Surprisingly this category of "No To Blood Transfusions" and if you do have one you will be DF if you are a baptized JW and shunned by all of your friends and family in the religion indefinitely .
And even if you are not baptized yet you will still be marked as a person who has violated Gods commands and you will still be ostracized from your family and friends for who knows how long.
Then their is the pressure from family and "friends" encouraging the child to refuse a transfusion and be loyal to Jehovah and if the worst did happen and they died they would be assured of a resurrection into their New World Paradise.
Coupled with all of that is the JW liasion committee that involves themselves in such cases putting added pressure on the young child not to give in his resolve to refuse blood because he would be letting down his God his parents/ family and all of his friends at the kingdom Hall who expect him / her to remain faithful.
What a tremendous load of pressure that is to put on a child.Loss of family friends and support at such a young age.
No wonder he/she would feel compelled to refuse a blood transfusion with all of this hanging over their head in their vulnerable state and at such a young age.
And then their is the AWAKE magazine that shows all of these children who put God first and died for refusing to take a blood transfusion at the direction of the WTB&TS / Jehovah`s Witness religion and held up as martyrs for doing so.
If that`s not child abuse at its worst then I don`t know what is.
The JW/WT religion should be taken to court and charged over this abuse of children .
Child Abuse that leads to the death of a child.
