First of all I am going to need some help with this...any added info is very welcome. Help me make sense! Sometimes getting my thoughts down is hard, I know what I mean but others are..eh? LOL
I wanted to use these comparisons ,after all it was the Jews who did write the old testament.
I can recall reading from a Jewish man, that eating blood and blood transfusion are totally different.

I've come upon this late due to Passover and the recent death of my
late mother, may she rest in peace, so I apologize to those who have
attempted correspondence with me and have not received a reply. But
this topic I feel I must reply to because of the severity of the
accept at face value and how important blood this is to the JW's then
that leaves three other points that bother me deeply.
chewing, digesting, the full process right through the digestive
tract. Jews say a blessing before eating to express their gratitude to
the Al-mighty for having provided them with food and given them the
ENJOYMENT of eating. Yes, there is pleasure in eating food and G-d is
to be blessed for that. There is no blessing said over medicine or
food not permitted to be eaten (in the case of the Jew this means
non-kosher food such as pig, crayfish or snails). Since we Jews wrote
the Bible, we know what it means.
primarily because it does not enter the digestive tract. The fact that
bodily nourishment may enter the blood stream the same way, could in
no way be considered eating as the digestive process is bypassed, and,
in the case of blood, it could hardly be regarded as enjoyment. Blood
is probably better regarded as a medicine in this case as it has no
role to play other than controlling/removing illness or directly
sustaining life; like a drug or an injection for, say, influenza.
strict vegans? It is impossible to remove blood 100% from flesh. Even
we Jews do not do that. Merely removing blood by salting or grilling
the meat is acceptable to us. Letting it drain from the flesh is not;

Just something I wanted to add about Organ Transplants
Years ago this was a no-no; it was likened to cannibalism etc... People wouldn't take them... Died, children lost their lives and we know many people were DF if they went against the WTS.
New Light! It’s a conscience matter and transplants are O.K
What about all those innocent people who died over something that was not truth? Very blood guilty!
What about the people who were kicked out and shunned by family?
Now the blood policy is changing, even many still frown upon taking blood but it is changing and many people are dieing and died over something that wasn’t truth.
Confuses me and angers me, why people can’t see something is wrong with “truth” that changes continually over the yrs. God does not change his truth with the times, only man does!
This cult has killed many innocent people, it has to stop.
