they didn't start DF'ing people for it until the 60's

    Well, that explains something for me. Around 1960 or 1961, before my grandmother died, she was very ill with cancer and cirrhosis (did I spell that right?) of the liver, and the doctors recommended a blood transfusion. Now, my mother, who heroically refused a blood transfusion for herself when I was born, and had to switch hospitals, have four doctors in attendance, etc., not only allowed my grandmother to have a blood transfusion BUT, according to my dad, made HIM go pick up the blood from the blood bank and take it to the hospital! And he was a servant at the time. My dad told me about that just last year, in a drunken moment, and it just blew me away. Somehow I don't think anyone in their congregation knew about it . . . .

    Did you know that if your pet had to have a blood transfusion, you couldn't give it one??

    that rare period of hope between the end of the vaccination ban and the beginning of the blood ban.
