250,000 Jehovah's Witnesses are DEAD (since 1945) by a man-made Watchtower society ban on *whole* blood transfusions.

The JW defenders will dance all around this but even the general public know it to be true.
We hear about the deaths all the time on the general news,and when they need to the Watchtower will eulogize these 'martyrs for Jehovah'.

NOW in 2009 the blood ban is so watered down that it looks like theses thousands died in vain for a man made dogma that will soon be lifted altogether.

I was on the Gateway trail and found a bicylist that had fallen and was bleeding. He was not coherant, so I dialed 911 on my cell phone and was told that if I called.. and they came out and he refused assistance, that "I" would be billed for the trip. This fellow was seeing stars, but yet said,"no, I don't want any help".. so I wasn't going to pay for a ambulance. I then told the 911 operator to send a police car out to check on him, and that the officer could make the determination. The 911 person didn't want to do that, but I said my next call was to KARE11 to have them come out and then she said she'd send a squad car. GOOD GRIEF! Talk about what happens if you refuse care!
