    Blood Transfusion Refusal

    Apart from the Jehovah Witness sect, are there other people who reject or refuse to have life saving blood transfusion?

    Thank you for your organization.

    Take a look at the Handbook on Cultural, Spiritual and Religious Beliefs, published by South Devon Health Care in the UK, and type "blood transfusion" in the search box. It shows that several religions have some concerns about blood transfusion, but only Jehovah's Witnesses categorically refuse.
