WATCH VIDEO: Parents refuse blood transfusion for their dying child because they’re Jehovah Witness Members

Social media users are raged with anger over the decision of a parent regarding the health of their dying child.

The father who is a Nigerian refused medical help offered him to save his sick daughter, Precious because of his Christian faith.

According to the man who is a Jehovah’s Witness, it is against their doctrine to transfuse blood.

The video was shared by activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, who met with the parents in Sapele, Delta state.

Precious suffers from Hydrocephalus and might need a blood transfusion if surgery is carried out on her.

Her father in a chat with Harrison said he is not opposed to medical help for his daughter but what he will never consent to is for a blood transfusion to be done on his 1 year and 7 months old daughter.

”We in Jehovah’s witnesses, we don’t take blood. I would not want to transfuse blood into the child. We will not accept blood transfusion. If in the course of surgery they would transfuse blood in the child, we would not want that. I don’t want my baby to die but that is our faith” he said
