Why do people ignore this fact?
This is a reputable magazine and it isn't even ours.
Jehovah's Witnesses for years have been refusing blood transfusions. Yet, many opposers and ex-JW will falsely claim that we are ignorant of medical facts. That we make up this doctrine just to kill our children. We owe this advance knowledge to Jehovah who stated in Acts 15:29 "to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication. If you carefully keep yourselves from these things, you will prosper. Good health to you."
Now medical associations are also acknowledging that it is for the betterment of your health.
What are your thoughts?

"All Jehovah’s Witness patients refused blood transfusions."
That seems incredible ...That not one of them would compromise their beliefs to "save their lives". And because of their devotion to their beliefs, the general public will now benefit from what they have done.
In modern times Jehovah’s Witnesses have been very open in expressing their Bible-based views, even though this has not been popular. For decades they have warned of the dangers of smoking and drug abuse, the shortsightedness of permissive child training, the bad effects of entertainment saturated with illicit sex and violence, and the risks of blood transfusions. They have also pointed out the inconsistencies of the evolution theory. More and more people are now saying, “Jehovah’s Witnesses are not wrong after all.” Had we not been so open in making our views public, they could not react this way. And do not overlook the fact that by making such a statement, they are taking a step in the direction of saying, “Satan, you are a liar; Jehovah is right after all.” What a powerful motivation for us to continue following Jesus’ example, publicly speaking the word of truth!
