JWs (Jehovah’s Witnesses) and Blood Transfusions

I agree that adult JWs should have the right to commit suicide, by any means they choose including refusing blood transfusions. All citizens should also have this same right.

In Canada, JWs have the right to murder their children by denying them blood. This is surely more serious than aborting them, and more serious than infanticide. The practice must be stopped. Currently, no other group has the right to murder their children. Freedom of religion means no particular religion gets special treatment. By JW (Jehovah’s Witness) reasoning, Christians should also be allowed to shoot gay people because their religion demands it. One man’s religion must never override another’s rights including a child too weak to stand up to his parent’s insanity.
