Jehovah’s Witness New Mom Dies After Refusing Blood Transfusion

Adeline Keh

A UK-based woman who was a Jehovah’s Witness, died shortly after child birth after refusing a blood transfusion for religious reasons. This choice may have contributed to her death.

Adeline, 40, and her husband, Kweku Keh, had been seeking a child for many years, London Evening Standard, reports. Adeline had endured years of failed fertility treatments, until finally; she was able to conceive naturally.

However, she became severely ill shortly after giving birth to her son, Mawsi, through caesarean section at Homerton Hospital.  She was diagnosed with  acute respiratory distress syndrome and was transferred to heart and lung specialist hospital, Papworth.

Adeline informed doctors not to give her any blood products during the course of treatment, due to her religious beliefs. Honouring her request, she was put on a machine to re-oxygenate her blood. However, the process could not be conducted effectively without a blood transfusion.

An inquest conducted last month revealed that she died on October 19th last year due to a combination of “ARDS, sepsis, an infection in the caesarean wound and “refusal of transfusion on religious grounds.”

Speaking on his wife’s death, Kweku said:

“Each time I went to pick her up from the hospital, I was told that she could not come home. Eventually my wife lost her fight and passed away and we never got to come home as a family.”

    Rest in peace lady! Who is that one that said religion was the opium of the masses or something like that….There is a thin line between faith and foolishness.

      @ baboushka,please easy with the insult. In the year 2000, I refused blood transfusion as part of treatment for Septicemia which I had. Long story short, I survived the illness but about 4 other patients who were in the hospital same time with me for various illnesses died despite the blood transfusions they had received. Most times, early diagnosis, blood transfusion alternatives like Iron dextran, Erythropoietin, blood salvage during surgeries and other recent technological breakthroughs have made bloodless medicine and surgery a HUGE success. So turning down blood transfusion is not foolishness.

    This kind of stories annoys me right to my soul. Why use the hospital in the first place when you wont take the medications and advice given to you by the health professionals all in the name of an archaic doctrine or religion? Honestly, the so called leaders of these religious bodies needs to do something about this.

    • TA

      November 13, 2014 at 4:04 pm

      Doctors usually recommend what they think is best, which is fine. But you are at liberty to CHOOSE whatever form of treatment you so desire. That is not archaic. Actually, if you are able to discuss alternatives with your doctors, that shows you are an enlightened/informed patient. If you told your doctor you were allergic to an anti-malaria drug like Chloro quine, is the doctor/pharmacist not usually able to prescribe another anti-malaria drug you may not react to? Regardless of what you may have been told or know, you can actually choose the form of treatment you think its best for you.

      So in summary of your epistle what is the alternative to blood transfusion?

    There are alternatives to blood transfusion, even doctors agreed to it and encouraging it. Let’s leave religion and be real..blood transfusion has caused more harm than gain. She must have died due to complications and not because of lack of blood transfusion. I think we need to respect people’s right to their faith. I bet she wouldn’t have forgiven herself if she got the blood transfusion and died eventually.

    • yt

      November 13, 2014 at 1:39 pm

      In as much as there are alternatives, there are still situations wherein blood transfusion is the best and only option.
      Blood transfusion has its own harms, but could have saved her life via : improving her oxygenation and even aid healing of the infected site and recovery from the sepsis.

    • Ibilola

      November 13, 2014 at 4:28 pm

      Exactly! There are situations where blood transfusion is the only option for survival. I work in a Neuro/Trauma ICU and we’ve had situations where a car wreck patient/family refuse blood d/t their beliefs and end up dying.

      November 13, 2014 at 6:33 pm

      Just like Bruno said you are unwell Lindo. Relgion has everything to do with. When I was much younger my friends sister died cos of this same issue she had a d and c while she was in school then she came home and was bleeding like hell she was rushed to the hospital by neighbours only for her folks to refuse giving her a transfusion, she had to be discharged cos they didn’t know what esle to do she died in a taxi conveying them home. They don’t celebrate xmas they don’t do burials and I think they don’t vote not too sure, I had a number of them as neighbours. Just like someone pointed out why go to the hospital in the 1st place if you are going to reject options given you?

