    The Mormons’ issue with blood transfusion comes from the prohibition on eating blood.
    That means that Mormons are also not allowed to have a good steak.

    I grew up a Jehovah’s Witness (until I was in the second grade when my parents got divorced and subsequently left the church) and when I was born the church members suggested my mom go to a specific doctor who was also a JW. He had delivered a lot of people’s babies within that church and came very highly recommended, so my mom had him deliver me and my twin sister. When I was born I had a medical problem. I don’t remember the specifics, but it had something to do with having an enlarged heart. The doctor said I needed a blood transfusion in order to live. When my mom pointed out that this was against their religion, this doctor (a JW) told her to ignore the church, not to tell them about it, and give me the blood transfusion to save my life. My parents VERY EASILY broke the rules of the church to save my life. And over time both of my parents left the church. So I can 100% believe that this indoctrinated family only needed an excuse to break the rules of the church to save their kid. People do that within the Jehovah’s Witnesses all the time, it’s just not talked about.
