I have an interesting question to ask people of both beliefs.Jw’s claim that blood transfusions should not be taken, and that the Hebrews back in the OT and the NT would not have taken a blood transfusion. Is that true? Do Muslims when their life is in danger, and need a blood transfusion, do you take one? Why am I asking this? Because of the Watchtower organizations stance on the issue. Are Jews and Muslims forbidden to take blood? If not, can you point out please where it states so? If so, same thing. Thanks.
The Watchtower organization states that Hebrews were forbidden to eat/drink blood, and the same thing in the NT. They claim that God would not have allowed and does not allow anyone to take blood. What is the stance on this from both view points? What do Jews believe about this issue from the Torah and in modern times? Same question posed to Muslims. Of course, no one would deliberately drink blood, that is disgusting, but what about taking a blood transfusion? Is it forbidden for Jews and Muslims to take one if your life is in danger?