      Well my wife was at the mayo hospital in Rochester Mn. the best doctors in the world, said she would die if she did not get blood, I am not a witness like she is, I told the doctors to give her blood, the next day she was a new person!, These JWs are sick to watch a loved one suffer and die, why do they even go to the hospital in the first place????

    November 13, 2014 at 1:06 pm

    There were other causes of death listed along with her refusal to take blood transfusion. Why is no one holding the hospital responsible for their failure to prevent and treat the Aard and sepsis which could be fatal? At least , she died with her faith and conviction intact. I know that Jehovah will call her during the resurrection and she will answer. This present life isn’t all there is. Now we know that she gave an excellent answer to the devil’s question to job ‘ that everything a man has , he will give to redeem his life’

      You don really try preacher. So getting blood thru transfusion is from the devil? That is what will make her go to heaven or hell regardless if she have fallen short in other aspects of life?

    November 13, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    That’s one thing I hate about u religious people, you make a lot of excuses, pls always choose life over death, she would have survived assuming they did the blood transfusion, now she’s dead and a little boy is motherless.

    Religion should be ban, once u enter the hospital all religious beliefs should be throw out the door. They should make a law like this,

    By the way, didn’t this woman use science to conceive a girl, so why was she running away from blood transfusion that could have saved her life, blood transfusion is extremely safe and harmless, they screen the blood, I don’t know about nigeria but oyibo people dey screen blood.

    Religion makes people dumb

    • TA

      November 13, 2014 at 4:30 pm

      @ Bruno, I hope you also know that screened blood is not equal to safe blood. There is no such thing as ‘safe blood transfusion’. Go and ask your doctor. But in the interim, know this; there is something called a window period for HIV infections, which means that if for instance, I contract HIV today, and I am volunteer to donate blood next month, the infection may not have shown up in my blood. So it is passed as safe blood. And HIV is just one of many diseases that could be in ‘hiding like that’. Even if it is HIV safe, any time someone is transfused with blood, the immune system shuts down initially in response. So, imagine someone is battling an infection, does a blood transfusion still sound safe to you? Please talk more with your doctor or check Google. Thanks

    • bruno

      November 13, 2014 at 7:48 pm

      @TA, every medical procedure has risk, even common pandol has risk, the probably of getting hiv from blood transfusion is very low, this is 2014.they scrEen the blood thoroughly with NAT, this detects the slightest hiv strain in blood during HIV window periods, this happened in the UK for crying out loud, they have the best health care system with latest technology and equipment.

      Stop making excuses, this woman will be alive assuming she did that blood transfusion, and she would be with her baby boy (who she conceived thru the help of science) now that boy is motherless.

      Many jehovah witness have died because refusal of blood transfusion. Not only blood transfusion but refusal of taking liver or kidneys or refusing to do organs transplants .

      You people are doing ur self oh. If my doctor tells me blood transfusion will save my life, I will run and do it immediately, especially if I have a new born baby boy and a family waiting for me at home.

      Would you rather take a risk and live or stay there in that hospital bed and die.

      Would you rather be infected with HIV and live or stay in the bed and die.

      My answers are YES and YES

    • bruno

      November 13, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      @TA, I know u have been brain washed and there’s nothing I can say to set u brain back to its original settings, but if you obey the bible about blood transfusion, also obey the part of the bible that say, you shouldn’t eat shell fish, u shouldn’t wear clothing of two different fabrics, stone disobedient children to death, don’t work on sabbath day (some pregnant women go into labour on sabbath days, so we should abandon them or wait till monday). Nonsense.

