Mrs Baxter, of Naas, Co Kildare, died of acute cardiac failure caused by blood problems in Tallaght Hospital on September 15, 2009. The Jehovah's Witness died five days after surgery to remove a tumour from her colon, after which she suffered significant bleeding.A woman with a 98% chance of surviving surgery dies because she has refused blood. The madness of this tragic decision becomes even more incredible when you realise that the blood issue came about, not because of a biblical injunction to abstain, nor from a misinterpretation of Bible verses regarding blood, but because of one mad man’s irrational opposition to vaccination.
Surgeon Diarmuid O'Riordan told the inquest there was a “98% to 99% chance she would have survived if she was given the appropriate blood transfusion”.
In 1919 Clayton J Woodward became editor of the JW publication The Golden Age magazine. in 1923 an article appeared that proved the first shot in a salvo against vaccinations. Under the title The Great Vaccination Fraud! the writer claimed, “It has been shown conclusively that there is no such thing as rabies”
A 1925 edition however commended the man who frequently donated blood.
But in 1929 the magazine declared, "Thinking people would rather have smallpox than vaccinations, . . . Hence the practice of vaccination is a crime, an outrage and a delusion . . . it has never saved a single life"
In 1931 Witnesses were told, “vaccinations are a violation of the Eternal Covenant God made with Noah”
In 1931 members were informed, "All reasonable minds must conclude that it was not the eating of the blood that God objected to, but it was bringing the blood of the beast in contact with the blood of man."
In 1945 blood transfusions and all blood products were officially banned as pagan and dishonouring to God.
In 1951 Woodworth died and in 1952 the organisation declared that vaccinations were now officially allowed; but the ban on blood transfusions has stayed. You can read more here
It was never about blood at the beginning but vaccinations which, according to God’s mouthpiece, were a fraud and an abomination. It became about blood because of the association with vaccinations and transfusions by vaccinations. But since 1952 vaccinations have been allowed so why hang on to the blood transfusion nonsense?
It beggars belief until you realise that it is about power and control. And when you see the people who are in control that’s when you really start to worry. You think governments are bad; take a look at that crowd in Brooklyn HQ and thank God that at least we can vote governments out. Who is going to get rid of the guys at the top of the Watchtower? What comfort is there for the family of this poor deceived woman and many like her?
