      Isn’t that what they all die from? Whitney over dosed herself & got drown in the tub, MJ, Prince & so many others. Did anyone ever believe Prince died of Flu like they said in the beginning? Oh well, not me. I knew there was more to his death than just a FLU. RIP

    See what religion has caused. I read somewhere that he needed to have a hip replacement surgery but because he was a Jehovah witness and they don’t do blood transfusion which might by necessary if you have a surgery, Prince refused the surgery and had to depend on pain killers to relieve him of his pain.

      Dear Overdose (you might consider a new safer name, please), Jehovah’s Witnesses seek the best possible medical care for ourselves and our families. When we have health problems, we go to doctors who have skill in providing medical and surgical care without blood. We appreciate advancements that have been made in the medical field. In fact, bloodless treatments developed to help Witness patients are now being used to benefit all in the community. In many countries, any patient can now choose to avoid blood-transfusion risks, such as blood-borne diseases, immune-system reactions, and human errors.

      That being said, abstaining from blood ( ingesting or through the veins) is a religious issue rather than a medical one. Both the Old and New Testaments clearly command us to abstain from blood. (Genesis 9:4; Leviticus 17:10; Deuteronomy 12:23; Acts 15:28, 29) Also, God views blood as representing life. (Leviticus 17:14) So we avoid taking blood not only in obedience to God but also out of respect for him as the Giver of life.

      About your statement that Prince’s death was because he was avoiding surgery that’d require blood transfusion, that is totally unfounded. Surgeons regularly perform such complex procedures as heart operations, orthopedic surgery, and organ transplants without the use of blood transfusions. * Patients, including children, who do not receive transfusions usually fare as well as or better than those who do accept transfusions. *
      In any case, no one can say for certain that a patient will die because of refusing blood or will live because of accepting it.

      Please, Google is your friend. Investigate and be educated about transfusion alternative strategies and how simple, safe and effective they are. Im sure Prince would’ve known that.

      Cheers

      Chinwe, the Bible shouldn’t be misinterpreted. The Bible commands us not to ingest blood, not to eat blood or anything that still has blood in it. Referring to some of the scriptures you quoted, as I don’t have time to analyze one after the other, nothing, absolutely nothing in the scriptures prohibits taking in blood through the veins.

      Infact all the one scriptures you quoted, uses the word “EAT” and what the apostles stated in Acts also refers to consumption of food offered to idols, blood… except JW Bible is different from the Bible we all know.

      Transfusion of blood into the body is not the same as opening your mouth and consuming blood.

      And a patient can die if he needs blood but refuses to take it. I’ll let the medical professionals educate us more on that.

      Chinwe I’m a doctor don’t spread false info about a field you clearly know nothing about.
      Many major surgeries that anticipate blood loss will require transfusion, even if it is autologous blood transfusion i.e. Blood taken from the patient in advance. No surgeon will want to take the risk if blood is needed and promise a “bloodless surgery”

      I respect your faith and choice made based on your scripture teachings but try not to spread wrong info in a bid to be so defensive.

      For your information, even non-Jehovah’s Witnesses refuse blood transfusions and because of the risk of transmitting HIV and the like which are hard to detect in its earliest stage, human error and immune system reactions and because there are transfusion-alternatives that are safer and more effective. In an advanced country like USA and with the type of money he had, Prince had access to the best of medical care.