    • bruno

      November 13, 2014 at 8:15 pm

      @tA, you are a pretentious person, you are talking as if it was fear of HIV that what made this woman refuse blood transfusion. We all know it was because of her religion, if not for her jehovah witness faith she would have received this blood transfusion, and she would have been alive today with her bouncing baby boy

      November 14, 2014 at 4:20 am

      She did not content to blood transfusion because it is a clear instructions from Jehovah in the bible. You guys should try and read the bible before u condemned her,she has held on to her faith n bible trained conscience n Jehovah will bring her back to life in the nearest future to live forever not for a short time n still die again. Let me ask all you who are throwing stones, do people not take blood n still die?there are other complications involved for crying out loud.

    November 13, 2014 at 2:33 pm

    You’ve said it all!
    Even the bible says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge”….

    I hope her son Mawsi grows up to be strong and not need a transfusion, since his mother could not breast feed him

    If not, that would have been a double loss…

    Once again, people have a right to believe whatever faith they want to… Please don’t insult her. Thanks

    Adeline RIP. The sad thing about this is there are thousands of other Jehovah’s witnesses that will readily die instead of accepting a life-saving transfusion. The thing about cults is the indoctrination involved and mind-control completely eliminates any form of reasoning. Her poor son, sigh

    Y’all talking trash about Jehovah withness, I really really pity for you. The bible gives instruction on how to be a Christian. You are either in or out. When you dedicate your life to God you don’t waste time in standing for what is right weather you end up dead or not. Read Leviticus 17:14 and acts 15:20. You can bend Gods law to suit your selfish desire. No way. Life Is beautifulGod gave us life so we owe it to him to obey Him. There are millions of new mum who die every day even after taking blood transfusion just the way there are millions of a Jehovah withness women who has done numerous suggeries and still alive! As a Jehovah withness I am proud to say it’s not blind faith. We follow the bible instruction. Simple. Life is more meaningfull because you now fully understand the bible and apply it in your daily life.

    Each & everyone has his/her own right to make decisions.
    The decision she took to refuse transfusion was purely hers & the truth is, she didn’t make it because of her religion but, because of her own biblical beliefs.
    Therefore do not blame her death on anyone.
    Pls do not judge.
    If u don’t understand why Jehovah’s witnesses act in ways u don’t understand, ask questions and listen.
    If you don’t wanna ask, don’t criticize & be quiet.

    I think think that Lady is brave. So brave. I wish i’lld die in a position where I proved my integrity to God like that. What is in life that you are desperately clinging to? That woman made the best choice available. She chose God. The bible clearly states abstain from blood. If your doctor tells you to abstain from alcohol will you have it injected in your veins? Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in a resurrection hope God has promised in various places in the bible that there will be a resurrection. John 5:28 and 29 is just one. Before you keep calling her foolish think of your lives.. how have you proven to God you can obey his commandments even if you were facing death. Abraham was willing to sacrifice his only son. What have you sacrificed in expression of faith to God. May the God you honestly believed in Jehovah resurrect you to a happy new life where sickness and death will be no more dear Adeline. # humbled #faithinaction

Why didn’t they have an alternative to blood transfusion, we know there is and most doctors are opting for this kind of treatment? It’s good she died upholding bible principles, her goal is on the price- everlasting life that God through Jesus Christ will soon reward.

    to all of u insulting Jehovah’s Witnesses for their stance against blood transfusion, u should know that more and more doctors and even non-Jehovah’s witnesses are recommending bloodless surgery because of the increasing health risk and rising cost of blood. When our Creator commanded Noah, the Israelites and us to abstain from blood, u think He doesn’t know what He was saying? I know of a friend who had a heart surgery WITHOUT blood, he survived. sadly, those who had surgery with blood the same day with him all died because the blood was contaminated. u all chose to ignore the other factors that led to her death, instead you curse her for her faith. Jehovah, the God she chose to trust in WILL resurrect her and all who choose to stand up for what they believe irrespective of what others say.

