she cares more about dying than she does her children. take the children away and let her go. what a waste of a life..

a mother who carries a baby for nine months and then lies back and says ok you raise the child jehovah says i have to die-- not a mother.,

you are wrong, and think earthly person

If believer have faith and conviced devotion to this faith,and eternal future,refusing blood transfussion is to avoid to lose everlasting life,according to JW teachings

if they are true teachings?
very soon end time will expose reality and maybe horible dissapointment,that God never promised in Bible,to establish NEW WORLD ORDER(new system of things)

but if God realy establish new heaven and new earth,only saved children of God will survive,and inherit this eternal heavenly Kingdom,
not refusal blood transfusions,not any refusal of phisical life,
only Grace and underserved kindness is able to SAVE POTENTIAL SINGLE HUMAN EPH 1;3-12.EPH 2;8-9

earthly??? no.. i never would die for men... men who are not scholars men who did not translate the bible men who use this org as a boys club.. that is all it is..

to give birth sit back and die because elders say no blood.... bull...

you turn your backs on Jesus Christ by not accepting him you are a cult by all definitions.

elders do not belong interfering with people's lives thye have no business they are not doctors not psychiatrists, not anything ... period they have no business doing what they do..

Jehovah will remember her if it comes down to it and it is he who is sustaining her at the present time.

I wish it were possible for her to be treated at a fine facility such as we have here in the US like Engelwood.

Perhaps, Engelwood's non-invasive procedures will be standard worldwide.

She's an adult, so she can commit this form of suicide if she wishes. It's just sad that she thinks so little of her children that she would let this cult brainwash her into leaving her children with those wolves

I can't believe that in this day and age people are still dogmatically stick to these ridiculous doctrines. Think for one second. No loving god should or would ask for someone to sacrifice their life for the sake of a PRINCIPLE.
JW doctrines rule your life. It is important that you break free.

GRIM TOLL OF MILITARY WOMEN KILLED IN WAR
 
8/11/2008 2:55:00 PM
 

132 Women Killed in War on Terror
 
July 23, 2011
 

Since the attack on America on September 11, 2001, a total of 132 military women deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait have lost their lives in service to America.
…

 Seventeen were mothers of one or more children age 18 and younger. One female soldier, whose body was shattered by an explosive device she was attempting to disarm, died in the arms of her soldier husband who was stationed nearby.

…

Heartbroken family members have expressed indescribable grief and great pride in their daughters, which is universally shared by a grateful nation.

…

but there is no military necessity to send young women and mothers to fight in close combat areas where they do not have an equal opportunity to survive,

Is there an update on her status?. If she is still alive...it's been 10 day..and she seem to be able to make her stance known.. Often ..people .who have lost a lot of blood are unconsious.. the fact that she isn't. I think is significant.. the body.. is.. capable of replemishing a blood loss. Granted she wouldn't be able to do cart wheels at the moment.. but common sense would dictate that she shouldn't be trying to. In the meantime while people are making a big deal over her decision.. She's... breathing..

. Umm! I don't get the gist of your comment?? I do feel that GOD ..(Our creator) has given us the freedom to choose the path that we will journey on.. And... IF that path is to follow his son... Well then ...there is a guidance..written in the bible to aid us in what he requires of his worshipers... There are things that might not be agreed on..by those who have no clue as to your journey... And there are fanatical people who .. want everyone.. to know what their dealing with.. Look at me.. I'm self rightous..
I don't feel..that we are here.. to be on public display.. But it appears that some are.. OR there wouldn't be so many people out there exploiting their every waking minute.. AS in say..reality TV... Let's say ..I feel ones Faith might be observed..but does not need a day by day naration.. It's GOD ..that we want approval from... not men.

hey simon... you would not understand.. if you are a jw or one of the jerks here hiding under other names..(if not i apologize) those women gave their lives to protect us and for us to be free.

what ticks me off about this so called organization is you are cowards. men who hide behind an org so you do not have to protect our country as men and women..

you do not salute the flag, you abuse your children, you do not tell the truth about religion, you are not a religion, you would probably wet yourself as a man (if you are one even if you were a woman) but yet you think you have the right to shove a cult down others throats.

those men and women joined the service.. their families are proud of them and they sacrificed their lives for us and sadly for you.

stop being cowardsm stop hiding behind this ORGANIZATION not religion and we all know it is only what about 140 years old??

your two witness rule your no scream rule and your other asinine things you believe are funny and scary.

this mother had carried her baby nine months., she chose her own selfish ignorant fears of retaliation by this org that she chose death. maybe it was her way out of this hell hole you have known by scholars and past members as a cult. she did not have to die..
Jesus told us to take the bread and wine... not to refuse it and kill newborns and others that with medical science can save lives.

Jehovah's witnesses mock the sacrifices of the women who gave their lives to protect their freedoms they greedily accept.
Of course, if it comes to playing tennis for our country and practicing idol worship by wrapping your body in the US flag, as long as the WBTS gets a kickback, Jehovah's witnesses embrace THAT.

I was wondering the same thing. Is she still alive? Although her situation is definitely extremely serious, it is possible that she might be able to slowly recover.

Your darkness amazes me-- Micah 4 says in the last days the true worshippers would learn war no more and beat their swords into plowshares--- instead they carry on the work Jesus gave them to do--go door to door with the good news of Gods kingdom and sayings of eternal life. You think killing one another is better than that and call them cowards for it---- no wonder Jesus said- satan is the ruler of this world. You prove it every post.
