    Thanks for posting this news,someone needs blood every 2 seconds,give the gift of life!
    I was a non-donating Jehovah’s Witness for 33 years and now a regular Red Cross blood donor with my ‘blood buddy’ girlfriend.
    Jehovah’s Witnesses blood transfusion confusion
    Jehovah’s Witnesses 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.

    People would do better to invest in companies developing artificial blood and various bio-technologies than to help perpetuate this wasteful and inept organization.
