A Response to the Jehovah Witness Blood Tranfusion Argument in HHS Contraception Mandate Cases

This is an short but excellent response by Kevin Walsh on those that use the Jehovah’s Witness blood transfusion  argument as to the HHS contraception mandate controversy .

See If RFRA protects for-profit corporations, what’s to stop Jehovah’s Witnesses’ companies from refusing coverage for blood transfusions?

I have heard this argument a few times now and really had no response except laughing at how ridiculous it sounded. Article lays out the response well.

Jehovah's Witnesses *blood transfusion confusion*.

Jehovah's Witnesses doctrine allows a liver transplant but not the blood that is in it.

Jehovahs Witnesses DO take blood products now in 2012.

They take all fractions of blood.This includes hemoglobin, albumin, clotting factors, cryosupernatant and cryo-poor too, and many, many, others.
If one adds up all the blood fractions the JWs takes, it equals a whole unit of blood. Any, many of these fractions are made from thousands upon thousands of units of donated blood.
Jehovah's Witnesses now accept every fraction of blood except the membrane of the red blood cell. JWs now accept blood transfusions.
The fact that the JW blood issue is so unclear is downright dangerous in the emergency room.
More than 50,000 Jehovah's Witnesses dead from Watchtowers deadly arbitrary blood ban,some estimates run as high as 100,000 dead

Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover someone who
genuinely understands what they are discussing online.
You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and
make it important. More people really need to look at this and understand
this side of your story. I can't believe you're not more popular
since you most certainly have the gift.
