Jehovah's Witness Dies After Rejecting Blood Transfusion by dainformant(m): 8:30am On Nov 11, 2014
Speaking for the first time since his wife’s death, [her husband] Kwaku Keh told the Standard: “My wife and I were best friends. We had been trying to have a baby for some time but it had not happened for us even with the help of IVF.

“Then in 2013 my wife got pregnant without medical intervention and our only son was delivered by caesarean section. I was overjoyed and could not wait for them to come home.”

Mrs Keh remained in hospital after her son’s birth on September 18 last year to receive antibiotics for an infection. She developed acute respiratory distress syndrome and was transferred to Papworth, a specialist heart and lung hospital in Cambridge.

She had told doctors of her refusal to receive blood products, and lawyers confirmed her wishes had to be obeyed. She was put on a machine at Papworth but it could not effectively re-oxygenate her blood without a transfusion. She died two days later.

An inquest last month found Mrs Keh died on October 19 last year from a combination of ARDS, sepsis, an infection in the caesarean wound and “refusal of transfusion on religious grounds”.

Which do you think is wise: refusing help over religious belief or trying to stay alive??

It's her life.
She either had to chose to live or die.
Her preference was death --Death for the shackles of spurious and mind-twisting religious beliefs.

Whatever rocks her boat though!

dainformant:
A female member of the Jehovah's Witness has reportedly died after refusing a blood transfusion during child birth. The deceased Adeline Keh, 40, suffered a fatal infection after giving birth by Caesarean section to her son in a London hospital, where she was said to have refused a blood transfusion and died A MONTH AFTER the birth , according to reports....


Bias news at its finest! Please remove this malicious news piece from this forum or at least change the title.

Did you notice the bolded section of your report. How did refusing blood transfusion kill her a whole month after. Can someone with shortage of blood during surgery survive for a month? Don't you realise she may have died from other thing?

Why not write report about JW who have refused blood transfusions and STILL survived or better yet about people who took blood transfusions and still die.

Do you think blood transfusions save lives 100%. Do you think blood transfusions is the BEST/ New technological way to achieve successful surgery?



dainformant:

Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to accept blood transfusions because they say blood represents life, and only God is the giver of life. That belief has led to scores of controversies and also many deaths.....


@bolded section, JW did not say, God through the bible said so. We simply obey no matter what. while others choose what they obey. (If God told them to sacrifice their child, they would tell him no! They lack the kind of faith Abramham had)

Controversies and many death? What about the many lives that decision (No blood transfusion) has saved- both now and in the resurrection. Focus on the positive.

dainformant:

Which do you think is wise, refusing help over religious belief or trying to stay alive??


Trying to stay alive? For how long? Is it quaranteed that after disobeying God by taking blood transfusions- the person will survive the surgery.

Is obeying God less important than our short miserable life on this earth?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
All the post above are just based on ignorance and lack of proper information. I am not surprised because Satan said to God, "whatever a man has he will give to save his soul". In this case, many are ready to sacrifice their Faith, Loyalty, Obedience,and Love for God and commandments for TRYING (NB:no quarantee) to save their soul only to discover that they can't outrun death.
