Do people make an informed decision when they decide to become a Jehovah's Witness?

Pew Report also states; in the last 10 years total membership of christian denominations are down 7%.
Jehovah's Witnesses in this same time frame rose some 7%, thus Jehovah's Witness are doing 14% better than other so called christian denominations.
Everyone who gets baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses have to give heartfelt answers concerning their own beliefs and those of God's word.
Unlike many so called preachers who baptize those who have an emotional response to a sermon, without knowing what they are really commenting to

to make an informed decision, one must have all the information upon which to make a decision.
this is not what happens in a jw book indoctrination study.
they give you a carefully guided tour through the bible, ensuring you only see scriptures which agree with their doctrines.
their arguments are emotive not logical.
they try to squash any contrary information, labeling it apostate, or from opposers etc.
all bad press is hidden, or argued away, or dismissed as being from an unreliable source.
this is not how you reach an informed decision.
not a single jw is able to show the "food at the proper time" from 1919 when jesus allegedly appointed his "faithful and discreet slave". not one has made an informed decision about this. all believe the lie.

The only information people get is what Witnesses cram down their throat.

If course. We have the best teaching programs in the world when it comes to the Bible. We give people the most information to make an educated decision.

Absolutely. Those desiring to be baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses are not forced or seduced into baptism. Rather, they dedicate themselves to Bible education, participate in the volunteer ministry work, and apply Bible principles in their life prior to making the personal choice to get baptized.

Catholicism is the One True Faith and a person can know this with certainty by reciting the rosary each day with care.

Yes, before one gets baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness, they must learn what the Bible teaches and put it in to practice. One has to qualify to get baptized. By the time one is ready for dedication and baptism, they will be fully aware of all that is involved of being one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
It’s a big decision, a choice that no one can make for you, every individual has to decide for themselves. I have been baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses for 14 years now, the best decision I ever made.

JW's think they do, but the information they base their decision upon is false, misleading, and doctrinally unsound. 1John 2:18-22 declares such doctrines are the "doctrine of antichrist."
