    I agree, but in reality, there are changes in this classic issue. Many Jewishnesses ignore it, and special (usually private) dispensations are given (especially to hemophiliacs), and several states tell doctors to ignore it in emergencies when a child's life is threatened, and so on. In non-emergencies, courts are increasingly giving hospitals OK to treat with blood products, and child protection are suing the parents under child abuse statutes for chronically ill kids.

    I'm a Jehovah's Witness and I have a reason based in the Bible to not have blood transfusions: This is a religious issue rather than a medical one. Both the Old and New Testaments clearly command us to abstain from blood. (Genesis 9:4; Leviticus 17:10; Deuteronomy 12:23; Acts 15:28, 29) Also, God views blood as representing life. (Leviticus 17:14) So we avoid taking blood not only in obedience to God but also out of respect for him as the Giver of life. Hope this helps! 😁