    I read with utmost dismay some of the proves rendered by members of the JW church, I respect every religious beliefs however twisting the scriptures is misleading, inappropriate and unfortunate. The passages quoted in (Genesis 9:4; Leviticus 17:10; Deuteronomy 12:23) never talked about Blood transfusion as the case is today, it clearly states that: you must not EAT meat with BLOOD in it because the life of every living thing is in the blood and as such the blood should rather be poured on the altar to take away the people’s sins. Apparently, the people then were used to eating meat with blood in it, like eating uncooked or fresh meat which is animalistic in nature and because it was symbolic in the sacrifice for people’s sins, which was a yearly practice then. Blood was sprinkled by the Priest for cleansing of people”s sins. Today, How many of the Jehova’s witnesses still sprinkle blood for the remission of people’s sins? Christian’s do not sprinkle blood anymore as we have one sacrifice JESUS CHRIST who has offered himself once and for all for our salvation. In verse 13 of Leviticus, it clearly talks about catching an Animal or a bird and what you should do before eating them. That you must first pour the blood out on the ground and cover it with dirt. In verse 14, it still talks about eating, and ONLY eating, never said anything about saving ones life from blood transfusion. TRANSFUSION IS NOT EATING. And you can’t transfuse an animal blood into a human being as it is being stated in the scriptures. This passages is being misconstrued and misinterpreted. Please JWs, read the whole of those verses given before you decide to pass as knowledge. I am tired of all the excessive religious jargons being passed today rather than obeying the most important commandment Christ has given to us LOVE. Love God, Love your neighbor.

    All of you that read your bible upside down and twist interpretatios may God forgive you all. You are busy posting links from people that survived surgery without blood transfusion; is every sickness or sick individual’s case the same? What if she had the blood transfusion and survived? If the doctors assessed her case and discovered that she required the blood transfusion to survive is there an alternative? Heaven can only help those who help themselves. Its as simple as that.

    That’s not a good analogy you are making, please read the scriptures very well. If the doctor ask me to stop taking alcohol, it is only for health reasons, perhaps I have overstretched my liver or my kidney needs urgent attention. If instructions were given to the missionaries then, it was to avoid certain contamination. So its not the same thing. Please read for yourself the whole of that chapter.
    Acts 15: 1-end was directed at the GENTILES who at that time ate {in quote) ritually unclean food that had been offered to idols, animals covered with blood. It was a cultural thing for them then. Listen to what Peter said in verse 10 & 11, …..putting God to test with loads of doctrines that even our ancestors could not abide by, No! we believe we are saved by grace of the Lord Jesus Christ… Now I ask you, are you a gentile? Do you offer food or animals sacrifices to idols?
    Listen Christ said in matthew 15:11: it is not what goes into the body that corrupts a person, it is what comes out of that person that makes him corrupt. Citing another clear example using the laws of Moses, about 600+ of them. The doctrine of Moses prescribed death sentences for a female adulterer, recommends an eye for an eye, tit-for-tat.. et al. Can you today live by that same law? For it says if you so default in any one of them, you are thereby guilty of all of the 600 plus laws. Can you live by such laws today? No! You are saved by grace through the one sacrifice that Christ already paid on the cross. Live in the new law that Jesus sets for you and I. Simple: Love. Our commission today is to show the same kind of love that Christ showered on us by giving himself up for us.
    BTW, If I so refuse blood transfusion and have no love in me, what is the use?

    wow. I’m pretty surprised at how opinionated people are who have commented on this. Jehovah’s Witnesses are not cults. I have jw friends and they’re actually very nice normal people who just believe different things than non jws. One thing i can say is what if she did get the blood transfusion and died anyways? You wouldn’t see them on this site basically calling her stupid or crazy or whatever else just because she made a decision of her own free will that resulted in her dying anyways. Just saying everyone has their own opinions, but no need to be disrespectful about it.
