    Jehovah's Witness heart patients do well without blood transfusions

    CBC News Posted: Jul 03, 2012 11:57 AM ET Last Updated: Jul 03, 2012 4:25 PM ET

    Jehovah's Witnesses, whose religious beliefs prohibit them from having blood transfusions, had fewer complications and shorter hospital stays than other heart patients who had transfusions for surgery over a 28-year period at Cleveland Clinic, a new study concludes.

    Jehovah's deny need of transplants or transfusion. It's against their beliefs so in my opinion, it's the only natural reaction to "witness heart patients to do well" without it. How else would they support their rules?
